    I just bought a 52 Mk3 on my local adverts site on the cheap, except the screen's dead and missing.

    Can I buy a complete display on eBay from any 52 and be done with it?

    No..A CF 52 uses a totally different LCD panel.

    That motherboard may be bad.
    CF 53's have a lot of video issues.

    Ok..
    The CF52 uses several different panels.
    It has 2 different resolution possibilites.

    The mk3 "may" use led backlites on the low resolution and CCFL backlite on the high resolution panel. I can't recall at the moment if mk3 or mk4 is when they started using led's

    Post the full model number please.

    Must've been from a Configured to Order model I guess.

    That said, I cannot find if it's a WUXGA model or not.

    Connect it to an external monitor and post a photo of the main BIOS page.

    52R is a Mk3, it will either have a led 1280 screen or a wuxga ccfl 1900 screen, should have a label saying i3 or i5 also, but I would like to see the bios screen. Do you have the rest of the parts or a empty shell on top, I have a few new screen bezels.

    It appears to be a UK model CF-52Mk3 standard with a wxga screen, it lists drivers on the Panasonic US site, but UK english only and a standard video driver , not a Nvidia.

    I'm thinking whether I should find a lid or just sell it on for what I paid for it.. decisions, they suck!
