    I checked the Radio Shack web site and could not find a 30 conductor flat cable.

  • Rick Ciurej Dec 16, 2008

    I tried shopJimmys.com and they didn't have it, but recommended Vance baldwin and they could not locate it either.

  • Rick Ciurej Dec 16, 2008

    That is where I started, I purchased the inverter board at LCD Repair LLC. I then contacted them for the ribbon cable and they do not carry it at this time, so that is what brought me here.

  • Rick Ciurej Dec 16, 2008

    Like I just said to the previous posted solution, that is where I purchased the inverter board, but they don't carry the cable. http://www.lcdrepair.us/e173fpf-logic.ht...

  • Rick Ciurej Dec 16, 2008

    I tried the link and part of the cable number seems correct, but the picture doesn't look like the part that I need. In addition to that, the auction already ended for that item.http://www.oztion.com.au/buy/auction.asp...

  • Rick Ciurej Dec 16, 2008

    After removing the cable from the connector, I notice that the cable has the contacts exposed. I am not seeing any real way of rejoing the cable, other than cutting all the way accross and reinserting that to the connector. How would I expose the contacts?

  • Rick Ciurej Dec 16, 2008

    It has a couple folds. It is approx. 9" long if it was straight, but it has two folds to bring both connectors side by side, making the cables equally approx. 3" long

  • Rick Ciurej Dec 16, 2008

    I am replacing the whole inverter board, I am looking for the flat cable that connects the board to the LCD display.

  • Rick Ciurej Dec 16, 2008

    This cable that I'm looking for is for a DELL E173FPf LCd computer monitor.

    I am looking for the cable that connects the inverter board to the display.

    The number that I listed is the number that is located on the cable itself

    (P-Two AWM 20969 E221612). I hope maybe this might be more helpful.

  • Rick Ciurej Dec 16, 2008

    I purchased the inverter board from LCD Repair LLC and it did not include the cable. I also checked one other place that I was looking to purchase the inverter board and they didn't include the cable either. I contacted both places and I was told that they do not sell this cable.

  • Rick Ciurej Dec 16, 2008

    I tried using Dells web site for parts and ended getting no where. I was transferred and told to talk to different departments, but in the end I still can not locate the cable that I need.

  • Rick Ciurej Dec 16, 2008

    That would be great, the problem I am having is locating a place to purchase this cable.

  • Rick Ciurej Dec 17, 2008

    So far no luck

  • Rick Ciurej Dec 17, 2008

    I use digikey for many parts, but they don't have it.

This part is not sold in as by itself and you will need to buy the whole inverter board!

Hi, You could do either of these. 1. You could contact this person  robcomp@suddenlink.net
who claimed that he has this cable in one of the forums.

2. Contact Dell http://supportapj.dell.com/support/edocs/monitors/E173FP/En/appendix.htm

or else, get a similar broken LCD from ebay and salvage the cable.

    you need to be patient because if you cant get it from the dell stores and still you can get it online you will need to visit a computer hardware vendor/ repairer who have thesame monitor but the monitor is completely damaged so that he can repalce it for you. but it is going to be expensive.

    The part is quite difficult to find, Contact andrea.zhoug_linksequipment@yahoo.com

    or
    Waltercastle@hotmail.com

    Check if they still have in stock

    Or contact HP to get the part, see: Contact Us page

    Try also techcomp@sbcglobal.net, note that E221612 is the part number for the HP touchpad ribbon cable, and not the LCD.

    It will be useful knowing the laptop full model rather than the model number only.


  • Ginko
    Ginko Dec 16, 2008

    I know what it is , it is the LCD ribbon cable

    It would be easy if we got the model, part number you gave is for a touchpad cable.

    Here is the LCD cable for HP PAVILION DV1000 - 14.1" LCD SCREEN CABLE This is instead Display Inverter Cable that powers the inverter.

    Let me know if model is correct, and what part you need.



  • Ginko
    Ginko Dec 16, 2008

    I wanted to know the model, if this is a Dell, like in title you find the part at Dell - Replacement Spare Parts & Upgrades

    If it is an HP, as the part number you gave returns an HP part, contact: Contact HP parts page

    If it is a different manufacturer, please provide the exact model.

    Thanks

  • Ginko
    Ginko Dec 17, 2008

    You find the cable here: Dell - Replacement Spare Parts & Upgrades

    Contact them first, and possibly before answering to us.

    Give us feedback after contacting

Which model of Inverter Board does HP pavilion f1503 uses? My backlight keeps on dimming after 10 secs of start up. please be spefic with the model number


The part is a "ribbon cable" for an lcd monitor...ribbon made by Youngshin (AWM 2896 30V 80C VW-1).

2 ribbon cables for a hp pavilion f1503 LCD monitor (the two from the AD board to the TCP)

The LCD panel is made by HannStar (HSD150SX84).

Also, looking for other LCD parts, particularly:
the AD board for a Proview Pro-576 (I assume Sylvania PL-576 & Mag LT576s are similar); Board #: 200-100-AS576 Rev: B MV5-S2?
It uses a sampo inverter (QPWBGL8621DG) & a AU Optronics M150XN05 LCD.

On my Acer AL1916W monitor the screen comes on for a few seconds then goes off but the power light is still green.


Hi.

That is often an inverter failure. Try turning off the room light, and point a flashlight sticking to the dark screen. If you can see a very faint picture, then the inverter has failed.
Before replacing the inverter, the PSU must also be tested. If the PSU does not supply power to inverter, then the PSU and not the inverter is the part to be tested.

If the screen is not dark, but there is backlight and no picture, then the problem is not the inverter. In that case check the source and the connection cable. If the cable is OK, then it is usually the main controller board inside the monitor. Once again the part must be tested.

Regards.

Ginko.

My dell monitor turns on for 2 seconds then goes black and the green light blinks orange


I assume that you already try this monitor on another PC to verify that the problem is in the monitor, in this case you need to open it up and inspect the fuse, transitors, solder connections on the power/inverter board, see failed Dell monitors here for guide: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further.

When turned on, monitor power light comes on for a moment and then goes out. Monitor eventually comes on after several minutes. The same happens if the monitor is left on but goes into sleep mode.


This is a common problem on these monitors. There are three or four capacitors in the power supply, three on the inverter board and anywhere from 2 to 6 on the main board that go bad.

The number on the main board depends on how long the monitor has been having problems before it was serviced. The longer the wait, the more capacitors will have gone bad.

The power and inverter boards are easy to repair, the main board is not. As mentioned, it is a multi layer board so removing the old capacitors and the old solder can be troublesome. I would suggest you have someone experienced at soldering repair the main board.

Btw, our shop would charge $60 labour plus $2 for each capacitor.

Power problem


for the quickest fix, you should try a new power supply cord and see if its just a bad cable. almost any monitor cable (dell brand) should work. if you do not see any of the lights on the monitor light up then you have an internal problem and it will be costly to repair. probably better of buying a new monitor.

Can't find an inverter board for my X9G Komodo III


You can try http://providencedata.com/. They have a huge selection of inverter boards. If you are using the monitor and are confident in your souldering skills you can usually buy the capacitors for about 20-30 cents each... Bit of a risk if it goes and burns up on ya though ;)
