Question about Panasonic Toughbook 51 Notebook
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.
