When you have an experience of a malfunctioning laptop screen, then you are required to go for laptop screen repairs. There are a variety of reasons when LCD screens stop working. It could be due to minor damage or display error or even due to mishandling of the unit. Whatever the case may be, it is always advisable to carry out laptop screen repairs in order to minimize inconvenience to you and to the people around you.
To undertake such a job, you should invest in a good laptop screen repair kit which costs less than $20 and a professional technician who charges more than this. With the repair kit, you require one more item, an optical scanner of your macbook’s type, which costs an additional fifty bucks. These tools are easily available in the nearest local store. Do not attempt to do the work on your own due to the complexity involved. Even the best IT professional will find it difficult to fix the issue.
The most common reason for a laptop screen repair is cracked screens caused by drops. If you drop your laptop frequently then it is extremely important to buy a protective external monitor. You can also use a broken battery. This is effective in preventing further damages and extends the lifespan of your notebook.
In order to avoid the above-mentioned mistakes, always make sure you buy the right screen for your laptop model. Do not just go for the cheapest one in a nearby store. Make a detailed list of features including the pixels as well as their order to make sure you buy the right screen.
One of the easiest ways of repairing broken screens is to replace them with a new one. If you do not know how to replace a screen, ask someone at the store. Alternatively, search online for ‘laptop repaired’ or ‘fixing laptop malfunction’. There are several advantages of searching online – compare prices, read customer reviews and choose the best company. Read the post or article carefully to understand the process of replacing the display. Most manufacturers offer a complete kit which consists of the hardware, software and a step-by-step manual.
However, if you opt to repair the display yourself, you may be able to save a small amount of money compared to buying a new one. However, do not compromise with the quality of the display simply because you want to save some money. If you have basic knowledge about laptops, then you can perform basic screen repairs without any professional help. Before attempting any DIY screen repair, it is essential to first back up the images. This is because if the images are accidentally deleted, then you will be unable to retrieve them.
When you have successfully backed up your images, it is time to remove all the screws from the screen and access the three clips that are located on the back of the display. Carefully untangle the cord that connects the display, inverter and keyboard. Once all the cords are removed, gently pull the inverter away from the laptop. It may feel somewhat tight at first since there are wires attached to the inverter. Then disconnect all the wires except for the three that are on the front of the LCD.
Next, place the inverter back into its original location, making sure the inverter is held securely in place using plastic washers. Once the inverter is securely mounted, the third cable is connected, usually between a powerpoint and the backlight of the laptop. This allows the LCD screen repairman to manually turn on the laptop. If there are any problems or complications during the repair, ensure the service men or technicians are highly knowledgeable with laptops and have experience in replacing lcd screens. The LCD screen can sometimes be difficult to replace, so a high level of technical ability is necessary.
