Having a computer technician repair a cracked or malfunctioning Toshiba laptop screen can be quite costly. Luckily, this is a simple do-it-yourself project that you can do even if you are not a technical expert. This will save you the cost of having to ship your laptop to the repair shop and for the actual repairs. Grab a Phillips screwdriver, a knife, a cup and a replacement Toshiba laptop screen and let’s get started.
This entire project takes less than 30 minutes to do. First, shut down your laptop and remove the battery. Next, take note of the frame around the laptop’s screen. This frame is being held in place with screws. If you look closely, you’ll notice that there are screw covers over the screws themselves. Using the tip of a knife, remove the screw covers. Use your Phillips screwdriver to loosen the screws. Put the screws and the screw covers in your cup.
The third step is to remove the frame. Simply lift the frame and remove it from the laptop. Next, unplug the inverter cable from the inverter. You can find the inverter at the bottom of the screen. The fifth step involves removing the rest of the screws that is holding the screen in place. You will need your Phillips screwdriver again to complete this task. Don’t forget to put the screws in your cup.
Then, remove the broken screen. Slide your replacement screen into the computer and plug in the inverter cable. Replace the screws that were holding the screen in place.
Get the laptop frame and place it over the new replacement screen. Tighten the screws with your screwdriver and click the screw covers back into place. You can now put your battery back and turn your laptop on to see how your new Toshiba laptop screen performs.
