The black plastic bezel is secured to the housing by 2 screws on the bottom left and right of the screen. With a pair of tweezers or a razor blade, carefully peel off the tape covering the two screws. Remove the screws.

Insert a black plastic spudger or safe-open pry tool between the bezel and the rear housing of the screen. Work your way around the sides and top of the screen, carefully separating the bezel from the housing. If you pry recklessly, you will break off the tabs that hold the bezel to the frame.

Remove all 4 screws that secure the LCD to the back housing. The innermost screw (shown in magenta) in each of the bottom left and right corners does not need to be removed. The innermost screw (shown in magenta) in each of the bottom left and right corners does not need to be removed.

The LCD connector is taped into its socket. Use tweezers to carefully lift the clear tape holding the connector down. Once you peel the tape past the gold portion of the connector, the connector should pull out easily.

There are two metal mounting brackets on each end of the LCD that attach the LCD to the computer housing. If your replacement screen did not come with these mounting brackets, then you will need to transfer your old ones to the new LCD. There are 3 screws holding each bracket to the LCD. Remove these screws and swap the original mounting brackets to your new part.

My Samsung laptop fell down so when I checked for damages everything was ok except my LCD back light is not working I hardly see what's on the screen. Please help how can I fix this problem

If your backlight is not working then the issue may probably lie in the inverter, which steps up battery voltage to power the backlight, rather than the screen itself. I am not familiar with this model, but the inverter is probably attached to the wire that goes into the LCD cable, perhaps below the hinge or just below the speaker assembly.

To pop the speaker assembly out you may have to undo some screws that are covered by components such as the hard drive or battery.

It's likely the LCD that needs to be replaced. If you purchase a screen on ebay or one of the laptop screen sales websites and follow this guide it should work again. Would you be able to send me a picture of what the screen is doing so I can better advise?
