Dis-assembly of LCD panle to access the CCFL back lights assemblies.

Passo 1 LCD Backlights (CCFL)  ¶ 

The rest of this procedure should be done in the cleanest possible work environment to avoid dust getting BEHIND the LCD (I learned this the HARD way!) Once the LCD panel is removed you need to peel back the black foil from the top edge of the LCD to reveal the clear plastic PCB protector. Now gently peel the clear plastic PCB protector off the top edge.  Make sure you don't damage the flex cables attached to the PBC you are exposing.

Passo 1 LCD Backlights (CCFL)  ¶ 

  • The rest of this procedure should be done in the cleanest possible work environment to avoid dust getting BEHIND the LCD (I learned this the HARD way!)

  • Once the LCD panel is removed you need to peel back the black foil from the top edge of the LCD to reveal the clear plastic PCB protector.

  • Now gently peel the clear plastic PCB protector off the top edge. Make sure you don't damage the flex cables attached to the PBC you are exposing.

  • There are a total of 8 flex cables along the top edge

Passo 2  ¶ 

Use a sharpie or similar, mark the side brackets on either side of the LCD panel before removing screws as they are different Use a T10 Torx driver to remove the 2 screws from each side bracket (total 4 screws) Use a T10 Torx driver to remove the 2 screws from each side bracket (total 4 screws)

Passo 2  ¶ 

  • Use a sharpie or similar, mark the side brackets on either side of the LCD panel before removing screws as they are different

  • Use a T10 Torx driver to remove the 2 screws from each side bracket (total 4 screws)

Passo 3  ¶ 

Stand the LCD panel on its TOP edge and locate the lock tabs along the BOTTOM edge.  There are 5 along the length of the bottom edge Use a flat blade driver or metal spudger to Gently pop the bezel off the lock tabs. Locate the lock tabs on either side of the LCD panel.  There are 2 on each side

Passo 3  ¶ 

  • Stand the LCD panel on its TOP edge and locate the lock tabs along the BOTTOM edge. There are 5 along the length of the bottom edge

  • Use a flat blade driver or metal spudger to Gently pop the bezel off the lock tabs.

  • Locate the lock tabs on either side of the LCD panel. There are 2 on each side

  • Use a flat blade driver or metal spudger to Gently pop the bezel off the side lock tabs.

Passo 4  ¶ 

Now gently separate the metal bezel from the main body of the LCD panel Lay the LCD panel down on with viewing side UP and remove the metal bezel Make sure you are careful when removing the bezel from the TOP edge as you will be exposing the 8 flex cables mentioned in step 1.

Passo 4  ¶ 

  • Now gently separate the metal bezel from the main body of the LCD panel

  • Lay the LCD panel down on with viewing side UP and remove the metal bezel

  • Make sure you are careful when removing the bezel from the TOP edge as you will be exposing the 8 flex cables mentioned in step 1.

  • Note the 3 flex tabs on the left edge

  • Do not damage any of the tabs or flex cables as these are the Row and Column Drivers. Damage to these will will cause faults like vertical/horizontal lines or white screen etc.

  • WARNING - Once the bezel is removed the LCD is LOOSE in the black plastic frame - only held in by the small gasket underneath.

Passo 5  ¶ 

Using a plastic spudger or pry tool, work GENTLY around the edges of the LCD to loosen it from the gasket below - use GREAT CARE so you don't crack or chip the panel as it is only a couple mm thick Once the LCD is loose you need to HOLD it in place in the black plastic frame and GENTLY flip the entire assembly so the LCD is flat on the work surface

Passo 6  ¶ 

Remove the tape securing the LVDS cable Press IN the 2 silver spring loaded catches on either side to release the cable and gently extract it from the connector

Passo 6  ¶ 

  • Remove the tape securing the LVDS cable

  • Press IN the 2 silver spring loaded catches on either side to release the cable and gently extract it from the connector

Passo 7  ¶ 

Peel the back Black foil and clear plastic PCB protector to fully expose the PCB that runs across the top of the LCD assembly Remove the 2ea Philips head screws from each end of the PCB

