Laptops are very important devices in peoples’ live nowadays. But you can never operate your laptop without its screen. That is why you have to replace the screen immediately it is damaged. But sometimes, you may not know the amount of cash you should set aside for you to replace your laptop screen.
This article aims at solving this problem for you. It is going to present you with the typical cost of laptop screen replacement
There are various situations when replacing your laptop screen which will have different costs. These situations include:
1)When you break your laptop screen but it is still covered by the warranty that your manufacturer gave you
2)When the screen is broken and it is not covered by the warranty but you still want to use the manufacturer to replace your screen.
3)When you decide to use local business people who offer screen replacement services.
4)When you wish to repair the broken screen yourself.
Let’s start with the first one:
WHEN YOUR LAPTOP IS STILL COVERED BY THE WARRANTY
When this is the case, the price for fixing your computer screen can be as much as zero dollars. The only cost that is involved is you delivering the laptop to the manufacturer and convincing them that your laptop is still covered by the warranty.
This is, in essence, the cheapest situation that you will ever come across. The only problem is that you will very rarely find yourself in such a situation.
So, let’s look at the second situation
YOUR LAPTOP IS NOT COVERED BY THE WARRANTY BUT YOU WANT MANUFACTURER TO REPAIR IT
This is by far the most expensive situation you can ever find yourself in. You will have to pay for shipping, labor, parts and the applicable taxes. This can bring the amount you pay for your laptop to get fixed up from zero dollars in the first situation to between 200 and 600 dollars. This is two-thirds of the amount of money you had to part with when you bought the laptop.
An added disadvantage that you get in this situation is having to wait for weeks or even months before you can access your laptop again. This is due to the shipping process.
WHEN YOU USE BUSINESS PEOPLE OFFERING SCREEN REPLACEMENT SERVICES.
In this situation, you just find the most reputable laptop repair business close to you. You can ask friends and family or you can even use Google.
Once you find the best professionals, you take your laptop to them you get charged for the labor and money to acquire the needed spare parts. This can add up to a total of about 150 to 300 dollars.
WHEN YOU FIX THE LAPTOP SCREEN YOURSELF
This is cheaper than using a local repair shop although it is very risky. If you don’t know what you are doing, consider taking your laptop to someone who knows what he or she is doing.
Otherwise, you may end up destroying your laptop even more and hence paying more than what you would have paid for just fixing the screen.
In this situation, the only thing you spend money on is in purchasing a screen which costs about 100 dollars.
