The other good thing about using the classic combination, if you break something some may have a spare part lying around.   Grin

Updates:

Since there are so many versions of the 1503fp I had to open the case before ordering the FCC cables.

Removing the back stand.



After removing the screws, used a screwdriver to open the bottom tabs.



The longest time was taking off the back cover. Wasn't too sure about the tabs, but the cover ended up just lifting right off.



Taking off the controller board covers.(Drew's idea of taking the screws is pure genius. Also the photo records will help should I forget how things go back.)




Removed the controller board with the flat screw driver on the cables turn trick.



Removed the LCD screen from the front plastic case.



LCD screen removed from plastic frame.


Moment of truth. Metal backing frame removed.



Nice, it looks like its .5 pitch.





Well, now just to wait for the cable extensions to come in.

GD-1212-R                 101.00
12v Power Supply         21.00
1503fp monitor             80.00
Cable extensions            48.00
Total                          249.00

Watch out for the cable between the main board and the invertor. The plugs get very delicate and the pins that hold it in place are UNDERNEATH the damn thing.  The number of people that have broken them...

The best way is the "scalpel blade gently under the plug" way.

Hey Drew, which cable are you talking about? Have I exposed that yet? If so, can you point out which picture it is, or point to the page in your 18 steps it may be so I can avoid it.
Thanks!

Ah yes! I passed that point already, BUT, it was incredibly helpful to have read your tips on this and even how to turn the cables out with a blade otherwise I probably would have turned to force to try and get it out. Thanks!!

Ugh, I HATE it when screws strip like that.  They should all be at least hex head/screw combos, if you ask me.  That saved me when working on one of my old computers.

Nice, borrowed a dremel and got the stuck screw out.



Removed LCD from plastic casing.



After slowly removing small screws and metal tabs, the LCD is freed from the last metal piece.



Connect it all, careful not to short anything out, made sure L and R connections are right. Powered it up, got a mess of lines. Tripled checked all connections, powered on, an viola, monitor still works!



Now to open up wacom casing....
