[ltp] Request for more info on LCD-b0rked 600E

A few weeks back, I mentioned a ThinkPad 600E whose display turned red and
then hardly visible. I checked that the video board isn't the problem by
connecting to an external monitor, which works just fine.
His seller refuses to address the problem.
I understand there to be two easy things I can do to fix it:
* Reseat the LCD screen; hope that fixes it.
* Test if it's the inverter; if so, replace it.
Someone mentioned the 600E maintenance manual. Is that available online
as a PDF, for example?
How do I reseat the LCD? I have no idea even where to poke what
screwdrivers to open the chassis.
Secondly, how should I test if the problem is the inverter without first
buying the replacement?
Thanks so much,
... and furthermore ... I don't like your trousers.
