A screen is comprised of 3 layers;
Many issues with smartphone screens can be solved with a screen replacement. Problems with one layer of the screen assembly, whether it is the glass, touchscreen, or LED display, are usually best fixed by replacing the entire three layer component.

Thinking about a do-it-yourself screen replacement?
Consider whether you are comfortable with the following process (summary) and use of the tools required.
Example of an at-home Samsung Galaxy S5 screen replacement:
(Note that this process differs significantly from the proper procedure using Samsung-supplied tools and equipment which we undertake as an Authorized Samsung Smart Service Repair Centre.

Replacing a laptop screen yourself can be way easier than replacing a screen assembly on a phone.
BUT -- there are considerations to be addressed.
Matching the correct screen to your phone is an easy task, matching the correct screen for your laptop can be somewhat more challenging.
Indeed you should disassemble the laptop and inspect the screen before ordering your new replacement LCD/LED screen. Store the parts and screws together in a safe place or re-assemble it and disassemble it again when you receive your screen to avoid losing any of the essential parts and screws.
Even assuming you have been able to source the correct part - you may find out after performing the replacement that the screen wasn't even the problem -- display issues on a laptop (in the absence of physically damage) are not always as cut-and-dry as a simple replacement.
When disassembling - care must be taken not to damage the bezel (the thin plastic covering around the screen which covers the electronics). Scuffs, scratches and nicks on the bezel will be especially noticeable -- they will be right there in your face every time you use the laptop.
The LCD, and touchscreen (if equipped) connectors are fragile and it is not uncommon for us to encounter damaged or destroyed mainboard connectors when laptops are brought to us after an unsuccessful screen replacement attempt. Often damaging these connectors renders the laptop very costly or even non-economical to repair -- usually the mainboard will need to be replaced.
Part numbers although very similar across screen manufacturers can refer to very different screens - even a matching part number from a different manufacturer will likely not fit your laptop.
Cable connections may be millimeters to short or even a different pinout - installing the wrong screen with a connector that fits risks further damage to your laptop.
Trust the experts at TechKnow Space to replace your laptop screen in 2 Hours. We carry almost all laptop screens in stock - and special order in less common screens in as little as 1 business day.
“My Dell Inspiron 1525 is not displaying anything and I can see cracks behind the glass. What’s wrong with my laptop?”
The LED display inside your laptop can stop working for a variety of reasons, and without a working screen on your laptop, you will definitely find day to day usage impossible.
Many models of modern laptops have two separate layers that make up a laptop screen – a glass or plastic outer layer and bezel, and then a LED display panel.
Because these are different layers of the screen, each piece can fail or break individually. Replacing the screen is not an easy task to accomplish on your own.
Instead of struggling to use your laptop with a broken screen, visit the Techknow Space!
Our convenient locations in Toronto, near the Rogers Centre, and in Mississauga, across from Square One, keep all the most common or popular laptop model screen replacements in stock, so you can always find a repair solution with us, 7 days a week.

“What are some good resources for DIY Macbook screen replacement?”
The Techknow Space doesn’t recommend do-it-yourself repairs for any device, but if you’re brave enough to try, the first step is to find a reputable seeming source of replacement parts.
Finding a suitable replacement iMac or Macbook screen can be a risky business – finding an online store that seems trustworthy, and then hoping the part finally ships to you without damage or defects is not as simple or easy as it sounds.
Once you’ve received the actual physical component and it isn't visibly broken or incorrect, completing the repair is a whole other story entirely.
If you are lucky enough to have managed to match up your Macbook with the right replacement screen, now all you have to do is disassemble your iMac or Macbook, pop the new screen in, put everything back together, and hope you didn’t mess anything up in the process.
Don’t put yourself in that stressful situation and risk ruining your Macbook forever. Skip the headaches and frustration, and visit the Techknow Space instead.
The in house experts at the Techknow Space are prepared, 7 days a week, with high quality replacement parts for all Macbook, Macbook Air, Macbook Pro and iMac screen sizes and models.
You can drop by at any time to one of the Techknow Space’s easy to access locations in Mississauga or Toronto and turn your broken or malfunctioning Macbook screen into a beautiful, shiny new screen within one hour, you never need an appointment.

“What are good resources for DIY iPad 4 screen repairs?”
The Techknow Space doesn’t recommend anyone trying to complete a screen repair on any tablet, but some devices are definitely more complicated than others.
The iPad screen removal process is very complicated because it requires you to carefully heat up the adhesive holding the glass layer to the rest of the iPad.
This heating process is easy to get wrong, and breaking the glass touchscreen layer on your iPad while trying to open it up is a very real and likely possibility.
Another problem you might encounter with separating the glass from your iPad is scratching or otherwise damaging the second layer of the screen, the display.
The LCD is separate from the glass, but that definitely doesn’t mean it isn’t in any danger from a mistake or slip of your hand while trying to DIY an iPad repair.
So now you’ve miraculously managed to remove all of the adhesive strips under the glass without breaking it. All you need to do now is get the screen off without ruining any of the cables attached to it.
Yay! You finally reached the USB charging port component. Replace and reassemble – fingers crossed you did everything right and you’ve fixed your problem on the first attempt…
But instead of going through all of that craziness, there is an easy and fast alternative – visiting the Techknow Space.
