Default ThinkPad LCD Disassemble

In my last topic, LCD Help, I had problems with my black screen on my thinkpad. Now I found a website that will help me with the parts;
http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/si...GR-4UYKLK#no1,
http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/si...GR-4PEHK3#no1,
but not the directions to disassemble it. I need to look inside it and check it out. Any ideas for taking the screen off?

taking off the lcd would result in you taking your computer apart cause you have to unplug some wires in the computer to completly remove the lcd so i would start with unplugging those wires and if theres rubber stoppers on the lcd then the screws are probably underneath those. Otherwise just look around for screws on the lcd to take it apart

I got an IBM Thinkpad. It is by any chance the A series? Maybe the A31? Mine's pretty messed up as well, but was very very easy to take apart.

Yeah their fairly easy to take apart

Things to remeber

-Use a digital camera and take pictures of everything so you can put it back together

-Make sure you ground yourself while working on the laptop

You should have known that before hand man. Check the inverter board, they are usually the first things to go.

I know, see I was waiting for my bro to check it, but not until laterr. So hold on, I am at the point where I removed the frame of the LCD but now I still have the LCD sheet thingy attached to the back cover. Any ideas on how to remove it?

It is still screwed in. Did you unscrew the screws from the side? There are little black sticky thigns over the screws, so they are hard to see. Just pop them off with a knife or something.
