How To Repair Screen On Macbook Pro

Is your MacBook Pro screen acting up? Perhaps you’ve noticed a few dead pixels, or maybe you’ve accidentally cracked it. No worries, you’re not alone. Screen problems are, unfortunately, a common issue with laptops. But don’t despair, this guide will help you through the process of repairing your MacBook Pro screen.

Tools You Will Need:

  • New MacBook Pro Screen
  • Screwdriver set
  • Plastic opening tools
  • Plastic cards
  • Heat gun (optional)

Step 1: Unplug and Power Off Your MacBook Pro

Before you start any repairs, make sure your MacBook Pro is completely powered off and unplugged. You don’t want any electricity flowing through your device as you work.

Step 2: Remove the Bottom Case

Flip your MacBook Pro over and remove the ten screws holding the bottom case in place. Once the screws are out, you can remove the bottom case by lifting it up.

Step 3: Disconnect the Battery

Next, you’ll need to disconnect the battery. This is important to ensure that you don’t accidentally power on the MacBook during the repair. Use a plastic opening tool to lift the battery connector out of its socket on the logic board.

Step 4: Remove the Screen

With the battery disconnected, you can now remove the screen. Start by removing the screws securing the screen to the body of the MacBook. There should be six screws in total – three on each side. After you’ve removed the screws, you can lift the screen out of the body.

Step 5: Replace the Screen

Take your new screen and align it with the body of the MacBook. Once it’s in place, you can reinsert the screws to secure it. Make sure not to overtighten the screws, as this could damage the new screen.

Step 6: Reconnect the Battery and Reassemble

With the new screen installed, it’s time to reconnect the battery. Simply align the battery connector with its socket on the logic board and press it into place. Then, replace the bottom case and reinsert the screws.

Step 7: Test the New Screen

Now it’s time to test your new screen. Power on your MacBook Pro and make sure that everything is working as it should. If you see any issues, ensure that all the connections are secure and that the screen is properly installed.

And there you go! You’ve successfully replaced your MacBook Pro screen. This is a great way to prolong the life of your device and save some money in the process. But remember, if you don’t feel comfortable performing this repair yourself, it’s always best to take your MacBook to a professional.
