How to replace a ccfl backlight bulb on presario cq60-419wm


Let's talk for a minute..........

CCFL = Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp. (Bulb)
Similar to Fluorescent lighting used in homes, and businesses; but on a MUCH smaller scale.

Average thickness is 2mm. That is a little thicker than 1/16th of an Inch.
Or about the width of this capital -> O <-

Average length is almost as long, as the LCD screen is in height.

Just like it's larger 'cousins', it has Mercury in it. A POISON.

They break VERY easily, and have Mercury inside.

I usually suggest changing the LCD screen itself, to replace a Backlight.

More expensive?
If you are talking about price of LCD screen compared to a CCFL bulb.

There is NO price for a human life.

Okay, moving on..................

The plastic frame in front of the LCD screen is the Display Bezel.

I may be wrong, but I believe the Display Bezel can be removed, WITHOUT having to remove the entire Display Assembly from the laptop.

Makes life a lot easier.

There is a Philips head screw in the Bottom/Left corner, and a Philips head screw in the Bottom/Right corner, to remove from the Display Bezel.

They are under Screw Covers. The Screw Covers are made of synthetic rubber, or plastic. They are held in place by a type of rubber cement.
I take a computer pick, and gently pry up at the base of the Screw Cover.

If you are careful you should be able to reuse the Screw Covers.
If they do not stick anymore, apply a TINY dab of rubber cement to them, with a toothpick.

The Display Bezel has TABS going around the exterior perimeter of it's inside edges.
These snap into matching LATCHES on the Display Cover.

There also may be some sticky tape, at the bottom/inside edge of the Display Bezel. Means CAREFULLY pry the bottom edge of the Display Bezel when removing.

The best method, of removal of the Display Bezel that I have found, is to flex it.
It is made of space-age plastic, and is pretty tough stuff.
(Of course there are those, who could destroy a steel ball bearing with a rubber mallet, in a sandbox)

I cut a piece of thick construction paper, to just fit the inside edges of the Display Bezel.
Display Assembly laid as far back as possible, the thick piece of construction paper will stay in place.
It is used to prevent scratching of the LCD screen, from your fingernails.

Come to the Inside edge (LCD screen side), of the right/middle side of the Display Bezel. Sliding a fingertip of one hand under the bezel to lift up slightly.
Can't get in? Move over a little. You are at a Tab/Latch.

With one fingertip under the bezel, slide another fingertip under from your other hand. By now a Tab/Latch should have released.


Sounds like you're breaking something.

Keeping the bezel slightly up, move along with the fingertips of one hand, and move towards the Top.
Go along the Top popping Tabs/Latches loose.
Then come down the Left side.

As you reach the bottom ease up on one side a little, and wait for the tape to start releasing. Then ease along the bottom until all the tape releases, and the Display Bezel pops off.

Once the Display Bezel is removed, then disconnect the small cable that comes from the Video Cable (Display Cable - HP), TO the screen Inverter board. (Left side of screen Inverter)

(screen Inverter is mounted behind the Display Bezel, and at the bottom of the Screen Frame.
The Screen Frame is the thin metal frame which surrounds the LCD screen assembly)

[The LCD screen is an assembly of layers. The layers are held in the factory set position by the Screen Frame]

Disconnect the small cable that goes TO the screen Inverter, on the Right side of the screen Inverter.
Remove the screen Inverter, and lay aside.

Remove the Philips head screw at EACH top corner. Holds the Screen Frame TO the Display Cover.

Tilt the top of the LCD screen towards you, remove the clear adhesive tape over the Video Cable connector on the back of the LCD screen.

(DO NOT remove the tape all the way. Just carefully peel it back far enough, so that you can get to the Video cable connector, at the back of the LCD screen. This way you should be able to reuse the tape)

Disconnect the Video Cable (Display Cable) from the back of the LCD screen.

Remove JUST the screws which hold the Hinge Brackets TO the Screen Frame.

The Screen Frame can be taken apart. Of course you will need to do this, BUT ONLY after removing the LCD screen assembly.

