Question about Polaroid PDV-0823A Portable DVD Player

Polaroid DVD player PDV0821T

Does anyone know exactly how to take this thing apart and put it back together ? I need to replace the outer shell on the bottom unit (not the screen) because a small plastic piece broke off and now the top disk cover won't close. Where can I get information about this model ?

    My post clearly states the reason. Again, it is to replace the shell/case on the bottom part so that the top cover will be able to close again. A small plastic piece broke off and the whole case must be replaced.

Taking it apart to do what exactly?

    The reason you gave I under stand perfectly.
    The problem is replacing with new components.
    Are you sure they/it is obtainable?
    Best to be sure before you delve further.
    However to respond to your quest - does the device have round rubber 'feet' at each Corner?
    If affermative then prizing these off may reveal a screw. If it does not then the answer is it is a snap together clam shell type, with risk of further damage.
    Best way to overcome this problem perhaps tis to fabricate a some thing with glue on Velcrow
    [hook and hair type fastener]

    Obtaining replacement parts is your main problem I would say.

Instructions on how to install replacement screen on ddx616, brother broke screen then took it apart, lost screws, received replacement prts, just need to know exactly how to put it back togethe

I'm sure not many have attempted this repair but it's not going to be unlike most other repairs to this type of device. There will be blank sockets on the new screen with male pins that correspond to cable connectors on the head unit. You'll have to ensure that all open sockets are plugged into the cable from the unit on the new screen assembly. Electronic screws are fairly standard but if you're not sure take one out of the unit and take it to a hardware store to match it. ( I recommend ACE hardware). From there you just align holes and slots and start screwing it back together. good luck!

I need to put a new door handle on a kitchen aid microwave. It is above the stove, the model number is khms155lss-4

The diagram can be found at

Open the door all the way and lift it up (press on bottom of door) to lift the hinge pins out, then pull away from the unit (walk backward) to remove it.

Then, the remove the inner plastic shell from the outer plastic shell by prying gently around the outer shell. There are no screws holding it together.

Once apart, you can see the screw (item 8 in the drawing). You can remove the screw and replace the handle. reverse the process to get it together.

Make sure the door is all the way back in tightly and firmly just as it is now or you can have a microwave leak. Work carefull and, if you have a digital camera or a camera phone, take pictures of each step to make sure you know how it goes back together.

My shaving head came apart and I can not re assemble it, kindly give me instructions

Wife cleaned bathroom shelf dropping the Arcitec. One of 3 heads was not aligned properly, when I tried to re-seat it, this head came apart. To put it back together takes some finesse and patience. Take a coil of stamps, or some other small opening to rest the outer plastic shell head, then insert the metal screen which has notches (2 small, 1 large) and fit it in the plastic shell head. Next put the metal blade assembly on the screen. Next align this on the metal (thin) pivot. When the outer plastic head, and the metal pivot are aligned (small peg holes), you can place the thin inner plastic piece on and gently press your sub assembly and the backing plastic together, It will snap together and hold. Don't FORCE it, the holes must be aligned on the outer plastic, the metal pivot frame, with blades resting on the screen. It does snap together. Work with fairly bright light to see what you are doing. If this fails, invest in a new head assembly for about 15% of the cost of the whole razor.

How to clean turbo brush of harmony electrolux and put it back together properly

Wait, there are two more screws that must be removed before the top shell will come off. They are located under the wheels. Pop the wheels out by simply inserting yoru finger or a small tool into the wheel and pulling straight up. Remove those two screws and then you can proceed as mentioned above.
When reassembling the head, if the shell does not snap back onto the base, check for plastic chips or other debris in the narrow slots on the underside of the shell. Clear these slots out and the head should easily snap back together.

Changed bottom screen tested before putting back


Happens sometimes it is one of two things:
1) When you put the DS back together is the ribbon from the top screen wound to tightly as this can cause the ribbon to pull out slightly from the socket on the motherbaord causing the blackout.
2) I have seen this happen only once before! The plsatic of the shell had a small chip where the battery connectors from the motherboard stick through into the battery compartment. THis tiny piece of plastic was stopping the final connection between battery and DS. Drove me mad, did all the usuals checked battery connections etc. Worht a look.

Whenever I turn it on theres just a blue screen and I can't get it to record

It took me a while to figure this one out but I finally did and mine is back to working perfectly. The problem: The Play option worked fine but the camera did not. When turned to camera mode the blue canon screen would come up and then freeze. The only way to turn it off was to remove the battery.

The fix: I was brave enough to take the entire outer shell off the camera. On the main board, underneath the screen/battery side, all the different parts are connected together. There is a single connector from the lens that had come out of its port. The ribbon connector must have somehow been shaken out of the port at some point. With needle nose pliers I carefully fit the ribbon connector back into the port. I carefully reattached the outer shell and everything was back working!

I will warn you that this task takes some time due to many many screws. It's a lot better than sending it off for hundreds of dollars though.

The handle can only be changed by separating the outer and inner shells of the door. You can pull the outer shell off the inner shell by removing the three screws at the end of the door and then using firm force to pull the shells apart. It helps to gently pry along the bottom, top and inside (nearest the hinges) with a thin flathead screwdriver or other very thin metal object. You don't have to get it all the way loose; just a little is fine. You can then use the two clasps on the back of the door (that hold it shut when it's closed) to pull with. I found that inserting a slim screwdriver into the lower clasp and using that as a handle (not a lever!) gives you a better grip. Hold the outer shell of the door with your left hand while pulling the inner shell in the opposite direction. Be carefull not to twist or bend the clasps; they are plastic and will break. The shells will pull apart and then you can access the screws that hold the handle. Change the handle then press the door shells back together. Make sure they are snug all around. Replace the three end screws and you're done.

Cracked screen

these units are so fragile that you are undertaking very skilled surgery. it maybe that somehting became unplugged or pressured on the putting back together. Now that you have done it once, I would suggest taking it apart again and just putting it back together, it maybe that it will work the second time! there is no reset button that I know of. let me know if this helps.
