Trying to find parts for PowerBook 140 display Assembly

Recommended Posts

hey guys i have a powerbook that was badly damaged by a sibling and the upper screen has become damaged, The bezel and LCD itself are fine but im going to need a new EMI shield and back Cover, i may also need a LCD ribbon cable but i can solder a permanent cable in its place if i cannot find one.

I have a hole box on PB 1x0 series part's in to loft, I'll have a look at some point in the next couple of days and see if I have the parts you need

Do you have the original battery? If you do your best bet would be to re cell it, If not tbh I wouldn't worry about the battery, the 1x0 series will run just fine off just a AC adapter. The HDD is a bit more tricky as the 2.5" SCSI drives are very hard to come by, there is the SCSI2SD powerbook edition which will probably be your best bet

 

It might be the weekend before I have a chance to dig up the box of 1x0 series parts but I'll let you know once I have

Just had a look, unfortunately the only lid's I have got have broken screw mounts (I guess that's why they are spare) and I don't seem to have any LCD cables at all.

I'll have another quick look around as I am sure I had more parts than I have found but I am not hopeful that I'll find anything else
