Use a 1.5mm hex screwdriver to remove the two hex screws on either side of the display (four screws total).
If you don't have a 1.5mm hex driver, you can probably get these screws out with a T6 Torx screwdriver. However, if you use a T6 Torx driver you'll be more likely to strip the screws.
Disconnect the inverter cable by pulling its connector away from the socket on the inverter board.
The inverter board is a very thin and delicate circuit board that is easily broken. Use caution.
This connector tends to stick in its socket. It is helpful to push the connector with the tip of a spudger through the two small holes in the top of the socket while pulling the connector away from the socket.
Make sure to grasp the inverter cabling by the black tape and not the individual wires. Pulling the wires themselves will surely damage the inverter cable.
