Question about Breville BTA840XL 4-Slice Toaster

Open Question

Have to replace power cord. Took out screws on the bottom but cannot slide the case off because the toast color switch on the side won't let the housing slide off. Tried pulling the switch off but it feels like it will break. How do I get it off?

SOURCE: Left-hand section only toasts on one side

The heating resistor on the left side has shorted with the case. Since you don't know very much on electrical equipment (to fix it you would have to open it, remove the shorted piece of wire, reattach all and insulate them properly) and the price of a new item is low, just buy a new one and discard this one. You shouldn't use it again, under no circumstances - if you're unlucky it can kill you.

How do I remove the switch on the Bosch model 11316 to replace the cord?


The switch slide snaps in - use a screwdriver and gently pry up on the bottom of the switch slide, there is a tab on either side that will release and it will come out - you will find 2 more housing screws behind it to remove the handle and replace the cord.
The switch will go back in top first and give the bottom a tap to snap it back in place.

Purchase a Color Wheel & The Repair Job


My television is model Samsung HLM4365WX and the color wheel part number for that is BP96-00250A. This color wheel is used in many, many Samsung televisions, but you should confirm that your model is on the [affmask=http://www.tkqlhce.com/click-2057689-10391521?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.partstore.com%2FCompatibleModels%2FSamsung%2FSamsung%2F BP9600250A%2FNew.aspx]compatability list[/affmask]

The Repair Job
Requirements:
  • Philips screwdriver, not too small and at least 5 inches long. There’s one screw that’s a reach.
  • Tiny (jewler’s) screwdriver. You may not need this. I needed it to get a connector off.
  • Tweezers. I needed them to get to a few screws in tight places.
  • Compressed air. I didn’t have this, but I wish I did. It’s dusty in there.
  • Pen and paper. I took copious notes. If you do anything that I don’t talk about here, you should write it down. I carefully documented every cable that I unplugged and every part I removed. Thank God I did that.
  • 1-2 hours (first time I did this, it took 90 minutes. Second time 60 minutes, with photography)
  • Nerves of steel and air conditioning. Don’t drip sweat into your television.
Notes:
  • In this document, left and right are “stage-left” and “stage-right”, or the left and right sides of the set as you look at the back, facing your sofa.
  • Almost all of the screws are identical. You can safely keep them all in the same cup, or pile on the table, or carpet, or wherever you store the screws.
  • Don’t touch anything that looks like light will shine through it, like the projector lens or the colorwheel itself.
  • DON’T rely on this document entirely. Pay close attention and take notes or digital pictures.
  • If you were just watching your TV, your projector lamp will be HOT. Let it cool down.
1. Remove the back panel from the television set. The panel runs the entire width of the bottom rear of the set. There’s no need to remove the access panel for the lamp. That’ll come off with the panel. There are 14 screws.
samsung-2.jpg 2. Remove the projector lamp. This may be unnecessary, but (a) it let’s you see your target (the color wheel) and (b) it just seems like the safe thing to do. It’s easy. Just unscrew the two brass screws holding it in. It’s on the right side of the TV. The screws won’t come out, just pull them out with the whole unit by pulling on the handle and sliding it straight out. Carefully store it somewhere safe.
lamp.jpg lamp-removed.jpg 3. Remove the panel on the left side by removing two screws holding it in place. Carefully slide it and the attached PC board out a few inches until cables stop you. You won’t actually need to remove any cables from this board to get at the color wheel. (Of course I removed most of them the first time.)
left-panel.jpg left-panel-out.jpg 4. Carefully note how the power cable is positioned in the set, and the route it takes out the back. Once you have done that, pull the power cord out of it’s notch in the bottom of the case. It’s blocking the next part that has to slide out.
power-cable.jpg 5. Remove the center panel. Remove the two screws in the bottom that have larger heads than the rest. You don’t need to take off the regular sized screws that fasten the back panel to the base. They’ll all slide out together. Remove the top two screws that hold the panel to the plastic case.
center-panel.jpg
Center panel. The two screws on the bottom have larger heads than the rest. Remember that these go here. There are two more screws on the bottom that hold the vertical panel to the base. No need to remove them. If you do, things get a bit floppy.
6. Slide out the center unit slowly, just a few inches and take a peek inside as you do. It’s a snug fit, so you’ll need to ease out both the top and bottom at the same time. Some things to notice as you do this. Look at how the projector lens is fitted inside a foam sheath. You’ll need to put that back later, so take a good look.
projector-lens.jpg There are a few cables on the left side restricting it. You’ll need to unplug these:
  • blue/brown two-wire power cable. You’ll need to unplug this from the main set.
  • blue/white cable connecting to the left side. Squeeze the plug to unlatch it and remove it from the center unit that you’re removing.
  • Sensor switch on the right side. Unscrew this from the tv case bracket.
center-cables.jpg
This arrow is pointing to two of the cables. Follow the brown/blue one to the other end to unplug it. Right behind this arrow is the white connector for the white/blue cable.
sensor-switch.jpg
Here’s one of the screws that are different. Remember to use the smaller brass screw here later.
Now you can slide the center panel and all the parts behind it out of the television. If you didn’t remove any cables on the left panel, you’ll have to swing everything over to the left to clear the television.
open-tv.jpg Note: Steps 7-9 are removing the bad color wheel. I suggest doing these steps carefully, as if you were going to need to use this color wheel again. You never know if you may need to reverse what you’ve done.


