How can I get the case open?

I have removed 5 screws inside the battery compartment (B6) plus one B6 under the laptop. 2 at the rear of the screen and 5 screws labelled B16 underneath. Something is still holding it all together. Do you know of a manual?

How do i disassemble hp 635?

Don't know what manual you're referring to, but it isn't the HP 630, HP 631, HP 635, and HP 636 Service Manual; from HP Support,

Upper part of the laptop is the Top Cover.
Most of the time referred to as the Palm Rest Cover.

1) Remove the Keyboard
2) Remove the Optical Drive (DVD drive) (IF an option on your laptop)

3) Remove the Power Button Board and cable.
4) Remove the TouchPad Button Board and cable.

5) Remove the Top Cover

A) Close the computer
B) Turn the computer upside down, FRONT towards you.

Now pull this example of the Base Enclosure up in another window,

Put your mouse cursor in the middle of the photo, and use the Zoom In feature. (Put mouse cursor in middle, slowly move mouse around)

1) Looking at the FRONT edge, see the SIX screws that need to be removed?

2) See the ONE screw on the Left side, and Right side; that needs to be removed?

3) ONE screw to remove from EACH corner on the REAR side.

4) Battery Compartment / Rear side;
There are FOUR screws to remove that are along the Rear side of the Battery Compartment, and DOWN in the Battery Compartment.

4) Battery Compartment / Front side;
There are THREE screws to remove that are along the Front side of the Battery Compartment, and DOWN in the Battery Compartment.

5) DOWN in the Harddrive Bay Compartment there are FOUR screws to remove.
TWO on the Right side, TWO on the Left side.

IF I count correctly there are 21 screws to remove from the Bottom.
(I ran out of toes and fingers)

6) Turn the computer back over to it's normal position.
Open the laptop.

Grab the Jaws of Life and....................

Just wanted to see if you were following along.............

The rectangular area under where the Keyboard was, and has multi ventilation holes in it, is the Static Shield.

To the Upper Left corner is the Power Button Board cable, that needs to be disconnected.

To the Middle/Front is the TouchPad Button Board cable that needs to be disconnected.

Looking to the upper right there is a hole, and a screw that needs to be removed.

More detail;

Looking at the ventilation holes going across as rows.
Come down to the 3rd and 4th row of ventilation holes.
Come OVER from the Right side SIX ventilation holes.

That hole, that screw; needs to be removed.

IF it still uses this style of fastening;

The Top Cover has TABS going around the exterior perimeter, of the inside edges.

These Tabs snap into matching LATCHES in the Base Enclosure.
(Bottom Cover)

I use a thick stiff guitar pick to start popping the covers loose from each other. (Top Cover from Base Enclosure)

I would ease the pick in the parting line of Top Cover, to Base Enclosure, towards the Rear/Right side.

You just want to ease the pick in, so you can start to get your fingertips in.
Can't get the pick in? Move over. You are at a Tab/Latch.

Once you get the Top Cover to start to separate, use your fingertips, and move along towards the Front.
Go around the Front popping the Tabs/Latches loose.

By the time you get halfway around the Left side, the Top Cover may pop off.
I state MAY, because I have had some I had to fight all the way.
(Pop EVERY Tab/Latch loose)

I hope you are wearing an ESD wrist strap, and have it's alligator clip attached to a good ground source.

IF not, open the backdoor, and throw your laptop out.
(Unless you just want to use it as a doorstop)

Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit), the delicate hardware components inside a computer.
An ESD wrist strap, and connected to a good ground source, will keep your laptop safe from Static. (From you)

The CPU (Processor) is the most susceptible hardware component to Static shock.

You know the above? Good. I also posted for people who read this solution in the future.

Out of curiosity what CPU are you going to install?

[Plus; DO NOT post your email address on FixYa!]

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

[Memory Module/Wireless Module Compartment Panel is removed, then there is a screw to remove down in the compartment, that is for the DVD drive.
Remove screw to slide DVD drive out of laptop.

