In this guide I explain how to remove and replace the LCD screen on a Dell Latitude D620 laptop.
All removal steps will be very similar for many other Dell models. If this guide works for you, please mention the model number in comments after the post.
There are six screw seals on the LCD bezel. Remove all six seals and screws found under them.
You can remove the screw seal with a sharp object or small flat head screwdriver. The seal bottom is sticky. Glue all screw seals somewhere so they don’t get lost.
Start separating the bezel from display cover with your fingers.
Remove the bezel.
Remove six screws securing the screen mounting brackets to the display cover.
Separate the LCD assembly from the display cover and place face down on the keyboard.
Now you can access the video cable on the back.
The video cable has two connectors. One of them is connected to the inverter board and another one to the screen.
Disconnect the small connector from the inverter.
Disconnect another connector from the LCD.
Remove the screen from the laptop.
You’ll have to transfer both mounting brackets to the new screen. Each bracket is secured by a few screws.
Some Dell screens have the inverter board is attached to the frame.
It’s possible to remove the inverter and replace it separately.
