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 top of the screen between the bezel and the case as shown in the picture below. Work your way around the edges until the bezel comes loose.
Using your prying tool to remove the bezel
Once the bezel is removed, disconnect the cable near the left hinge and the cable near the middle as shown in the pictures below.
After disconnecting the cables from the screen, remove the foil around the screen and on the inverter circuit board at the bottom of the screen as it can get in the way of removing the screen.
Once the foil is removed, take out the two screws holding down the inverter board and the 6 screws holding in the screen hinges as shown in the pictures below.
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.
Gently prying the screen free from the case
Once the bottom adhesive has been separated, the screen should come right out. Get your new screen out and prepare to put it back together.
Installing your new LCD screen
Place your new LCD screen into the case and snap it into place making sure it is fitting correctly. Next, replace the hinges and their 6 screws. Then replace the 2 screws that hold down the inverter board. Take the foil you removed and put it back into place around the screen. After that, reconnect the cable on the left next to the hinge and then the connector in the middle making sure the cable runs on top of the foil.
Next, retrieve the plastic bezel and situate it properly on the screen. Finally, run your hands 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. Check out our teardown linked at the top of the post for how to do so.
