How to Replace a HP Pavilion Screen

Am I able to fix my broken HP Pavilion screen?

We often assume that technology related repairs will be hopelessly complex and difficult to understand but, in fact, laptop screen replacement is far easier than you might think. Below, you’ll find instructions, (and resources,) that will help guide you through the HP Pavilion screen replacement process.   

Replacing a broken HP Pavilion screen

Step one 

Firstly, before replacing your broken HP Pavilion screen, remove your laptop’s battery and unplug your machine from the mains power. Be sure, also, to check that you have disconnected any devices, (such as speakers or drives,) connected to your machine.

Step two 

Once you’ve removed, (and disconnected your laptop from,) all possible power sources, use a small screwdriver to remove the screws holding the front bezel in place. Take care: sometimes, these screws are hidden under aesthetic covers.

Step three

Once you have removed all of the screws holding the front bezel in place, gently pull it away from the broken screen. Proceed with caution: the front bezel can often be brittle. Towards the bottom of the damaged screen, you should see the inverter board. Unplug the cable that connects the damaged screen to this board.

Step four 

Next, gently pull the broken screen towards you. Connected to the top (and back) of the screen, you should find a ribbon like cable. Disconnect it. Next, remove all of the screws holding the broken screen in its metal holding frame. You should now be able to remove the damaged screen from your laptop.

Step five

Fit the new screen into the metal holding frame using the screws you removed during the previous step. To complete the repair, simply perform the above instructions in reverse.
