How do i fit the door on the other side


If you look at the opposite side of your refrigerator, you'll find one or more plastic covers which can be removed to expose mounting holes. You have to remove the doors from the current mounting position, remove the hinges and transfer them to the other side, install the doors and you're done

Need pinout for A8N-LA front panel to mobo


Mike,

Going to detail it out, so those needing this info in the future also, can use it.

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&cc=us&docname=c00647121&dlc=en

Scroll towards the bottom of the page for the motherboard illustration, and photo.

The front of a desktop computer is the Front Panel.
The area of contact pins on the motherboard, that the main wires go to from the Front panel, is the Front panel header.

In the illustration, and as the motherboard sits in your computer case, the Front Panel is at the Bottom/Right corner.
In the Illustration it is F_PANEL1.

In the photo it is the black rectangular block, with 9 contact pins.
Two rows of pins.
4 on the Top row, 5 on the Bottom row.

The pins on the Top row are numbered EVEN.
The pins on the Bottom row are numbered ODD.

Starting on the LEFT side on the Top row, going across to the Right;
Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8.

Starting on the LEFT side on the Bottom row, going across to the Right:
Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9.

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive activity LED.
Pin 1 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
If the HDD LED is dim when the harddrive is active, switch the wires around.

B) Pins 5 and 7 are for a Reset switch, IF a RST SW is used.

C) Pin 9 is N/C.
Not Connected. Pin is reserved for factory use.

D) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED.
Pin 2 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
If the PWR LED is dim when the computer is on, switch the wires around.

E) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch.

F) There is NO Pin 10. Just a blank spot.

Power switch


When looking at the motherboard, position yourself so that the RAM slots are running vertically on the right side of the board. The PCI and AGP slots should be running horizontally on the lower left side of the board.

In the bottom right of the board, you will see a block that has 9 pins, a row of 4 on the top and a row of 5 on the bottom.

The middle pins, one above the other, are the power button connectors. Insert your PWRBTN# on the top and the GND wire onto the botton pin.

Power jack unattached and fell into case so can't plug in,. How do I open the case to reattach? Took out screws I could see but couldn't open case. If I can't recharge it I can't use it. Help.


Normal 0
this should help you....let me know if you need more help or info


Ill assume you have either a 31XX, 4XXX model since those are the ones that are alittle harder to get apart then any other Magellan. Read below what I have replied to others with this question.


You have to be careful taking them apart or youll Break the power port and the head phone port right of the board And it will probably screw the board up. had a few were ppl tried to Take them apart the wrong way and broke the tracers right off the board (now there junk)

Note: always start on the side opposite the power port

Anyway, after the screws are out, use your finger nail if you can,(that's what I use) if not get yourself a very small flat screw Driver (jeweler type) and starting from the side opposite the power port (pictures below) and Head phone port (start on the side the power BUTTON is on, starting at the bottom, Slip it along the seam where the front and back of the case Meet, but don't force it down inside the 2 halfs, you want to just put the blade In far enough so it slides along the seem and that its is separating the 2 just enough to unlock the tabs from Each other see the pics There are 6 taps to break free..2 on the top, 2 on the bottom and 1 on each side....don't worry about the on on the port side. Just tip the back of the case upward and that side will come free on its own. When you put it back together, the port side goes in 1st. Tip the rear of the case up and slide it in under the ports and then lay the back down on to the front half and it will snap together.

Tips to remove and replace the port

Magellan power port replacement for the following models
Magellan 800, 860, 2000, 2200t, 3000, 3050, 3100, 3140, 4000, 4010, 4040,
4050, 6000t and the 5310

On some models, you may find it easier to replace the port by totally removing the
Board and always disconnect the battery

Assuming that the power port is still intact and the tracers on the board are Good.

If you don’t have a rework station at your convenience, you can use a good Solder iron with a small tip.


DISCONNECT THE BATTERY AS SOON AS THE REAR
COVER IS OFF!


1st carefully break the strap in half that goes over the front of the port, so you
Can remove one side at a time. Break it at the top at the little tab!
Apply a small amount of solder to the tip of the iron (this is to tranfer the heat
Quicker to melt the old solder, because you don’t wont to apply more heat then
Is needed)
Remove one side of the front strap by applying a small amount of solder
Then do the same to the other side.
Apply another small amount of solder to the iron and apply to one of the rear
Terminals/contacts and once solder is molten, tip the power port toward the tab that’s connected yet then do the other side and remove the old port.

The trick is to remove the old port without damaging the tracers on the board,

To install, make sure the centering pin is not broke off and still in the centering hole..if it is, use a paper clip or something to push it thru

Put a small amount of solder on each contact on the board then place
The new port on the board and apply heat it the tabs on the battery side while applying pressure so its flat against the board, then do the same with the other Contacts. If its not flush with the board apply pressure and reheat solder if your sure its in the centering hole

  1. 1st carefully break the strap in half that goes over the front of the port, so you
    can remove one side at a time.
  2. apply a small amount of solder to the tip of the iron (this is to transfer the heat
    quicker to melt the old solder, because you don’t wont to apply more heat then
    is needed)
  3. remove one side of the front strap by applying a small amount of solder
    then do the same to the other side.
  4. apply another small amount of solder to the iron and apply to one of the rear
    terminals/contacts and once solder is molten, tip the power port toward the tab that’s connected yet then do the other side and remove the old port.



    the trick is to remove the old port without damaging the tracers on the board,
    because once they’re damaged its junk. (especially the rear contacts,) one is + the
    other is - the front contacts are also grounds.

