This part of the Laptop Repair training deals with Laptop Screens and what you can do to replace them.
If you have other problems such as a dim screen then we can help you with our laptop screen problems section.
The Laptop Screen Replacement procedure is relatively straight forward and you can follow a series of simple steps each time you do it. Once again I will remind you that there is always a pattern between the different manufacturers and replacement of a laptop screen does not differ too much.
The steps are outlined below both in the video and in the step by step instructions.
As already stated the problem may be obvious:
A smashed or cracked laptop screen is an easy sign that it will need to be replaced. However, sometimes the symptoms are not so obvious. For example, the screen may be black/blank or perhaps you can see the image on the laptop screen quite faintly. Maybe even the screen stays on for a while but then decides to shut itself off. These type of fault we normally describe here at TekMoz as ‘not so obvious’ and require a bit of troubleshooting. We covered this on our page for troubleshooting laptop screen problems.
So what do we do about the ‘obvious faults?’ i.e the smashed laptop screen or that scratch or crack that runs across the screen.
DON’T REPAIR IT. REPLACE IT.
With practice you can swap out a laptop screen in about 15 minutes. Let’s walk through the steps required below and then take a look at a video. What we want to teach you about laptop repair here at TekMoz is how to tackle any laptop issue by showing you a bunch of generic steps. This means that if you use these steps as a guide you should feel confident in applying them to any make or model of computer or laptop. Laptop screen replacement is no different.
