Very Carefully! ... jk lol

1. You'll want to begin by removing the top plate cover of YOUR laptop/notebook illustration below.

my screen has cracked and - 8614b71.jpg
2. keep trac of every screw or **** or metal item you remove

3. You'll next want to detach the display ribbon cable , this is just an example

4. finaly you'll want to remove any OTHER ribbon cables , exampe below.


5. now for the tricky parts , you'll need to make sure you DO NOT PRY anything open
keep searching for hidden screws that may be located underneith plastic covers
that parts very tricky because sometimes they disguise them very well

6. once you find the screws to remove the face plate , illustrated below you'll be able to install your
new display screen without any farther assistance.

you do not need to remove the metal rods that hold the display in place , you just want to remove the face plate like this example my screen has cracked and - d298892.jpg>

Samsung tv cracked screen

Hello Sam, it would cost more to replace the screen than you can purchase a new set for. Beside that the new set will have many updates if your set is over 3 years old. p.s. If you have little ones, you may want to have a piece of lexan cut to fit the front of your new set and attach it with 4 pieces of velcro in the corners to protect the new screen. Then if you want you can remove it for "movie night's" or whatever. the $50 to $65 it would cost is a lot cheaper than a new tv.....tks Terry

Broken laptop screen

There is nothing more frustrating than a broken laptop screen. Whether you have dropped your laptop or stepped on it,once the screen is cracked it has to be replaced. Having the screen repaired may cost you almost as much as a new laptop. Purchasing a new screen from the manufacturer can also be expensive. Taking the time to look online at computer message boards or resellers can help you to find a reasonably priced screen. By following a few easy steps, you can replace your cracked screen and have a functioning laptop in an afternoon.

Determine what model laptop screen will fit your laptop. Ordering a screen directly from the manufacturer can be almost as expensive as buying a new laptop. Look at online computer message boards, auction sites and retailers to find less expensive options. Disconnect any power source, including the battery pack, from your laptop before you begin. Locate and remove the four to six screws that hold the bezel, or plastic frame cover, in place. The screws sometimes have small plastic or rubber covers over them. Pull the plastic bezel away from the screen cautiously, working around the edge. Some bezels snap in and out of place. A small flat-head screwdriver may be helpful in prying the edge of the bezel away from the screen. Pull the screen forward gently. You will find two main wires behind it. The ribbon-like wire, or video cable, is usually taped in place. Remove the tape and disconnect the video cable from your broken screen. Remove the broken screen from its metal frame. Connect the new screen to the video cable and pop it into the metal frame. Replace the tape, plastic frame and screws. Power up your computer and test your new screen. Hope this helps.

    Plastic box of wires to big for my new cd player after taking my old cassette player out

    You wll need a stereo installation adapter kit. This will change the dash opening to the size you need, oftentimes by replacing an entire dash panel for a factory look.

    Here is a link to the dash kit for your car at Best Buy. These will come with detailed instructions. Let me know if this helps :)
