Question about Dell Latitude D800 Notebook
I found out yesterday that the reason my LCD kept dimming after a few minutes of use was that the backlight is broken. I'm planning on just purchasing a new display to replace the old one. Can you provide me with the steps involved? Also, any recommendations on places where I can buy just the display?
You can find a great many displays for sale on e bay from great places for rather cheap. I just repalced the mother board on my Inspiron 600m for $119 direct from Japan right off the line. As for replacing, it is rather easy.... there are little rubber stoppers around your screen about the size of pincle erasers. Under these is screws, undoo the screws to remove the plastic housing. Then where the power button is, that strip of plastic comes up easy from either the left or the right... you will see a little slot for a small flat head scew driver to go in to pry up the side. Pry it up and (make sure you have the screen laying flat ie, all the way open) and pull the strip up but not to hard, it should come up pretty easy. This will give you access to the connection for the cables to the screen. Then it is just undooing the screws that mount the hinges and then screen from the back pastics and then repeating in reverse.
The following is a link to a 15.4" lcd for the dell D800 on ebay that includes the plastics and hinges, so all you would have to do is remove the plastic by the power button and then it is plug n play.
