Sorry Wahoo disney – did not see your very comprehensive respose abaove – will follow your instructions.August 4, 2009 at 11:54 am #185113TCMuffinMember
Thank you, Wahoo_Disney, for such a useful post. We really appreciate you sharing your experience 🙂August 20, 2009 at 6:13 pm #185133McBainMember
I just wanted to say a big thank you Wahoo_Disney.
I was idiotic enough to step on my NC10 last week, cracking the LCD to smithereens.
I followed your concise instructions just now to replace it – took me about 25 mins.
Thanks for putting in the time to write up the instructions.
Now that i’ve done this, i’m thinking that Touchscreen update might not be such a bad idea 😉

I have cracked my screen recently, but just the glass part, with no black spills behind. The screen is 100% functional. I was wondering if the glass part alone can be replaced from another broken screen. I once took a laptop screen apart out of curiosity, and the glass part on that one was easily separable.
Anyways, I was wondering if anybody had their old broken screens with good glass, so I could experiment and post my findings. I just want to try that before ordering a new replacement screen.
Please let me know.

I have an important question here! I just tried to change my screen by myself and everything was fine until i tried to connect the wire. I have a N110 and noticed that my new screen has a 30 pin terminal. My netbook has a different flat plug though and I dont know what to do now. I cant find any adapters for that. Do you what kind of connection is used from the mainboard to the LCD screen? (how many pins?) How is that little flat terminal called?
I hope you guys can help me!

Special thanks to WahooDisney. Following his write-up on here I was easily able to replace my screen which had developed a couple lines of stuck pixels. And I have to tell you, the new screen looks so good, I’m almost glad the old one needed to be replaced! I ordered it from this place. I went with glossy and it’s gorgeous. The usual side affect of added sensitivity to glare is, of course, there. But, the picture seems so much more crisp. I’m thoroughly pleased with the screen and the article here in this post on how to change it out!April 1, 2010 at 12:05 pm #185129dsummaMember
Thanks WahooDisney for your detailed post. I had been told by Samsung that the screen replacement would cost anywhere from $150 to $300 so I figured I didn’t have much to lose by trying to replace it myself. It was one of the easiest projects I’ve ever done. So simple. I used a $2 0/00 screwdriver from HomeDepot and got the screen at http://www.247laptoplcd.com/servlet/the-SAMSUNG-cln-10.1%22/Categories. Used a credit card to open the case once the screws were out and within 15 min. the new screen was in.
I don’t know what the differences between the screens with different part # suffixes are, so I bought my exact one with the C1 suffix. Came within 4 days.

The paged you linked looks like 10.1″ screens? Did the screen fit in your Sammy? My NC10 required a 10.2″ screen is the only reason I ask.April 1, 2010 at 11:57 pm #185130dsummaMember
The 10.1″ screen was for my N120. I’m sure 24/7 sells other size screens.April 13, 2010 at 6:27 pm #185135joeldriverMember
just followed this guide. Thank you! this saved me from buying a new netbook or claiming on the insurance. I bought a screen on ebay for Â£50 got it delivered this evening and had it fited within 20 mins.. quite easy really the only bit that was different from the step by step guide was that fact I didn’t have to remove the brackets on the side of the casing.
I used a Phillps screwdriver 00.. worked perfectly

Hello to all! I have been lurking about since I swapped my old Pentium 4 for Â£80 plus an almost new NC10 which had a cracked screen.
I’m shortly to buy a replacement screen from Cambridge Accessories. Their info states this is just the screen, not the brackets. In preparation I have reached this stage in Wahoo_Disney’s post –
“Next step was to remove the brackets on each side. Each bracket has two screws. These were smaller then the other screws and I needed the POZI 00 to get them out. I put these screws it the cup too, they were silver instead of black so easy to tell apart”.
With the side brackets removed I’m left with the screen which has a silver frame surrounding it. This frame appears to be sucured to the screen with heavy-duty silver tape. Do I have to remove this frame to put on the new screen when it arrives?
Thanks for original post and Wahoo_Disney for the helpful posts.April 14, 2010 at 6:10 pm #185127jeepers01ParticipantApril 14, 2010 at 8:33 pm #185138lesinlondonMember
Thanks for welcome and for links, jeepers01.
I have seen the touchscreen replacement instructions before. Their brackets each side of screen look slightly different than mine. Anyway, I’m still kinda confused whether the Cambridge Accessories (off Amazon) screen will have the right metal surround frame already attached (so no need to remove mine (which seems firmly attached anyway). Their image of it shows a narrower frame attached, and I can’t find a contact email/telephone to ask them about it.
Does anyone know another UK supplier that’s as reasonably priced, Â£59.99 +post.
