 How do I get at that cable?

   It's at the connector CON6001 you can see at the top right here:
https://people.openmoko.org/tony_tu/GTA02/hardware/GTA02/A5/gta02a5_pcba_cs.JPG

https://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/Disassembling_Neo_1973

   To pop the PCB out of the back cover, I hold the Neo above a towel with
the screen facing downwards and I use the fingertips of my second, third and
fourth fingers to pull the sides of the case away from the PCB. Optionally
help it a little with a thumb through SIM/SD card hole in the back cover.

   The cable is covered by some sort of flexible shield.

Well, we've determined in IRC that the LCD is cracked and not fixable
without replacing it, and I don't want to put that much more money into it.
:( I'm hoping to sell it for a little something.

2009-08-30 Thread The Digital Pioneer
My FR's screen has given out. It now just shows all white with vertical
lines of various colors. Pressing the screen or hitting it can change the
pattern/color of lines. It sounds like brute-force trauma to the screen, but
it was working fine this morning and I haven't done anything cruel to it
since then... I've rebooted, and hard-reset it. No good.

Any ideas? Is it dead?

Nope, screen is totally useless at all times, and as near as I can tell the
computer works just fine. Just no screen.

Not sure what you mean by that, but the phone boots just fine. It even
blanks the screen and turns it on when I touch it, it just doesn't show
anything useful on it. I can connect it and ping it and SSH into it and play
music from it. The screen just doesn't work. All white with some vertical
colored lines.

Have a look at www.pulster.eu He has an offer for a display repair service.

$127 + shipping, and I don't even get a buzzfix out of the mix? :\ Doesn't
really sound worth it.

   With a bit of luck, it is just the cable that has become loose.

I don't see how it can be _broken_ as it was working until it magically
stopped, and I know I didn't hit it when it stopped... Though I did hit it a
few times afterwards, but not hard enough to break it. I hope.

How do I get at that cable?
