    Hi All,

    I've got my CF-19 MK3 model CF-19KHRAXAE some days ago and I love it!
    Have a lot of notebooks around me but this one is different.
    It is the first notebook I own that give me the feeling it is worth to mod it.

    I need some more serial ports.
    I hate this USB-dongles hanging around the notebook like a spider.
    So I like to activate the second serial port inside, as far as I understand it should be on the dock connector with TTL levels, if I know the pins I can solder to it.
    And maybe I will also use the third serial port that is prewired for the GPS module.
    There is also some USB stuff to build inside, there seems to be some USB ports hanging around waiting for me :)

    So I'm stuck now, need the schematics...

    It would be very great to have it, I will keep you informed about my mods :)

    All the best,

    Isidro

    Because of the schematic: I know only there is an MK1 Version anywhere in the net. But it would help u, because the pinout of the ports and connectors is the same.
    But it would be easier and would also not compromise the stability of the body, if u use something like this: Syba Web . :)

    Thank you onirakkiss.

    No problem with the stability of the body, I don't want to destroy my toughbook!
    I want to fit it more closely to my application.
    No new holes or other strange things.

    I never ever need the modem, so I like to use this RJ 6P6C socket for the additional serial port. I will use an isolated RS232 driver chip, need only the RX,TX and GND wires.

    So with this I can up- and download configs and screenshots from my portable spectrum analyzer without having a potential dangerous ground loop with nothing else then a special made cable between the units.

    Hard way without the schematics.
    Good to know that also the internal connectors didn't change that much between the versions.

    Anyone out there that could help???

    I prommise I will make pictures of the specials I build.

    @Toughbook: Do you have schematics of an other version???

    All the best,

    Isidro

    I think the docking station connector is similar to the mk3. Any way I know the port replicator is compatible with the mk3.
    Whatever you can get is good. My alternative is trial and error. .. ;-)

    Hi there I saw this thread while looking for the pinout's for the cn8 and cn 17 (both video connectors on a mk2 and mk3) because im trying to fit a mk 3 screen onto a mk2 body, and the display comes out all garbled when connected like it looks like it should be, Even though the connectors are diff sizes (CN8 in this case) there are the same number of wires in both, so i was hoping that they used the same pinout just diff connectors and i guess i was wrong, i get no back light and the screen shows some very odd stuffs. Also i woulda referenced the connector numbers on the mk3 but they are not marked as happily as the mk2 is. any help will be greatly appreciated

    Are you using just the LCD panel or the whole top half?
    Full model number? Both units if possible.
    Which LCD cable are you using?

    CF-19 kdrcg6m (mk3) and i dont have the full model num from the mk2's all i have is 2x bottom half with no keyboard or bottom cover and i was attempting to use the lcd cable from the mk3 because it looked like the only difference was cosmetic (sadly i am wrong) but i have the cables from a few mk2s if you think that would be easier and i was trying to use the entire top half since there are only very minor differences in the look and fit
