One of our most popular services in Sheffield is laptop screen replacement. Details of services including prices we offer can be found on our Sheffield laptop screen / lcd replacement and repair page. It’s not as easy a job as many think which is why customers come to us to get the job done properly. There are many pitfalls to watch out for it you attempt to do the job yourself including,
- Ordering the wrong replacement part – many laptops have two different types of screens LCD or CCFL which can be used in the same model
- There are no ‘official’ replacements parts easily available for a decent price…which is to be expected, especially for an older models, but getting a good quality replacement without any dead pixels is important. A dead pixel is one or more pixels (of 1,049,088 on a standard laptop screen) that is defective (usually manifesting as a black dot). Some people wouldn’t even notice, others like ourselves would be infuriated with even just 1/1,049,088th of a screen being ‘dead’, so we have worked hard collecting an excellent range of top-quality suppliers which has allowed us to provide customers with 100% perfect screens. Touch-wood, this will always be the case
- Ensuring you have all the parts. Many laptop screens require a power converter. This many be the defective part, rather than the LCD screen…it’s hard to tell.
- Incorrect removal of the existing screen and installation of the replacement. To avoid damaging the bezel and LCD casing a lot of care is need to ensure that a screen can be fitted again correctly and no other damaged is caused. Remembering the first screen replacement jobs we ever did to our own machines, the process took hours…only research, experience, care and patience can ensure everything goes perfectly
- Working with the new replacement screen can be tricky. A customer came to us after attempting to replace a MacBook Air screen when they had tried to remove a layer of protect plastic but in fact started to remove part of the LCD screen!
- Scratching the screen – so easily done… A good methodical and careful technique is vital.
- Dust in the screen – especially a problem for Macbooks, Macbook Pros and MacBook Airs. Dust in-between the screen and glass panel looks terrible.