THREE screws on each side for the Hinge Brackets.
(Display Panel Brackets)
One towards the Top, two down towards the Bottom.

Compaq presario 1200 laptop monitor problem

This is due to a bad Backlight, or screen Inverter.

90 PERCENT OF THE TIME the fault is a bad screen Inverter,

A small primer before we continue;

An LCD screen cannot produce light. It needs an additional light source.
A Backlight is the additional light source,

Click on the monitor icon.

A Backlight can be a CCFL, (Or two of them), or a series of LED's.
(Light Emitting Diode)

The Compaq Presario 1200 series of Notebook PC's, uses a Single CCFL.

(The exact model number is on the Bottom of the laptop. It is in a white Service Tag, and P/N = Product Number. Compaq and HP's model number)

A CCFL is a Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp.
Similar to Fluorescent lighting used in homes, and businesses, but on a MUCH smaller scale.

Average thickness is 2mm. That is a little larger than 1/16th of an Inch, or about this thick -> O
Average length is almost as long, as the LCD screen is in height.


Look at the last 8 photos ]

A screen Inverter is used to convert the power of the laptop, for the LCD screen, and Backlight.
(LED backlighting doesn't usually use a screen Inverter.
CCFL backlighting Does)

Primer over.

The front plastic thin frame in front of the LCD screen, is the
Display Bezel.
The screen Inverter is located behind the Display bezel, and is located towards the bottom of the LCD screen.

1) Remove ALL power. Remove the AC adapter (Charger), and Battery.

2) Open the laptop to the usual 90 degree position.

AS FAR AS I CAN TELL, you do not need to remove the Display Assembly from the laptop, in order to remove the Display Bezel.

IF the Display Bezel will Not come off, with the Display Assembly attached to the laptop, I will give a link at the bottom of this section to a free Service Manual from HP Support.

There are 4 Philips head screws that go around the front, of the Display Bezel.

One at the Top Right corner, one at the Top Left corner, one at the Bottom Left corner by the left Hinge, and one at the Bottom Right corner by the right Hinge.

These are covered by Screw Covers. The screw covers can be pried off with your fingernails. If you use care you may be able to reuse them again. I stick them to the Display Bezel frame for safekeeping.
(They also like to stick to your fingers too! lol!)

If the glue is not reusable on the screw cover/s, just put a tiny little dab of Rubber Cement on them, using a toothpick.
(Try to remove any old glue first)

Use a Philips screwdriver of the right size, and remove the 4 Philips screws.
The Display Bezel is now pried off.

Use CARE as your fingernails can scratch the LCD screen.
You can lay the LCD screen back as far as it will go, then cut something to fit the LCD screen area, and be inside the inside edges of the Display Bezel.
Poster board, cardboard, cloth, etc.

Or use a pair of computer gloves.

The procedure is to lift the inside edge of the top, of the Display Bezel up a little. Then move over a few inches with your other hand, and try lifting up on another inside edge of the Display Bezel.
This will slightly flex the frame of the Display Bezel.

There are Latches on the inside of the Display Bezel, and Tabs on the Display Cover. (Cover that is the top when you close the laptop)
The Latches snap into the Tabs.

When you lift up on the inside edge of the Display Bezel, the Display Bezel will flex. Lift up, slide your fingers over under the Display Bezel, and the bezel will start popping off. Snap, snap, snap.

Keep working along, and popping those Latches loose from the Tabs.

Same principle, less screws,

Again, a different laptop than yours. Main info I want you to see is at
3:04 to 3:22,

The screen Inverter will be located at the bottom/middle, of the LCD Screen Frame.
Remove the screw/s that hold it on. Carefully unplug the wires to it.
Plug the wires to the new one, and remount the screen Inverter.

Snap the Display Bezel back into place, reinstall the screws, and screw covers.

Replacing a CCFL backlight if the screen Inverter wasn't the problem;

It's TRICKY, and dangerous.
The bulb is so thin it can break in a New York minute.
It also contains MERCURY just like Fluorescent lamps used in homes, and businesses.

