I'm not entirely familiar with Toshiba, but check the display hinge, sometimes that needs to be pried off with a screwdriver first before it will come apart.
Basically, just look for anything that can be pried off without breaking.

My toshiba satellite a215-s7472 screen is very dim can hardly see anything what do I do too fix it I tried ajusting the light .


Primer:

An LCD screen does not produce light by itself. It needs an additional light source.
A Backlight is the additional light source.

A Backlight can be a CCFL, or a series of LED lights.
(Two present technologies being used)

The Toshiba Satellite A215-S7472 Notebook PC uses a CCFL.

A CCFL is a Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp.
Similar to Fluorescent lighting used in homes, and businesses, but on a MUCH smaller scale.

(Average size is 2mm by 334mm. In inches that is;
Approximately a little thicker than 1/16th of an inch Thick, and a little over 13 inches Long)

A screen Inverter is used to convert the power (Electricity) from the laptop, for the Backlight, and LCD screen.

Point of all this?

90 PERCENT OF THE TIME the fault is a bad Inverter

http://www.zkarlo.com/selected-zkarlo-part/inverter-board-p907.php

HOWEVER, the Backlight bulb is located inside the Screen Frame, of the LCD display assembly.

An LCD screen is composed of layers. These layers are held in a specific pattern, by the LCD screen frame.

This is a thin metal frame which surrounds the LCD screen layers, and has Philips head screws which hold the frame together.

NOTE*
The procedure is fairly intricate.

[ So far I have only seen listings for the LCD screen itself, and not a separate CCFL Backlight ]

This is a link to a free Service Manual, detailing disassembly,

http://www.tim.id.au/blog/tims-laptop-service-manuals/#toc-toshiba

Go to the 11th line down. The one that starts with Satellite A10
Go across and click on A215

This is a PDF file. It may take up to 30 seconds before you see the first page, and additional time to fully download.
Suggest you let the file download all the way before looking through it.

1) Remove ALL power to the laptop. Remove the AC adapter (Charger) and Battery

2) Observe Anti-Static Precautions
Suggest you bu and wear an ESD wrist strap, and connect the alligator clip to a good ground source.
Average price is around $3 to $6.

3) Use a multi-compartment container for the various screws you will remove.
Mark each compartment for the area the screws come out of.
There may be as many as 60 screws and 12 different types.
Do Not mix them up.

(You can use a clean egg carton in a pinch. Mark each egg holder)

How to change dvd drive in toshiba satellite a215 s4807.


Flip the laptop over and look for a screw about 4" in from the face of the drive. somewhere towards the middle of the face. Pull this screw, eject the tray and give a sharp tug to the tray and it should slide out. If it doesn't do not continue to force it.
