    Hey guys, I just plan to start a new website. This site will provide instructions how to disassemble Toshiba laptops. I already created guides for Toshiba Satellite 1415, Toshiba Satellite M35X, and Toshiba Satellite A60/A65. I'm not sure if somebody needs this kind of guides. What do you think?
    You'll find Toshiba disassembly guides at: irisvista.com

    Nice job. It is always helpful to have photos if you have never done it.

    I see you got the P25 guide up!

    Perfect timing, I just bought two P25's... one functional, one with a screen that's not working. These guides are just what I need.

    BTW... any idea how to diagnose an LCD issues? One of the units has a screen that lights up but image is scrambled and unreadable... if I hook the unit up to an external monitor it works fine.

    1. Check display cables on the system board and under the LCD.
    2. Reseat display cables connectors.
    3. Replace the display cable.
    4. If you still have the same problem, most likely your LCD is bad.
    (apparently, the system board is OK, because external monitor works fine).

    Thanks for the tips...

    I started with number 1.
    I then swapped screens between the S609 and the S509 P25's I have (because it was easier than swapping the display cable). The S609 did not work regardless of the screen so it isn't the screen. The S509 worked with both screens.
    I then swapped the display cables and I got the same thing (unfortunately).

    There must be a bad trace on the MB leading up to the display adapter connector.

    So my assumption is that the MB is bad. Which really bites. Hard.

    BTW... those guides were invaluable.

    One thing to add. On the two P25's I had removing of the screen involved removing 6 front bezel screws. There were two along the lower right and lower left hand sides of the screen on the units that I have.

    Thanks again!
