Introduction

Swapping broken Razer Blade screen assembly with working one.

Start by making sure your replacement assembly will work with your model. I bought this QHD assembly on eBay. This assembly includes the LCD, webcam, antenna, and touch digitizer. Before embarking, one should make sure that that a new screen assembly is necessary and will fix their problem. In my case, my LCD and touchscreen were fried.

Could you provide some links for where to buy a replacement screen for the 2016 4k UHD Razer Blade?

unscrew the 10 (T5) torx screws to release the back panel. Be sure to fully drain your laptops battery or disconnect the battery before tampering with the internal components.

Note the LCD Cable (Green), Antenna Cable (Red), Webcam Cable (Blue), and Charging cable (Purple). These all run to the screen assembly.

Unplug before mentioned connectors. The webcam and charger cable may require a small pry tool. The LCD cable should disconnect with a light pull on the plastic tab. The antenna cables just pop off with some upward pressure.

Reconnect cables. (Route these cables in a way that would prevent getting crushed against the bottom cover)
