A broken Lenovo IdeaPad Y470 screen can be a source of great annoyance and frustration.Though daunting at first, however, the laptop screen replacement process requires very little technical expertise.

Lenovo IdeaPad Y470 screen replacement 

Step one 

Before starting your repair, turn off your machine, remove the battery and ensure that you have disconnected all peripheral devices, (such as speakers.) You should also make sure that you have unplugged your laptop from the mains power. When you are ready to begin, use a flat edged implement to prise the aesthetic covers away from the bottom two corners of the front bezel. Underneath these covers, you'll find two screws. Remove these also and, set them aside safely.

Step two 

Next, prise the front bezel away from the screen casing, (taking care not to snap it in the process.) Work your way around the edges of the front bezel, loosening it. Once you have loosened it sufficiently, remove it from the laptop and, set it aside safely. 

Step three 

The exposed screen is held in place, (in each corner,) by 4 further screws, (1 in each corner.)

Step four 

Once you've removed these screws, take hold of the damaged Lenovo IdeaPad Y470 screen and pull it towards you, laying it, face down, on the keyboard in front. At the bottom, (and back,) of the screen, you should see a cable attached. Disconnect this cable, (pulling back any adhesive or tape securing it, if necessary.) You should now be able to remove the broken Lenovo IdeaPad Y470 screen from the machine. To fit your newly bought replacement screen, all you need to do is complete the above instructions in reverse.
