How to replace screen on Lenovo G560

posted in: 6. IBM & Lenovo | 16



In this post I explain how to replace LCD screen on Lenovo G560 laptop.

My Lenovo G560 had an LED-backlit LCD installed. I’ll explain how to search for a compatible replacement the end of this post.

Before you start the disassembly process make sure it’s turned off and battery removed.

STEP 1.

You’ll have to remove six screw covers located on the front bezel.

Two covers on the lower part of the bezel and four more covers on the upper part of the bezel.

You can remove screw covers with a sharp object.

After all covers removed, remove six screws.

STEP 2.

Insert your fingers under the bezel as it shown on the following picture.

Wiggle the bezel a little bit and start separating it from the back cover.

There are hidden plastic latches securing the bezel.

STEP 3.

Continue separating the bezel on the display sides.

You can use a small piece of soft plastic for that. Insert it between the bezel and back cover and slowly move along the side. At the same time continue removing the bezel with your fingers.

STEP 4.

The bezel has been removed.

STEP 5.

Carefully separate the LCD assembly from the back cover so you can access screws on the side.

Remove four screw on the right side of the display.

STEP 6.

Separate the LCD assembly from the back cover and place it face down on the keyboard.

STEP 7.

Now you can access the video cable.

STEP 8.

Remove sticky tape securing the connection.

Unplug the video cable connector.

STEP 9.

Now you should be able to remove the screen from the laptop and replace it with a new one.

The best way to find a new compatible screen would be searching by the model number from original one.

My Lenovo G560 laptop had the following LCD installed: model No: B156XW02 v.2

    @ HOSSEIN,

    plz tell me how to do if s/n and p/n hp dv5t-1000 cleared

    Are you replacing the screen? You can remove the screen and search for the model number on the back.

    If you need to recover the laptop serial number and part number, look in the BIOS menu. Both numbers could be located in there.

    Hello,
    I have a Lenovo T410s. The cracked screen and broken bezel were replaced by an IBM on-site tech person. The screen was then dim. He called IBM and they told him that it since the screen was cracked he should not have replaced it. He left it anyway but the screen is dark and dim. The tech thought it was the inverter. Can I replace the inverter alone? Is it that difficult to do?
    Thank you!

    @ Greg Jesson,

    I believe that Lenovo T410s laptops come with a LED backlit LCD screen. It means there is NO INVERTER board. The LCD screen connected directly to the motherboard, without the inverter.
    Just in case, here’s a guide for removing the LCD screen from a Lenovo T410 laptop.

    You said the screen was cracked. Did you have backlight on the cracked screen or was it completely dark?

  9. Hello,
    Thank you for your response. I was told by the tech that it must be a faulty inverter, so I’m puzzled. The screen before replacement was bright but jumbled with vertical lines. Would your advice just be to get another screen? Some of the suppliers seem to imply that there is an inverter also. Is this a mistake?
    Cordially,
    Greg

    Greg,

    I was told by the tech that it must be a faulty inverter

    I guess your laptop came with a CCFL which requires the inverter board. I hope the Lenovo tech knows what he’s talking about. :)

    before replacement was bright but jumbled with vertical lines. Would your advice just be to get another screen?

    It’s hard to tell what’s going on without testing the laptop.
    If the new LCD doesn’t have backlight (and the cracked one had it), this could be one of the following:
    1. The new replacement LCD from Lenovo is defective.
    2. The new LCD wasn’t connected properly. Maybe bad connection between the video cable and LCD or motherboard.

    Here’s what I would do. I would try to install the old screen back into the laptop to see if it has the backlight. If it has, I would try installing the new one again. If the new one has no backlight, probably it’s defective screen or the inverter board failed.
