    Hey folks,

    I think this is going to be a DIY repair (a pain I know) I just need advice as far as what part of the screen you all think is actually broken.

    This is my first post here. If I'm in the wrong forum, just let me know and I'll move this thread. Thanks a bunch,

    Jon

    The LCD, which is the screen. Pulling the bezel off these guys is a bit of a pain, but if you're comfortable working with electronics and want to give it a go, no reason not to.

    If this is your first time doing this, stop, its more cost effective to simply buy the entire aluminum bezel or the clamshell instead of trying to fix it, you can fix it but there is a high chance that it will look bad once its fixed. Oh and also there are sheets in the back, which if you dont clean 100 percent properly, they will make white spots, so save yourself the trouble and get an entire assembly and don't make the mistake that I made.


    It looks like the lcd panel is broken..

    Thanks so much for the info folks.

    Does anyone have a good source for the clamshell/aluminum bezel? Looking around so far, they're a bit spendy, but if that's what it takes. I have totally messed up lots of things like this before, so I'd like to go for the easier option if possible.