Passo 7  ¶ 

  • Peel the back Black foil and clear plastic PCB protector to fully expose the PCB that runs across the top of the LCD assembly

  • Remove the 2ea Philips head screws from each end of the PCB

  • The PCB actually has a 3rd screw hole in the centre of the board. Perhaps my assembly is missing a screw

Passo 8  ¶ 

Gently flip the PCB over 180deg so it is off the aluminum back panel. Be CAREFUL not to damage the 8 flex cables

Passo 8  ¶ 

  • Gently flip the PCB over 180deg so it is off the aluminum back panel.

  • Be CAREFUL not to damage the 8 flex cables

  • The PCB may be attached to the aluminium by some adhesive near the LVDS connector. IF so use a plastic pry tool or spudger to GENTLY lift the PCB up

  • Now lift the the back panel off the LCD separating the LCD from the back light assembly

Passo 9  ¶ 

Disassembling the back-light assembly is a little fiddly as there are a number of parts that all want to come apart at the same time Remove the 6 Philips screws from the rear of the back light assembly Removing the white tape from the CCFL cable.

Passo 9  ¶ 

  • Disassembling the back-light assembly is a little fiddly as there are a number of parts that all want to come apart at the same time

  • Remove the 6 Philips screws from the rear of the back light assembly

  • Removing the white tape from the CCFL cable.

  • Un-clip the CCFL cable from the black plastic surround

  • There are 2 CCFL cables and the process is essentially the same for each

Passo 10  ¶ 

Separate the black plastic surround from the aluminum back plate to access the CCFL tube assemblies Start by un-clipping the tabs along the top edge of the assembly.  There are 4 tabs along the top The top CCFL tube can be seen and CAREFULLY removed

Passo 10  ¶ 

  • Separate the black plastic surround from the aluminum back plate to access the CCFL tube assemblies

  • Start by un-clipping the tabs along the top edge of the assembly. There are 4 tabs along the top

  • The top CCFL tube can be seen and CAREFULLY removed

Passo 11  ¶ 

The bottom of the black surround can now be un-clipped and the entire surround removed There are 4 tabs along the bottom of the assembly Once the black surround is off the rest pretty much comes apart with the bottom CCFL tube being able to be removed in a similar manner to the top

Passo 11  ¶ 

  • The bottom of the black surround can now be un-clipped and the entire surround removed

  • There are 4 tabs along the bottom of the assembly

  • Once the black surround is off the rest pretty much comes apart with the bottom CCFL tube being able to be removed in a similar manner to the top

  • The centre of the back light assembly is made up of 4 main parts. A perspex sheet with white plastic coating, 2 opaque matt plastic sheets, and 1 Pearlescent matt plastic sheet

  • The plastic sheets are polarisers so need to be kept clean and free of dust and scratches

Passo 12  ¶ 

The CCLF tube assemblies are made up of a U shaped reflector with 2ea individual tubes inside.  The entire assembly is 457mm long and 7.6mm wide.  There are no part numbers on the assembly however there is a S on the end with the wires attached and an 18 on the other end. The 2 CCFL tubes are held together with a figure 8 rubber band in the middle of the reflector so both tubes must come out at the same time. The individual tubes are 448mm long (excluding the terminals - standard way to measure is end of glass to end of glass) and are 2.4mm diameter.

  • The individual tubes are 448mm long (excluding the terminals - standard way to measure is end of glass to end of glass) and are 2.4mm diameter.

  • The CCFL are soldered to the wires so not a simple plug in replacement

  • The CCFL are EXTREMELY fragile so ensure you dont break them when installing them.

  • The CCFL reflectors are a tight fit over the sides of the perspex sheet and the other layers of plastic. Patience and a plastic spudger or pry tool should get you there

  • The closest I can find to my CCFL measurements are either the 446mm x 2.4mm or the 450mm x 2.4mm so I'd suggest the 446mm is used
