Laptop LED backlight reuse

with 4 comments

My brother had an unfortunate accident with his laptop Acer Aspire V3-771G. He closed laptop hinge but left headphones in between the keyboard and screen. That caused LCD to crack and screen didn’t work any more. Guarantee repair was out of question for its price (170€ / 230$).

REPAIR: I found a replacement screen on German eBay for (87€ shipping included). Having knowledge with disassembling laptop screens, replacing backlights (CCFL on my Lenovo T60) and watching a simple tutorial on youtube I decided I was qualified for it.

It took me less than an episode of How I met your mother (20 min) to replace it. Brother -> happy.

REUSE; INTRO: I was left with a broken LCD screen but working LED backlight.