further steps will be continued

Removing cd rom


The optical (CD) drive on your Acer laptop connects to the side of the device and is accessed via the underside of the computer.
If you are having problems with the optical drive on your laptop you should address it as soon as possible, and one thing you may need to do is remove it.
The good news is that even if you aren't particularly tech savvy, you'll find that the process of removing and replacing your optical drive is relatively easy.
Turn your Acer off and remove any power cables that may be attached to the side of the unit. Turn your Acer upside down.
Slide the battery out of its compartment on the underside of the computer.

Locate the circular optical drive retaining screw on the underside of your laptop.
It is located just above the square WiFi compartment in the middle of the computer.

Use your Phillips screwdriver to remove the screw and set it aside.
Grip the optical drive by its edge on the side of the computer and gently pull to remove it from the computer.
Slide a new optical drive into the computer, making sure the disk opening is facing out of the laptop.
Replace the optical drive screw.

Replace the CD Drive on an Acer Aspire 5000
The CD drive of the Acer Aspire 5000 is designed like most other laptop optical drives.
The CD drive is on the right-hand side of the computer and is attached with screws from the back of the case.
All you need to complete the task is a screwdriver.
To avoid electric shock or damage to the laptop, always ground your tools by touching them against a metal object like a table leg before using them on the computer.

Turn the Acer Aspire 5000 laptop off.
Unplug the power cord from the electrical outlet. Remove the power cord from the power supply in the side of the laptop.
Flip the laptop over so you are looking at the bottom of the case.
Slide the battery pack off the top of the case.
You'll see the CD drive on the left-hand side of the laptop when you are looking at the bottom of the case.

Unfasten the screws that are holding the CD drive onto the laptop with a screwdriver. Slide the drive out of the case.
Slide the new CD drive into the case and secure it with the screws.
Place the battery pack in the laptop and turn the computer back over so it is sitting on its base. Plug the power cord into the power supply in the side of the laptop.
Plug the other end of the cord into the electrical outlet.

Hi.

Take out the AC power jack and then remove the laptop battery. Plug AC power back in and see if the laptop will turn on. If it turns on let it boot the operating system and then shut down as normal, remove the power cord and reinsert the battery and again see if it will switch on. If it does then there has been a glitch with the battery. If it doesn't then there is a problem with the battery.

If the laptop won't switch on either with or without the battery then there is a possibility that the motherboard has developed a problem.


Good luck.
