Screens can safely be considered the most fragile part of any laptop, and there is a lot of inconvenience if one completely shatters or gets slightly cracked. When repairing laptop screens in Brisbane, the first thing we identify is the make and model of the laptop. This is because some laptops are easier to pull apart and get to the screen part. But when a screen requires a complete replacement of a model that is hard to work around for unskilled professional, they find it difficult to attempt to do it on their own.
If you are living in Brisbane Australia and want to get a screen replacement for your laptop, we would rather you contact us for this service. We say this because if you aren’t skilled working on laptops, you could actually damage more than the screen. Anyhow, let’s learn about the dynamics of broken screens.
Make Sure Before Jumping In
It is wise to check the laptop’s own settings before automatically assuming the screen has been compromised. In some cases, such as the screen appearing blank or refusing to light up can be due to an internal problem. If you find the pixels on the screen aren’t appearing properly when you use it to type or watch videos, always check screen settings first. It is also possible that only one part of the screen may be damaged as opposed to all of it.
Furthermore, other settings such as backlight, brightness can affect the resolution of images and videos on a laptop. Backlights are usually installed in the laptop hinges, so definitely have them checked before attempting or calling for the whole screen to be replaced. Wiring that connects the screen to the inner system can also get compromised, in which case the screen will not need to be replaced. A sign of the latter is when the screen is completely white when the laptop is turned on.
Replacing The Laptop Screen
If the screen is itself the problem, you want to follow some expert steps for the best results. If you are replacing the screen yourself, make sure you get the right one for your model and an original one if you can manage it as cheaper replicas are always available but never work as well as the former. Always make sure you have shut down the laptop, unplugged the charger, and taken out the battery so there is no residual electric charge that could shock you or damage the laptop.
Unscrew the screws holding the broken screen in the socket to detach it. Typically there is a plastic or metal frame holding the screen in its place so gently pop it out to reveal the wiring underneath. Two cables will be immediately visible, one being the power cable and the other being the video cable. Remove the connecting wire (between the laptop’s monitor and the rest of its hardware). Do not touch the inverter wire yet.
The finishing touches are to place the new screen or LCD panel (it needs to be in the exact specifications) in the metal or plastic frame.
Reattach the wiring and screws and double-check if it powers up when the laptop is turned back on.
This entire process can also be done by hiring a qualified computer technician; it may cost more than DIY methods, but is also much safer for users that aren’t tech-savvy. However, screen replacements are probably the least technical aspect of laptop repairs which is why some laptop owners attempt to install it by themselves.
