In this guide I’ll be removing and replacing the LCD screen on an Acer Aspire 5830TG-6782 laptop.
Most likely you can use this guide for other models in the Acer Aspire line. If it works for your laptop please mention the model number in comments after the post.
First of all make sure the laptop is turned off.
Using a sharp object remove the screw cover located in the lower left corner of the screen bezel.
After that remove the screw.
Remove the screw cover from the right side of the screen bezel.
Remove the screw.
Insert your fingers between the bezel and screen and start separating the bezel.
You’ll have to wiggle the bezel in order to unlock hidden latches securing the bezel. Also, you can use a guitar pick or any other piece of plastic to separate the bezel.
Continue removing the screen bezel on the top side of the display assembly.
Lift up the right hinge cover which is part of the screen bezel.
Do the same with the left cover.
Separate and remove the screen bezel from the laptop display.
Remove four screw securing the LCD screen to the display back cover.
Carefully separate the screen from the back cover and place the screen front side down on the keyboard.
On the back side of the screen you can access the video cable which is plugged into the screen.
Remove sticky tape securing the connection.
Disconnect the video cable connector from the connector on the screen.
Remove the LCD screen. It’s ready for the replacement.
The best way to find a new compatible screen is searching by the model number from the original screen.
In my Acer Aspire 5830TG-6782 laptop I had the following screen installed: B156XW04 v.5
This screen is available here. It’s possible that earlier versions of the screen will work just fine but I’m not sure 100%. Just in case I would confirm that with the seller.
Now you can replace the screen and assemble the laptop following all disassembly steps in the reverse direction.
