Removal and Replacement Procedures 5-25
5.8.2 Display Assembly
CAUTION: Do not reuse the hinge screws removed from the previously installed
display. These screws may back out of the display hinges and cause the display
assembly to loosen from the base enclosure.
It is not necessary to separate the display and the top cover unless you are
replacing the display or the top cover. If you are not replacing the top cover or the
display assembly, complete steps 1 through 4 to remove the top cover/display assembly
from the base.
To remove the display assembly, complete the following procedure:
1. Prepare the computer for disassembly (Section 5.3).
2. Remove the hinge covers (Section 5.8.1).
3. Remove the screw 1 holding the ground lugs to the left hinge clutch.
4. Separate the backlight power cable 2 and the display data cable 3 from the system
board. Use a small flat-tipped screwdriver or other instrument to lift the connectors
free of the system board.
Figure 5-23. Disconnecting the Display Cables
NOTE: Do not pull the connector by the wires from the socket. The wires will be
damaged, rendering the display inoperative.
