ThinkCentre M83 / M93p Small Form Factor Desktop – Internal Speaker Replacement


Hello everyone. I’m Brandon with Lenovo,
and I’m here today with the ThinkCentre M93p Small Form Factor Desktop. Today we are going to be replacing the internal speaker. This process will take about fifteen minutes, and it should be easy enough for anyone to do. The only tool required will be a Phillips screwdriver, but a non-metallic pry tool might come in handy. Before we continue, we need to make sure that we are protected against electrostatic discharge, or ESD. Make sure to shut down your computer and disconnect all cables and accessories from the system. For more information, watch our Understanding Electrostatic Discharge video by clicking the link in the description. And now that we’re ready, let’s get started. To remove the computer cover, we must remove two thumb screws in the back of the machine. The first thumb screw. And the second thumb screw. Then we’re going to press down on the release button, and slide the cover towards the rear of the chassis and remove it. Now we’re going to pull outward on the clips
to release the bezel. Now we are going to swing the front bezel
open like a door and remove it. So now we need to open the drive bay assembly.
To do so, you just press inward on the latch marked with the blue touch point and pivot the drive bay assembly upwards until the latch springs into place. Now we are going to disconnect the speaker cable from the system board. To remove the speaker, we are going to reach in from the front of the chassis and press
forward on the retaining clip, and then slide the speaker towards the system fan. Then remove it from the system. Here we have our replacement speaker. Now I am going to place the speaker into the chassis underneath the retaining clips, and slide the speaker away from the system fan until it locks into place. Now we need to connect the speaker cable to the system board. To close the drive bay assembly, we need to press inward on this latch marked with the blue touch point and pivot the drive bay assembly downward until it latches into place. When replacing the front bezel, there are three hinge clips that we want to align with
the three holes on the inside of the chassis. You’re going to line those up and then close the front bezel like a door. We’re going to press inward on the clips
to secure the front bezel. When replacing the computer cover, we want
to ensure that we are lining up the tabs on the cover with the slots in the chassis. Just place the cover down onto the chassis and slide it forward. Finally we replace two thumb screws in the rear of the machine. First thumb screw. And the second thumb screw.
