How to replace Acer 5520 LCD panel
If your laptop lcd panel can’t work, check it first, if it was broken, replace it. You needn’t take it to the repair shop now, with this acer 5520 lcd replacement guide, you can solve it yourself. Replacing a broken laptop lcd panel is more often than not, a very easy project.
If you have a broken screen, don’t jump on eBay and sell it for considerably less than it’s worth. Instead, go to udtek.com and try to find the replacement LCD Panel, the entire cover for your laptop, or even better, your laptop with a blown motherboard but intact screen! The latter case, you not only get a new acer 5520 lcd panel, but extra memory, a backup hard drive and perhaps even a Wi-Fi card you didn’t have before. It helps to know your computer. If you don’t, do your research first. Some laptops have the LCD glued (epoxies) into the frame. In these cases it’s usually much easier to replace the whole cover. Most don’t have this problem though.
What we’ll need, besides the replacement acer 5520 lcd panel of course, are the tools to open the display enclosure. In this case, we’ll need a tiny magnetic Phillips screwdriver, a size 1.5 Allen wrench and something to pry apart the snap together frame. The later can be a couple of small (tiny) flat edged screwdrivers, a metal ruler or paint scraper with the edge filed to a sharper edge, etc. In my case, I use the tools that were included with a laptop battery replacement. The tools alone were worth the cost of the laptop battery!
Anytime we work on a computer, it’s best to remove all sources of power first. In this case, that includes the power supply and the laptop battery. The next step is to remove the cover. Examine around the acer 5520 lcd panel. Look at all the metal and plastic parts. In some cases, the screws will be obvious.
Now, locate the screws along the sides of the acer 5520 lcd panel. There will be four to six of them and only on the sides. There’s usually a nice notch in the casing allowing easy access to those screws. Remove connectors as you can access them. In this case, the display connector is under the metal tape on the back shield. There’s also the inverter wire for the backlight in the lower left corner. Use a tiny screwdriver or tweezers to get these connectors free.
Try to avoid touching the face of the acer 5520 lcd panel. Some laptops have another screen in front of the LCD. This would make it hard to remove fingerprints! Note that the shield behind the LCD is sometimes a little tricky to fit. Take your time and make sure it’s reinstalled the same way it was originally. Replace connectors and tape wherever possible. Add tape if you need to. Also assure that all wires are where they belong. We really don’t want to pinch and damage wires when we put the cover on. When all these finished, don’t forget to test it.
