This guide will help you to remove the LCD screen and inverter board from a Sony Vaio VGN-SZ645 laptop display.
I think these instructions will work for many other Sony Vaio models.
Do not forget to remove the battery before you start.
OK, let’s take apart the display panel.
Using a sharp object (or small screwdriver) remove four rubber plugs. There is on plug in each corner of the display bezel.
Remove four screws found under rubber plugs.
Start removing the bezel as it shown on the picture below.
Continue removing the bezel. Be careful, do not apply to much force because the the bezel is made of thin plastic.
Remove the bezel.
In order to replace the screen inverter you don’t have to disassemble the laptop any further. Simply unplug two cables from both sides of the inverter board. I pointed these cables with two red arrows. Carefully remove the board and replace it with a new one if necessary.
Here’s how you can replace the screen.
Carefully remove the LCD panel from the cover and place it face down on the keyboard.
In order to remove the LCD panel completely you’ll have to:
1. Unplug the video cable from the connector on the back.
2. Unpug the backlight cable from the right side of the inverter.
Now you can replace the LCD screen with a new one if needed.
