My controls will not open or close my garage door. The wired control works. I read that the logic board is bad. How much is the logic board and how hard is it to install. Is it better to just get another...

A new board is @ $86.00. Because I do not know your skill level I really cannot say whether it is easy or hard to install. I have replaced boards and I find it easy, but my brother would find it impossible. So it is subjective and you know your own skill level better than anyone else. I personally feel that it is not too complicated for a typical homeowner to do. In this economic time, some people have no choice and cannot spend the extra money for a new opener, but again I do not know your financial situation either. So the choice is yours, but if you can use a screwdriver and stand comfortably on a ladder, I would replace the board. I hope this helps and good luck!

Initially, pls check D854 on the Power Supply/Logic board. It is a dual diode. If you would prefer board replacement rather than component level repair, this might be of help. This of course would require a fair familiarity of electronic components/circuitry and safety procedures, use of a DVM and a soldering iron. It would be to your added advantage access to a service manual or at the very least a schematic diagram with voltage readings. Should you be uncomfortable performing a DIY (do-it-yourself), perhaps your best bet would then be to seek the services of a qualified professional.

This is of course in addition to checking the usual, power cord, fuse, outlet etc.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

The problem is fairly common and while you could test the long-shot possibility that it's not the inverter but the actual CCFL "bulb" (a tube really) that produces the light and sits in the bottom of the LCD panel, the chances are that it's a circuitry problem on the logic board. I've never had luck replacing inverters in these computers (though it works like a charm in PCs).

With the symptoms you have though, it might make sense to try the $20 inverter rather than replace the logic board. It's really quite simple. Just follow the instructions on THIS PAGE and select Apple MacBook Pro (even though you have a PowerBook it's almost exactly the same.)

It will walk you through taking the back off and pulling the LCD, but just notice that on Diagram #2 it shows you where the inverter board is. Just take it out, remove the two cables going to it and replace it with a known good one from eBay. It will be a great $20 way to check a cheap solution. After that fails, replace the logic board.

Or, for more fun, find another person with another laptop who doesn't mind you pulling it apart. Almost all 12" laptops will use a similar CCFL, so you can plug your LCD panel into just the two prong CCFL plug (shown in step 3 of the walk through). If you find someone else with a powerbook or iBook I know for certain that your screen's CCFL plug will fit.

So you could do all this or you could find someone on Craigslist to do it for you for a pretty cheap cost. Good Luck.

to peachgroup: if you have a lighted White screen, it is something completely different.

Dell E173FPf lcd- no picture,steady green light

E173FPf Mfg December 2004
This E173FPF has changed much inside from the November 2003 E172fpb which had the famous 4 identical transistors 5707 that would tend to fail in pairs. If your newer E173FPF displays a green power light and fails to display a picture try replacing the 220uf25v capacitors at C6 and C26. Test them with a volt ohm meter and they will test Ok, replace them anyway. Radio Shack did not have the 25v so I used the 35v, display works fine now. There is an E173FPF repair kit with directions available on Ebay if you don't have a parts store in your area and would prefer delivery.

i'm not an expert at anything...x'cept maybe dumpster diving. God Bless
