In which we get to the silicon.
Undo a bunch more screws and hereís the guts of it.
The main board is connected to the screen driver board via a short
20 way cable. This just pulls out easily.
The cable to the inverter board is a more tricky and doesnít
come out with a fingernail. A previous (slightly disastrous) experience has taught me that
the locking nubs are sometimes underneath the cable, tight up against the board.
They are easy to shift with a little gentle teasing with a scalpel blade between the plug and socket.
Insert the blade and roll the plug out, It doesnít take any pressure to pop the blighter.
So thatís the rear boards out of the way, four more screws and the middle
cover lifts off. The mesh covered foam blocks are glued to the cover and the screen casing to
earth everything. The glue pulls off with some resistance, slightly worrying in case there might be
an unseen cable getting pulled, so I take it very slowly and keep looking out for trouble but no worries,
it is just the mesh after all.
So this is the moment of truth, the first point where I get to see how easy this
might be to shoehorn the screen into the Wacom case, but in a classic serial cliffhanger ending Iím off for
a week so youíre going to have to wait to find out.
