Laptop screen replacement

With cracked laptop screens you can always be certain of one thing, it will never get better on its own. So if your screen has a crack ( or the display is blown and has way too many defective pixels ) a defective laptop display will eventually lead to a point when you are no longer able to depend on your machine. Before you start looking for a replacement device consider laptop screen replacement as an affordable option.

Laptop Screen Replacement Cost

Most often the laptop screen replacement cost is going to be substantially less than buying a new device. Our charge to you is always only $60.00 (Sixty dollars) plus the cost of the part(s). This actually is the best laptop screen replacement cost in the Phoenix AZ area. We at 2JTech keep our overhead costs low which allows us to pass along the savings to our customers.

Steps to replace a damaged screen

We will be focusing on replacement of just the LCD panel itself. This is the usual requirement of our clients who have inadvertently dropped or otherwise have cracked the screen LED. Now depending on the actual manufacturer of your device and the year it was produced the steps may actually change a bit but, generally speaking this is basic for every portable device you’re likely to have.
First we need to determine exactly which specific part you’ll require. To do this we first must remove the broken piece. Disconnecting the external power supply completely then carefully removing the battery. This will prevent any accidental mishaps with open power that ‘could occur.’
There will be a bezel around the screen that we need to remove so that we can access and remove all screws that hold the LCD panel in place. Often there will also be rubber cushioning that rests between the lid and case that needs to be removed as it will be hiding the set screws. Or your machine may have a ‘snap’ type device or it cam be held in place by double-sided tape. Whichever is the case we will remove this to access and remove the bezel to expose the mounting brackets that secure the LCD.
Once the screws are visual we will remove these and disconnect the display front and disconnect the one or two back cables. Now we are able to locate the manufacturers label and note model number. This allows us to provide you with the exact part you’ll need.
When we have your new part we will begin by matching the new piece against the old piece to make an initial determination to see if we’ve the correct part. If so we will then begin to mount the piece back to the device. Best practice is to check the part to see if it’s functioning properly. We will re-connect power sources to the display and if functional we will reverse the above order. Once the machine is back together we will again test for performance and give you back a fully functioning machine!

 Defective Pixels

Defective Pixels are sub-pixels on a LCD (liquid crystal display) that are functioning other than as designed by the manufacturer. It takes three sub-pixels to form one wholly functioning pixel.

Most often these pixels malfunction in one of three common ways:
  • A partial sub-pixel defect. We will start here as this is a Manufacturers defect caused by an improper cut of the RGB film layering. Whenever we come across this the owner of the device most often can have the repair done at a cost to the manufacturer.
  • Hot Pixels (also called bright dots) are whenever the entire sub-pixel grouping transistors are stuck ‘on’ with MVA/PVA panels or whose transistors are stuck “off” for TN panels. This creates the bright white ‘hot’ dots that are forever on the display of the device.
  • Dark Dots (sometimes called dead pixels, although this is incorrect) This is the exact opposite of the ‘hot pixels’ above. So here the sub-pixel grouping is turned ‘off’ with MVA/PVA panels and ‘on’ with TN panels. This prevents any light to be transmitted through the RGB layer.
