The Toshiba Equium and Satellite L350, L350D, P300, P300D, P100, P200, P200D, and P30 laptop series screen removal and replacement process can be a daunting job for many as it requires dismantling the notebook with care and replacing the cracked/broken or flickering monitor panel with a working new one.
In this instruction guide I will show you how easy this can be done and also done successfully by anybody with even the slightest experience with computers and repairs.
In this screen repair process I am using a Toshiba Satellite P300 laptop screen to replace the damaged one in the laptop. As advised in many of my blogs it is best to acquire the replacement screen you need before starting the repair. Below are links to the screens for all the 17.1 inch widescreens Toshiba models;

The laptops will come with their regular hyphenated numbers at the bottom of the laptop but this does not affect the fact that they all come with a 17.1 inch widescreen LCD screen. Below are some of the numbers
L350-277, L350-203, L350-20G, L350-170, L350-171, L350-10L, L350D-12M, L350D-11D, L350-17P

Remove the Toshiba Laptop battery before starting the screen replacement.
Look for all the plastic or rubber covers on the front and use a flat screwdriver to remove them all. This will expose the screws to the laptop screen.
Remove all the screws you can find in the front and keep them safe.
Remove the screen bezel by carefully pulling it away from the laptop.
To completely remove the bezel for the Toshiba Satellite L350, L350D, P100, P200, P200D, P300, P300D, P30 series pull upwards at the hinges area.
Pull the screen towards you a little and remove all the screws on the sides of the bracket. Use the image on the left as a guide.
Place the screen face-down after the sidescrews are out and at this point the screen ribbon cable and inverter connection can be seen.
Peel up the clear tape holding the cable connection to the port and diconnect it.
Disconnect the connection to the inverter carefully. For some of the toshiba model you may need to unscrew the screw holding the inverter before diconnecting the backlight cable.
At this point the screen removal process is complete.
