Compaq R3000 series LCD Display info - help me change out my inverter please.
Posted on 2006-04-03
I have in my hands a Presario Laptop (R3000 series) R3410US.
The display has dimmed out (gradual failure) and now has NOT backlight at all.
I feel confident the issue is a failed INVERTER and i can ONLY assume that the
inverter is located inside the display (lid protion) itself.
I've downloaded HP/Compaqs Service manual for the product which
is very helpful with the assembly/disaasembly of the product, however ...
I does NOT deal with servicing the guts of the display.
Does anybody Know FOR SURE that the inverter IS infact located inside the "lid"
(display itself) and ...
Do you KNOW for SURE how to get the display OPEN without breaking it?
I find NO screws of other fasteners accessable to open the "lid"
but HAVE in my hands the replacement inverter, but the HP/Compaq
documentation is quite useless for this step, since it doesnot PICTURE the
part or it's location, nor does it go into the "how-to" of changing it out.
Please and Thank you oh so much.
