This guide explains how to replace broken screen on a Lenovo X60s.
The display disassembly procedure will work for some other IBM ThinkPad and Lenovo models. If this guide works for you, please mention the model in the comments.
Before you start, please turn off the computer, unplug the AC adapter and remove the battery.
There are three screw seals on the bottom of the display bezel.
These seals hide three screws securing the display bezel to the display cover.
You’ll have to remove all three seals and screws.
There are three screw seals on each side of the display assembly.
Remove seals and screws from both sides.
Start separating the display bezel from the cover as it shown on the picture below.
Continue separating the bezel.
The inverter board is mounted on the lower part of the display assembly.
In order to access and remove the inverter it’s not necessary to remove the bezel completely.
Finally, the display bezel has been removed.
Disconnect the backlight cable from the inverter board.
Now you can separate the LCD panel from the display cover and access the video cable connector on the back.
Remove clear tape securing the video cable inside the connector.
Unplug the video cable.
Now you can remove the broken LCD screen completely and replace it with a new one.
Search for a replacement screen using the FRU part number from the back of the original one.
