Dell Inspiron 1545 Screen Replacement, Removal and Repair

Don’t Put Off Dell Inspiron 1545 Screen Replacement and Repairs

Finally getting around to replacing damaged Dell laptop and Dell netbook screens can feel a little like finally getting the balding tyres on your car replaced – surely one more day will be fine? But, as with car tyres, there is a point at with it becomes dangerous and foolhardy to put off repairs. We have included a video below to aid replacing a broken Dell Inpiron 1545 screen.

Whatever caused the crack in your Dell laptop screen, it’s not going to heal itself by magic. A computer that’s rarely moved tends to outlast one carried on the commute, but in both cases the crack will do nothing less than spread, becoming more of a hindrance to usability and internal function.

Dell Laptop and netbook screens are very, very sensitive. If your laptop appears to be in working order after a hole has been created in the screen, it’s living on borrowed time! A hole in the laptop screen means environmental detritus and dirt can easily enter the internal area of your computer, perhaps damaging it irreparably.

Stability Issues
A badly-fitted or loose Dell laptop display isn’t just frustrating; it can contribute to some pretty serious internal component issues within your laptop. It could be that an issue with your laptop’s hinges has led to the screen’s structural integrity. Tightening the hinges using manufacturer-recommended methods may help restore the stability of your laptop screen. However, if the problem does not lie with the hinges, a Dell replacement screen is the only way to provide protection from external factors whilst re-establishing the highest level of usability.

Broken Sony Vaio Laptop Screen

The very first thing to do is to get the right 
replacement screen for your laptop. To easily 
order a replacement screen for the Sony Vaio 
VGN-NW series go to sony vaio VGN-NW series.

Usually to replace a laptop screen tools that are needed are precision screwdrivers and the LCD screen only.

One of the very most important thing when carrying
 out  laptop screens replacement is to remove the 
laptop battery before starting anything as if this is 
not done may cause more problems. So remove the 
battery and only use it if you have to test the screen 
during the replacement.

Remove rubber covers to expose screws

This image on the left shows how you will take 
the screw covers off which will then expose 
the screws holding down the bezel to the top 
part of the laptop. Remove the screws too and 
keep them safe.

The next thing is to place your fingers between 
the Sony Vaio screen and the bezel and start 
pulling slightly on all the sides until the bezel is 
pulled free from the laptop. This needs to be 
done carefully as shown in the images below.

The best trick is to pull up to remove bezel

For most Sony Vaios the bezel will be hard 
to remove. The trick is to pull up as in the image
 on the right. Sony Vaio  bezels are very fragile 
and can easily snap so do this with care. You 
must not pull too hard.

Looking at the picture below it is then time to remove the side screws holding the screen to the hinges arms. 
This is the major structure of the internal part of the screen mechanism whereby if this part is not well 
screwed back after the screen repair may result in the screen cracking on every impact. When removing 
the screws make sure they are well places so as not to have them mixed up.
Unscrew side screws holding the screen

Place the screen flat on the keyboard area and the picture below is what you will see. At the back of the screen is a ribbon cable called the screen data cable. The screen data cable transmits all that goes on at the lower part (motherboard area) of the laptop to the screen. There is also another cable called the inverter cable. This is at the bottom area of the screen and it connects to a small board called the inverter. The job of this cable and the inverter is to produce bright light to the screen whereby if the inverter or the backlight connector is damaged, the screen WILL WORK but there will be no bright light to the screen. 

Carefully remove yellow tape, pull up the clear tape and carry out the data disconnection as below. 
This must be done with care as any mistake may cause a permanent damage to the cable or the connector.

The next thing is to remove the inverter connection by pulling as in the images below.

The screen removal process is complete. To replace the screen you now need to carry out the 
instruction in a reverse order. 

Only buy original screens for laptops as regular screens may not give you same quality and screen brightness control.

Hope this has helped you to replace your broken Sony Vaio Laptop Screen. Leave us a feedback by 
commenting and if you have any questions also use the comment form and I will reply you personally.

The ABCs of Replacing the Damaged Screen of a Laptop

Okay, you had triped and injured yourself. In the process, you also dropped the laptop that you were carrying at that point in time. As a result of the fall, the laptop screen is now broken and you cannot see any display, only cracks, lines and black bleeds. So, what are the options you can consider?

First of all, before you end up paying for the laptop replacement screen , find out if it is indeed the problem with the screen and not the system. You can determine this by connecting your notebook to an external monitor and seeing if it works. If it cannot see the windows running in the external monitor, then it is the problem with your notebook. However, if you can, you can be sure that the screen has been damaged.

There are also many helpful websites that provide information about replacing the damaged screen. Following the instructions carefully will help you fix the screen and get working at the earlies.

Remove all screw cover
(usually made of platic or rubber)
Remove all screws from the LCD bezel (frame). Make sure all screws have been removed because sometimes the bezel has screws in the sides of the lid.
From the lower area, gently push your fingers between the damaged LCD/LED panel and the bazel and pull gently, unlucking the mechanism holding the damaged screen inside. Do this all around the bazel until it is free from the locks.
Now that the bazel is successfully removed, gently pull the top side of the screen away from the screen cover and start undoing the screws on the sides to free the screen from the holders.
Place a piece of paper or cloth on the keyboard and place the screen gently on it.
Carefully pull the display cable from the plug.
Note that for some laptops you may have to hold on to a catch to be able to pull - release the cable from the plug (examples are Dell laptops)
Finally unplug the lighting cable from the inverter (Please do this with care)
The damaged screen removal process is complete. All you need to do now is fit the new screen by folowing the instruction in reverse order.
