Speaker problems N586 bad right speaker

2014-07-31, 15:17 PM

Does the grill on the speakers pop right off?  My right speaker sounds like it is blown.  I would like to make a visual inspection before replacing speaker.  If I found a tear I might apply some nail polish to get rid of the vibrations.

Okay, I am posting the rather simple solution since Lenovo has been of absolutely no use.

 

Speakers are purchased on line for less than $3 including shipping in used condition.

 

  1. Turn the laptop over and remove the battery and power supply
  2. Remove the screws for the keyboard (3).  You will see keyboard icon next to the screw holes.
  3. Gently pry out the keyboard starting above the top row of keyes.  A small nail file of jewelers screwdriver will help.  There is a video on line to show this procedure on a different popular website.
  4. Once keyboard is removed, unplug the ribbon for keyboard by lifting on the horizontal bar that holds the ribbon cable.
  5. Put keyboard aside, blow clean if necessary.
  6. Flip laptop again to reveal all of the screws on the back.  Remove all screws and make notes on where they go for reassemble.
  7. After all screws on rear are removed, flip laptop rightside up.  Look for Lenovo oval sticky.  Last screw is under this piece of paper,  Peel this off to remove the final screw.
  8. Use a thin putty knife to slide around edge and pop the laptop main faceplate around keyboard.  It has snap fittings every inch or two. Do this all the way around including between the 8 inches between hinges.
  9. Remove the main faceplate  and disconnect 2 ribbon cables by pulling on the BLUE tabs.
  10. Speakers are now exposed and can be replaced.  You will probably have to remove one motherboard screw at 12 oclock position in order to remove the left speaker wire.
  11. Reassemble in reverse.
  12. Main faceplate will require ample pressure to snap back into place.  Dont forget to snap the 4-5 positions between the hinges.

Thanks to me and no thanks to Lenovo for their meaningless advice.

Another non answer.  Thats strike 2. One more strike and I am out of here for good.

 

This appears to be a dead forum.  Hope I can find another forum where someone can get real answers.
