Re: new panasonic cf-51 toughbook.........in afganistan
If the satellite phone was digital at higher than normal phone line
voltage it might have fried the mainboard through the modem. You might
get lucky and on opening the unit find that the main fuse has opened and
a picofuse of 4-6 amps, fast opening, soldered across the fuse terminals
could resurect the unit. You might get this fuse from a radio
specialist, etc. Usually when this fuse opens, the laptop will still
start on battery, so I am not optimistic.
Some laptops are opened by removing a strip containing the power button,
usually the strip has a retaining screw or a small hole to insert a pin
to push a detent, then slides to the left about 3/8 inch and lifts out,
exposing the keyboard screws. Some laptops have several screws on the
bottom that release the top panel, exposing the keyboard screws.
