In this guide I’ll be removing and replacing the LCD screen and removing the inverter board from a HP Pavilion dv6000 laptop.
As you see on the picture above I’m fixing a HP Pavilion dv6000 series laptop with a bad LCD screen. The lower part of the screen displays garbled image and the upper part works just fine. An external monitor displays image properly. So it’s bad screen and it has to be replaced.
By the way, you’ll find another disassembly guide for the same laptop in my previous post.
There are six rubber screw covers on the LCD screen bezel. You’ll have to remove all covers.
You can remove covers with a sharp object.
Remove six screws found under the rubber covers.
Insert fingers between the screen bezel and display cover and start separating them.
Continue removing the bezel. Be careful, the bezel made of fragile plastic.
The screen bezel has been removed.
Now you can get an access to the screen inverter which is mounted below the screen.
Remove one screw securing the inverter board. Disconnect cables on both sides of the inverter board.
The inverter board has been removed.
Remove two screws securing each display hinge/bracket.
Now you can get an access to the back side of the LCD screen. Remove clear tape covering the connector and disconnect the screen cable from the LCD screen. Simply unplug the cable from the connector.
Remove two screws from each side of the screen. These screws securing the display hinges/brackets to the screen.
Now you can remove the defective LCD screen and replace it with a new one. You can find a new LCD screen for HP Pavilion dv6000 laptop here for less than $80.
