Swapped out hdd cf-52 nothing happening


When you swapped out the Hard Disk Drive
of the Panasonic Toughbook CF52 it is very
importatnt that you did not "hot" swap the HDD
but that you turned off the unit with a full shutdown
and unplugged it as well.

Once you removed the Hard Disk Drive (HDD)
I am assuming that you replaced the drive with
another drive that had a proper operating system
already installed. If not, then of course nothing
happened since you replaced the HDD with a blank
or unformatted HDD.

One way to verify if the replacement Hard Drive
is recognized by the Toughbook is to go into
the BIOS by pressing the F2 function key and
checking the size or capacity of the replacement
Hard Disk Drive. If it shows the proper value,
then the HDD is recognized at the Hardware Level.

If it shows HDD as None or Zero then the replacement
HDD is NOT recognized and you have to try a different
drive which is functional.

Good Luck!

Panasonic CF-52 Unusable USB Ports


Not usable? Are they broken?

Go into the bios and make sure USB is enabled. Restart your computer and look at the screen to see which key to hit to get into the BIOS or System Setup. Look for USB to make sure it is enabled.

If you have a pcmcia slot on your laptop, you can always buy a device that sticks into it that will have usb ports on it for less than $30 - $40. Otherwise you might need a repairman to take the laptop apart and solder new usb ports to the motherboard.

How do I replace my keyboard on a CF-52


For the Panasonic ToughBook CF-52 series of Notebook PC's, it's a little tougher to remove the Keyboard, than per se other models.

1) With all repair on laptops first remove ALL power.
Remove the AC adapter (Charger), and Battery.

2) Next you should follow Anti-Static Precautions. A little more on this as to why as you read, but you'll also see you will be very near the Processor.
A Processor is the most susceptible hardware component in a computer, to Static shock.
(It's close to the Keyboard Lid Plate under the Keyboard)

Anti-Static Precautions:
Your body carries Static electricity.
Static can fry out (Short Circuit) the delicate hardware components inside a computer.

The best method is to buy, and wear an ESD wrist strap, and connect it's alligator clip to a good ground source. (Electro Static Discharge. About $5)

The next best method (Debatable) is to place a large metal object on the table, and touch it before disassembling the laptop, and occasionally during.
(Metal serving dish, metal knickknack, etc.)

3) Components to be removed in order; [Straight from the Service Manual]

A) Power, as mentioned

B) The HarDDrive and it's mounting kit.

C) The DVD optical drive

D) The Tilt Panel Assembly
Simply the top outer cover along with the LCD screen that is mounted to it.
The part you tilt up and look at.

E) Keyboard Lid Cover

F) Keyboard

4) Use a multi-compartment container for the various screws you will remove. Mark each container for the area the screw/s come out of.
DO NOT mix them up!

[Some screws look very similar to other screws, plus they are S-M-A-L-L.
Put a screw in the wrong hole, and it may seize halfway in.
Cannot remove it without damaging the laptop, and cannot screw it all the way in.

You can substitute using a multi-compartment container, and use a clean egg carton instead.
Label each egg holder]

Make drawings, and notes if you wish. A guide to return to in case you are interrupted.

5) This is a link to the Service Manual for the Panasonic ToughBook CF-52 series of Notebook PC's.
It is for a CF-52EKMxDxM, but will work for all CF-52 series models, (Manual is free),

http://www.tim.id.au/blog/tims-laptop-service-manuals/#toc-panasonic

Page 24 for the Disassembly Flowchart
Page 25 for removing the HarDDrive, and it's mounting kit, plus the DVD optical drive.
Page 26 for the Tilt Panel Assembly
Page 29 for removing the Keyboard Lid Plate, and Keyboard.
