In this guide I show how to remove and replace the LCD screen on an Acer Aspire 5520 laptop.
Also, you can use this guide for removing and replacing the inverter board.
Before you start, make sure it’s turned off and battery removed.
On the front bezel there are four rubber screw covers.
Under those covers you’ll find screws securing it to the display cover.
You can remove screw covers with a sharp object.
All covers has sticky bottom. You can glue them somewhere so they don’t get lost during the disassembly process.
Start separating the bezel from the display cover.
I’m using a guitar pick as a case cracker.
Continue separating the bezel.
Carefully lift it up and separate from the hinge.
The bezel has been removed.
The inverter board mounted on the bottom of the display assembly.
Remove four screws on the bottom.
Disconnect cable from the web camera module located on the top of the display assembly.
Now you can separate the LCD assembly from the display cover and place it face down on the keyboard.
On the back side of the scree you’ll find the video cable.
Unplug the video cable.
Disconnect one cable from the right side of the inverter.
Remove four screws from the right hinge bracket.
Remove four more screws from the left side.
Now you can remove the LCD screen and replace it with a new one.
The original screen in my Acer Aspire 5520 was made by Chi Mei Optoelectronics and had the following model number: N154l2-L05.
