|Remove HP Pavilion DV2000 Laptop Battery|
Remove the Hp Pavilion Dv2000 series laptop battery before starting the repair.
Remove rubber covers to expose screws in the plastic bezel.
Use a precision screwdriver to remove all the screws in the screen front. Keep the screws aside safely.
Put a flat piece or screwdriver between the bezel and backcover to start the job of removing the front bezel.
Remove the plastic beze carefully from the front. The HP Pavilion HP pavilion DV2000, DV2500, DV2510, DV2700 and DV2900 series bezels are very fragile and can snap if not removed with care.
Pull the screen towards you slightly and remove all the sidescrews.
Place the screen down on the keyboard area and at this point the connectors to the back of the screen and the display cable will be visible. This is the cable that carries the data from the motherboard to the LCD screen.
Carefully pull the screen cable away from you to disconnect it from the 30 pin port. Some of the connection may be held down with a clear tape. Peel off the tape before doing the diconnection.
Disconnect the screen backlight wires from the inverter. The inverter provides brightness to the screen. If your laptop screen has gone dark, black or blank this piece of electronic will be responsible and will need changing to restore the backlight of the LCD Screen.
The screen dismantle and removal process is complete. Install a new screen in the same way but this time in reverse procedure.
