How to remove Leviton Quickport from Faceplate

Is there a good/correct way to remove a Quickport from the Faceplate?  Specifically for a Cat5e.  I have reconfigured some wiring and need to remove a few and goto a smaller plate.  It seems that they fit in there so tight that it is about impossible to remove it without the little flex tab on top breaking or trashing the faceplate?!  Am I missing an easy technique here? Thanks very much for any help you can be in this matter!

There's no easy technique if the faceplate for your plug covers the flex tab on the connector to much to remove it. However if you have a paper clip or something else relatively small you might be able to push the flex tab down enough to remove the cable without breaking it.

I wouldn't worry about any kind of shock hazard as the voltage on any of those lines is barely enough that you would feel it if you pushed it to your tongue while energized.

I have wired (2) cat5e connectors using 568B and still seem to be getting collisions and no connectivity. I have re-wired these several times making sure I am the same on both sides. Any ideas?


I would make sure you have the wires pushed all of the way to the end so that it's reaching the metal connector at the tip. Often times there is a wire or two not reaching the very tip and therefor is not fully connected.

Xbox wont turn on


Hi,
Your console should turn on when the eject button is pressed. Press the eject button on the front of your console.
If the console turns on when you press the eject button but not when you press the power button, the console faceplate might not be attached properly. To make sure that the faceplate is attached correctly, you should remove it and reattach it.
  • Position your console horizontally, as you would position a DVD player.
  • Unplug the power cord and any other cables connected to the back of your console.
  • While holding your console firmly, curl your fingers inside the oval USB door on the front of the console.
  • Push the faceplate away from the console with your thumb until the faceplate comes off.

Note You will need to use some force to remove the faceplate.
Once the faceplate is removed, look at the tabs on the back. If any of the tabs shown in red in the illustration below are broken, order a replacement faceplate by contacting Xbox Support.
If none of the tabs are broken, re-attach your faceplate by pressing it firmly until it clicks into place.Try to turn on your console again. If removing and reattaching the faceplate did not solve the problem contact the xbox support.
Thank you!

Got power to cd but no display


One idea that comes to mind is,if I remmeber correctly, that model has a removeable faceplate, try this, remove the faceplate,take some denatured alcohol on a Q-tip,clean the electric contacts on the back of the faceplate and also on the front of the deck where they mate together repeatedly for about 4 to 6 times letting them dry between each time that you swab them clean, then replace the faceplate onto the deck being sure that you are seatting the faceplate completely and properly.
This has worked for me sometimes and sometimes not, its worth a try.
Good Luck !

I need to wire a network cable into a wall plate purchased at home depot. the plug is not rj45 but a block with 8 screws and different colored wires. the problem is the colors don't match cat5e wire.any...


I have tried this, and my suggestion is to go back and get the proper wall jack. How much are headaches worth to you? If they are worth more than the wall plate, just **** it up and get the correct one.

Cat5e Single Socket RJ45 Ethernet Network Face Plate


My preference is to use the T-568b if there is not already a standard where you are doing the installation at. The A and B are just different standards to terminate an ethernet cable.
TIA/EIA-568-A, T-568B RJ45 Wiring Standards

To answer your question..If you want a straight through connection you would use T-568B (or T-568A) at both ends of the cable.

Remove protective film wrap from under water dispenser faceplate


I have this same model and was facing the same issue. I even emailed Whirlpool but that didn't help.

You can remove the faceplate by removing the spill tray and unscrewing the two small screws in the bottom. Be careful not to scratch the finish while removing the screws.

The faceplate is held on by several plastic hooks around all edges. Carefully grip the bottom of the faceplate (I put my thumbs on the inside where the spill tray was and my index finger below the bottom front of the faceplate). Get a good grip by pinching the faceplate and pull down and out to remove the bottom. Then push the faceplate up to unhinge the top.

You can let the faceplate hang by the wires while you remove the plastic. I'd also use a stainless steel cleaner while the faceplate is off to get rid of any fingerprints you may have left behind.

To reinstall, hang the faceplate on the top 3 hooks making sure there is a snug fit. Then pull down on the bottom and push it in. It took me two tries to get it back on.

The plastic is stronger than it looks but you'll still have to go slow and be careful with it. Good luck!

Cat5e jack by leviton has eight slots, but my cat5 cable only has 4 wires in it. I punched the wires down on the back four connectors. As long as I do the same on my ends, this should work right? Please...


Cat5 has eight wires, anything less is for telephone. Your cabe is for telephone if it has 4 wires. Either return the cable and get 8-wire cat5 or go to another store for your cat5 wire.
