Asking for tech. help to fix a Toshiba Satellite P15-S470
I am a Romanian citizen having a Toshiba Satellite P15-S470 laptop, Serial Number 14338165K.
Firstly, about one year ago I got the LCD screen not working. Initially it was working properly but one day I have to leave the room for few minutes and when I came back the screen was black.
I started the laptop and I noticed that when the power was on the LCD screen was white with some vertical shadow lines (very sine lines). I noticed that a slight burning smell was issued by laptop.
I was told by the technicians from SCOP Computers in Bucharest (the only one dealer of Toshiba in Romania) that the screen is out of order and it has to be replaced.
I bought through eBay a new LCD screen (Chunghwa - CLAA154WA01AQ) replacing the old one. The result was negative. Than I was told that the video cable might be the problem and I was advised to buy another video cable. I bought another video cable compatible with the original one but the screen is still white, without any vertical or horizontal lines (so the LCD seams to be in good condition).
In the end I was told by the technician that it is a motherboard problem and I have to buy a new one or to find some one to repair it.
Can you assist me to sort out this problem, to repair my laptop?
I would like to remove the motherboard but I do not know how to do it.