I put a motherboard in my pc and i dont know where 2 put POWER SW,RESET SW,HDD LED,POWER LED....please help


http://eu.shuttle.com/archive/en/prod/mb/big/av49vn.jpg

ok man on this picture in the bottom of the pic there will be a sort of black rectangle with nine pins, 5 on bottom, four on top. This is where all your POWER SW,RESET SW,HDD LED,POWER LED will be plugged in. I could not find instructions for your board but for mine it is

Looking at the pins from the side where there are 5 pins on the bottom and 4 on top. The top two sould be the power led the two next to that should be the power switch, the bottom two to the left should be the hard drive led and the two next to that should be reset.

This is not the guaranteed position seeing as we have two completely different models.

Hope this helps.

Screen black & with no power


hi there,

you can follow this instruction and try to your laptop to resolved the problem.

A bad connection between DC-IN power jack on the system board and the system board is a very common problem with Toshiba Satellite M35X and Toshiba Satellite A70/A75 notebooks. If your laptop is out of warranty, then you can fix the problem by resoldering DC-IN jack on the system board. If it’s still under warranty, it would be fixed at no charge to you.
Problem symptoms:
  1. Laptop randomly shuts down without any warning.
  2. Power LED and battery charge LED start flickering when you wiggle the power cord or the AC adapter tip on the back or your laptop.
  3. The battery will not get charged.
  4. When you plug AC adapter, the laptop appears to be dead and there is no LED activity at all (DC-IN jack on the system board is broken).
To fix the problem, you have to take your laptop apart, remove the system board to resoleder or replace the DC-IN jack. Toshiba Satellite M35X and Toshiba Satellite A70/A75 disassembly guides will help you to remove the system board. Take a closer look at the power jack on the system board with a magnifying glass. In most cases you get the power problem because of a bad connection between the DC jack and the system board, you’ll see a crack between the DC jack connector and the system board.
Here is an example of Toshiba Satellite M35X power jack. The crack occurs between the DC jack pin and the system board.
satellite-m35x-crack.jpg satellite-m35x-contact.jpg In some cases the connection is good, but the DC jack is bad itself. You can find a new DC jack for Toshiba Satellite M35X and Toshiba Satellite A70/A75 laptops here. Search for DC jack M35X or DC jack A75.
How to resolder laptop power jack yourself.
UPDATE:
Sometimes, after you replace the jack, you can see that the system board doesn’t get power at all. The battery will not charge and the power LED will not light when you plug in the AC adapter. So, here’s a possible explanation.
When a connection between the positive pin and the motherboard breaks (cracks), the power jack gets loose. You can feel it when you plug in the adapter plug. A loose power jack can damage the trace inside the hole in the system board. Take a look at the picture.
power-jack.gif As you see, the positive pin goes through the hole in the system board and you solder it on the top side. Right? What if the trace between the top side and the bottom side is broken somewhere inside the hole? I’ve seen it before a few times. In this case everything looks nice and clean on the top side. When you plug in the AC adapter, you get normal voltage readings between “+” and “-“ pins on the top side, but the power DOESN’T go to the motherboard at all, because there is no connection between the top and bottom sides. Test with a multimeter if there is a connection between the top and the bottom.
If the trace inside the hole is broken you still can fix it. You can run a wire to connect the top and the bottom sides. Be careful not to short something on the board.
Update:
Here’s another solution to fix the power jack problem, it shows how to relocate the power jack outside the laptop base. Check it out here: Toshiba Satellite A75 failed power jack workaround.
When you repair a loose power jack, it’s a good idea to check the jack on both sides of the motherboard. When you remove the top cover from a Toshiba Satellite A70/A75 laptop you can see only points where the jack is soldered to the motherboard as it shown on the second picture in this post, but you cannot see the jack itself as it shown on the first picture.
Removing the motherboard from Satellite A70/A75 laptop is a good idea because the jack itself might has a broken “+” pin, as it shown on the picture below. If the “+” broke off the base, you’ll have to replace the jack.

Warreny over , fix it myself ?


I don't think you'll be completely happy with this, but I'm pretty sure the DC Jack (the power plug you broke) is soldered onto the power control board. This doesn't mean it's not repairable. I've done this with some good success in the past, but you might just want to replace this entire "daughter" board. HERE'S ONE on eBay for about $75, a lot less than the $200 for the mainboard or more for a complete replacement or repair. You could try to repair the DC jack and if that $12 fix fails, replace the entire Power Control Board (PCB). I think you should take it apart and check at least. It isn't that difficult if you have patience and the right tools. You'll need a "computer" or "electronics" screw driver kit and something like a credit card to help pry apart plastic pieces without scratching them. I also found this thread on NotebookReview that talks about doing what you want to. To see what the board looks like check out these pictures: eBay: 3680 mobo1 http://i17.ebayimg.com/04/i/001/0d/e1/7ce9_1.JPG To pick up the DC Jack you'll need, check out eBay, they are around $12 shipped. HERE'S ONE EXAMPLE GOOD LUCK!

Opening the case to repair broken power connector


FIRST FAIR WARNING: This take apart is best left to the repair tech's at an authorized repair facility. There are 6 snaps, two on the top, two on the bottom and one on eash side. I used a thin blunt tip letter opener and started at the top. This didn't leave any marks on the case that would tip off the repair tech's that you goobered it up inside which you will do if you proceed! Release the two at the top first, then the two on the bottom. Now release the one on the side where the power button is located. Open the case on the power button side only about 1/4 inch and slide the bottom off the top being careful not to separate the power cord and headphone connector plugs from the board that they a fastened to inside the case. SECOND FAIR WARNING: It is very easy to pull the connector plugs from the board and this will really convince the repair tech's that you ruined your $350 GPS. Good luck and don't say I didn't warn you!!!!!!