Can't get a hold of DVD drive? Tap the tray release button, ease the tray all the way out. Gently pull on tray until DVD drive comes out enough, that you can grab it ]

How do i open dv7-1451nr?



Shut the Pavilion dv7 down and close the screen. After unplugging all cables from the computer, turn it over and remove the battery.

Unscrew the six Phillips-head screws holding the large T-shaped panel to the bottom of the Pavilion dv7. Remove the panel and set it aside.

Remove the keyboard locking screw--marked by a keyboard-shaped icon--from the top part of the compartment exposed when you removed the T-shaped panel. Reserve the screw.

Remove the black Phillips-head screw from next to the wireless adapter inside the T-shaped compartment. This screw holds the Pavilion dv7 optical drive in place.

Pull the Pavilion dv7 optical drive gently out of its bay, and then remove the two Phillips-head screws from inside the empty drive bay. Reserve the screws.

Remove the Phillips-head screw next to the circular intake fan vent in the corner of the Pavilion dv7.

Remove the five Phillips-head screws from inside the empty battery compartment. You should now have removed 16 screws in all. Turn the Pavilion dv7 over and open the screen.

Insert a spudger or other flat plastic tool into the seam between the speaker grille and computer casing on the right side of the Pavilion dv7. Gently pry up to begin removing the speaker grille from the computer. As you do this, move the spudger to a new location to pry different areas until the grille is completely disconnected. Mind the ribbon cable connecting the center of the speaker grille to the logic board, and do not lift the grille any higher from the computer than the cable allows.

Push both sides of the speaker grille cable lock forward until the cable slides easily out of the logic board connector. Set the speaker grille aside.

Remove the four Phillips-head retaining screws above the top row of the Pavilion dv7 keyboard. Lift the keyboard up and forward, and place it face-down on the palm rest.

Unlock the Pavilion dv7 keyboard cable connector using the same method as for the speaker grille connector. Slide the cable out of the connector, remove the keyboard and set it aside.

Place the new Pavilion dv7 keyboard upside-down on the palm rest. Slide the keyboard into the connector, close the lock and rotate the keyboard down into the computer. Replace the four Phillips-head screws.

Slide the speaker grille cable into the connector and close the cable lock. Push the speaker grille into its original position above the Pavilion dv7 keyboard. Press gently on all parts of the speaker grille until it is flush with the computer casing.

Close the screen and turn the computer over. Replace the five screws inside the battery compartment, the screw next to the intake fan vent, the two screws inside the empty optical drive bay and the screw inside the T-shaped compartment.

Replace the t-shaped panel on the bottom of the Pavilion dv7 and its six screws.

Slide the optical drive back into its bay and replace the securing screw.

Open toshiba a215-s5818 case completely

old post, there are no fuses. fan yes, mobo yes, and more
all things lacking a HATCH.
11 years old, no spring chicken this. and may have CCFL lamps.
CCFL dead , LCD goes dead. as all did now. this old.

seem you got the wrong manual.

the Toshiba web site shows NO SERVICE manuals, free.
that is why I never own them, I buy dell or hp, as they do have manuals, for sure.
my sis has one, and i had to use youtube to find all screws and those dang silly hidden secret plastic snap locks.
yah, toshiba's SUX.
the users manual shows , hatch covers off.
show memory swaps.
then omg fails to show RTC coin cell removal, yah.

my sis, i put in a new LCD display and LED conversion kit. and new SSD drive. and loaded fresh W10 on it, so... im not helpless.
it runs fast and well but I personally hat Toshiba PCs.
I buy USA when I can, so there is that.

i can not find true and matching service manual
but see A200 series, yes. (from non OEM sources)
240+ pages there. has it.

here is how many work (Dismantlment)
all hatches off, and what is under hatch removed DDR, etc.
look for screws hidden there. remove those.
dvd drive out , and screws tricky hidden there or on upper lip there.
hdd out, see screws below>
all screws on the bottom out. ALL>
remove keyboard, if not all in one with plastic top, remove it
then find screws there, (on some LP the heatsink/fan and pipe assembly must be removed now. (my HP this is fact)
try to know that all a215 are not the same, so manuals harder to find due to that one fact alone, (not user manuals real service man's)
the if stuck still the toshiba has those dang snaps.

