In this guide I explain how to take apart the display assembly on a Compaq Presario F700 laptop.
All disassembly steps will be similar for Compaq Presario F500, HP G6000 and some other HP/Compaq models.
I will show how to remove the screen, inverter board and display hinges.
If you want to replace the screen or inverter, it’s not necessary to separate the display panel. You can do that while it’s still attached to the base.
On the other hand, for hinge replacement, you’ll have to remove the display panel first (follow steps 6-12).
Using a sharp object remove eight screw seals from the display bezel.
Remove eight screws found under the seals.
Start separating the bezel from the display cover with your fingers.
Continue removing the bezel.
The display bezel has been removed.
The inverter board is mounted on the lower part of the back cover.
Disconnect cables from both sides of the inverter board and remove it.
The inverter has been removed.
Remove six screws securing both hinges to the display cover.
Now you can remove the LCD panel assembly from the cover.
Access the LCD cable on the back side.
- Unplug the cable.
- Remove yellow tape securing the cable.
- Remove the cable.
Remove two screws securing the left hinge mounting bracket.
Remove two more screws from the right hinge bracket.
Both display hinges have been removed.
Now you can replace the screen with a new one if necessary.
You can find a new replacement screen using the model number printed on the back side of the original one.
