Remove screen on Toshiba Satellite 2450


My Toshiba Satellite 2450's screen is dying (i.e., the light intensity flickers and then it goes black). For the past few months, I have noticed that the screen has become loose and the grey speaker case on the lefthand side is higher than the the one on the righthand side.

I would like to remove the screen to see if there is a loose connection somewhere. Could you please advise me on the best way to do this?

    Thanks for the link/guide. Unfortunately, I don't think the screen's securing strip comes off in quite the same way. I'm attaching a photo of what it looks like with the securing strip off.

    Thanks for your help.

    Once again thanks. I used your link as a base to find a computer model closer to the one I have and so used the following link to remove the screen:

    What I discovered in the end was that one of the hinges was entirely broken. Will need to find a replacement hinge (bracket). Any ideas on this?

    Here is a pic of my hinge break:

    Unfortunately, because of the break I have been unable to pursue the display issue. All of the connectors were secure as far as I could tell from simple inspection. Ideally, I would like to test the screen now that I have taken it all apart. However I would need to reassemble the entire computer, and without the hinge's bracket (which is broken) I am uneasy to do so. The flip side is that if the screen problem is not simply resolved, purchasing a new hinge may not be worthwhile in the long run.

    After much careful re-assembly, I put the laptop back together again, but the screen's problem persists (blank).

It appears the hinge has come loose and possibly the video and/or inverter connection. Here as a disassembly guide for a different model, I'm sure how similar it is:
Be sure to remove the battery and check the bottom of the laptop for any screws that may secure the cover.

    Oh, I see. From what I can see, at this point you still do not have access to the display connector or the hinges. Can you tell if the speaker enclosures are removeable individually or if they are part of the entire palmrest assembly?

  • Curtis Richner Dec 06, 2008

    It's good you found the problem before it got worse. I'd look for refurbished parts possibly on ebay.

    Were you able to find the cause of the display issue.

I had a similar problem and I had to "Delete Volume" when in DIsk Management. I then had a choice to "Create Simple Volume" which I did, and then a wizard created the correct partitions and assigned a drive letter to my external drive. Everything was them OK.

Freezes on the warm boot screen MC9000

This can be for a number of reasons.

First thing would be to try and cold boot the device:-

Remove battery half way, hold power button and trigger, push battery in fully until click and then release power and trigger

If that fails next thing would be to try and re-flash the operating system. This is done by using an SD card and loading the latest operating files onto it. The SD card slot is located under the keypad. A cross head screwdriver is required to remove the keypad. Search on symbol software download site for the latest. The download also has a readme with detailed instructions. Once the files are on perform a cold boot.

Remove battery half way, hold power button and trigger, push battery in fully until click and then release power and trigger. Drop the terminal in a cradle so that it runs on external power.

Hope this helps.

If you need any more help then please do not hesitate to contact us:-
