A cracked LCD is no fun at all. Colors go wonky, things don't look right, it's an overall bad experience. Mysterious white lines and faded displays can often be fixed by replacing the LCD. Use this guide to help you out.

  1. MacBook Pro 15" Unibody Mid 2010 Matte LCD Replacement, Lower Case: passo 1, imagem 1 %32
    • Remove the following ten screws securing the lower case to the upper case:

    • Three 13.5 mm (14.1 mm) Phillips screws.

    • Seven 3 mm Phillips screws.

    • When removing these screws, note how they come out at a slight angle. They must be reinstalled the same way.

    • Using both hands, lift the lower case near the vent to pop it off two clips securing it to the upper case.

    • Remove the lower case and set it aside.

  3. MacBook Pro 15" Unibody Mid 2010 Matte LCD Replacement, Battery: passo 3, imagem 1 %32
    • Remove the two 7.4 mm Tri-point screws securing the battery to the upper case.

    • Note: For certain repairs (e.g. hard drive), removing the battery is not necessary but it prevents any accidental shorting of electronics on the motherboard. If you do not remove the battery, please be careful as parts of the motherboard might be electrified.

    • You do not necessarily have to follow steps 3-6 to remove the battery in order to replace the hard drive. However it is recommended to remove all power sources from electronics before working on them.

    • Use the tip of your finger to carefully peel back the corner of the warning label to reveal a hidden Tri-point screw.

    • Remove the last 7.4 mm Tri-point screw securing the battery to the upper case.

    • Tilt the battery away from the logic board enough to access the battery cable connector.

    • Pull the battery cable connector away from its socket on the logic board and remove the battery from the upper case.

    • Pull the battery cable connector away from the center of the logic board.

    • If you're installing a new battery, you should calibrate it after installation:

    • Charge it to 100%, and then keep charging it for at least 2 more hours. Next, unplug and use it normally to drain the battery. When you see the low battery warning, save your work, and keep your laptop on until it goes to sleep due to low battery. Wait at least 5 hours, then charge your laptop uninterrupted to 100%.

    • If you notice any unusual behavior or problems after installing your new battery, you may need to reset your MacBook's SMC.

    • It's very easy for the rubber display gasket to deform when exposed to heat, so it is best to remove it before using a heat gun to remove the display glass.

    • Insert the tip of a spudger underneath the black rubber gasket at the bottom right corner of the display assembly.

    • Gently pry the wide edge of the gasket up from the back case.

    • In the following steps, you will use a heat gun to soften the adhesive securing the outer silver border around the underside of the front panel to the display.

    • With the heat gun set to low, start by heating the metal bezel surrounding the LCD.

    • When using the heat gun, the goal is to soften a layer of adhesive holding the bezel to the display assembly. Be very careful not to overheat the LCD, as it could cause permanent damage.

  26. MacBook Pro 15" Unibody Mid 2010 Matte LCD Replacement: passo 26, imagem 1 %32 MacBook Pro 15" Unibody Mid 2010 Matte LCD Replacement: passo 26, imagem 2 %32
    • Carefully insert a guitar pick between the top right corner of the bezel and the display assembly.

    • Use the guitar pick to gently pry up the adhesive along the top edge securing the bezel to the display assembly.

    • The bezel is very thin metal, so be very careful not to crease it as you pry it up.

    • If necessary, use a heat gun to reapply heat along the top right edge to loosen the adhesive securing the bezel to the display assembly.

    • Work along the top right edge of the display assembly, carefully prying the adhesive up with the guitar pick. Stop when you get to the iSight camera.

    • Do not pry near the iSight camera—there is no adhesive immediately surrounding it, and you could damage the camera with the guitar pick.

    • Wedge a guitar pick in between the bezel and display assembly near the inner bottom left corner.

    • Work along the inner bottom left edge of the display assembly, carefully prying the adhesive up with the guitar pick.

    • Continue prying along the inner bottom edge to release the adhesive securing the bezel to the display assembly.

  33. MacBook Pro 15" Unibody Mid 2010 Matte LCD Replacement: passo 33, imagem 1 %32

    • Lifting the left edge of the clutch cover, gently rock it back and forth on its long axis while pulling it away from the display.

    • Remove the clutch cover from the display, minding any cables that may get caught.

    • When reinstalling the clutch cover, be sure to widen the opening when slipping it over the small black plastic cosmetic cover that fills the open end of the clutch cover when it is in place. The cosmetic cover has very thin and delicate plastic arms that hold it to the right clutch hinge.

Does the gasket reapply easily? It seems like once you get it off it wouldn’t like to go back on.
