Display

Sharp LM64183P

Backlight of the display is based on CCFL (Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp). The lamp replacement can be still purchased, the suitable size is 165mm x 2.0mm. It is best to solder the original wires directly to the lamp and use the original rubber insulating caps.

If display cover hinges are broken, it is possible to glue the hinge directly to the cover and screw it to the base. It is easier to do it with the right hinge, where there is no ribbon cable.

Display and Keyboard Adapter Board

This board is a home to the clock backup battery. The battery is likely to leak and destroy the traces on the board. The computer will start correctly without the battery, but it will not preserve time and date.
