A Question...

I have a Toshiba satellite S50t-B laptop...

Last week its screen was cracked...

...

After a couple hours of searching around online I came to the conclusion that the procedure for replacing the screen in earlier models of my laptop was more or less straight forward and understandably I didn't really want to pay Toshiba 250-ish dollars to do what I apparently could do myself for about 60 dollars...

However, I quickly encountered a problem...

As I understand it, earlier models of Toshiba laptop had a plastic frame bordering the screen...

The corners of this frame supposed had rubber nubs in them which, once pried away, would give one access to the screws which hold the front casing of the laptop's screen frame in place...

Unfortunately, there is no such frame in the case of the Toshiba satellite S50t-B, the entire face of the laptop is coated in a glossy glass...

...

So basically, I am stuck...

Any help would be appreciated...

...

Kind regards, Sitromxe...

Which earlier models and what exact model do you have?

S50t-B may not be specific enough. Is it 10H or 00G or other?

If you can get the screen assembly apart (ie it is not expoxied closed) and you can order the exact replacement screen, it should be doable.

Even if it is tricky, 3rd parties should be unfazed if they are any good for less than Toshiba price.

Have you looked for a Service Maintenance Guide pdf for it on Toshiba site?

This is one of the first things I came across that video while I was seeking resolutions for my problem online, it is a teardown of a Toshiba L50-B laptop...

It also told me exactly nothing about how to dismantle a Toshiba S50t-B laptop monitor...

Further, if you pay close attention to the video you will notice that the laptop shown in the video doesn't even have a screen, presumably because the presenter removed it beforehand for convenience...

My laptop is a Toshiba satellite S50t-B00H...

click here the plan, replace the damaged screen with new hardware from a third party...

However, before I do that I need to figure out how to access the damaged screen, so that I can remove it and obtain the screen's model number, which should be printed on the piece of hardware in question...

So, essentially, all I need is for someone to tell me how to access the screen on a Toshiba satellite S50t-B00H...

...

That's

The Linking function of this site apparently fucked up my original message and my attempt to restate my message properly...

So here is my reply to robintheumpteenth without the hyperlink

From pictures and videos on this laptop it difficult to determine how to replace the screen. If there are no screws visible it could be just clipped together.

Why not contact the company who you may purchase the replacement screen from for advice, they may have another video or technical diagram on how to do it.

Tested the seams around the screen after noticing some curious indentations along the boundary between the screen and the back of the laptop with precision tools...

Would not recommend...

...

Absolutely no new insights were gleaned, and a small crack in the outer glass of the screen was created by my fiddling...

It is relatively innocuous now, but there is no doubt that over time the cracks are going to spread outwards across my whole monitor...

So, that's fantastic...

...

Think I will cut my losses and keep my laptop on a nice, safe self for a while...

In the meantime, I might drop by local tech shops and ask for advice...

I had a good hunt around last night and found nothing of help for your sp50t-b00h or even for just sp50t.

Maybe it's too new and you will have to wait for guides to get posted.

Windscreen repair kit for the small crack you just made?

Best of luck

I broke my first (personal) laptop screen when it was only 6 weeks old. I was very annoyed with myself.

It was fairly easy to replace but required the body of the laptop to be opened, to undo the hinges, to allow the two screen screen bezel screws to be removed. Stupid design.