I use cell phone plastic pry bars, looks like tiny plastic crow bar
if you read the above it shows using guitar pick. step 14
those are a pain, for sure if you break the silly plastic locks.

23steps, there, 205.
now the video, we always look here first, it is free.
UTUBE. my guess you stuck at time stamp 3:00
guitar pick.

laptops take great skills to service, no 2 models are the same is reason 1, and then ribbon connector broken, there are 3 ribbon locks.
push pull
wedge lock
hinge lock.
each type must be addressed correctly or damage is DOA end.

Canon a1100is camera battery door replacement

Kurt- I have successfully completed a d-i-y battery door replacement on my Canon A1100IS, and I make no claims about being an "expert." My training was watching u-tube videos of guys disassembling digital cameras (other models). Here's how to open the case on the A1100is, which is not really much different than opening the case on most any compact digital camera.
Using a size #0000 phillips screwdriver (Sears sells a set of 6 minis--slotted and phillips--for $10), I removed the nine screws from the side and bottom of the case plus one inside the mini-usb cover and the one inside the battery compartment.
Then, I gently worked the front and rear of the case apart (the top of the case halves have two snap clips that hold them together. Unlike some cameras, the A1100IS does not have any flexible cable straps between its front and rear covers.
With the case halves removed, I then used a tweezers to move the straight end of the hinge spring out of its original place next to the tripod socket. That released spring pressure on the hinge and I could then easily remove the hinge pin with the tweezers.
Then, it's simply a matter of placing the replacement door's hinge/spring combo in the proper location and inserting the hinge pin to hold it there. I purchased a new door from Canon for $8.42 plus shipping). Then, I used the tweezers to position the straight hinge spring end in the slot next to the tripod socket.
The only thing left was to wipe my fingerprints off of the LCD screen and then gently replace the front and rear case halves--snapping the case's top together and then replacing the nine screws.

How do I change the battery on the motherboard of Toshiba 4600?

BSOD's (Blue Screen of Death) on the 4600 series almost exclusively come from bad memory sockets (you have two), while the RTC issue (date/time) is un-related. Only in extreme rare cases have I seen both memory sockets go bad - so you can probably get around one bad socket by using only the "other" socket. The memory compartment is at the bottom, square big door covering it held in by 2 screws.

The RTC battery (CMOS battery) requires separation of the lower case, as it's located between the main battery and the palmrest. To get to it:
1. remove all bottom screws labelled B16 and B6 (including ones within the battery compartment);
2. remove the 2 screws in the back of the laptop;
3. remove the keyboard cover strip above the keyboard;
4. remove the 2 screws holding the keyboard, disconnect and remove keyboard;
5. remove the 3 (B16) long screws on the left half, and the 2 short screws behind the CD-ROM drive.
6. disconnect video cable, floppy cable, and mouse cables, and wireless antennas.
7. now you can separate the lower case from the upper case/screen assy. You'll see the RTC (cmos) battery - it should be dressed in green with two wires (red/blk) connecting it to the motherboard.

That's should be it. I'm citing all this by heart, so forgive me if I miss a screw here or there.... :-)

What needs to be removed from my Yamaha YPG-625 to

DO NOT open the case unless you are aware of and comfortable with the fact that you could _destroy_ your piano. Easily.

Observe appropriate anti-static precautions. It should go without saying that this is an electronic repair, and dangerous voltages may exist inside the case.

1. Remove the stand if you have one
2. Lay the keyboard upside down (bottom up) on workbench
3. Remove all 90+ screws from the bottom of the chassis, including the 14 inside the speaker compartments
4. Carefully lift up on the bottom case part, taking not to damage the speaker lines
5. Unplug speaker connector and set lower case aside
6. LCD is mounted beneath main logic board
9in the center), my problem lies elsewhere, but competent and cautious service technique should lead you where you need. I would strongly recommend replacing the LCD assembly module, unless you are experienced in LCD repair.
