How to Replace the Screen on an Acer Chromebook C710

Can I replace my Acer Chromebook C710 screen?

We understand how frustrating it can be when you break your Acer Chromebook C710 screen. However, contrary to popular belief, laptop screen replacement requires very little technical expertise. In fact, some of our customers have managed to replace their broken screen in just half an hour! Below, you'll find step by step instructions that will help guide you through the Acer Chromebook C710 screen replacement process. 

Replacing an Acer Chromebook C710 screen 

Step one

Before beginning your repair, turn off your laptop, remove the battery and disconnect any, (and all,) peripheral devices, (such as speakers, memory sticks and/or hard drives.) Next, lay the damaged Acer Chromebook screen on a flat surface and use a flat-edged implement to gently prise the top corners of the front bezel, (held in place with plastic clips,) away from the broken display. You will also need to use a flat edged implement to gently prise the bottom part of the front bezel away from the damaged display.

Step two 

Once you are sure that you have sufficiently loosened the front bezel, gently remove it from the body of the machine and set it aside safely. Having removed the front bezel, you should see four screws holding the broken Acer Chromebook C710 screen in place. Remove these screws using a Philips screwdriver and set them aside safely. You should also see two strips of dark tape, (at the bottom of the damaged display.) Peel back these strips, also.   

Step three

Next, lift the exposed Acer Chromebook C710 screen up and lay it, face down, on the keyboard. At the top, (and back,) of the screen, you should see a ribbon like cable. Disconnect the thin, black cable covering the ribbon-like cable, and, then peel back the transparent adhesive covering the dock of the ribbon-like cable. You should now be able to disconnect the ribbon-like cable altogether. Once you have checked to make sure that the broken screen is not being held in place by any more strips of tape or adhesive, you should be able to lift it out of the holding frame and set it aside. 

Step four 

To fit your newly bought replacement screen, all you need to do is complete the above instructions in reverse, (taking care to re-attach and, an all, strips of tape.)
