Some Things You Absolutely Must Know About LCD Monitor Repair
Perhaps the thing I should talk about first of all, when discussing LCD monitor repair, is how bad the quality of the parts these days is. I’m not talking about the main components themselves, but rather about the parts that make up those components. For example, there are the capacitors that power the average LCD monitor. These capacitors can last for years if they are of good quality.
However, if they happen to be of bad quality, they can often fail a few months after purchase. This is a direct result of the massive outsourcing to China that companies are engaged in these days. While outsourcing may drop production costs, it can also reduce quality in difficult to see areas, such as the capacitors used in your LCD’s monitor. Of course, if your laptop happens to be in the warranty period, you don’t have much of an issue. You just take the laptop in to the service center, and they will replace the faulty parts.
Nevertheless, I still think it’s a bad system because, having repaired laptops for some years, I notice a definite degradation in the quality of the parts used in newer laptops. The fact that these parts are of such bad quality means that they are inevitably going to fail, which means that a person who for any reason has a laptop which for any reason isn’t within the guarantee period, has a laptop that is inevitably going to fail and leave him with expensive repairs on his hands.
The good news is that LCD monitor repair is really very easy, so if you have an LCD that fails due to a substandard part, you can easily replace that part with one that is much better in quality. In other words, repairing your laptop can actually massively improve the quality of the part replaced, since the part that you replace will almost always be better than the quality of the original part.
Once you go through the technical manual for your laptop, which can easily be acquired online, repairing your laptop is simply a matter of being handy with a soldering iron. Most issues that can occur with a laptop’s LCD screen, for example, are simply caused by substandard capacitors. Replace the damaged capacitors with good ones from your local electronics store, and you may well find that your laptop works even better than before, and more reliably. So LCD monitor repair can leave you with a laptop that works better than ever before.
