Lcd replace


You should the installation instructions with the new lcd 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

How do i fix a black corner on my laptop screen?


You damaged pixels in the LCD screen, Camilia. The answer is No. You have to replace the LCD screen.

[There are statements made, that a warm water damp clean cloth, can be used to gently massage the 'afflicted' area. Ummm, No.
Drip ANY water inside, and Poof! Bye-bye laptop AND LCD screen.

(Yes, even with ALL power removed. To include the CMOS battery inside. { RTC battery } Water droplet/s could still be present when power is reinstalled )

Statements made about gently using a pencil eraser on the area.
Compresses the layers of the panel, and forces oil to move around.
Does NOT always work, and may damage the LCD screen further ]

How tough is it? Doesn't take a rocket scientist. (Sorry Gort)
It's like doing an easy puzzle.

Example using an Asus K53U laptop,

http://www.insidemylaptop.com/how-to-replace-screen-on-asus-k53u-laptop/

1) ALL power is removed. Remove the AC adapter, and Battery.

2) Open the laptop. Remove the Screw Covers from the LCD Panel Bezel.
(The thin plastic frame in front of the LCD screen )

Screw Covers may be flat small pieces of plastic, or rubber covers.
Both will have a type of rubber cement on them. They are carefully removed with a pick type of instrument. (I use a computer pick)

They are then, one at a time, lightly stuck to the bezel, so they can be reused later.
Then all Philips head screws under the Screw Covers, are removed.

The LCD Panel Bezel has protrusions formed out of it's plastic body, and they surround the outside edges of the bezel. These are Tabs.
They snap into Latches, formed on the inside edge of the Display Cover.

The method to remove the LCD Panel Bezel, is to use your fingernail on the inside top edge/middle, of the bezel, and flex it slightly up away from the LCD screen. Then move your fingers along under the bezel on each side at the top, and pop the Tabs out of the Latches.

A thick guitar pick does help immensely. Use care when removing, but be aware that the bezel is made of space-age plastic. Snap, snap, snap, when the Tabs are freed from the Latches. Almost sounds like you are breaking something, and is a slightly tense situation for your first time.

Unplug the cable (Wire/s) from the screen Inverter, IF a screen Inverter is used. Usually mounted to an area at the bottom of the LCD screen.

If it does not use a CCFL for a Backlight, and uses LED's for a Backlight, it will not have a screen Inverter.
(Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp)

Average example of a screen Inverter,

https://www.nt-computerservices.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=76_77&products_id=235

(Approximately 3 to 4 inches Long, 1/2 inch Tall )

Lay the bezel aside. The LCD screen has a metal frame around it. Looks like a thin picture frame. On each side of this frame are Brackets. The screws are removed that hold the brackets, to the LCD Screen Frame.

Then the LCD screen can be tilted forward, and Video Cable removed.

The Video Cable's connector on the LCD screen side, has two Locks on each side usually, that you depress in, in order to unlock the video cable connector, and unplug the video cable from the LCD screen.

Reverse steps to reinstall.
Note that on the example for LCD screens, just the manufacturer code number is stated, not the laptop.
Look at the back of the LCD screen you removed, and match up the correct numbers.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Lcd screen has lines in the middle area (3" wide


Laptop screen display problems occur for many different reasons. Some issues need professional attention, but others can be repaired by the owner. A screen that displays vertical lines often means that there is a problem with the video cable connection to the LCD screen, or the cable itself. In order to repair this problem, the display screen must be disassembled. If you feel confident that this task is within your realm of expertise, follow the steps below to remove your laptop's LCD panel and fix the vertical line problem on your laptop screen.

1. Remove the rubber seals covering the screws on your screen's outer frame using a flat-head screwdriver. Remove the screws, then carefully pry the frame from the screen using your fingers. Release the plastic latches holding the framing in place, then remove.

2. Remove the screws holding the screen to the support brackets. You will see the video cable, which is attached to the back of the LCD screen. Try unplugging and reconnecting this cable, making sure that it is seated properly. If the problem was the connection, this may solve the vertical line issue.

3. Turn on the laptop. Move the video cable around a bit, without moving or touching the screen. Check the screen to see if the display image changes at all. If it does, the problem may be with the cable itself.
4. Move the laptop screen around to see if this affects the display. If so, the problem is most likely with the LCD screen itself, not the video cable. Replacing the screen will be necessary.

I hope you find it very helpful. Best regards.

Acer aspirw 5100 brightness


1.The Function key (Fn), and the F6 key are pressed to turn the Backlight off to conserve power.

2.The Fn key and the right side arrow key, are pressed to increase Brightness.

You have a TFT LCD monitor screen. (Thin Film Transistor)
The LCD screen cannot be seen clearly without a Backlight.

The Backlight is a CCFL. Cold Cathode Fluorescent
tube. Resembles a small fluorescent tube used in residential, and commercial lighting.

The Backlight can go bad after time, and weaken.
If so, it will have to be replaced.

Sounds easy, it isn't.

The TFT LCD monitor screen is made up of layers. It's enclosed in a thin metal frame. Resembles a picture frame.

The frame is removed, after removing the LCD screen from the laptop's top cover.

The LCD screen transparent outside layers, are separated partially from the rest of the LCD screen.
The Backlight is removed out of the side.

This gives you an example of removing, and replacing an average Backlight,

Mostly it is the problem of the screen's internal mechanism. Something has got loose and moves here n there when moved. If you can, you replace the malfunctioning parts or consult service centre for it.

LCD replacement


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.
