IIRC only 1 person has reported being able to change the faceplate. It's not an easy job!
Hello.Haaggie said:Removing the faceplate isn't hard job, and for sure possible. Looks and sounds difficult, but it isn't:
The procedure for removing the face plate is the following (in order):
1. turn the unit on, and place the screen in the 'open' position (screen flat). Keep it this way (so don't let it close it, turn the power off with screen flat)
2. remove the 3 black screws under the display. Yes, they are damn tight...Use a good screwdriver with the right fit. Don't use the small watchmaker screwdrivers. You can't get enough grip with these ones. Hold the screen when you remove the last screw
3. Take the screen carefully out of the rails. Release the flatcable connecter from your screen to the RNS-E. The screen is loose now.
4. remove the screws on the left and right side of the RNS-E (4 big screws on each side). Also remove the 2 smaller screws of the faceplate on the underside of the RNS-E
5. remove the plate on top of the RNS-E (the one with the RNS-E type# on it)
6. disconnect the flat cable (the one from the faceplate to the RNS-E) carefully
7. release/fold out the 2 clamps on the left and right side of the RNS-E
8. Take the faceplate off
To fix the plate: follow the procedure in reverse order.
Thx for reply.PROXUS said:are you sure that unit died?
Maybe video strip is disconnected from your LCD?
