Replacing broken parts on my sidekick 3

I can't figure out for the life of me how to get the last screw out to replace the LCD lens. The screw is located on the left hand side and I just can't figure out how to get to it. I thought it would be simple. LOL I'm not replacing the LCD itself, just the plastic part that goes over it. Thanks for your help.

Turn the screen 90 degrees, you will see 2 screws unscrew those to give the screen a light pull and itll come right off,
then you can reach the final screw in the corner. This Requires A T6 Screw Driver

I will provide a step by step process on how to open up or disassemble the xbox 360, the steps takes You all the way to the lens. Pleas get these instruments(Bath towel, Flat-edged screwdriver, #15 Torx screwdriver, Phillips jeweler's screwdriver, Tweezers, White glove, Compressed air) then follow the steps below:
  1. Unplug the Xbox 360's power cord and remove any cables, game controllers and USB flash drives connected to it. Place a bath towel on a table. Place the console vertically on the towel with the faceplate facing up.
  2. Grip the left top side of the faceplate and the bottom right side. Pull the left side of the faceplate to the left and the bottom right side up to remove it from the console.
  3. Rotate the console so that the vent-like holes are on either side. Insert the tip of a flat-edged screwdriver into each of the holes and lift up to release the inner clips.
  4. Place the console face down on the towel. Raise the shelf on the bottom to reveal the screws beneath it. Remove these screws with the Torx screwdriver. Return the console to an upright, horizontal position on the towel. Grip the sides of the console and pull the outer case off.
  5. Remove the screws at the back panel with the Torx screwdriver. Pull the back panel off the console. Pull the plastic inserts on either side of the console off. Remove the screws from the metal shield on the top of the console with the Torx screwdriver. Pull the metal shield off.
  6. Locate the DVD drive that is on the console. The DVD drive is a rectangular metal box with a warning sticker on the top. Remove the screws from around the drive with a Phillips jeweler's screwdriver. Lift the drive up and pull the two cables out of its back.
  7. Place the DVD drive on the towel face down. Remove the screws from the sides of the drive with the Phillips jeweler's screwdriver. Slide the case off the drive.
  8. Turn the drive over. Locate the lens assembly at the center of the drive. Remove the screws from the clip placed on the drive that is next to the spindle at the center of the lens assembly with the Phillips jeweler's screwdriver.
  9. Remove the clip. Grip the lens that is under the clip with a tweezers. Remove the lens from the lens assembly and dispose of it in the trash.
  10. Put on a white glove. Pick up an edge of the replacement lens with the hand that is wearing the white glove. Place the lens in the depression that was formerly occupied by the original lens. Rotate the lens to seat it in the depression. Place the clip back on and reattach the screws. Blow off the lens and laser assembly with a burst of compressed air.
  11. Place the back panel on, reattach the screws and return the plastic inserts to their original positions on the console. Place the outer case back on. Turn the console over and reattach the screws to the bottom. Return the console to its original location, reattach the cables, game controllers and USB flash drives to their original positions. Plug the power cord back into a wall outlet.
Hope this helped. Thank You for using FixYa!!!

Display needs replacing

Take off the round rubbers that are covering the screws. There should be 4 screws on top and 4 screws on the bottom. There might be stuff covering the screws, if so take the covers off.

Once you have all 8 of the screws exposed, unscrew all the screws from the lcd bezel. After you get all the screws off then you might need a flathead screwdriver to get the lcd bezel off, put it in a area of the screen and twist the screwdriver to get the bezel to unsnap, you may have to do this in a few areas. Then you should be able to get the bezel off.

Once you do this there will be two screws on the left bottom and two screws on the right bottom. Take off those screws and it will release the lcd back cover. Now at this point you'll be able to get to the screws that are holding the lcd in place on the left hand side and the right hand side. Take off those screws and the screen will become loose, take off the lcd cable from the back of the lcd and you'll now be able to completely remove the lcd.

Once you do that put the new lcd in and put the screws back on the left and right hand side of the lcd. Then connect the lcd cable to the lcd. At this point put the lcd back cover on and put back the 4 screws that are holding it in. Now put on the front lcd bezel and put all 8 of the screws back into it.

At this point turn on the laptop and you should get video.

Cant locate the lamp in my hitachi 50v500a

your lamp is in the lower left hand corner, You must first remove the plastic front cover. You will see a door with screws on the lower left, remove the screws and the lamp will come out easily. When replacing it wear latex gloves and avoid touching the lamp as this will shorten the life of the lamp.

I need a service manual for the Dimage z2 Digital camera


Right, this is the info that you need. To remove and replace the battery door you need to follow 15 steps in the correct order, they are:

Remove the two screws (above lens) that hold on the flash cover.
Remove the flash cover
Remove the three screws on the view finder cover
Remove the view finder cover
Remove the two screws on the side of the battery compartment
Remove the two screws in the middle of the base of the camera
Remove the sliding cover on the left hand side of the lens
Remove the single screw on the left hand (curved) part of the camera case
Remove the single screw on the bottom left hand side of the casing
Remove the trim piece on the right of the camera next to the lens, the top has a sticky pad under it so will be difficult to lift up.
Remove the screw behind the trim plate
Remove the back casing

The flap should now be replaceable, if you do not feel comfortable with this then get a professional shop to do it.

I can't figure out how to replace the front turn signal

There is one screw on top of headlight assembly that holds turn signal lens in place you have to remove that screw and pull lens straight out. As far as head lamps go its just a matter of getting your hand behind headlight assembly to remove the collar that holds the bulbs in place.

Camera immediately turns off after being turned on

I have owned three Kodak cameras, the last and recent one being the M1063. They all three developed the same problem within two months of ownership....."zoom lens will move in or out depending on original position(gets stuck in out position), and camera beeps, then turns off."

It was always sand/dirt/dust in the zoom section.

Hold the camera in your right hand, as if you are going to take a picture and gently tap the left side of camera against the hard, lower part of your palm.

You might have to do it a couple of times and you might have to be a little more than gentle. Just don't bang it hard directly on the LCD screen, just the left edge.

It always works for me. Good luck.

I have an olympus digital camera fe-170. when i turn on my camera, the lense come out and the LCD screen is black, when i try to turn it off, it doesnt turn off, but after like 10 seconds it turns off by...

The lens is bad, needs to be replaced. Maybe purchase camera on ebay with broken LCD but good lens. Replacement can be time extensive. Will need #00 or #000 phillips screwdriver and solder iron. Remove 6 exterior screws+2 inside battery door. Take off front panel, remove top screw holding back panel; remove back panel. Remove 2 screws(left side top & bottom)from LCD, unplug LCD by flipping hinge up on plastic connector, pull ribbon. Remove 6 screws along outer edge of electronic board + 2 screws behind lens. Unsolder 2 battery connectors near top right side(do not melt or burn ribbon in between them). Disconnect ribbons at top right and on left edge of board. Flip board over to the left side carefully as it's still connected by 4 thin wires. Remove 3 outer screws holding lens, remove lens. Replace with good lens. Assemble camera in reverse order.
Good luck and be CAREFUL!
