In this guide I explain how to take apart the display panel and replace the inverter board in HP Compaq 8510p and 8510w notebooks.
The inverter board located inside the display panel below the LCD panel.
The inverter works as a power supply for the backlight lamp inside the LCD.
When inverter fails, the LCD goes dark. The image is still on the screen but you can barely see it.
OK, let’s start taking it apart.
There are two rubber covers in the lower left and right corners of the display bezel.
You can remove these covers with a sharp object.
