A lot of people get a little confused when using the term LCD and LED. Many will order a new LED screen in error because they believe that LCD and LED are the same thing. They aren’t however. All laptop screens are LCD panels. This stands for Liquid Crystal Display and is basically what is ‘inside’ the laptop screen that allows it to produce a picture. These crystals can be manipulated to produce different colours. All laptop screens whether CCFL or LED utilise the Liquid Crystal Display method to produce the image.
Within the LCD umbrella are then the two options of CCFL or LED. These terms indicate how the screen is lit internally – either through an external inverter with the CCFL screens or internally using the screens LED’s in the LED version. If you require a new laptop screen don’t be fooled by the term LCD as all laptop screens from all manufacturers are usually LCD. If you need to know what type (CCFL or LED) screen you have, why not follow our laptop screen fitting instructions to find out how to remove your faulty screen and identify which type of screen you need.
