When looking to order a Replacement Laptop Screen we may ask you to remove the old screen to get the part number This could happen if the manufacturers swapped the type of screen they used. The part number gives you an exact indication of what you need to buy to replace it with.
The back of each and every laptop screen will have a part number from one of the five or so main manufacturers worldwide. The part number will begin with a few letters such as ‘B’ to indicate AU Optronics, ‘CLAA’ to indicate Chungwa Picture Tubes or ‘LP’ to indicate LG Philips.
The next part of the code is three letters indicating the size of the laptop screen, in inches, measured diagonally from one corner to the other. This can be something like 133 to indicate a 13.3″ screen, 154 to indicate a 15.4″ screen or 173 to indicate a 17.3″ screen.
The final part of the code will indicate whether it is LED or CCFL and which version of screen it is compatible with. the final part can look something like WX4 (TL)(AB), so when put together the part number should be something similar to LP154WX4 (TL)(AB), showing the manufacturer, then screen size then variation in type.
