Little known facts about LCD monitor repair
People often don't understand just how easy LCD monitor repair can often be. Let's face it, when your LCD is involved in a disastrous accident, say, by being dropped on the floor, the LCD screen is often the component most likely to be affected.
Often enough, when this happens, the owner just takes the laptop down to the nearest service center and pays exorbitant charges to repair the laptop, charges that are absolutely not necessary to pay when you consider the fact that nine times out of ten, LCD repair is really a do it yourself job. This means that there's absolutely no need to give in to exorbitant demands at your local service center. Just follow these simple steps and you'll be able to repair your laptop's LCD screen yourself, and incidentally, will also save yourself a considerable amount of money in the process.
Remember that a cracked LCD doesn't always mean a dysfunctional one, and being able to retrieve it means an obvious saving in hard cash. Remember that you have nothing at all to lose by attempting a repair job on your damaged LCD monitor - after all, if you intend to throw it out anyway, it can only be a saving to you if you manage to salvage it and make it work after all. Remember that a repair job can easily save you a couple of hundred dollars, and in these days, when things are increasingly expensive, that's nothing to turn ones nose up at.
Now, the core of most LCD monitor repair issues usually lies with its capacitors. An LCD monitor tends to malfunction when its capacitors are shorted out. Note that I'm not talking about a cracked monitor here, but merely about a monitor that's demonstrating some functional issues.
Take a look at the screen when you boot up your laptop. Is it much dimmer than what you're used to? Does it flicker a lot? Does it have some strange lines running across it? Any or all of these things means a bad capacitor that needs replacement. Replacing it is a simple matter, but you'll need a soldering iron. Try to locate whether the faulty capacitor is on the power board or on the video board. The top an undamaged capacitor will be flat, whereas the top of a damaged capacitor will bulge upwards. These are just the sort of things you need to know to be successful at LCD monitor repair.
