TIPS: Remembering how all the parts fit back together when hacking your electronics.
I learned this tip from the day I open the Lilliput shipment from the post man.
After so many people having problem putting the ribbon cable back when crack open their Lilliputs, their Lilliput screw up (no power, blank, dead.)
Digital camera is your best friend. Cellphone camera too, not so good quality but better than nothing.
- When you crack open that expensive screen, take snapshot of all screws and where they are suppose to be. Snapshot all connector before and after you unplug it
_ The same tips apply to cracking open the car dashboard/console. If you unsure, snapshot where each screws/bolts/nuts are. Car connectors is a one way fit only. There are no 2 identical connector in the same area. This is what my Toyotas are. Other makers probably do the same. But to be sure yourself, take a snapshot of any connector before unplug.
You will never know when you need those pictures.
Ever visit a car garage? And wonder why the shop have soooo MANY nuts/bolts/screw laying around the corner? Because they can't remember where the **** each screws/nuts/bolts are and end up with a few extra in hand and they just tossed in that corner.
I took snapshot of all steps when I crack open my Lilliput and has 0 (ZERO) problem with when re-assemble it together while others are crying WTF wrong with my screen.
