The last hinote I encountered
Had some screws on the back side to remove. But I don't see an online manual. Did you find one?
Yes I found two screws near the front edge on the bottom
That allowed me to separate the front edge a bit, but not enough to access
I'd love to find a service manual or even an IPB
for it. I did find a Users Manual, but no help on
To make matters more fun back then
You found case screws under the labels on the machine.
Some owners would complain about the labels getting torn up but I discovered how the service centers avoided that. It's a doozy. At service centers they would apply new labels after the work was done.
And of course there were cases where the plastics had many tangs to rip open.
It's been almost 1996 since I saw this model so this is all I can remember.
Label is on a moving part.
I don't think there are any screws under the label on the "trapdoor"
used to connect the floppy drive module.
Then the other place.
Many models back then had a procedure to remove the keyboard and under that you would find more case screws.
Remember back then they were not making this to be obvious how to open. At least you have nothing to lose.
That sounds like a possibility.
the palm rest and track ball mouse lift some but beyond that it is tight. Any suggestions on how to remove the keyboard?
Sorry it was 1996 so I'm not there to see it and
Refresh the memory cells. Since no docs on the net, we are left with memories. Again, not much to lose here. It's dead technology.
Thanks for trying!
I realize it's been a long time.
Would you believe some guy has one of these listed on EBay currently for $125.? I guess the value is in the nostalgia.
