Recent screen replacement job from Roehampton
A Roehampton University student brought her Dell Precision laptop with a broken LCD screen. She wanted the screen to be repaired as soon as possible as she had to finish her assignment. It was a normal 15.6″ LED backlit screen in matte finish. We keep a large stock of common screens in stock. Therefore, we had that screen in stock. We replaced the screen within 2 hours and the Roehampton University student got her laptop back the same day. She was very pleased with the screen repair service.
Tips for DIY laptop screen repair for our Roehampton clients:
Laptop screen replacement in most laptops is a fairly easy job. If you are a bit technical, you can do it yourself. You’ll need a few simple tools and a replacement LCD screen. For tools, we recommend a screwdriver with a variety of small bits. It’s also a good idea to have a few thin metal blades or plastic spudgers. These are really handy for removing the trim that surrounds the screen.
As for the replacement LCD, you should be able to buy one either from the laptop manufacturer’s authorized parts dealer or a third-party supplier. Depending the screen, a good quality one usually cost between £50 – £100. Beware of the cheap imitations from online marketplaces! Also keep in mind that you want to buy a new screen that matches your broken one exactly. The only sure way to do this is to remove the broken one.
1. Remove the screen bezel
After disconnecting the power supply and removing the battery, carefully examine the bezel around the screen. You’ll need to remove this bezel to access the screws that hold the LCD panel in place. Regardless of how you do it, you’ll need to completely remove the bezel.
2. Remove the broken LCD screen panel from the laptop
With the LCD’s mounting brackets exposed, you can remove the screws that secure it to the lid. Then rest the display front-side-down on the case and disconnect its cable.
Now, locate the manufacturer’s label and note the model number. Using this information you should be able to buy an exact match for your broken screen.
3. Install the new LCD screen panel to the laptop
Once your new screen arrives, unpack it and make sure it matches the old one.
If the dimensions, mounting brackets, and connector all match, you ready to install the screen. Connect the new panel to the cable, position the panel in the lid, and secure it using the appropriate screws.
4. Test the new LCD panel and reinstall the bezel
Before reattaching the bezel, it’s a good idea to test the new panel. Reconnect the battery and power cable and turn the computer on. If the replacement screen works, you can reattach the bezel and any external screws and rubber cushions. The screen replacement is now complete.