How to remove the screen from the y510

The thin plastic 'frame' in the front of the LCD screen, is the Display Bezel.

Goes by many names. Display Bezel is used by HP.

Display Mask, LCD Bezel, LCD Panel Bezel, and LCD Front Bezel, are a few other examples.

Lenovo/IBM uses LCD Front Bezel.

Lenovo doesn't show an HMM for the IdeaPad's, other than for the S9e series, and S10e series, (Notebook), plus the A1-07 series. (Tablet)
(Hardware Maintenance Manual)

(An HMM is a Service Manual)

I also see there are no guides posted by users.

Therefore we'll have to 'wing it', using my years of experience with repairing laptops, and you as the tech.

1) Do you see any screw covers on the LCD Front Bezel?

May not be the usual synthetic rubber covers. May be plastic, and the same plastic, and color as the LCD Front Bezel.


Scroll down to the photos in Steps 1 and 2.

Also note the 'seals' on the side of the Display Assembly, shown in Step 2 photo.

We'll start with this.

2) Haven't worked on a Y510, and perusing the internet; it seems no one has found a solution, for removing the LCD Front Bezel off of an IdeaPad Y510.

{ ALL power removed before beginning. Remove the AC adapter
(Charger), and Battery }

A) There is no sticky double-sided tape holding it on.

B) Can't simply 'pop' it off, as with other Display Bezels, that do not use Philips head screws to hold it on.

[ For all Display Bezels, (Other than this baby, perhaps), there are locking tabs on the outside edges of the Display Bezel.

These match up to snap locks, on the inside edge of the Display Cover. (Top cover of laptop)
When the Display Bezel is removed, the locks snap loose ]

C) I suggest remove the screws which hold the Display Assembly to the laptop, and see if at the bottom of the Display Assembly, there are screw covers, or just screws, to remove.

If there are, and no other screw covers/screws to remove, the LCD Front Bezel should pop off.

This is what I mean by pop off,

Step 2 and 3.

{ The laptop is made by Wistron. (Philippines) One of the three major laptop manufacturers, that makes laptops for ALL laptop brand manufacturers.
Such as Acer, Compaq, HP, Lenovo, Toshiba, Asus, you name it }

How do you remove bezel from compac presario cq62

1) ALL power removed from the laptop. Remove the AC adapter (Charger) and Battery.

2) Open the laptop, lay the Display Assembly back as far as you can.

At the bottom on the outside corners, there are two rubber like screw covers. One in each corner.
Carefully remove these (2) with a computer pick, or similar device.

The screw covers are held on by a type of rubber cement. If you carefully start one edge up, and lift it off, you can reuse the screw cover again. Lay it down on flat surface, glue side up.
(Yes, they like to stick to the pick, and to your fingers)

Underneath the screw covers are Philips head screws. ( X )
Remove them.

3) To remove the Display Bezel go to the middle of the bezel at the top and bottom, and flex it up a little.
Do the same with the right and left side.
The bezel will pop up, and out.

{The Display Bezel has protrusions that are tabs, going along the inside edge. These tabs snap into the Display Enclosure. The top cover of the laptop.

When you carefully flex far enough, some of the tabs will pop out.
For your first time it may give you a sinking feeling in your stomach, because for the first two, or so, you'll think you're breaking something.

When enough tabs are released the Display Bezel will come off.
The plastic used for a laptop is space-age plastic, and pretty tough stuff, but do not get too rough with it }

Removing the LCD from a Compaq CQ60-215DX

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.

Backlight Inverter.

In my experience, the inverter is usually located at the very bottom of the display assembly (nearest where the hinges connect). You'll have to remove the bezel from the display to access the inverter board. Refer to pages 121-125 of this assembly manual. It doesn't discuss the inverter board directly, only how to remove the display (if you haven't already). The bezel on the display may have a few screws (behind rubber pads, usually), but the rest of the bezel should pop apart.
