Question about Panasonic TOUGHBOOK CF-18 Tablet PC

Panasonic CF-18 screens

I am the jr network admin for an ambulance service that uses toughbooks. Several of our toughbooks have broken screens from stretchers landing on them. I replaced the lcd in one , now I have a beautiful display with bright vivid colors, and NOOOOOO touchscreen capability. I put everything back just like I found it... with the exception of new lcd screen , what did I do wrong ? Does anyone have instructions for this sort of thing ?

    Yeah, I discovered the problem by dissecting another model that was dead to the world. One ribbon connector loose, and the digitizer is also cracked. gotta have a new one.

    Hi, I've got a problem with my CF-18. All was working fine until I rotated the screen and the screen ribbon cable pulled tight and tore its connections. I've been struggling to find a replacement ribbon cable, could anyone please suggest where I could obtain one of these? Many thanks.

You will, at the very least, need to have the screen and screen cover replaced. If the hinges also damaged the bottom case to which they are attached, then it too will need replacing.

If you can't get it repaired locally, let me know.
