Question about Panasonic PV-GS39 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
Jeez! You posted this in January! I wonder if this is even still an issue for you.
Well, what you DON'T do is take out absolutely every screw you can see and then pull the damn thing apart, nearly rendering it useless -- like someone I know nearly did....
I can only help you as far as getting the LCD off/exposed. I dropped my camera the other day and discovered my cracked LCD screen.
You say you've taken all 6 screws out. That's good. There are two MAIN (sort of hidden) screws on the bottom of the LCD screen itself -- these hold the frame of the LCD to the shell into which the frame fits. If you look closely at the LCD screen, you'll see there's a plastic frame around it. This is actually sunken into an outer shell which encases it.
Turn the LCD screen around so that the glass faces outward and fold it flat against the camera -- LCD facing outward instead of inward (the silver Panasonic logo should be against the camera body). Now you have a flat surface to work with.
The whole LCD screen mechanism is sandwiched around the pivot point. I took two flat blade eyeglass screwdrivers (you know, the real small kind) and started prying at the pivot point. As you work one bigger flat blade into the pivot point and pry up, use the other screw driver to keep the plastic frame still pryed up in place while you reposition the other screwdriver, continuing to "walk" the screwdrivers carefully around the perimeter of the frame. It won't be too long before you'll see that just off of each corner of this plastic frame there are small tabs which should easily pry away from the plastic "Panasonic logo" shell.
The LCD then sort of pops out of the shell and dangles by a ribbon connector.
I don't have any clue where to go from there, tho. I haven't purchased a replacement screen yet.
May I ask: Where did you buy your replacement LCD from? Do you know how to reattach a new one?
I hope this helped.
Thanks in advance!

as you say that old speaker is working from the same tower means your computer is ok.
the problem is in speaker only.
plz chk that while shifting some wire must have broken or loose or speaker not connected properly.
ultimately chk connection.
