I have a key board to change, the new one that I bought from e-bay is a new one and looks like the exact one I need. My problem is on the new key board where the conection is there is no type of connector of any to speak of and I am confuesed on how this key board does connect up ....on the end of the copper strip where there should be a connector theres a clear plastic tab. but it doesn't seem tobe a pull off protector ..I did try to put a lil forse on it to see If it has a type of tape on it to just stick it to the other for a connectionbut that makes n o sence at all to whats the deal here with this key board and how the new one is hooked back up. I dont want to take it apart without knowing what I need to connect it up. I do have a good sodering gun If needed. But that plastic clear tape has me concerned for sure it's not like tape a lot stiffer and doesn't want to pull off at all like it is used for a protection purpose in shipping or for the fact that the copper strip is so thin and fragile.... so any help with this I could use as you can see. Thanks robert

When I took mine apart, I had to unscrew all the screws on the pegboard, then there are some screws along the midsection on both sides. Other than that, there weren't any cables or anything to be leary of. It was really pretty easy. Hope that helps.

SOURCE: No vedeo on T30 LCD

That has happened to each of my T30s, 3 times altogether. Drop or jolt damages the mobo. I've tried swapping parts (incl. LCD) between machines to no avail. The only fix was to replace the mobo, and that worked every time. BTW, shining a flashlight at the LCD, you can barely see an image, but it's there. But the problem is the mobo, not LCD, not inverter card, not LCD ribbon cable.

Yes, there is a trick. This is a ZIF or zero insertion force connector. When you removed it you probably just pulled hard enough that it let the connector slide out [ :( don't do that next time though ]

There is an excellent "video" of a ZIF connector here at the bottom of the page.

Otherwise look carefully at the connector and see how the connector is divided. It should be two pieces that either slide together/apart or one part flips up and snaps back down.

BE CAREFUL THOUGH! These connectors are very easy to damage/destroy. If you are doing the correct thing to open the connector is should take very little force.

Once you've got the connector open - stick the cable end back in it and close the connector and your keyboard should be working again.

This is the stirrer cover. It is important. It is to keep food particles and grease out of the stirrer and waveguide area.

If grease or food particles build up, they can arc, which will cause burn damage to the cover, stirrer, chassis, and/or magnetron.

If you have any arcing, you should remove it for cleaning. Be careful of sharp edges.

The stirrer's job is to stir the microwaves to ensure even heating, even when a turntable is not present or not used.

look at the ribbon/connector again, make sure it's not broken.
Sounds like a broken ribbon or bad connector.

My powersupply board is dead so tv dnt wanna go on where can I get a other board

you did not search very hard... but, you did not supply the country, therefore i do not know exact location of the site which can help you.

if you have board in your hand, check exact wording on the board and then try to search for it via google or any other search engine, try that one, one of my favourites:

try this guy, i bought from him before and he supplied toshiba power board exact model as i want, put in search box hisense and you will have several models, check for yours:

this guys as well supply the parts, but i do not know how much they would charge for postage to your location:

by the way, this particular model was rather shiitty from the beginning, if you can change it for something else - do so... monitor/tv 32" new start from about $220.00, not long ago i did see in technip one on display (ex display with full w-ty) for $150.00... have look how much new ones look in your locality and then decide, maybe second hand online? try gumtree, craigslist or whatever you get in your locality, people move houses, interstate, they need to get rid of they stuff quickly...

hope this little advise will help you - do not forget to vote...

I have a 2006 Silverado ext cab. The passenger side door was missing the lock cylinder when I bought it (used of course) The passenger side door also doesn't open from the outside but the inside latch...

I just looked on e-bay and discovered you will be needing to buy the outside door handle which comes with the lock cylinder.
You can probably buy one of these from a Chevy or GMC truck dealer, or go on-line and check with e-bay or others to get one.
You can also find one at a salvage yard, but there you may not get a key with it.
A locksmith can cut you a key, but a used handle and a "locksmith-key" may cost you more that a new one!
The handle and lock are held on with a couple of screws inside the door shell.
Be blessed.

Disc wont play. screen says open tray then close tray over and over

this is most likely caused by a faulty dvd drive. I just recently replaced one in one of my 360's. Keep in mind if you open the xbox you will not only void the warrenty but microsoft will never repair it and then your on your own.there are two possible solutions to the problem.
1) open the console and remove the dvd drive and replace it with a new one. If you coose to do this you will have to make sure you get the exact same dvd drive or you will run into problems. I had a samsung ts-h943 and bought a new one for $32 at PC Direct. You can also find these on ebay. There are also philips or benQ drives. Which ever it may be buy the exact same one. You will need to flash the new drive with the key from the old drive. Each drive has a "key'' or serial number that the mother board match up with. If you don't want to or don't know how to retrieve the key and flash the drive you can do what I did and open both the new drive and the old drive and swap out the com board. This looks like a mini mother board and makes the drive and the mother board communiciate to each other and be able to play games. If the drive isn't either flashed or com board swapped out the drive will not play games only dvd's
2) If you want to leave your console closed to avoid the warrenty being voided you can turn it into xbox has a RROD and they will issue you a referbished console.
If you found this helpful and need further instructions on how to swap the drive your self let me know.

I bought a hampton bay ceiling fan model uc7083t but i didn't

hi there i can help. There is a "dip switch" on nearly all fan remote units, much like a garage door opener has. To keep all the fans in your home from operating at one time, each fan needs a seperate "code". To use your other remote, you need to locate the receiver unit in the fan, usually in the "canopy". This is the bowl looking piece against the ceiling. then note the "code" which is the position of the switches. For instance, most have a block with 4 switches, and if the first is "on", and the remaining are "off", that is it's set code. This "code" can be changed to any combination of "on , off" that you like. BUT, you must also open the remote control and set it's switch to the exact same "Code", or order of "on off" as your Fan receiver. (Usually the control "Dip switch" is in the battery compartment.

Key on 2005 hemi

I have the same problem. I took the printed circuit board out of my key and tried it. It worked great, so I bought a new key case and put the circuit board in it.

No, I don't think that there is any way to turn off the alarm if you open the door manually with the key.

There are any number of Toshibe motherboard sources on the Internet and if you are comfortable with E-Bay they had a number of M45 boards listed, looks like from about $190 and up. Did you post here in anticipation of someone having a board to sell you? If so E-Bay can handle that much better I would think since I'd have to be a seller with exactly what you want, happen upon your question and we make a deal. Could happen but not likely on a trouble shooting sight. Sorry wish I could help.
