UKSL stocks new LCD panels for thousands of makes and models of laptops.
Used screens are also available in Grade A condition which have been reclaimed from unrepairable laptops. A used LCD panel can save considerable expense and is good for the environment.
Before we can give an exact quote for a screen repair we will need to strip the laptop screen down to check the LCD model number and connection type. Sometimes a specific model of laptop may have been built with different LCD panels and pin configurations. We also occasionally see a model of laptop built with either a Cathode backlight or an LED backlight.
Cathode backlight : Used in older laptops, less environmentally friendly due to more power consumption and the fluorescent tube contains mercury. Cathode backlit LCD panels require a separate circuit board located below the screen known as an inverter which charges up thousands of volts.
LED backlight : A strip of high intensity SMD LEDs are used to illuminate the screen. Much more reliable than delicate cathode backlights and no extra inverter is needed. A very low amount of energy is needed to power LED backlights giving better battery life.
