Removing the LCD from a Compaq CQ60-215DX

I have a Compaq CQ60-215DX with a cracked LCD. I've found replacements for it online but all the instructions that I've found are generic and show removing screws from the bezel to remove the LCD. This model does not have any screws on the bezel and I'm wondering how to remove it to replace it? I would like to know if I can fix it before I order the parts.

I have a CQ60-220US HP Compaq and access to the LCD screen was different than others I have disassembled and replaced the display. The bezel is snapped on, the lid does not lay back flat to access the two hinge screws, but there are 2 screws with rubber covers down by the hinges, not all the way around.

I used a right angle phillips screw driver and was able to remove the bottom screws, popped off the bezel the remainder of the way around the screen, it is different, but don't be fooled there are a few screws just not the amount you might be used to, and then gaining access to one of the hinge screws on each side can be an issue as the lid did not lay back flat, but with a good right angle screw driver you can get it done, I did. I am not sure if the proper method is to not just remove the entire top cover and hinges, but the right angle screw driver and finding that this model had only a couple bezel screws made it much easier to tackle.

I have removed LCD screen on quite few laptops. Most of them do have a combination of screws and plastic clips the secure the bezel to the lid and with double sided tape to the LCD screen.
The screws are hidden with plastic covers over the screw heads and need to be lifted off to get access to the screws.
Some screws may be located on the edge of the lid/screen.
Also the video cable/connector that connects the LCD screen to the motherboard would be located between the keyboard and the hinges. This may be access by removing the plastic panel which houses push buttons and LED indicators. You may have to remove the whole top of the case if it is in one piece to get to the video connector.

The LCD screen on my Nikon Coolpix S4000 is cracked. Can I replace this myself?


Are you familiar with dissembling and assembling cameras? Are you able to obtain the part a reasonable price? If you can answer YES to both then I say Yes!

LCD screen replacements are available on the Internet. Make sure you select one that suits your laptop because the video and inverter connectors can be different between makes and models even though they maybe the same screen size.
Have a look at LCD Parts WEB site for parts, service and DIY info use this link :-

Lcd hinges cracked


The parts you're looking for are called "display panel hinges" You can buy these parts from compaq/hp directly, but personally, I would call, find out the part number and try to find a cheaper place to purchase them. A detailed video on removing the LCD panel completely can be found here. This will show you how to remove the broken hinges, and on the left side of the page, you can select videos that will show you how to do practically everything else. To get your replacement parts go to the compaq website (I couldn't find the part without the serial) or call 1-800-227-8164. There is also a live chat option once you go to the support section of the website. You may be able to rig the display so it works without buying a part, but now that you have the information, it's up to you. I hope this helps!

Display on but lamp not on


Hi, your LCD backlight has stopped working. This can either be repaired by HP, or you can replace the LCD assembly on the laptop. If you want to replace the LCD on the laptop yourself, you can find the replacement LCD online somewhere like eBay or an online parts reseller. Once you get the LCD, you can remove the old one and install the new one. It's only a few plastic panels, and about 8 screws and 1 wire.

Acer 6920 LCD Screen damaged


The screen is impossible to repair if its cracked. Getting a new LCD isn't that expensive but only if you know how to replace it. Getting one from manufacturer is around 130. but there is an ebay link on the bottom you can get one for 70 or so with shipping.

This link shows you how to replace a LCD screen. even tho its not your model but is very close to how yours look.

Compaq presario c700 laptop no light on lcd screen after cleaning


The display is backlit by a fluorescent lamp, not bulbs. The cleaner sprayed onto the screen has likely migrated downward and either disabled or destroyed the inverter used to produce high voltage for the backlight lamp. The inverter may be part of the display or on a separate board and you can only determine that by some disassembly.

Hp pavilion dv 1000 screen replacment


Dear lotaman, I have searched the world to find an exact guide for your monitor but it is impossible. Neveretheless I have found the following guides and they should be more than enough to complete the task in hand anytime.

TIP: The ZV5000 looks and is very similar to the HP DV1000 screen so I would start from there. All guides are very nicely explained.

Please remember to remove the battery before you do any work with the laptop.

Regards
