I cant find an exact how to for that model, but the majority of toshiba laptops are the same. Here is a site for toshiba disassembly links http://www.irisvista.com/tech/

The majority of the toshiba laptops reqire you to take the plastic bezel off the top of the keyboard before you can remove the screen, i know that from replacing screens personally. After taking the bezel off you can remove the hinge screw which hold the laptop screen in place once thats removed you can remove the front plastic bezel of the screen, you will need to remove the rubber covers over the screw holes. They will pull off using a nail once you get under them enough, if the glue gets left behind on the screw head just peel it off and stick to the bottom of the rubber cover you removed and put them somewhere safe . Once all the covers are removed you can actually take the screws out. Once all screws are removed use a thin plastic to GENTLY prise the plastic away from the bottom(AKA top) of the screen. do this all the way round till you can lift the screen plastic away. Now remove the webcam cable if your laptop has one then any screws that appear to me holding the screen in. then prise the screen up gently, there is a video cable attached to the back of the screen, so go gently as you dont want to break it. The cable is taped along its length to the back of the screen, this can be easily pulled away from it , do it until you reach the connector, the connector is held on with tape so you will need to pull that off to, try not to tear it and you can use it again on the new screen. once the tap is removed gently pull the connector down so it disconnects from the screen and lift the screen away. Now you have the screen out there is a metal frame on either side and maybe the top and bottom ,attached to the edges of the screen ,these need to be removed and attached to the new screen so it fits snugly. They are held in by small crosshead screws simply take the screws out one side at a time and place them on the new screen attach the cables and while you still have it apart test the screen to see if it works. If it does then reassemble the screen.
It might seem daunting at first but as long as you take your time and maybe take some pics of the screen before diassembling , for refrence you should be ok.

Good luck and if you found this info useful please vote for me

What's your problem?When I try to boot my Toshiba L455-S5975 all I can get is a black screen and a blinking cursor. What can I do to solve this problem?


Try turning on your laptop and then pressing the f8 key repeatedly, then you should be presented with a set of options, one of these should be safe mode, unless you are trying to factory reset, but anyway if that doesnt work you could try turning it on but pressing 0 (zero) instread of the f8 key

Video on my toshiba L455=s5009 comes on for a few seconds then blacks out


From your brief diagnoses stated, it sounds like a bad Video Cable.

The Video Cable routes from the motherboard, across one edge of the Fan Assembly, and under the left Hinge assembly,

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-Pro-L450-L455/big-body/laptop-disassembly-19.jpg

With just the usual opening, and closing of the laptop, the Video Cable's sheath may be damaged. This means the tiny wires inside the sheath may be damaged.
(Stretched/Broken)

http://www.laptoprepairparts.com/html/details.asp?ref=1860&category=cables

Or it may be the screen Inverter that is damaged, or going out,

http://mcccomputers.com/shop/lcd-inverters/3666-new-toshiba-satellite-l455-s5009-l455-s5045-lcd-inverter-pk070006t20-k000087330.html

Or the LCD screen assembly.

Could be the graphics chipset.

Diagnose.

1) Laptop OFF, monitor OFF, connect an external VGA monitor to the laptop's VGA connector, on the back of the laptop.

[ RBG (Monitor) port ]

You can use a CRT monitor (Looks like a small TV), or a flat LCD screen monitor if it has a VGA cable, for the external VGA monitor.

[ Example of a VGA cable, and a VGA port (Connector),

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector ]

Turn the external VGA monitor on. If a CRT type allow it to warm up.
Turn the laptop on.

By default the external monitor should show the display, also.
IF not;
1) Press, and hold down on the Fn key, and simultaneously tap on the F5 key. (The F5 key is the Display toggle-over key)

Not showing on the external VGA monitor? Perform the above procedure again.
There are several display options.

External VGA monitor also show the same symptoms?
Bad graphics chipset. Replacing the motherboard is the most cost effective method, and easiest method.

External VGA monitor does Not show these symptoms?
Problem is the Video Cable, or screen Inverter, or LCD screen.

Due to movement of the LCD screen, which means movement of the Video Cable, my money is on a bad Video Cable.

(A Video Cable can be unplugged partially, real easy, on the back of the LCD screen.
It MAY look plugged in tightly, but may not be.

It can also be unplugged real easy when assembling the Display Assembly, to reinstall back on the laptop )

Check the Video Cable's wires with a multimeter. Perform a continuity check of all wires in the cable. (Multimeter set to Ohms)

Have an assistant also gently wiggle the cable, as you are testing. See if there is an intermittent break, due to a stretched/broken wire.

Or just buy a replacement Video Cable, and use it.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LEDflashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faultyinverter or a faulty CCFL lamp.

I am in need of a repair manual for a Toshiba Satellite L455-S5975 laptop in order to replace the LCD screen. I have searched everywhere, but no luck. Does anyone have a source? Thank you.


Not sure if you will find one... Process on toshibas is:

Pop top cover (sometimes also secured with a few screws on side or bottom of laptop) near monitor base above keyboard to access LCD cable and mount screws
Unplug cable and remove monitor mounting screws (Under plate, on back where cables plugin, and sometimes on bottom)
Take monitor (on flat surface) and remove screw covers with needle so you can put them back on later.
Remove all screws
Use plastic credit card and run around outside lip of screen case until removed
Remove LCD mounting screws
Remove LCD and inverter
Remove LCD brackets and inverter from panel
Replace panel and start working backwords.

Can not turn on


> only 5 months.

Then, it still is under warranty.

Either Wal-Mart or Toshiba will repair it or replace it, at their cost.
