This document contains step-by-step disassembly instructions for the Packard Bell EasyNote SJ. The instructions are illustrated where necessary with images of the part that is being removed or disassembled. Packard Bell reserves the right to make changes to the EasyNote SJ without notice.
Only technicians authorized by Packard Bell B.V. should attempt to repair this equipment. All troubleshooting and repair procedures are detailed to allow only subassembly/module level repair. Because of the complexity of the individual boards and subassemblies, no one should attempt to make repairs at the component level or to make modifications to any printed wiring board. Improper repairs can create a safety hazard. Any indication of component replacement or printed wiring board modifications may void any warranty or exchange allowances.
When disassembling the system unit, follow these general rules: Turn off the power using the power button. Disconnect the adapter. Remove any SD/MMC card, ExpressCard or dummy card from the device. Do not disassemble the system into parts that are smaller than those specified in the instructions. Label all removed connectors; note where the connector goes and in what position it was installed.
Reassembly is the reverse of the disassembly process. Use care to ensure that all cables and screws are returned to their proper positions. Check that no tools or any loose parts have been left inside the casing. Check that everything is properly installed and tightened.
All disassembly procedures can be performed using the following tools: Small Phillips and flat-blade screwdriver. Hex-bolt #5 screwdriver
There is hazardous voltage present inside the notebook when it is connected to an AC supply, even when the notebooks power switch is off. Exposure to hazardous voltage could cause personal injury. To avoid risk of injury, contact an Authorized Service Provider for proper (un)installation of optional hardware devices.
WARNING Ensure that the notebook is disconnected from its power source and from all telecommunications links, networks, or modem lines whenever the casing cover is removed. Do not operate the notebook with the cover removed. AVERTISSEMENT Assurez-vous que le systme est dbranch de son alimentation ainsi que de toutes les liaisons de tlcommunication, des rseaux, et des lignes de modem avant denlever le capot. Ne pas utiliser le systme quand le capot est enlev. WARNUNG Das System darf weder an eine Stromquelle angeschlossen sein noch eine Verbindung mit einer Telekommunikationseinrichtung, einem Netzwerk oder einer Modem-Leitung haben, wenn die Gehuseabdeckung entfernt wird. Nehmen Sie das System nicht ohne die Abdeckung in Betrieb. ADVERTENCIA Asegrese de que cada vez que se quite la cubierta del porttil, el sistema haya sido desconectado de la red de alimentacin y de todos lo enlaces de telecomunicaciones, de red y de lneas de mdem. No ponga en funcionamiento el sistema mientras la cubierta est quitada. WAARSCHUWING Zorg er voor dat alle verbindingen van en naar de notebook (stroom, modem, netwerk, etc) verbroken worden voordat de behuizing geopend wordt. Zet de notebook nooit aan als de behuizing geopend is. AVVERTENZA Prima di rimuovere il coperchio del telaio, assicurarsi che il sistema sia scollegato dallalimentazione, da tutti i collegamenti di comunicazione, reti o linee di modem. Non avviare il sistema senza aver prima messo a posto il coperchio.
Avoid Electrostatic Discharge
Electrostatic electricity can easily damage circuit cards and integrated circuits (ICs). To reduce risk of damage, store them in protective packaging whenever they are not installed in the system. Add-in cards can be extremely sensitive to ESD and always require careful handling. After removing the card from the notebook, place the card flat on a grounded, static-free surface, component-side up. Use a conductive foam pad if available, but not the card wrapper. Do not slide the card over any surface. Before you install or remove memory modules, video memory, disk drives, circuit cards or other devices, protect them from static electricity. To do so, make sure the notebooks power switch is OFF. Then, unplug the notebooks AC power cord. Before picking up the device you (un)install, you should wear an anti-static wrist wrap (available at electronic supply stores). Be sure to connect the wrist wrap to an unpainted metal portion of the notebook casing. As an alternative, you can dissipate electrostatic buildup by touching an unpainted metal portion of the notebook casing with one hand. Then touch the device you are (un)installing with the other hand, and maintain continuous contact with it until it is (un)installed in the notebook.
Power Supply Unit
Under no circumstances should you attempt to disassemble the power supply. The power supply contains no user-serviceable parts. Inside the power supply are hazardous voltages that can cause serious personal injury. Always return a defective power supply to the dealer.
Perform the following steps to remove the battery: 1. Make sure the power is off. 2. Turn the notebook upside down.
Note: Use an anti-static mat or something soft like a piece of cloth underneath the notebook to prevent damage to the exterior of the notebook.
3. Push the 2 locks outwards to the release the battery. 4. Slide the battery out of the compartment.

Fig. 4 Location of hard disk drive bracket screws.
Note: The EasyNote SJ uses S-ATA hard drives exclusively. S-ATA hard drives have no jumpers and need no specific configuration settings to work in a system with multiple hard drives.
Note: The hard drive bays are numbered in the casing (HDD1 and HDD2). The number of the bay corresponds with the sequence in the BIOS: the hard disk drive in bay 1 should be labelled HDD1 in the system BIOS.
Note: If the system ships with 2 hard drives, they will be configured as 2 separate drives and not in any type of RAID configuration.
