In this guide I will remove and replace the screen and inverter on an Acer Aspire 3620 laptop.
The guide will work for other Acer Aspire models. If it works for your, please mention the model number in the comments below.
Let’s start taking it apart.
You’ll find four rubber plugs in four corners of the display bezel.
Remove these plugs with a sharp object and glue them somewhere so they don’t get lost.
Remove four screws hidden under the rubber plugs.
Start separating the display bezel with your fingers. I found it’s easier to separate the bezel if you start from the top.
Continue separating it from the cover.
Be careful with the display latch, it has to stay attached to the cover.
Finally, remove the bezel.
You’ll find the screen inverter board also known as FL inverter mounted below the LCD panel.
Remove two screws securing the inverter board.
In order to remove the inverter board, you’ll have to unplug two cables.
The black cable on the left side is connected to the motherboard. It supplyis power to the inverter from the motherboard.
The cable one the right side is connected to the backlight lamp inside the screen.
Now you can replace the inverter board with a new one if necessary.
Remove two screws securing the display brackets to the hinges.
Now you can separate the screen assembly from the cover and access the back side.
Remove clear tape securing the connection and unplug the video cable.
After the video cable is unplugged, you can remove the screen assembly.
Transfer both side mounting brackets to the new screen.
