Replacing a Fujitsu LifeBook Screen

Am I able to fix my broken Fujitsu LifeBook screen?

Laptop screens are extremely fragile and are often easily damaged. Unfortunately, there is no cure, per se, for a broken Fujitsu LifeBook screen. However, laptop screen replacement is surprisingly simple and, it requires very little technical expertise. Below, we provide detailed instructions on how to replace your broken Fujitsu LifeBook screen yourself.

How to replace a Fujitsu LifeBook screen

Step one 

Before undertaking the repair, ensure that you have disconnected your Futijsu LifeBook machine from the mains power and, that you have removed the battery from the bottom. You should also make sure that you have disconnected any (and all) peripheral devices, (such as speakers and hard drives.) Once you have ensured that your machine is disconnected from all sources of power, you in a position to begin.

Step two 

Next, remove the screws holding the plastics surrounding the broken screen in place, Often, these screws are hidden by plastic covers. Prise these off with care, (so as to avoid breaking them.) Once you are sure you have located (and removed) all of the plastic covers, use a small screwdriver to remove all of the screws holding the front bezel in place. Note that the number of screws vary according to LifeBook model: on some machines you’ll find four screws at the top of the bezel and two at the bottom, whilst, on others, you’ll find two at the top and two at the bottom. Once you are sure that you have removed all of the screws holding the front bezel in place, gently pull it free from the machine, (taking care not to snap it in the process.)

Step three 

Next, locate and remove the screws on the front hinges that connect the surrounding plastics to the laptop. Once you’ve done that, you should be in position to gain access to the broken Fujitsu LifeBook screen. Remove any (and all) of the screws that connect the damaged screen to the laptop. Then, gently pull the screen towards you and let it rest on the keyboard. At the top (and back) of the screen, you should see a ribbon like cable. Disconnect it. In the space where the old screen sat, you should see the inverter board, (with a cable attached.) Disconnect this cable also. You should now be in a position to remove the broken screen from the body of the machine. 

Step four 

To fit the replacement screen, simply work through the above instructions in reverse. It is really that simple! Congratulations, you have successfully replaced your broken Fujitsu LifeBook screen!
