XBOX 360 laptop screen boards...

Post by ssmith43654 » Mon Sep 06, 2010 2:17 pm

I am not sure as to where to split my inverter/driver board for my HANNS-G HW173.
Here is the link for the pictures of it on my wensite:

If you complete this project, you will without a shadow of a doubt be regarded as the smartest 13 year old kid in your entire school. Good luck with it dude and I'm sorry I cannot help with your screen board... But don't get discouraged and get this bad boy done!

I've done this a dozen times.

Skip splitting the board- Use the power from the brick/host/motherboard, and purchase a universal LCD inverter. Simple as that! Smaller, too.

No, but that will work... There are 2 bulb versions out there.

You'll need to figure out which lead coming from the LCD controller is the one which turns the inverter on, and which controls brightness.

Put up some HIGH!! res shots of both boards- Should be easy enough if you can't do it on your own.
