Step Four: Disassembling the Notebook Pg 3

Looking behind the LCD screen panel we see the rear plastic screen bezel and all the associated cable harnesses and metal foil components. At the bottom right is the data cable running from the computer to the LCD screen panel. Around the outside of the rear plastic screen bezel are cables for the WiFi antenna's, a USB cable for the integrated web camera and reading light, and a cable running off to the screen closure sensor.

The back of the LCD screen panel looks like this. Aside from two screws along each edge which hold it in the metal frame, there is only a 40-pin data cable connection at the bottom left. This 15.6" LCD panel is made by Samsung, model: LTN156AT24.

The 40-pin data cable connection. We can't simply disconnect this cable though; Lenovo have applied two layers of tape to ensure the video cable never becomes disconnected inside the laptop. To disconnect the data cable, the tape has to be carefully removed first.

First, carefully peel back both ends of the black fiber tape. We'll need to reapply this tape so be careful not to damage it.

Next, we carefully peel back the layer of clear thick plastic which runs across the connection. We set this aside without damaging the adhesive backing.

With the tapes removed, the 40-pin male data cable can be disengaged from the socket. This doesn't require much force, but do pull back in a straight line or you'll bend the thin metal tabs.
