I'm repairing my Dell Studio 1537 and I've noticed that the wires coming out of the screen and which connect to the inverter have silver steaks down one side which I presume is the wire showing through the plastic.
How dangerous is this? If I were to touch one of the bare wires would I get a bad shock? Also, if there wires are safetly inside the case, could they short and blow anything up or set fire to anything?
Thanks for your reply. Yes I broke an earlier display cable by bending and tugging on it a lot. But I'm not talking about the thick display cable, I'm talking about the thin wires that come out of the screen and plug into the inverter. I'm under the assumption that those wires carry high voltage which has been ramped up by the inverter.
