Broken Sony Vaio VPCEH Laptop Screen

Before starting the repair make sure you get the right screen from the links below;

Usually to replace a laptop screen tools that are needed are precision screwdrivers and the LCD screen only.
This instruction should be followed carefully and can be used if the display monitor is cracked, dark, black or with coloured lines on it.

Always remove the laptop battery and only use it if you have to test the screen during the replacement.

Screen Cover Removal

On the four corners of the laptop you will find plastic covers. Remove them and this will reveal the screws holding the screen area of the laptop together.

Pull The Screen To Release Bezel

Place your fingers between the Sony Vaio screen and the bezel and start pulling slightly on all the sides until the bezel is pulled free from the laptop. This needs to be done carefully as shown in the images below.

Sony Vaio  bezels are very fragile and can easily snap so do this with care. You must not pull too hard.

Using the image below as a guide pull the screen forward slightly and remove all the side screws. Keep the screen aside as they are totally different from the rest of the screws in this repair.
