In this guide I show how to access, remove and replace the LCD screen on a Dell Inspiron N5110 (Inspiron 15R) laptop.
If you need instructions for taking apart the laptop base, check out my previous disassembly guide for Dell Inspiron N5110 laptop.
First of all, make sure the laptop is turned off and battery removed.
In this model there are NO screws securing the screen bezel.
Insert your fingers under the screen bezel on the top of the display assembly and start separating them.
You’ll have to wiggle the bezel in order to separate it from the display back cover.
A piece of soft plastic (I’m using the guitar) will be very useful while separating the screen bezel.
Insert it between the bezel and display back cover and slowly move along the side. At the same time wiggle the bezel.
Continue removing the screen bezel with your fingers.
The screen bezel removed.
Remove two screws securing the LCD screen on the top of the display assembly.
Carefully separate the LCD screen from the back cover and unplug the web camera cable.
Remove two screws securing the LCD screen to the right mounting bracket.
Remove two screws securing the LCD screen to the left mounting bracket.
Separate the LCD screen from the display back cover and place it the front side down on the keyboard.
Now you can access the video harness. As you see, the web camera cable and video cable bundled together.
Unglue the web camera cable from the screen.
Remove sticky tape securing the video cable connector.
Unplug the video cable connector from the screen.
Now you can remove the LCD screen from the laptop and replace it with a new screen.
Assemble the laptop following all disassembly steps in the reverse direction.
The best way to find a new replacement LCD screen is searching by the model number printed on the back of the original screen.
My Dell Inspiron N5110 laptop had the following screen installed: N156B6-L0b Rev. C1.
I found replacement screen here for about $60.
If you have a different model number just search for it.
