  • Dismantling a Linitx Transflective Screen - NEW FABRICATIOR NEEDED

    Has anyone done this? Can someone provide instructions cause my fabrication can't seem to figure it out.


    EDIT

    Now i'm in the need of a fabricator that can actually do what they say they will do. Any Takers PM ME

    Hey Guys,

    I wasn't able to take apart this screen for Corrie. It was a bit to diffucult as the screen does not open like it should. I sent back everything and paid for shipping back ($40) because I was not able to take it apart because I did not want to risk breaking the screen.

    Bump
    Best of Luck.

      Let me clarify Nexon's statement. Its not that the screen didn't come apart as it should it just comes apart differently than his experiences. Its a bit more challenging than other monitors from what he has told me. Although from this forum i've read its pretty easy, but mine specifically could just be a fluke.

        Well I have dismantled the non transreflective Linitx 7" and found it fairly simple, as long as you take care when doing so. Which you should do with any thing you take apart.

        The one to note with them is that the controller, backlite board and touchscreen (if it has it) are separate. On a lilliput they are normally all in one.

        I also used a linitx controller parts in a lilliput case teamed up with a lilliput screen, which was fun.

        Oh and my complete Linitx unit has gone into a lilliput case.


        So they can be taken apart and worked with. Although the transreflective may have extras on the actually screen part.

          Thats what i was thinking. From what Nexson had said it seemed like it might be specific to the transflective version. I wasn't sure of the process they use to make these screens transflective so i wasn't sure. If i can't sell the screen and go with my plan B then i'm going to try and get a new fabricator and maybe take it apart myself.

            I know at the very least, there was the Transflective light sensor, which was glued into the inside of the bezel, and very tedious to break out at such tight angles.

              I know this is an old post, by maybe usefull for those googling. The transflective and non-transflective are pratically identical other than the light sensor which is hotglued on to the bezel. As long as you take care when opening it, there's enough cable to get behind and peal the hot glue away.

              It doesn't just split apart like some, with the back of the unit on the table and the screws removed, you pull the facia up from the bottom first as the top has a couple of tabs. It doesn't require any force and should freely pull away.

              Other than that, it's actually very easy to take apart and put back together, I've done it loads of times with my own screens.

              The TS and LCD can be fiddly to get back in, I used electrical insulation tape to stick them together on the sides as it's far easier putting it in as one rather than two components. I also tape down various cables to prevent snagging when refitting.

              Photograph everything as you take it apart as it makes things a lot easier if you get stuck putting it back together.

              I can understand why Nexson decided against opening one up at the time as they were around £400 ($800)! Although now they're a little cheaper. Also Linitx can supply individual components for them but it's still not cheap.
