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.

Panasonic toughbook cf-31 "plugged in, not charging"


Are you sure that you are using the authentic Panasonic Toughbook AC Adapter? The Panasonic Part Number is:CFAA5713AM
The correct Voltage and Amperage is: 15.6 volts and 7.05Amps.
When the power supply is 3Amps then the total watts is less than half, which is enough to power the computer but not enough to charge the battery pack. Good Luck.

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!

Never light up on screen when turn it on


On any Panasonic Toughbook, if the LCD does not "Light-Up", I would try the following:

Step 1: Make sure the Toughbook is Powered Off.
Step 2: Hook-up and external LCD Monitor to the VGA Port.
(On the CF51 with the ports facing you, the VGA Port is the third connector "color blue" from the right hand side).
Step 3: Power On the external LCD Monitor.
Step 4: Power on the Toughbook.

If the external monitor works then purchase a second hand external monitor. A used 17" LCD monitor should cost $20 or less and the VGA cable (used) should cost $5 or less.

This also means that your LCD may be burnt out. If this was a CF53 or even a CF52 then it is worthwhile to repair. The CF51 in my opinion is too old but at least you can continue to use it with an external monitor hooked-up.

That is it. Good Luck and Best Regards from:
