    Are their screws that allow access to disassemble the lid itself, that allows for replacing just the screen and not the whole lid?

  • First, purchase your replacement LCD display for your exact model of Toshiba A135. I found mine for about $110 with shipping.
  • There are five screws hidden beneath rubber bumpers around the screen. Carefully use a small flat screwdriver to remove the pencil eraser sized rubber bumpers - one at each corner, with the fifth at the top center. Make sure you carefully remove the sticky stuff they used to adhere the bumper to the screw as well. Set these carefully aside.
  • Remove the five screws and set them aside.
  • Gently press down at the inside plastic frame until it pops out slightly. Gently press towards the center of the screen at the sides of the inside plastic frame until it pops out.
  • Carefully separate the front and back plastic shell around the screen. Set the front plastic frame aside. You may need to loosen some of the white tape used to keep wires attached to the rear plastic shell. Gently lower the rear plastic shell away from the LCD, but leave as many wires attached as possible.
  • On the back of the LCD there is a large cable. Carefully pull up the tape that holds this cable in place and pull the cable down to remove it. You will also have another piece of white tape on the back of the LCD to peel back. The tape is important - don't tear it or get your fingers in it to remove its stick!
  • At one end you will see a set of a few wires plugged into a piece still attached to the rear plastic shell. Unplug this.
  • No wires should still be plugged into the LCD anywhere at this point.
  • Around the LCD there are six small screws. Remove these and set them aside. You now have now removed the old LCD.
  • Reverse this process to re-assemble.
  • You may want to use some blue LockTite (which can be found at hardware stores) for the screws as you replace them. Additionally, you might need a little rubber cement to re-attach the rubber bumpers at the last step. If you do not re-attach these bumpers, your screen will quickly become scratched by your keyboard touching it when the lid is closed.
Good luck!

Broken Laptop Screen: Toshiba Satellite c670-165

As in this model?

The Display Assembly is laid back to a point, that you can access the two bottom screws. Isn't a direct 90 degree position with the screwdriver. More like 60 degrees.


Then the Top Cover (Palm Rest Cover) has to be removed, in order to access.

Don't forget to remove ALL power. AC adapter and Battery.

Just a quick note, before you go replace the entire screen, make sure it's not just a wiring problem. If so, it doesn't cost as much to replace the wires connecting the screen to the laptop. LCD's are much more expensive!
As for replacing the display, this website has information on the display, along with the ability to purchase it from their site.
Hope this works!

I need to replace the LCD screen on my Toshiba Satellite P305D-S8828. Can you provide step by step guide with photos or a video?

Replacing LCD is not a big deal. Just follow these steps:-

1. Unplug your laptop and remove the battery pack.

2. Locate the rubber screw covers around your laptop screen. There are typically four, but some models may have more.

3. Remove the screw covers. Take care not to lose any. They pop off.

4. Place your fingers between the front bezel (the plastic piece around the LCD screen) and the screen. Gently work your way around the screen to remove the front bezel and expose the screen assembly.

5. Remove the inverter from the screen assembly. It is held on by tape in most models. To disassemble the screen, you will need to either unscrew the screen from its metal holder, or just lift the screen out.

6. Disconnect the wires. One wire goes to the backlight, while the other goes to the video card.

7.Use exact serial no. LCD for exact replacement.

8. Connect the video wire and the backlight wireand affix it using the tape that held the original in place.

9. Put the screen back in place if you need to, and snap the front bezel back on.

10. Screw the front bezel screws back in, and place the screw covers back in place.

Hope they work for you. All the best
