    Hi dahaka,

    Thank You for getting back to me so quickly. I am a certified computer tech. a bit rusty but I think still able. I wanted to check replacement part prices before testing the board, waste of time if parts are too expensive. Thank You for the link, I have book marked it. At this point I think a refurb from Tiger Direct would be the best way to go ($139.00 + S&H.) Thank You Again!! jeanat

    Hi Benimur, Your sugesstions were very helpful, I found a Hitachi Travelstar C4K60 slim HD at Tech For Less for $64.00. with the screen replacement, it will cost less to buy a refurb. Tech For Less only had 1 refurbished 30 GB HD. If any one else crashed their HD I hope this helps. The screen is a Data Image SF030530 REV: A. Thank You !! jeanat

Hi,

Where can I get parts?”

1. Contact Archos Online Store Representative by calling 1-866-489-4718;
2. Here is a page of their US retailers & distributors;
3. Here is a possible source of generic/replacement components for some Archos products.

LCD screen - 3.5'' TFT (320X240 pixels) 4/3, 16 million colors. Try this one.

Alternately, you need to check if your 404 uses Sanyo TM038QV-22Z07A LCD screen. If yes, you can try getting in touch with www.tuan-lcd.com Tel: 0086-13480747113 Email: tuan-lcd@hotmail.com / candy21_lcd@yahoo.com.cn MSN: tuan-lcd@hotmail.com

Or you can try suppliers of LCD screens for PDAs.

HD - 30 GB – some versions uses laptop hard drives. You may need to update the firmware using your PC with an adapter. Here is a do-it-yourself upgrade/replacement tutorial for another model (AV400) which may be of additional help. And here is for an AV420.

Hope that this be of some help. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

    Hi again,

    You may want to re-consider the cost of replacement parts + shipping, downtime and repairs involve. It may be to your advantage to consider purchasing another unit.

    My apologies to bbtoast and dahaka. Did not realize that you gentlemen have already posted.

Screen smashed on my lcd tv


Your question really deserves two separate answers. First, yes the screen can be replaced. The second answer is a little more detailed. Is it worth replacing? That is the real question. I think that you will find that the replacement panel for the TV will cost almost as much as a replacement TV. Given the pricing of TVs lately, I would not be surprised to find that you can purchase a complete replacement for LESS than the cost of the panel.

change out the LVDS cable (the cable that go from the control board to the main board) and it should resolve your problem. If your TV is still in warranty, call 1-877-MY-VIZIO and they will set up an in home repair for free.

Depending on your market, it sounds like all of the other analogue channels have been terminated (not your son's fault) in order to provide stronger HD signals. You may need to run to wallmart and get that $50 decoder box.

Smashed screen


It may well be repairable since it probably isn't that old but with the plunge of flat panel prices, it may cost more to repair than replace. 
If you replace the whole set, don't buy another plasma; while they are a tad better than the LCDs of the period it was manufactured, there isn't much difference in the two systems today and the LCD display will not decay over time as the plasma is known to do.

LCD screen went blank


to fix this problem is usualy simple, 90% of the time if you have a blank screen it is because the screen has come unplugged, open the casing of the phone and just plug the screen back into the circuit borad this should solve ur problem, please note this does not work if you have full white screen. hope this helps people with this problem.
