How to Replace the Screen in a Sony Vaio VGN-SZ645

Can I replace my Sony Vaio VGN-SZ645 screen?

Though rather daunting at first, laptop screen replacement requires very little technical expertise. In fact, some of our customers have managed to replace their laptop screen in just half an hour! Below, we guide yout through the Sony Vaio VGN-SZ45 screen replacement process. 

Replacing a Sony Vaio VGN-SZ645 

Step one 

Before beginning your repair, unplug your laptop from the mains power, remove the battery and disconnect any, (and all,) peripheral devices, (such as memory sticks, hard drives and/or speakers.) When you are ready to begin, use a flat edged implement, (such as a razor or a guitar plectrum,) to prise the aesthetic covers (used to hide screws in each corner of the plastics surrounding the display) off of the front bezel. Once you've removed the aesthetic covers from the front bezel, remove the screws underneath and, set them aside safely.

Step two 

Once you have removed each of the screws, use a flat edged implement or your fingers to prise the front bezel away from the screen casing. Note: take care when removing the front bezel, so as to avoid snapping it in the process. Once you've removed the front bezel from your laptop, you should see the broken Sony Vaio VGN-SZ645 held in a metal holding frame. Take hold of the top of the exposed screen and pull it towards you, laying it to rest, face down, on the keyboard in front. 

Step three 

On the back of the screen, you should see a large cable attached. Disconnect this cable. At the very bottom of the screen, you should see a thin board of electronics. This is the inverter. Proceed by disconnecting the cable that runs into the right hand side of the inverter board.

Step four 

Once you have completed these steps, you should be able to remove the broken Sony Vaio VGN-SZ645 screen from your laptop. To fit your newly bought replacement screen, all you need to do is complete the above, step by step instructions in reverse order.
