Acer travelmate 4202 middle cover disassembly

Hi,
I need to change the lcd - mobo cable on my laptop, an acer travelmate 4202 but I don't know how can I take off the cover where the hd light is and where all the other buttons are, (the one close to the lid). Are there any screws or do I have just to pull it out? I have tried to do so but it won't come off.
thank you very much

Acer travelmate 5520 will not switch on when powered by battery or ac


1. Test power adapter for output voltage. Bend the power cable in various directions while doing this to be sure that there is no broken conductors in the cable.
2. If power adapter is Ok, connect it & see if the power LED on the laptop will glow when you jiggle the power connector in various directions. If yes, then the DC jack might be loose or damaged, & need to be either re-soldered or replaced.
3. If not, then disassemble the laptop. Remove any components that attach to the laptop's motherboard first (e.g. battery, hard drive, RAM, wireless card, optical drive, ... etc.)
4. Next, remove the keyboard & the LCD screen.
5. Finally, unscrew all screws that hold the upper cover & lower cover together so that you could gain access to the motherboard.
6. Inspect the solder points connecting the DC jack to the motherboard. Make sure that none of them is loose. If any, re-solder them.
7. Inspect the center pin in the DC jack. Make sure that it is not broken or loose. If it is, then you might need to replace the DC jack.
8. When you are done, re-assemble back the laptop.

This guide is to provide some help for those who want to disassemble their laptop.
You have to be sure that the problem you face is from the hardware, and that your laptop is not under warranty, since that laptop disassembly void warranty.
Search on the net for service manuals some are free and other cost around 6$ . Not find your model ? download some free service manual from different brands and read them many steps are the same in laptop disassembly. But i do recommended to find the manual that fit your laptop because you may need to know the part number of the defective part to change it.
Now you have to prepare a clean working area with small box for the different parts and their screws, and maybe a pen and a paper to remember particular step.
To disassemble the computer, you need the tools below:
Wrist ground strap and conductive mat for preventing electrostatic discharge
Small Phillips screw driver
Flat head screw driver
Hexagonal driver
Tweezers
NOTE : The screws for the different components vary in size. During the disassembly process, group the screws with the corresponding components to avoid mismatch when putting back the components.
When you remove the stripe cover, please be careful not to scrape the cover.
In most of laptop you can actually access by the base to these bays :
battery
memory
hard disk
Remove them all, to remove the optical disk just release the screw securing the optical disk module,push the ODD module using a screwdriver and remove the ODD module from the main unit.
After that look on the keyboard area to find how to remove the keyboard for example with an Acer aspire 5100, you have to remove the middle cover from the edge of the middle cover and carefully detach the middle cover, then you just have to release the two screws securing the keyboard plate and carefully detach the keyboard plate from the edge of the keyboard plate finish by release the keyboard FFC lock carefully because it is fragile. Then remove the keyboard plate.
After that you can either disassembly the lcd module or try to access the motherboard.
For the LCD module carefully disconnect the LCD cable and any other cable that you can see, release any screws holding the LCD module on the bottom side of the main unit, release any other screws securing the LCD hinges on the main unit, then detach the LCD module from the main unit.
For the motherboard every model are different then you have to explore by yourself, but not forget to read some service manuals before.
You can find some free service manuals at laptop support.
I hope that this will give some help.
Didier Pradel is the webmaster of laptop support where you can find many useful informations, and help for your lovely laptop.

White screen on Acer Travelmate 7720


most likely you have a faulty LCD screen, the only option u have is to replaced it or u can use a external LCD screen to act as screen for your laptop. you'll be needing a VGA cable to connect your laptop to any LCD screen available.

Display flickers on acer travelmate 2410


so, did the new inverter fix the problem? and, when you were replacing the inverter, did you get to peek at the screen? ok ok, I'll make it easier than that. take your model number and search for "Acer 2410 LCD" on eBay, there are a lot of screens and none of them show a video cable that is glued or soldered to the screen. there are, in fact, a few video cables there as well, so my guess is that they are flat out lying to because 1) to get you to pay too much for repairs 2) because the person at tech support has no idea 3) they are sold together according to their parts list or 4) they really DO go together. My guess is that what they are talking about is a completely new LCD panel INSIDE a lid case with the hinges and bezel and all that. So SURE it's going to look like the cable is included, but if you just pop the back off the lid, it's probably about 10 minutes of work to replace the LCD without replacing the cable. I have to provide 2 caveats to this:

1) Acer is NOTORIOUS for glue. they love the stuff and may well have glued everything together inside the screen case.

2) I have no real experience with this specific model so I'm not sure.

It's just that every other screen ever is pretty much made of the same parts: an LCD screen with a backlight cable and a video input socket, an inverter if it's in the screen, mic, video camera, light, etc if they are in the screen, frame, back of case, and a video cable that goes from the video socket out to the mobo.

IS the display light flickering or the display image? that's important too. Good luck. it's my guess that it's either a bad connection a bad CCFL or was a bad inverter. the cables may have gotten pinched and that could be it too.

White screen


This could be caused for a number of reasons. First thing to determine is if the computer is bad or just the screen. Hook up a external monitor to the laptop and turn it on and use the FN key to turn on the external monitor port. If the computer is running fine with the external monitor then you have a bad LCD or LCD inverter. which is replacable but expensive.. you would want to look at getting a new laptop or using it with the external monitor.
