Question about Sony VAIO VGN-FZ230 FZ Series Notebook
I just need a step by step to replace my screen
With the power disconnected. First off there are 4 rubbers on the screen bezel itself. Take those off and then unscrew the 4 screws.
Then take off the screen bezel itself, it will be held in by clips so you may have to use a flathead to pry it off.
Once you expose the screen, there might be one screw on each side holding in each screen hinge, if so that those screws out.
At this point there will be 4 screws holding the screen in on both the left and right side hinge.
Go ahead and take off the 4 screws on each side of the hinge and this will loosen the screen completely.
At this point go ahead and unseat the connector that goes to the inverter toward the bottom of the screen. Also unseat the connector that goes to the back of the lcd.
At this point you will have the old screen removed.
Now go ahead and screw in the screws on the left hinge and right hinge so the new screen will stay in place. Go ahead and hook up the connector to the inverter, hook up the connector to the back of the lcd. At this point go ahead and turn on the laptop and just verify that the screen works and that there is no defects such as lines in the screen or weird colors. If there is then you'll need another screen.
If you have the 2 screws, screw each one on each side of the hinges to keep the hinges in place.
Then go ahead and snap the front bezel in place, then go ahead and put the 4 screws in place and then the rubbers on and you'll have a working laptop with a new screen in place.
