  • Fix broken TD-12 Kit , broken mount & limping screen

    Hello guys

    Now I finally got an used TD-12 kit I had been expecting for decade at dirt-cheap price.

    But it was in a very poor condition with broken mounts and limping screen.

    All right, let's fix it DIY.


    At first, I thought it's easy to take the screen out from the front. I got fooled.
    You could try the same way to have fun.

    There is no getting away to strip her from the bottom piece by piece.

    She also gets buttons on both sides. Take them off gently, please.

    Remove all inside connectors carefully.

    FFC (Flex Flat Cable) are very delicate. deassemble them with nothing but skill.

    Now you can see the target, screen module.

    Replace all suspect capacitors. All 4 capacitors cost only TWD 20 (= USD 0.6)



    Warning: It's super hard to replace capacitors. Find a skillful technician for help.

    I love that you managed to fix the screen rather than just replace it. Also, cable ties can fix anything that duct tape cannot!
