How to Open Hp 15

This sequence is not based on the first sequence. You can take off the display panel, but make sure to remove the battery before you start disassembling it.

Initiate the separation of the monitor from the rear casing. Use a wiggling motion to remove the bezel from the case. Move around the whole display, starting from the top and going down.

For securing the LCD screen to the bezel, use adhesive tape on the rim. Lay it on its side.

  • Take the whole dial forward.
  • Take out the four Phillips screws that secure the LCD panel to the brackets.
  • Place the screen face down on the keyboard, if you have the flexibility.
  • All you have to do is plug the cable into the socket.
  • Carefully remove the copper strip from the screen.
  • Remove the cable and detach the monitor’s video cable from the panel using the tape that is used to secure it.
  • If the LCD screen needs to be replaced, remove it completely and replace it with something new.
  • The model number from the original can be replaced with a new LCD panel. For my part, in this phase, I have suggested using the model number B156K01.
