You know...I'm looking for the EXACT same thing ;) I want to disassemble the screen...I've screwed out all the screwes, however it's still stuck! Any help would be of great help...and the service manual would be of even greater help!

Yes, I have the service manual. BUT, before you get too excited. Keep in mind that the laptops are designed to have minimal service. Toshiba has made it so the only servicing involves taking the covers off and replacing major components ie. motherboard, lcd, keyboard, fan, memory.

Well, that's about exactly what i need ;) I basically want to remove the lcd cover. I've unscrewed all the screws, however when I try to "lift if all off", it's just stuck. I guess there's some knob or something I need to be pushing.

I would greatly apprechiate if you could send me the service manual!

My email is:

C@SH@H_yahoo.com (replace all @ with _ and _ with @)

By the way: How did you get hold of the manual? I've tried sending e-mails to several branches within Toshiba, however they say it does not exist anymore....

Hi

You are going to laugh. To seperate the cover from the back is ... Use your finger nail. Starting at the latch run your fingernail along the seam. Your fingernail will pry open without damaging or nicking the plastic. As you seperate the two pieces work in one direction to continue the seperation. DO NOT use a screw driver or anything metalic as it will nick the plastic.

The manuals are all over ebay. I will send it to you now.

I tried, but the manual is 8 meg and your mailbox rejected it based on size. I can try it again but with compression it will not decrease that much.

Hi Steve

Unfortunately, this machine (and all laptops, though anyone is welcome to prove me wrong) do not have a reset fuse. Before you do anything. Disconnect the power and remove the battery. Check your wiring and the connectors carefully.

If it is a connector problem (hopefully, most likely) reseat them gently.

When testing keep the battery out of the machine.

Hey,

I could use the sam manual too! I need to open the case and replace the motherboard but the screen is in the way. Can you send it zipped to info@evolutiontechnologies.biz?

Thanks!

Hi!
I have bigger problem with Tecra 8000- I have to replace battery loading fuse (or something like that). There are 2 Toshiba authorized services in my country, the nearest one 200 km from the place where I live, so I decided to do it myself. Hovewer I'd like to know how to do it before I start.
Could you send service manual to me too (if there is any information that could be useful)?
Thanks in advance!

Hi

Batttery loader fuse? No such thing. Tell me what it is doing and I can suggest ways to fix it.

Cheers

After switching the power on, main battery LED flashes orange for 2 seconds and dies.
System doesn't recognize the battery and it isn't being loaded. Computer acts as there wasn't any battery at all. I've read about such problem somewhere in the web and then it was some fuse... Maybe I've called it wrong, but it was the fuse anyway.

Regards

Hi

First, I would check to see if the power supply is the correct one for that particular unit. The amperage is the key. If it is the correct amps (I think it is 3 for 4 amps, and if I am wrong please correct me) then it is a simple solution.

If it is not, then you have a problem. There is no mention of a fuse in the manual. Other than replacing the motherboard, there is nothing else to do. You can pick up a motherboard on eBay and the replacement is rather straight forward.

I can send you the repair manual.

Hi

You should be able to operate the unit without the battery. If you can not then it is time to replace the motherboard.

Motherboards do fail (I have a nice pile).

Hi
The whole unit works perfectly, it only doesn't work without external power supply...
Anyway, I won't give up that easily. It's somehow traditional in my country to fix the old thing rather than buy new one and I'm not going to make exception ;). I only hoped I'd be able to do it myself...
Thanks for all info!
Regards
Ozyg
