In the following guide I will show how to remove and replace failed LCD screen on HP ENVY 15 laptop.
In this particular case I will disassemble HP ENVY 15-3033cl with a glass bezel.
First of all, make sure the computer is turned off.
We are going to disassemble the display assembly and touch the display cable.
It’s a very good idea (strongly recommended) to disconnect the battery even though it takes a few extra steps.
Unlock and remove the battery cover.
The battery secured to the case by three screws.
These screws located under sticky screw covers.
You can remove the battery screw cover using a sharp object.
I’m not sure why HP covered battery screws.
Remove all three battery screws.
Lift up and remove the battery.
Now you can start separating the glass bezel from the display assembly using a guitar pick (or any other piece of plastic).
Insert the guitar pick between the bezel and back cover and slowly move along the side of the display.
You’ll have to unlock hidden latches.
Continue separating the bezel from the display.
On the bottom side of the display assembly the bezel secured to the cover by a few screws.
In order to access the screws you’ll have to remove the cover.
Using a sharp object remove the cover and after that remove two screws from the left side of the display assembly.
Do the same for the right side of the display assembly.
I was going to remove the glass bezel but noticed that something is holding it on the bottom.
Before you remove the bezel completely it’s necessary to remove both hinge covers.
Close the display assembly and carefully start separating the hinge cover from the case using a small screwdriver.
Remove both hinge covers.
On the following picture you can see both hinge covers removed.
Now you can remove the screen bezel/cover completely.
Remove four screws securing the LCD screen to the display back cover.
Carefully separate the LCD from the display and place it the front side down on the keyboard.
Now you can access the display cable connector on the back.
Remove clear tape securing the connection and unplug the display cable from the LCD.
Remove the damaged/failed LCD and replace it with a new one.
Assemble the notebook following all steps in the reverse order.
You can search for a new replacement screen using the model part number from the original screen.
In my HP ENVY 15 laptop I had this LCD installed: LP156WF4 (SL)(B2).
