post Post    

Laptop screens are cracked or not functional, they can be repaired by computer technicians or the manufacturer. If the laptop is no longer under warranty, it can be a costly repair. Some laptop screen repair can be done by the laptop owner, with the proper tools and parts to repair the problem.

Typical costs:

  • Replacing a laptop screen that is under warranty can sometime be repaired by the manufacturer at no cost to the customer, aside from delivering the defective laptop to the repair center.
  • Repairing a laptop screen through the manufacturer that is no longer under warranty is typically pricy, and customers are charged for parts, labor, shipping and applicable taxes, which can total up to two-thirds of the total cost of the laptop originally. Plan to spend $200-$600 for a manufacturer-done repair. For example, Toshiba charges $390 for an LCD replacement[1] .
  • Local authorized repair shops are often capable of fixing laptop screens, but do not always have the parts in stock to do the repair onsite. Prices for parts and labor vary, but expect to pay a minimum of $150-$300 for a PC screen repair, more for Macs.
What should be included:
  • Laptop screen repair should include correcting any scratches, cracks or display problems a laptop might have developed.
Additional costs:
  • For those with the know-how and the inclination, there are sites such as iFixit[2] offer guides for repairing laptops. Parts are often available through authorized dealers, as well as on Amazon and on eBay. Screen replacement parts vary, but a complete replacement and tools for the job typically can be done for less than $100.
Discounts:
  • There are detailed step-by-step guides posted online for DIY laptop screen repair for both PCs[3] and Macs[4] . It requires just buying the parts, which can save on costly labor charges.
Shopping for laptop screen repair:
  • Tips for buying a replacement LCD screen[5] are provided by eBay.
