How can I replace a damaged laptop screen myself? If you are asking yourself the same question then you should read through this tutorial witch explains how you can remove and replace cracked, damaged or broken LCD screen on a laptop computer at home, without taking it to an expensive repair shop.
Pictures show an example of the process of removing a laptop LCD Screen display. The approach is approximately the same with most notebook brands and models…We do not recommend removing the laptop LCD without technical experience. We would like to point out that you could lose your laptop’s manufacturer’s warranty if you remove the LCD.
You can use this LCD screen removal tutorial for any brand-name laptop such as Acer, Asus, Gateway, Dell, HP, Compaq, Toshiba, Sony and other less known brands. The disassembly steps will be very similar for most models.
Now, when you know how to remove and replace the screen, there is another question. How and where I can find a new replacement screen?
There are two reliable ways to search for the replacement screen:
1. Search by the manufacturer’s part number. Some manufacturers place a sticker with the part number on the back of the LCD screen. Most likely you’ll find a lot of different numbers on the screen. If you are not sure witch one is the manufacturer’s part number, just google it and see if your search returns any relevant results.
2. Search by the screen model number. You can find this number on the back of the LCD screen.
As an example, take a look at the LCD screen removed from a Toshiba laptop. You’ll see what numbers I’m talking about. K000044040 is Toshiba’s part number and LQ154K1LB1B is the screen model number.
There could be more then one LCD screen compatible with your laptop. Before you make a purchase, I would recommend contacting the seller and confirm that you are buying the right screen or ask if they can find a cheaper replacement.
