Toshiba Satellite C50 User Manual: Writable Discs

User manual.
Hide thumbs


When the disc tray pops open slightly, wait a moment to make sure the
disc has stopped spinning before pulling the disc tray fully open.
How to remove disc when the disc tray will not open
Pressing the eject button will not open the disc tray when the computer
power is off. If the power is off, you can open the disc tray by inserting a
slender object (about 20 mm) such as a straightened paper clip into the
manual eject hole near the eject button.
1. Manual eject hole
Turn off the power before you use the manual eject hole. If the disc is
spinning when you open the disc tray, the disc could fly off the spindle and
cause injury.

    I purchased a c55 laptop and have no passwords so I can't do anything with it can you help me?

    I purchased the laptop for a song due to a crushed LCD screen
    A few months later a salvaged LCD screen became available but the chassis was a little bit larger at the hinge assembly by an 3/16
    After removing the glass from the lid chassis it fit into the rightful housing.
    O​riginally I'd removed the assembly hinges from the body thus opening the clamshell completely as well the LCD screen associated connector and the black and white (assuming) WIFI connection wires which is the main focus of this post

    I cannot find a service manual/vid​eo/informa​tional of the exact location as the ends appear to snap into a given contact hole
    After chasing the wires through their gides I am left with ambiguous options at best
    Any info would be much appreciate​d ~THX

    This Toshiba labtop satelite c50 is a faulty machine. On the manual it says it had an eject button for to open the CD drive unfortunat​ely it does have one.
    PC world sold me this computer some months ago and I recommend not to use this shop due to selling faulty goods.
    Sta​y away from Toshiba laptop because the faulty has not been rectified.
