I have to replace the lcd screen on this laptop, (part # PSL 2ZE). I can't find disassembly manuals anywhere. Is there a step by step guide for this?

Thanks!

    EL Geek. Thanks for that. I'll take photos and make copious notes. All the best.

    1 other thing, Do you think this is something someone with a mid-level hardware knowledge could undertake to replace, or should I steer clear? Also, do I need any glues for holding the lcd in place?



    Thanks.

    Thanks for asking. I got an offer of a replacement laptop, so I took it. The old one's gone off to laptop heaven. Thanks for the pointers though.



    All the best.

I can testify that you will have an incredibly hard time finding a step by step guide on how to change a laptop screen. My best advice would be to get a digital camera and take pictures, pictures and more pictures. Work slowly and methodically and takes notes, particularly on where you disconnect color coded cables. I have changed screens on numerous brand and models and I can tell you, they have never been the same. Good luck.

    Anyone with mid-level experience should know enough to be careful. I know that the laptops are not only held by screws, but by little plastic latches that can break easily. Picture two interlocking "L"''s, and if you lift up incorrectly the shorter part of the "L" will break and no longer hook onto the other "L" when you put it back together. I can only stress to be careful and think forward. I normally charge $200 plus the cost of the parts and it takes me just less of an hour, less time if I have done that particular model before (because I have my notes and pictures). Good luck.

Acer 4745g black screen problem


So, if you can hear startup sound then motherboard, RAM and HDD is OK! Try to connect it with external monitor, if it's working on it, then problem in LCD, LCD light or LCD cable. If not working with external monitor then it is video card problem, if card is integrated then you need to reball or change at all south bridge on the motherboard, if video is as module card then just replace it with compatible one.
If LCD cable - disassemble laptop to get LCD cable and test each wire with any multimetr with sound beep and replace it if needed.
If LCD light - try to take LCD screen under good lamp then power on laptop and carefully look to dark screen if you see very dark Windows boot screen then you need to disassemble LCD housing, disassemble LCD, remove and replace LCD lamp with working one.
If all this cant help, then you need to replace LCD at all.

G60-235dx laptop Remote monitor works fine. screen on laptop only shows slim verticle color lines and bars.Is screen failure most likely the cause?


More likely it is a bad LCD screen cable. You will need to disassemble the LCD panel & check the connectivity of the cable connectors with the inverter board. If this did not fix the issue, you will have to replace the LCD screen cable with a new one.

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:
