In this guide I explain how to replace broken screen on HP 2000 laptop. In my case the screen was accidentally damaged and the image disappeared completely.
To be precise, I’m working on an HP 2000-210US laptop.
I would suggest making some notes during the disassembly process about screw locations. Some screws have different length. Your notes will be helpful when you assemble the laptop back together.
Turn off the laptop and remove the battery.
Using a sharp object remove the screw cover located in the lower left corner of the display.
Remove the screw.
Remove the screw cover in the lower right corner.
Remove the screw.
Insert your fingers between the LCD screen bezel and back cover and start separating the bezel.
Remove the screen bezel.
Remove one screw securing the left hinge cover.
Using a small screwdriver pull the hing cover and remove it.
Remove one screw securing the right hinge cover.
Remove the right hinge cover.
Remove six screws securing the LCD screen assembly to the display cover.
Separate back cover from the LCD screen.
Now you can access the video cable connector located on the back side of the screen.
Remove clear tape securing the connection.
Disconnect the video cable connector from the LCD screen connector.
Remove three screws securing the LCD screen to the right hinge bracket.
Remove three more screws on the left side.
Now you can remove and replace the damaged LCD screen.
When you are searching for a new replacement screen, do not confuse HP 2000 with HP dv2000. They are two different models.
Assemble the laptop back together following instructions from step 14 to step 1.
I had some trouble connecting the screen bezel to the cover on the lower part of the display. The bezel didn’t click back on place.
Here’s how I did it.
I placed the laptop upside down and pushed on the screen bezel with a plastic stick. While pushing on the bezel, I moved the stick from one side to another and the screen bezel clicked back in place.
