In this guide I explain how to remove and replace a damaged LCD screen in a HP Pavilion dv2000 notebook. This guide should work for all models in Pavilion dv2000 line.
Before you start, please turn off the laptop, unplug the power adapter and remove the battery.
The LCD screen is mounted between the display cover and bezel. The screen bezel is secured to the display cover by six screws hidden under six screw seals. I circled these screw seals.
Remove all seals with a sharp object and after that remove all screws found under the seals.
Start separating the screen bezel from the display cover on one of the top corners.
Continue separating the screen bezel.
Remove the screen bezel.
The inverter board works as a power supply for the backlight lamp hidden inside the LCD screen. In most notebooks the inverter board is mounted below the LCD screen. In my guide I will not be removing the inverter board and because of that I will unplug only one cable from the right side.
Remove four screws securing the display hinges to the cover.
Carefully separate the display assembly from the cover and place the LCD face down on the keyboard.
Now you can access the LCD cable (video cable) connector. The LCD cable connects the screen to the the motherboard.
Unplug the LCD cable from the screen.
Remove the LCD screen assembly from the notebook. As you can see, the screen still has two mounting brackets attached to the left and right sides.
In order to remove the mounting bracket, simply remove three screws. Transfer the bracket to the new screen.
