Question about Samsung V20 XVC 2400 Notebook
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
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.
