Why is LCD Monitor Repair a Fairly Simple Job?
Most people unconsciously associate LCD monitors with their TVs and laptops, and this makes them believe that LCD monitor repair must necessarily be a complex job. However, this is fallacy, because LCD monitors are actually rather simple devices. They don’t need much of a card or any form of circuit to run them.
It is this little detail that makes repairing them easy. As a matter of fact, most of the time repairing them would be pretty effortless, except that the parts are hard to obtain. However, that is not a hopeless case, as more and more people are realizing that there is a market for non-functional laptops from people who are willing to buy a damaged laptop for the parts. Craigslist is an excellent place to look, as is eBay.
If you can find the part you need, laptop repair is actually elementary. So let’s get down to details. What are the things that can go wrong with a laptop, and how do you deal with them. Because, as I said, an LCD monitor can run off a very simple circuit, manufacturers use a very simple system for LCD monitors. This is what makes LCD monitor repair a relatively easy preposition.
With few operating parts, there are also consequently fewer things that can go wrong, and so there are also consequently fewer things that you have to check out to isolate a fault.
One of the things that you have to check out is quite simply the bulbs that light your monitor. It may amaze you to learn this, but something as simple as a burnt out bulb can cause you problems with your monitor. You should especially look for a burnt out bulb if your monitor suddenly stopped working without any warning, and if the rest of your computer seems to be operating fairly normally. There are sometimes two bulbs lighting a monitor display, and if just half your screen is lit, it’s a sure indication that one of these bulbs has burnt out.
If you open the monitor up and find one of these bulb dark and refusing to light you should nevertheless exchange the bulb with its twin to see whether it lights up. If the twin lights up, the bad bulb needs to be replaced. On the other hand, if the working bulb does not light up, it means that inverter board that powers that socket it spoiled and needs replacement instead. LCD monitor repair is based upon simple rules like these.
