So I'm trying to side step screen tunnelling on my 180. All the research I've done suggests I'm on the right track.

Question is do I need to swap the inverter? Or will the 180s screen inverter work with the 180c LCD panel?

For some reason my iPad didn't include screen in the subject of this thread.

I'm trying to fit 180c colour panel inside a 180.

no, there are differences on the CPU daughter board as well as everything else. 

 

you need pretty much the whole display assembly with cable, the interconnect board, and the CPU board.

Also aren't the bezels for 165c/180c thicker and have a 4:3 cutout for the 640x480 screen (rather than 640x400)? That will be an issue there with putting a 180c screen inside a plain 180 ;)

I can get my hands on the screen bezel. I was just wondering if the cables for the grey scale screen would work with the 180c colour panel.

Then it looks like trying it in the oven and maybe keeping my eyes open for a 180c
