I have only cleaned the contacts of the white cable coming from the screen, that
is attached to the StrongARM with the adhesive tape (see and only the side where the
cable is attached to the mainboard.
My hole story on sunday was, that I had the screen misalignment, tried the
businesscard trick, because it often had worked for me, but after that, my
screen didn't work anymore, only the backlight was ok. So I opened my Newton,
removed the white cable from the mainboard, attached it again and my screen
worked again (yes, without the screen misalignment)
