In this guide I explain how to remove and replace the LCD screen in a Dell Latitude D620 laptop.
The LCD screen removal steps will be very similar for many other Dell laptop. If this guide works for your laptop, please mention the model number in comments after the post.
If you need a new LCD screen or inverter for your Dell Latitude D620 laptop, you can find it here for about $70-80.
There are six screw seals on the LCD screen 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 on the screen bezel so they don’t get lost.
Start separating the screen bezel from display cover with your fingers.
Remove the screen bezel.
Remove six screws securing the LCD screen mounting brackets to the display cover.
Separate the LCD screen assembly from the display cover and place face down on the keyboard.
Now you can access the back side of the LCD screen and video cable.
The video cable has two connectors. One of them is connected to the inverter board and another one to the LCD screen.
Disconnect the small connector from the inverter board.
Disconnect another connector from the LCD screen.
Remove the LCD screen assembly from the laptop.
If you are replacing the LCD screen, you’ll have to transfer both mounting brackets to the new screen. Each bracket is secured by a few screws.
In Dell laptops the inverter board is attached to the bottom of the LCD screen.
Even though it looks like the inverter board is a part of the LCD screen, it’s possible to remove the inverter and replace it separately.
