--Thanks to Rudolph and "Slip" for their advice. I got as far as taking
apart the LCD screen assembly last night, but I could not take apart the
base cover as my new torx kit was only size T6 to T9. I'm gonna pick up a
T1 today. You guys are right, the hinge and keyboard cam assemblies are
tricky to work on, but I managed to take everything apart up there and put
it back together again. The laptop does boot up and will show video to an
external monitor. The onboard LCD screen just shows an out of sync picture
that looks like when you put in an incompatible video card in a desktop.
Question to the list. Does anyone repair these LCd displays on the list?
If so would a loose connector show this type of out of sync image, or would
it not show anything at all? What does a shot LCD look like? Anyone want to
offer me repair prices for repairing the LCD. Just fishing for info. Thank
guys and gals.
