    What model of laptop do you have? This is even assuming it'll look or work well after you take it apart and dry it out.

If you want to get the water out you take a chance of destroying the screen. You can take the screen apart but if its in the lcd portion of the screen and not the plastic surrounding it, I would have to say that damage is almost certain. You could look at it this way, if you damage it you probably would have had to get another anyways so heres how to do it. Each model and brand has a different way of getting certain parts off of the laptop so I am going to give you the basics and if you pay attention to what your doing you should be able to get the laptop apart without damage. Unplug your laptop and remove the battery. You should remove the strip of plastic between the keyboard and the LCD lid. Sometimes theres screws that hold this to the computer and sometimes they dont. Once you have the plastic trim removed you shoulld be able to see the Video cable going from the mainboard to the LCD lid. Unplug the cable from the mainboard. If you have WIFI in your laptop there will be 2 wires that go to the wifi card. You should be able to get the LCD out without unplugging these wires and having to rerout the cables when you put it back together. You will need some small Philips screwdrivers. Take the stick on tabs off of the plastic bezel in the screen side of the LCD lid to reveal the bezel screws. Take the screws out and carefully pull the bezel off. There are normally tabs that keep the bezel on as well as the screws. Once the bezel is off then you can get to the screws that hold the LCD in the back cover. You will need to carefully remove the wires from the inverter (normally at the bottom of the LCD) since you dont need to take the inverter off of the LCD back cover most of the time. Once you have the LCD out you can take the tiny screws out of the edges of the LCD. You also should unplug the Video cable from the back of the LCD. Now the only thing holding the layers of the LCD together is some tape. Sometimes its an aluminum tape. and sometimes not but remove the tape from 3 sides leaving the side where the wires are taped. Split the frame apart and you will find that you can get to the different layers of display material. DO NOT PULL THEM OUT! Just lift the layers you have to and wipe clean then blow with compressed air to remove dust. Any dust may show when its put back together. Note: Be carefull because the LCD bulb is located in this area. This is the light that lights up the LCD. If it breaks you will have to buy another LCD. Reverse the process to get the LCD back together and see how it works. I have done what you are asking about to change bad bulbs before. At least the LCD should look better and the worst that could happen is you make the LCD not work and you have to go to ebay and get another. Good luck.

Hi, I have hp pavilion dv2500 laptop. I have display problem.pls help how to rectify it. If i connect exteranl CRT monitor Display is coming . Pls tell me how to disassemble the laptop.


You might have either a faulty LCD cable or screen inverter board.
The LCD cable transfers data signal from the motherboard & video card to the LCD screen. It also supplies high voltage DC power to the screen inverter board. The screen inverter board works as a power supply for the backlight lamp mounted inside the LCD screen. It converts low voltage DC power to high voltage AC power needed for the backlight lamp.

In this service manual, you will find an illustration of how to disassemble the laptop & replace either the LCD cable or screen inverter board:

Hello sir i need help i have problem woth my screen monitor my laptop axtensa 4620 z i try to clearn the screen . then went i turn is on the screen is black


Sorry you are having trouble. To help you I will need more info. What did you clean it with? When did this happen? Try this turn it upside down and see if any water or liquid comes out. My guess is that there is water or other liquid inside. This might require a trip to the shop to remove the liquid.

Where is the filter to clean so that water fills faster and not at a trickle/ thank you


The filter is actually a screen that is located inside of the water valve on the back of the washing machine. Pull the machine out and where the water lines are hooked up there is a blue water valve (most are blue some are a grayish color) Remove your waterlines and look inside of this valve and you should see the screen or a lot of debris. Take a pair of needlenosed pliers and remove the screens clean them and reinstall. If no screens are visable then you may need to change out the water valve which is simple (you will see what I mean when you remove the water lines) If you need a new valve one can be purchased at an appliance parts house for around 20 usd depnding on the type of valve it is.

Good luck on your repairs hope this helped you

My washer works great but takes forever to fill, I have A good water supply line, is there A pump in the washer? or could something inside the washer be plugged???


Hello Friend, Your problem is simple. Your water inlet valve screen is clogged preventing the water from flowing at maximum pressure. here's what you do: just remove the water supply hoses at back of washer and look inside the hot and cold inlet openings that you just removed the water hoses from. You should see a filter screen in each of them. remove the screens, clean them or just replace with new screens. Also check each end of water supply hoses for the same type of filter screen and clean or replace them as well. Happy to help, Tim.

Black water flow mark on monitor screen of the Lenovo Laptop 3000 C100 series


You would have to disassemble the screen in order to clean it. There are layers in the front of the screen, what you see is where the liquid got in between the layers. Screens can be taken apart, but it's not recommended.
