Which replacement screen for 8520?
 
Hi there,

I have diassasembled my 8520 to replace the screen, but am not sure which new one to order. The old screen just has the following:

LMS246GF01 and I810 on one side at the bottom and blank on the other,

and the motherboard says made in hungary with a pin of 2366F53F (I think its soo small!)

So I dont know if its an 004 or an 007/011 or what. Dont want to buy the wrong one...I think its an older model, maybe 2005?

Any help appreciated, many thanks!

It is not worth it to replace the screen of a 8520. Just buy a new device.

Well I managed (hopefully) to find the right one by the shape of the connector. And its only 5 so I'll give it a go..

Thanks

The shape of the connector doesn't mean it's the right one.

Apparently is does. 004/005 with hole in corner, 007/111 diagonal strip, 010.013,014 number in middle, 009/114 number at top.



Thanks for your positivity..:-)

If it works it cheaper than replacement. Worth a try

The new screen arrived today, fitted in 5 mins and now working perfectly without buying a new device, and only 4.

Thanks, but no luck involved - just a bit of research and not loosing the tiny screws!

I've been looking for a replacement screen for a 9300. I have the same problem - no version number on the screen only LMS246GF01.
Can you give a bit more detail about the differences. Mine hasn't got a hole in the corner so it probably isn't the 004, what do you mean by "diagonal strip" and what are the numbers you mention for the 009 and 010 screens?
Also where did you purchase your replacement from?

Thanks,
