Samsung v20 disassembly

Hi My Samsung V20 has a problem with the power supply socket, and I want to replace the module of which the socket is part. However I am stuck trying to open the case. I have removed 12 screws (8 main screws, plus HDD, Keyboard, DVD and also a casing screw concealed by the DVD) from underneath, and have also removed the components they held. However the case appears to be held by two plastic latches on either side: between the LEDs on the right hand side, and at the corresponding point on the left. Can you tell me how I release the latches (if this is what they are) and get the casing open? Regards, PaddyB

    Hi. I have the same problem - need to replace the DC power socket. Have removed all screws and keyboard (+ extra scerws), but cannot take the cover apart. Am I missing something? And should I be attacking this from the top or the bottom?

    OK. I lifted the whole top off, but what do you do with the ribbin connectors for the keyboard and pad - do they just slide horizontally out of the holders?

After removing the screws, lift the keypad by releasing the two latches just below the ALT key and WINDOWS key. Two more screws are hidden beneath the keyboard. Hope this helps

Yes, they are, in effect, latches. You must determine which case half contains the "male" tab and then compress near that tab to release it from the tab's latch (female). The latch may look like an enclosed "hook" or depression or relief that the tab falls into perfectly when latched. The tab is usually ramp-shaped or wedge-shaped to allow easy alignment before the user pushes the tab in allowing the ramp to slightly bend the tab inward and then allowing the tab to snap back outward into the latch area after end of ramp. It really is a "spring" effect on a very small scale. Usually, the tabs are located on the top half of the case.

Hi, i have a samsung v20 laptop.2 questions...

I have a Samsung V20 for many years and I know it doesn't support a wireless connection built in. But if you connect a USB like myself you can have access to the internet wirelessly. The flikering on the screen are you sure you haven't got a screen saver switched on, you may have it set to a clear black screen and like you say have to tap the keyboard and it comes back to life. It may also have hibernation switched on which will automatically turn off the screen have so many minutes you can change all these setting by right clicking on the desktop and selecting properties and under the screen saver tab there will be a power btton you should see hibernation and other tabs across the top these can be altered to whatever you want.

Hope this of use.
