Introduction

Use this guide to replace a broken LCD.

  1. HP TouchPad LCD Replacement, Front Panel Assembly: étape 1, image 1 de 1
    • In the following steps, you will use a metal spudger to lift the front panel out from the rear case of your TouchPad.

    • The front panel is held in by seven clips (boxed in red) that are lightly anchored to the rear case. When you remove the front panel assembly, you are bound to break either the clips or their supports attached to the rear case. We will update this guide as we find replacement parts or a better method to remove the panel.

    • As you remove the front panel assembly, also be careful not to damage the ambient light sensor (boxed in yellow) or the two antennas (boxed in orange).

    • Insert a flat metal spudger in the gap between the rubber outer ring on the front panel assembly and the black plastic rear case near the USB connector.

    • Pry the front panel assembly up from the rear case, being careful not to damage the LCD or the glass panel.

    • As you work through the following steps, insert your metal spudger and pry the front panel up, but do not try to slide the spudger along the gap you're creating. Always remove your spudger, then insert it at another spot and pry upward.

This was an especially easy and very helpful guide.... If anyone finds out where to get the HP Touchpad plastic retainer clips (which break very easily as it turns out) please let me know here or at gskdesigns@gmail.com.
