Question about Toshiba Satellite A305-S6883 Notebook

1 Answer

LCD replacement Trying to install new screen. Cannot find instructions on this exact model to get the old frame off in order to properly install the new screen. The lower portion of the bezel is still on - preventing the frame from being completely removed. How can we take that off? The hinge cover is blocking access to the plug so we cannot install new screen plug into the inverter. Other similar models do not have this same type of hinge connecting screen to keyboard, and mine does not show any place where any screws would be - it's flat and smooth. If you look at a photo of this model of laptop you'll see. Please help if you can!! Thanks, Nicole

    we have the plastic frame off, all except that one spot on the bottom where it is connected at the base. We cannot see ANY plastic covers to remove to reveal screws - the ones around the rest of the frame were easily identified..however the base seems to be completely connected with no identifyable covers for screws to complete the dismantle. If you look at my EXACT model online at a photo - close up at the way the base connects, you'll see what I'm talking about. I realize there has/should be a way, but it's not clear AT ALL!

    thanks...

The LCD screen is fixed to the base of the laptop with screws at the hinges.
Some screws are hidden behind small stuck on plastic covers, you need a thin sharp blade to lift them to reveal the screws. The frame around the LCD screen most likely held in place by plastic clips or stuck on with double sides tape. Slide a spatula between the LCD and frame and gently prize the frame free, take care not to break the plastic frame.
Once you remove the frame there are screws that fix the LCD to the lid of the laptop.
You need to lay the screew flat to unclip the plastic cover to expose the hinges and the video cable between the screen and motherboard. There are usually screws holding this cover in place.

How to replace a cracked screen


Replacing a damaged laptop LCD screen can bring your laptop back to life.

You'll be able to access files you thought were lost and use the laptop just as you did before. And it's not as difficult as you might think.


Turn off the power, unplug the battery and all cables.

Eject the installed battery if you have one.

This will protect you against electric shock.


Find the small, round rubber screw covers and pry them off.

This will expose the small screws holding the LCD screen frame in place.


Depending on your laptop, these covers might be made of some other type of material.

Remove the frame by gently prying.


Locate the LCD screen's cable and power supply cords. Unplug them and remove any tape holding the screen in place.


Check the identify of the manufacturer on the back or side of the screen.

It may be different than your computer's manufacturer.


Since these screens look so similar, make sure you order an LCD screen that matches your manufacturer's model number, or else the new screen will not fit.


Plug in the new LCD screen, replace any tape holding the screen in place and replace the frame.

Don't pinch any wires as you press the frame back into place.


Screw the frame down and switch on the power to see if it works.

If it does, go ahead and replace the screw covers.


If it doesn't, remove the battery, the screws and the frame.

Check your connections.


If it still doesn't work, call your parts supplier and ask for assistance in getting another replacement LCD screen.


Hope this helps

JUST REPLEACED LCD R52 AND THE SCREEN IS BLACK


You replaced the broken LCD screen in your laptop with a new screen but it’s not working.
Does this sound like your problem? Let’s find out what could be wrong and how you can fix it.
First of all, I assume that your new LCD screen is compatible with the old one. Different screens require different video cables. Make sure you new screen is compatible with your laptop.

You did some research and purchased a compatible screen, installed it into the laptop, turned it on and… The new screen is not working!!! What could be wrong?


Before you start to panic, check all cable connections again. Check connection between the video cable, LCD screen and inverter board. Reconnect cables just in case.
Take a closer look at the connection between the video cable and LCD screen. It’s possible you accidentally pulled the video cable from the connector during the screen installation.
The video cable has to be seated properly, all the way down.
Also, on some older LCD screens there are very thin pins inside the connector. Take a look inside the connector, make sure there are no damaged (bent) pins.
You can straighten bent pins with a very small screwdriver but this procedure requires a lot of patience and concentration.

Fortunately, most newer LCDs have a different type of connector, without fragile pins inside.
OK, you have reseated all connectors and cannot see anything wrong but the new screen still is not working. What’s next?

Remove the new screen and connect the old one. If the old one works properly (except the damaged area) but the new one is dead, apparently the new screen is defective and has to be replaced.


Hopefully it has warranty.
Here’s another scenario. The new screen kinda works. You can see a very faint image but there is no backlight.
If that’s the case, disconnect the new screen from the inverter board and plug in the old screen instead, as it shown on the picture below. If the backlight inside the old screen lights up, apparently the new screen has defective backlight lamp and has to be replaced.

To replace broken screen on acer aspire 5735


First you need to get the right screen. Take out the screen by removing the rubber bumpers on the corners of the lcd bezel, then unscrew the screws that were beneath the rubber. After that you will have to pry slightly on the edges of the bezel to unsnap it and remove it from the laptop.

After that you will remove the screws on the sides the attach the screen to the hindges. On the back of the lcd it will give the model number, ebay is a good source for lcd screens. Once you get a replacement screen, you disconnect the cable on the back of the lcd and bottom, and then repalce the screen and assemble in reverse order.

How do i replace a toshiba qosmio f45-av411 lcd


First remove the battery from te laptop. Locate all the screw covers (in the front side) with the watch maker screen driver. There might be four of them. Once you remove the screw. covers, remove the screws and remove the front bezel. You can now separate eh front bezel. Locate the screen assembly. Remember, there might be laches. So, be careful not to break them. You will see the frame scrwes after this with the vedio cable quite visible. Just remove them to find the invertor. Thats it.. You have removed the LCD screen.

Hope this helps.

Broken screen


Hey how are you!!!

First of all, I assume that your new LCD screen is compatible with the old one. Different screens require different video cables. Make sure you new screen is compatible with your laptop.
OK, let’s say you accidentally damaged the LCD screen in your laptop. A part of the screen still works fine but you cannot use it like that so you decided to replace the screen yourself.

Her is some instructions to follow.

Before you start to panic, check all cable connections again. Check connection between the video cable, LCD screen and inverter board. Reconnect cables just in case.
