Today I show how to remove and replace broken LCD screen on HP Pavilion dv6 laptop.
With instructions shown in this guide you should be able do the following laptop repairs: replace LCD screen, change video cable, replace broken hinges, etc…
The display panel can be disassembled only when it’s separated from the laptop base. Follow steps 1-18 in my first HP Pavilion dv6 disassembly guide.
You’ll find two screw covers in the lower left and right corners of the display panel.
Remove both covers with a sharp object and glue somewhere on the bezel (so they don’t get lost).
Remove both screws found under those covers.
Carefully separate the screen bezel from the display cover.
You can use a guitar pick as case cracker.
Continue separating screen bezel with your fingers.
Using same guitar pick (or any other piece of plastic) separate bezel from the cover on the bottom of the display panel.
Remove screen bezel.
Remove eight screws securing LCD screen mounting brackets to the display cover.
Carefully separate the LCD screen assembly from the display cover and place it face down on the table.
Now you can access the video cable connector on the back side of the LCD screen.
Disconnect video cable from the LCD screen.
Now you can separate the LCD screen assembly from the display cover.
Finally, remove mounting brackets (hinges) on both sides of the broken LCD screen and transfer them to a new LCD screen.
