Opening VAXstation 3100 Enclosure?

» close window

The Question is:

I have a vaxstation 3100 model 30.  How do
I open the case?

The Answer is :

  The enclosure contains a variety of static-sensitive components and
  there are potentially hazardous or even lethal voltages present
  within the system enclosure.
  All hardware service should be refered to appriopriately qualified
  and trained personnel.
  If you have the appropriate training and experience and equipment for
  for working on static-sensitive devices, then first perform a full
  (standalone) disk BACKUP, shut down and then power down the system,
  and then unplug the system power cord.  To open the enclosure, unscrew
  the two captive phillips-head screws located on the extreme lateral
  edges of the rear of the system enclosure, and slide the top cover
  away from the screws toward the front of the enclosure, and then lift
  the cover upward.
