Question about Panasonic Toughbook 51 Notebook

1 Answer

What are the voltage and amperage values for the screen on a CF51 toughbook?

I got a toughbook for free that had a busted screen. I just recently got a replacement screen through a friend, but the connectors were different. The old screen had a single connector for both video and power whereas the new screen had seperate connectors for the video and power, so very carefully one wire at a time I cut and soldered to switch connectors. Now that I have the new screen installed I can just barely see a picture on it so I think I may have a bad connection or two somewhere so I need to know what the voltage and amperage is supposed to be so I can compare it to what I actually have.

I'm going to say that the problem will lie with the inverter. You will have better luck finding the voltage and amperage ranges through Panasonic's support site. I looked around on the net, and through the resources I have here at my shop, and found nothing pertaining to these ranges, mostly because this is not normally done. I've interchanged screens before, only if they have the same connection type in approx the same location on the back of the screen, so I could use the original cable/ribbon that is for that particular machine. I've never gone as far as making the cable, or soldiering each wire. In my opinion that is GREAT that you have the ingenuity to do this, most people I encounter here barely know how to turn their machine on. Good luck with this, I hope it works out for you.

How to select a boot device


The Panasonic Toughbook CF51 may not be able to boot
from a USB external Hard Drive. When you press the F2
function key and go to BOOT devices, I believe that USB HDD
is NOT an option. However, when the drive is plugged-in
and you start the CF51, press the ESC key immediately.
All boot devices should be shown and you might be able
to boot from that menu. If not, then it is NOT bootable.
Good Luck!
