Thank you for that addition. I had that all typed out in a post I tried to do earlier (don't know if it was a mod or my browser on my desktop glitching with this forum), but since it didn't post, I didn't feel like retyping it (nearly didn't post the pictures due to attitudes of some in the thread).
Also, there are three screws on each side, 6 screws in the top, and 6 screws in the bottom (4 are easy to see, two screws are recessed). Then you have 4 screws by where the adapter connections are (HDMI ports, etc.) and one screw under where the power plugs in that will need unscrewed.
Because I didn't want to struggle too hard with the connection mid-cable to disconnect it heading to the power/volume/input buttons (I've pulled cables out of connectors before = no fun!), I used the push tab to release the connector to the mainboard. This connector is the empty one in that picture underneath the one for the sound cables, but above the thin ribbon cable at the bottom left of the mainboard.
That will get you in. The other pictures are the white stickers needed to find the parts numbers for the different components.
I found it interesting my T-Con board has a different number than what is listed on some sites for the T-Con board. But, I also have the LTMWTNAS variant, which is separate and the mainboard and other components need verified for that reason (which everyone should verify the parts they need so as not to waste time, money, or restocking fees anyways).
In any case, should be able to purchase the parts tomorrow and will continue the description on how to switch out the parts and test the system as I am able to get to that.
Best regards, good sir.
