  • Disconnect the inverter cable by pulling its connector away from the socket on the inverter board.

  • The inverter board is a very thin and delicate circuit board that is easily broken. Use caution.

  • This connector tends to stick in its socket. It is helpful to push the connector with the tip of a spudger through the two small holes in the top of the socket while pulling the connector away from the socket.

  • Make sure to grasp the inverter cabling by the black tape and not the individual wires. Pulling the wires themselves will surely damage the inverter cable.

  • Slide the spudger to the far left and right edges to separate the inverter board from the adhesive securing it to the front bezel.

  • Remove the inverter board.
