How to replace screen on Acer Aspire 4830

posted in: 1. Acer | 0



In this guide I explain how to replace damaged LCD screen on an Acer Aspire 4830 series laptop (Model No. P4LJ0).

In this particular case I’ll be replacing it on an Acer Aspire 4830T-6678 model.

Make sure the computer is turned off and battery removed before you start taking it apart.

STEP 1.

Using a sharp object remove the screw cover located in the lower left corner of the display bezel.

Remove the screw.

STEP 2.

Remove one more screw cover from the lower right corner of the bezel.

Remove the screw.

STEP 3.

Now start separating the bezel from the display back cover on the top side of the display.

I’m using the guitar pick for that. You can use any other piece of plastic.

Insert the guitar pick between the bezel and back cover and slowly move it along the side.

STEP 4.

Insert your fingers under the bezel and wiggle it to unlock hidden latches.

STEP 5.

Continue separating the bezel on the top of the display.

STEP 6.

After that move to the lower side of the display assembly.

As you see the hinge cover is part of the screen bezel.

STEP 7.

Remove the bezel.

STEP 8.

The LCD is secured to the back cover by four screws.

Remove all four screws.

STEP 9.

Separate the LCD from the display back cover and place it the front side down on the keyboard/palmrest assembly.

STEP 10.

Now you can access the video cable connector.

STEP 11.

Carefully unglue the sticky tape securing the video cable.

STEP 12.

Unplug the video cable from the screen.

STEP 13.

Remove the damaged screen. It’s ready for the replacement.

In my Acer Aspire 4830T I had the following LCD installed: BT140GW03.

Assemble the laptop following all disassembly steps in the reverse direction.
