Common Laptop Screen Problems – A Guide

There are a range of Laptop Screen faults which can occur meaning you will not be able to use the laptop in it’s normal function. Here we will describe the common problems and what you can do to fix them. The first and most obvious is a crack in the screen. The only way this can happen is if something has impacted the screen. A crack will not develop of its own accord. If this happens it cannot be repaired economically and so you will simply need to buy a Replacement Laptop Screen.

The sourcing and fitting of a laptop screen can be quite easy. Our website lists thousands of different makes and models and we even provide Laptop Screen Fitting Instructions to help you along the way and reduce the costs involved when fixing your laptop.

Another issue is vertical or horizontal banding or various colours running through the panel. This too can indicate the screen has been impacted and damages the internal LCD. Again this can’t be repaired and a new part is needed.

A third fault is a dim screen. Some laptops use a part called an inverter. This part provides power to the screen to illuminate it. If this part breaks you simply need to buy an inverter. These are reasonably priced and you should look to spend £20 – £30 on a new one. They can be accessed the same way as your screen and simply plug in the new one.

A completely black screen indicates an issue with your Graphics Chip. this requires specialist attention and some high end technology to fix. We are one of the few companies with the equipment to repair this fault. It commonly occurs because the soldered connection of the graphics chip to the motherboard becomes damaged. It is predominantly an HP Compaq Screen problem but can occur in all laptops. For any Laptop Repair enquiries just give us a call on 0845 257 7745
