Due to popular search demands on removing the display bezel and the last day of using my camera, I decided to try and disassemble the display bezel. It was a success that’s why this article can be written to cater for those who want to replace their Dell Inspiron 6400’s LCD panel.

This is a continuation of the original post called How To Disassemble Dell Inspiron 6400/E1505. So a lot of steps will be referred to that particular post itself.

Removing the Display Bezel

  1. Remove the Battery (available here).
  2. Remove the Hinge Cover (available here).
  3. Remove the LCD Screen (available here).
  4. Note that in every round display bumpers, there is a M2.5 x 4.2-mm screw.
  5. Unstick all the display bumpers. Please take note that some display bumpers comes out in 2 pieces. So you might need to pry it out with a small screwdriver before you get to unscrew it.
  6. Unscrew all the six screws in the display bumpers.
  7. Here is the hard part, it is extremely hard to unclip all the protruding edges shown below. On each side, there are at least three edges you will need to unclip.
    You will need to apply some strength to force the edges out, so don’t be sissy with the edges.

Replacing the LCD Panel

  1. After the bezel is removed, you can fix the wobbling screen or replace the LCD panel.
  2. To change a LCD panel, simply remove eight M2 x 3-mm screws (four on each sides of the panel).
  3. Disconnect two connectors. One with the blue tag, another one by clipping it in and pull it out.
  4. Connect those two connectors to the new LCD panel.
  5. Fix it into the display back cover.

There you go, removing the display bezel and replacing the LCD panel of a Dell Inspiron 6400. I hope it helped you guys solve some of your problems.

    Wow, totally timely and useful since one of our laptops need a new LCD housing and I didn’t want to pay someone to do this for me, thanks! One tip for step 7 of removing the bezel that made it quite easy for me and might help others with what you found to be a difficult step. I started at one bottom corner by a hinge and slipped in a thickish flat head screwdriver head, not too far, just enough that the thick head started to separate the bezel, then I slowly slid it upwards along the side with a few wiggles and it easily and neatly popped off the clasps as I went. Do the same thing on the other side and now the bezel is free on both sides and the bottom. Carefully do the same thing at the top and before you know it the bezel is off, nothing broken, no worries about forcing anything or breaking anything. I used this same method to get off the hinge cover, by the way, using a small flat head on the indent on the right side to get it started, then very carefully slid a thicker flat head along the bottom edge, giving it little twists when you meet the resistance of a clasp and it pops right off with no worries about breaking this thin piece of plastic since you’re not bending the whole thing, just don’t put it in too far so you don’t have to worry about jabbing anything you shouldn’t or snapping off anything you don’t want snapped off.

    This seems to be really great info. I have yet to try this, but I want to replace my screen on my E1505 and I thought I would have to take it somewhere to do this. This article shows that it’s not that hard at all and I will definitely try this if I decide for sure to replace my screen. Thanks!
