Broken Laptop Screens

Screen damage that formed a bizarre shape

Screen damage on one customer’s laptop that formed a bizarre Lovecraftian shape

An all too common sight when working on laptops is the broken screen panel. Whether it was kicked, sat on or dropped from the sofa the result was the same: it needed replacing. This is often fairly simple and much cheaper than a new machine.

Some, such as Apple Macbooks required a seriously lengthy disassembly process whilst others only presented me with a handful of screws to remove and some gentle prying.

I have replaced dozens, perhaps hundreds, of screens in many different laptops and this may be a task I could actually perform with my eyes closed!
