In this guide I explain how to remove and replace the LCD screen on an Acer Aspire one D255E netbook.
As you see, in my case the screen was cracked.
First of all, make sure the netbook is turned off.
Unlock and remove the battery.
Remove the screw cover from the left lower corner of the display assembly.
Remove the screw.
Remove the screw cover from the lower right corner of the display assembly.
Remove the screw.
Start separating the screen bezel from the display cover. I’m using the guitar pick for that but you can use any piece of plastic.
Insert the guitar pick between the screen bezel and display back cover and separate one from the other. At the same time insert your fingers under the screen bezel.
Continue removing the screen bezel with your finger and guitar pick.
Remove the screen bezel from the netbook.
Remove four screws securing the LCD screen.
Before you remove the screen you’ll have to disconnect one cable from the web camera module.
Carefully unplug the web camera cable. Do not pull by the cable. Unplug the connector by the edges.
Separate the LCD screen from the display back cover and place it the front side down on the palmrest assembly.
The web camera cable glued to the back side of the LCD screen.
Carefully unglue the web camera cable.
Remove clear tape securing the video cable connection.
Disconnect the video cable from the LCD screen.
Remove the damaged/failed LCD screen and replace it with a new one.
Assemble the laptop following all disassembly steps in the reverse order.
In order to find a new replacement LCD screen you can search by the model number printed on the back of the original LCD screen.
My Acer Aspire one D255E had this screen: N101L6-L0D. This screen available here.
If you have a different screen installed just search by the model number.
