    It’s not necessary to remove the cables. Unclip the white touch cable from the touch board as shown in step 8, then remove the two screws holding the board to the frame, as shown in step 9. The board can then be moved out of the way to lay flat on your work surface without having to disconnect all the cables. Doing this eliminates this step and step 5. The order of operations then would be steps 1-3, 8, 9, 6, 7, and 10.

My unit is missing the right foot stand. Is there anywhere else I can find the model number. Need to purchase a new power supply?
