This instructable will be performed on a laptop LCD from an old Zenith Data Systems computer. I tried to make this instructable pretty basic and not extremely detailed because every LCD screen is different. Your LCD will be different from mine (how its held together, the number of CCFL's, etc) but the concepts will remain the same. Feel free to send me any questions you might have, and I'll try to help you out.
Replacement CCFL (Cold Cathode Fluorescent Tube)
Small Phillips Screwdrivers
Electrical Tape / Soldering Iron
Step 1: Disassembling the LCD Housing
EXTERNAL LCD MONITOR: Usually to get inside of an external monitor, you will have to simply take out all the screws on the back of the display and pull it apart. Pretty simple.
LAPTOP LCD (Shown): This can be a little more frustrating at times, but not impossible. First open up the laptop and locate all of the screws (sometimes these can be hiding under rubber feet). After removing the screws, many times you will also need to use a flat head screwdriver to pry the housing open little by little. Be gentle,, but don't be afraid to use a little force.
After getting the back of housing off the computer, disconnect the LCD from the inverter.
Now completely detach the LCD from the housing by removing the remaining screws.
