In the video tutorial below you will learn how to dismantle and replace a broken screen on Samsung NP-RV510, RV511, S3510, S3511, SF510, SF511 laptop notebooks. I will start by explaining the type of screens in the mentioned laptops. The Samsung RV510, RV511, S3510, S3511 come with regular 15.6 inch LED backlight screens with resolution of 1366 x 768 while the other two Samsung SF510 and SF511 come with the same type of screens but the slimline type.

It is important to make sure that you have the right replacement screens before starting the repair. Below are the links to the right screens;

I will analyze the process of replacing the screen here to guide through the embedded video. This replacement instruction can be used if you dropped the laptop and cracked the screen or if the screen has gone dark or have defective lines on it. In some cases the laptop screen could be flickering. This instruction will guide you.

Step 1. Remove the laptop battery before starting the repair.

Step 2. On the four corners of the screen there are plastic covers. Remove the covers to expose the screws and unscrew these screws.

Step 3. Remove screen plastic bezel carefully. Try not to pull to strongly to avoid snapping the bezel.

Step 4. Unscrew the side screws holding the LCD display panel to the hinges arms.

Step 5. Place the screen face-down and remove the screen display cable.

Doing the above will successfully remove the screen from the laptop and by carrying out the process in reverse you will be able to install a new working screen.

The screen part number Samsung RV510, RV511, S3510, S3511 laptop are LTN156AT05, B156XW02, N156B6-L06 and BT156GW01. While the one for the SF510 and SF511 are LTN156AT19.

The Samsung laptops can come with hyphenated numbers but these do not differentiate the laptop type or the screen inside it. Below are examples.

Have you dropped the laptop and it is cracked? or it is simply flickering. The instruction here will assist in dismantling and removing the defective screen and replacing it with a new one.

Samsung NP300E5A Remove Battery

First of all, Remove the laptop battery before starting the screen repair.

On the four corners of the screen are screw covers. Remove them to expose the screws holding the bezel.

Remove the screws and keep them aside.

Using the image on the left as a guide put your fingers between the screen and the plastic bezel and start pulling on all sides.

Pull on all sides until the bezel starts releasing from its catches. This pull must be done firmly but with care to avoid snapping the plastic.

Now that the internal part is exposed pull the screen slightly towards you and remove all side screws from the brackets.

At the back of the screen panel you will find part numbers like LTN156AT18LTN156AT19 made by Samsung or N156BGE-L52N156BGE-L62 made by Chi Mei Innolux

Remove the screen cable connection. Usually it is held down by a clear table or a catch. Raise the clear tape or catch upwards before doing the diconnection. Use the image on the right as a guide.

At this point the screen removal process is done. To install a new screen simply continue the process in reverse.
