screen replacement for 6910p

Hello!

 

I currently have WXGA 1280X800 screen in my 6910p laptop (446435-001)

I would like to replace it with WXGA+ 1440X900 screen (446436-001)

 

Is it possible? What do I need for this?

 

I know how to unscrew and remove the screen, I also know that I need to buy the 14.1 WXGA+ screen.

Do I need to know something else?

 

Thank you!

Hi,

Service documenatation for 6910p model you will find here.

 

Write your notebook product number (p/n) and country of purchase.

Resource:
How to Locate the Notebook product number (p/n)

 

This way I will be able to confirm then for 100% you can do this.

When you will do this I will give you confirmation of this information.

Re: screen replacement for 6910p

Hello!

 

Thank you for the reply, but not everything is so easy...

I do have the documentation and I know how to take it apart.

 

For now it looks like I need to change not only the screen but the cable too. I need part number 418898-001. This is LCD cable for WXGA+ screens. My current cable supports only WXGA.

 

Someone else has expirience with the screen replacement? What problems should I expect during the process?

 

Thank you!

Re: screen replacement for 6910p

I am not able to get a part number now, since the laptop is far away from me. I will see it on Saturday.

What is important in part number? I know I have 6910p and WXGA screen. What kind of information can be also important?

 

Thank you!

Here are all 6910p compatible models with this display. If your p/n is on this list then it will be working for 100%. It's just a conformation of this information. I don't want to give you bad answer. That's all.

 

As You see 446436-001 part have:

Display : 14.1-inch WXGA+ LCD display panel assembly - Includes wireless antenna transceivers and cables

 

So when You will buy it all parts will be with it. :smileyhappy:

Re: screen replacement for 6910p

Thank you for your help!

I took a look at the link you provided, but the price of the part does not make a very happy person. :smileyhappy:

 

Unfortunatelly on eBay and Internet stores this part number mean Screen only. So, I preffer to get a screen and cable separate. I am just wonder if I need to replace something else after I get all of this.

 

Currently I have screen and it does work but I see only every second vertical line. So there is one line visible one black and so on.

Cable is on its way. I think I do not need to replace the inverter. Everything else should be the same.

 

If you (someone else) have any commecnts or advise, please let me know!

 

Thank you!
