Hard Drive Crash - how do I disassemble my PCMP-30 to replace it?

Unfortunately Sharp seems to have locked up the internal hard drive on my ACTIUS PCMP-30 like a vault.  I want to replace it myself.  Any clue on the steps I need to take to get at the hard drive, replace it, and reassemble my PC?

Do you know how to flash the BIOS? This could trigger it. Are you sure that it can accept the hard drive. Does the hard drive have jumpers on it? This should be on master if it does have one. Although not common on laptop hard drives it could have one.

Sharp actius mp30 hard drive replacement?


It is a standard 2.5" IDE laptop drive. You have to dis-assemble to mother board. Easy to do if you are comfortable with internals. You have to remove a million screws to get case apart. All visible on bottom, also internal pc card next to memory card has 2 screws. Don't forget back side hinge screws and edge screws on upper part of lower shell visible in back and when dvd/cd is pulled (2 bottom screws hold player in. The shell come apart easily little force no tricky pressure or lock taps. Where it hinges on back top side next to LCD screen lift gently straight up this is where it is most resistant. A few ribbon cables and 2 wire cables to disconnect. After lower case top is off a few screws holding mother board (arrows) needs to be removed to lift motherboard. Drive is connected to mother board by ribbon cable lift pry gently up to release it. Drive is held in by 4 screws. Good luck. If you do not want to do this just get a 2.5" usb drive. You can buy the drives and external case or by already made ones e.g. WD passport.

BTW I am looking for an actius mp-30 casing, mine has damage.

If you have any questions post to contact me

From what you described, it seems as though your LCD panel is going bad or the inverter board is bad. Does it change colors if you were to reposition (tilt) the LCD back and forth in either direction?
