Dell Latitude 6430u Screen Replacement Repair

Hi and welcome to 365 Laptop Repair. This is a tutorial on how to do a Dell Latitude 6430u screen replacement repair. There are a few things you are going to need to complete this repair. In this tutorial we will be using tweezers, a prying tool, a philips head screwdriver, and optionally a power philips screwdriver. You will also need a replacement LCD screen that is for your laptop.

In our repair, we remove the LCD assembly from the rest of the laptop as it is easier to work on with it detached. However, it is not necessary to complete the repair.

Tools Needed: Phillips head screwdriver (optional – power screwdriver), Tweezers, Prying

Removing the old LCD screen

First you have to remove the plastic bezel surrounding the screen. The bezel is held in by clips on the inside. Insert your prying tool into the bottom of the screen between the bezel and the back case as shown in the picture below. Work your way around the edges until the bezel comes loose.

With all the screws removed it is time to remove the LCD screen from the case. Use your tweezers to gently lift up the LCD. Don’t remove the LCD completely as it is still connected by a cable on the back.

The gold LCD connector is covered by material, so use your tweezers to lift up the material. Once you can see the gold LCD connector, slide it out perpendicular to the screen to disconnect it.

With the old LCD screen now removed, prepare your new LCD for installation.

Installing your new LCD screen

Take your new LCD screen and reconnect it via the gold connector on the back. Next, put the LCD back into place and make sure it is sitting correctly. Then replace the 4 screws that attach the LCD to the back case.

Finally, retrieve the plastic bezel and situate it properly on the screen. Then run your fingers along the edges of the screen, snapping the bezel back into place as you go.

Now you can re-attach the LCD screen assembly to the rest of the the laptop if you removed it. Check out our teardown linked at the top of the post for how to do so.

With all the screws removed it is time to remove the LCD screen from the case. It is held in place by small clips around the top and sides and by adhesive along the bottom. You need to be very careful and work slowly if you don’t want to damage the screen.

Inset your prying tool into the top of the screen behind the white part of the LCD screen as shown in the first picture below. Carefully work your way prying along the top and then the sides. When you get to the bottom, slide you prying tool perpendicular under the screen and along the bottom as shown in the picture below to separate the LCD screen from the adhesive.
