How to Replace an Acer Extensa Screen

Replacing an Acer Extensa screen

Laptop screens are incredibly fragile and, they are often easily damaged. In replacing your broken Acer Extensa screen yourself, however, you could save valuable time and money. Below, you'll find detailed instructions that will help guide you through the Acer Extensa screen replacement process. 

How to replace an Acer Extensa screen 

Step one 

Before you begin your repair, unplug you laptop, remove the battery and, ensure that you have disconnected any, (and all,) peripheral devices, (such as speakers, memory sticks and/or hard drives.) Next, gently prise off the plastic pads covering the screws on the front bezel. Once you have removed, (and set aside,) the aesthetic covers, remove the srews hidden underneath with a Philips screwdriver. 

Step two 

Once you have located and removed all of the screws holding the front bezel in place, gently prise it away from the body of the machine, (taking care not to snap it in the process.) You should see a number of screws holding the damaged Acer Extensa screen in place. Remove these, also, and, set them aside safely. Once you have removed all of the screws holding the LCD in place, gently pull the damaged screen towards you; laying it on the keyboard.

Step three 

At the back, (and top,) of the screen, you should see a ribbon like cable held in place by a strip of tape. Disconnect this cable from the back of the damaged display by peeling back the tape holding it in place.

Step four 

You should now be able to remove the broken Acer Extensa screen from the body of the machine. To fit your newly bought replacement, simply complete the above instructions in reverse.
