Leap Frog 48 Main Screen Broken

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am setting up an old workhorse (Leap Frog 48). The only problem I have is that I am missing the main screen (The screen between the setup and record buttons). I've tried to contact my local authorized resellers for spare parts and I can't get a hold of them. It has been 6 months and I haven't heard anything from them. Can I purchase the screen from you?

Thanks in advance!

If you're suitably competent, maybe worth opening the desk up an checking for loose ribbon cables. Maybe Edward can consult the mechanical drawings and advise if this screen is directly soldered or if there is a candidate cable of some sort.

Also the minimal set of screws to remove to gain access. On Fat Frog for instance (similar case design) it is just one per side, the lower one to the rear of the side panels.

From memory the LCD is directly on the PCB so no usual suspects of ribbon cables.

I think Edward is correct - been a while since I had to swap out this particular PCB - might be worth checking the pins for the LCD for dry joints, they can happen and cause weirdness.

If that's no good then it will have to be a new PCB - I can supply the PCB (though not from stock sadly) if that helps you? My Profile has my website address - I would expect the PCB's to be 7-10 working days to stock but I can check this if you want to order from me.
