Shattered LCD screen on Dell laptop

I have found a replacement screen for the laptop, but want to know if I can change it out myself, or if I should pay for someone else to do it...the laptop is a Dell Inspirion 6400 if that makes a difference.

Yes you can replace the screen yourself but it can be quite difficult, you have to remove the panel accross the top of the keyboard, remove the keyboard and unplugg the monitor plug and wireless ariel wires locate the screws that holds the lid to the base and unscrew, remove lid.
Now you have to unscrew the bezel (front plastic cover) the screws are located under the rubber screw covers, take care when splitting the bezel from the lid, (use a small flat head screwdriver if you have to), this will exspose the screen itself, disconnect the power plug, behind the screen you will find a ribbon cable remove this cable with great care................ job done! now you can replace the screen and put it all back together
If you think that this could be difficult for you, them i suggest a repair engineer to do the job for you but it will cost

My laptop was dropped & now the screen looks like it has been shattered. When it's off, you can't see it but turn it on & looks shattered with different colors.


Hi,
You will just have to search for a new screen. They are not that difficult to change out. The people that said under warranty send it back. Well unless you purchased accident insurance on it, a cracked lcd is not covered. LCD just doesn’t crack from sitting and they will not cover them in most cases. It is considered miss-use or abuse. Replace the screen. If you are past your warranty, check eBay. Sometimes you can get a used screen for cheap. If you do that try to get it in the whole lid assembly, they are easier to replace that way. Check out the website for screens: http://www.screentekinc.com/

Have a broken lcd for a dell inspirion 1500 help!!!!!!


Is your laptop under warranty/extended warranty for accidental damage? If it is inquire from Dell about the procedure to send it to them and getting it fixed click here to get the contact info. If its not under warranty you can inquire Dell for your area dealer/repair shop to get the LCD replaced.
You can also get an estimate for replacing the LCD screen from your local area repair shop to have an idea. In most cases I have seen the technical job performed by the manufacturer is far more superior (Please do not take me wrong, its my experience).
Sorry could not be of much help then to guide you to a right path.
Hope that helped!

Screen was shattered


notebooks like toshiba's are hardware and software specific. Other hardwares will work but not guaranteed to provide full and satisfying results. Drivers may fix the problem. But I suggest you get a orginal Toshiba LCD

Hp pavilion dv 1000 screen replacment


Dear lotaman, I have searched the world to find an exact guide for your monitor but it is impossible. Neveretheless I have found the following guides and they should be more than enough to complete the task in hand anytime.

TIP: The ZV5000 looks and is very similar to the HP DV1000 screen so I would start from there. All guides are very nicely explained.

Please remember to remove the battery before you do any work with the laptop.

LCD PROBLEM


if you can get hold of a second Dell Lappy (same model) which is broken (not broken screen) you can swap the broken screen for the good one. It means opening the laptop, but due to the smashed screen the warranty is invalid anyway. There is usually 1 or 2 cables coming from the screen 1 for signal and 1 for power. you can explore the broken lappy to see how the screen connects,
