The following guide explains how to remove and replace damaged or failed LCD screen on an Asus U56E laptop.
As you see, in my case the LCD was cracked.
Before you start, make sure the computer is turned off.
Unlock and remove the battery.
Remove six screw covers located on the display bezel.
There are four square screw covers on the upper side of the display and two more round covers on the lower part.
You can remove the screw cover with a sharp object.
After the screw covers removed, glue it somewhere on the bezel so you don’t loose it during the disassembly process. The cover has sticky tape on the bottom.
Remove all screws found under those covers.
Insert your fingers under the bezel and start separating the bezel from the display back cover.
There are hidden plastic latches securing the bezel. You’ll have to wiggle the bezel in order to unlock hidden latches.
After you separated the bezel from the display back cover on the upper side of the display assembly, move the lower part.
Remove the bezel.
Remove black tape from the left display hinge.
I’m not sure about the purpose of this tape but it was blocking one of the screws. I guess it’s securing display cables somehow.
Remove black tape from the right hinge.
Remove four screws securing the LCD assembly to the display back cover.
Now you should be able to separate the LCD from the display back cover.
Place the LCD face down on the palmrest/keyboard assembly.
Now you can access the video cable and disconnect it from the LCD.
Unglue clear tape securing the video cable connector.
Unplug the video cable connector from the LCD.
Remove the damaged/failed LCD and replace it with a new one.
Assemble the laptop following all disassembly steps in the reverse direction.
Asus U56E has a LED backlit LCD screen installed.
The LCD model number is located on the back side of the screen. In my laptop I had the following LCD installed: N156BGE-L41 Rev.C1.
In the next post I will explain how to disassemble the laptop case.
