Looking for AWW1353 board to perform swap on 5020 panel. Tried contacting Jano18 but was unsuccessful. Anyone have one, or know where I can find this board? Thanks.

Hi, do you still have any modified boards for sale? Do you offer a mod service for the AWW1352?

"how to"

I just purchased an IO assembly board from ShopJimmy, and in a few days my 5020 should become an E-Lite. Hooray!

The problem I'm having now is I can't seem to locate the actual instructions for how to perform the swap. You know, a step-by-step guide with lots of pictures so that I don't destroy my panel. I have tried the links from post #1 in this thread, but they don't seem to work. I would appreciate it greatly if a forum member could provide a link, or point me in the right direction. Thanks all.

I just have the PDF file which is already in the first post, I suggest getting a 5020FD service manual (not sure if I'm allowed to share that here or not, but it can easily be found through google), it's even more detailed when it comes to how to disassemble the panel properly.

thanks

Wow! Ask and you shall receive! Thanks guys for the uber-quick replies.

I made a rookie mistake and overlooked the "rundown" link initially but see it now. Looks like a simple process according to the pictures, but feel free to share any tips/tricks from your own experiences which may help things go more smoothly.

I may also just have the PDF in the first link however i never actually got around to doing the swap because i went projector

Now my 5020 is regulated as a "backup" in case the projector breaks.

Success

Received the board yesterday and installed last night. Very easy but time consuming as there are many small screws which need to be removed. Other than dropping said screws repeatedly, I didn't encounter any problems. TV behaves normally, and I now have access to pure picture mode and pro adjustments.

I found the part from ShopJimmy.com and recommend others looks there as well. It took a couple months on the waiting list but payed off in the end. Thanks fellow AVS members for all your help.
