Can't get the bezel detached at the bottom to replace the LCD. Am I not seeing some hidden screws or do I need to just use more ''muscle'' to get the bezel off?

Broken screen

To begin your fix, you'll need a few simple tools and a replacement LCD screen. For tools, I recommend a screwdriver with a variety of small bits, such as a Phillips #00 and a Torx T5. It's also a good idea to have a few thin metal blades or plastic spudgers. These are really handy for removing the trim that surrounds the screen.

As for the replacement LCD, you should be able to buy one either from the laptop manufacturer's authorized parts dealer or a third-party supplier. Depending the screen, they usually cost between $50 and $250 dollars-more if it's a high-end display or you buy an OEM replacement. Regardless, you'll want to buy a new screen that matches your broken one exactly. The only sure way to do this is to remove the broken one.

After disconnecting the power supply and removing the battery, carefully examine the bezel around the screen. You'll need to remove this bezel to access the screws that hold the LCD panel in place.

On this laptop, several rubber cushions hide screws, which hold the bezel in place. I'll need to remove these cushions and the screws that are underneath.

With the hidden screws removed, I used a thin metal blade to pop loose one of the bottom corners and worked my way around the bezel with a plastic spudger.

How to replace an inverter board in a laptop screen.

Your laptop has no display but when you hook up an external monitor the picture is fine on it. If this is true then more than likely you have a bad inverter board. They are available at . They are not that expensive. You could also have a bad LCD screen but my experience has been that most of the time the inverters go bad. One way to tell is to shine a bright light on the LCD screen. At the right angle you should be able to see what should be on it. If you see a display then you probably have a bad inverter board. That doesn't rule out a bad back light but on most new computers you have to replace the display to replace the backlight so it would be a mute issue since the cost would be as much as a new unit.

To replace the inverter board you will have to remove the bezel around the LCD screen. Usually the bezel has a few screws hidden under plastic dots or rubber cushions. Remove any you see and then pry the bezel off. The inverter board should be visible at the bottom of the screen and may be held in with two screws. Remove and replace the inverter, reassemble the unit and you should be back in business.


Thanks for using FixYa.

Display needs replacing

Take off the round rubbers that are covering the screws. There should be 4 screws on top and 4 screws on the bottom. There might be stuff covering the screws, if so take the covers off.

Once you have all 8 of the screws exposed, unscrew all the screws from the lcd bezel. After you get all the screws off then you might need a flathead screwdriver to get the lcd bezel off, put it in a area of the screen and twist the screwdriver to get the bezel to unsnap, you may have to do this in a few areas. Then you should be able to get the bezel off.

Once you do this there will be two screws on the left bottom and two screws on the right bottom. Take off those screws and it will release the lcd back cover. Now at this point you'll be able to get to the screws that are holding the lcd in place on the left hand side and the right hand side. Take off those screws and the screen will become loose, take off the lcd cable from the back of the lcd and you'll now be able to completely remove the lcd.

Once you do that put the new lcd in and put the screws back on the left and right hand side of the lcd. Then connect the lcd cable to the lcd. At this point put the lcd back cover on and put back the 4 screws that are holding it in. Now put on the front lcd bezel and put all 8 of the screws back into it.

At this point turn on the laptop and you should get video.

How do I remove the invertor from a Qosmio F20?

The inverter is located behind the bezel at the bottom of the screen/lid and in between the hinges.
The bezel has screws that fixes it to the lid and these can be hidden by stick-on plastic covers. Use a thin sharp point to lift these plastic covers off to reveal the screws. Remove these screws.
The bezel has small plastic catches that clips it to the lid and may also be fixed to the LCD screen with double sided tape. Use a thin blade and insert it between the LCD screen and the bezel and gently ease the bezel off. Start at the bottom of the screen and gradually work along the edge and continue around each side to free the bezel.
Be CAREFUL not to scratch the LCD screen and DO NOT apply too much pressure to the face of the LCD screen because you can crack the glass surface and ruin the LCD screen.
Once the bezel is removed then you can get access to the inverter to remove it.

Anyone replace the inverter on an Acer Aspire 6920?

I haven't replaced an inverter on this model before, but have done on a few other makes.
Generally the inverter is located on the bottom edge of the LCD screen behind the bezel.
The bezel is secured with screws on the front and or the edges of the bezel. these screws in most cases are hidden by small round plastic covers, they need to be carefully peeled off to reveal the screws. Also the bezel is held in place with plastic clips and double sided tape. Slip a thin metal strip between the screen and the bezel and carefully pop the bezel off, start at the bottom edge and work along each edge to release the bezel. Be careful not to scratch the LCD screen and be careful not to apply pressure to the face of the LCD screen otherwise you will crack the LCD screen.

Broke lcd

Start by removing the screws for the screen bezel, the plastic cover around the screen, then the bezel snaps off. Be careful not to break it, they break very easily. The screws are hidden/located under stick tabs or the small rubber bumpers. Once you have the bezel off you will see the screws holding the screen, and the screen and inverter connectors. The rest is self explanatory, the screen goes back in the same as it came out. HP's support site has many service manuals and illustrated instructions for many of their machines. So, keep this in mind if you get stuck.
