MV-8800 Dust Under Display

Postby wd8dkyy » 19:32, 30 December 2015

Hello. Has anyone disassembled their 8800 to clean dust out from under the glass? I just picked one up, and there is quite a bit of dust in there.

I searched around for a service manual, and on YouTube, with no luck.

Thank you!

I haven´t fully disassembled my MV yet, but from what I´ve seen/read it must be a PITA.

If you do it be sure to take a lot of photos, otherwise you might not be able to put it back together properly.

If I remember it's only the 2 external screws to remove the top screen cover and blow out the dust/debris from the main screen. Use a soft cloth to wipe the screen.

I´ve done it the other day...it´s doable, but it´s a bit more work than just removing the two screws holding the screen cover.

I spring cleaned both 8800's today and they look great! Thanks again to Soul One for the pics! Vielen Dank!
Definitely use a microfiber cloth that you use to clean eye glasses or a camera lense. I tried using a clean white t-shirt rag and the screen looked smeared after I was done.
