Laptop Backlight Repair

backligh-issuesHas it suddenly all gone dark?

In addition to replacing cracked or broken laptop LCD screens, we can also fix laptop backlight problems for all makes and models of laptops including we can repair it for all laptop manufacturers including Acer, Advent, Alienware, Apple (Macbook Air and Macbook Pro), Asus, Compaq, Dell, Fujitsu, HP, NEC and Packard Bell. Repairs can save a lot of money, because many times a new screen is not necessary.

Our laptop backlight repair process starts with a test of the display inverter, which provides power to the back light. This is a board inside the screen which outputs over 1000 volts.

If the inverter is not at fault, then we test the cold cathode fluorescent lamp (CCFL), and if it's broken, we'll replace it.

You see, if the laptop CCFL is bad, most repair companies will tell you that you have to replace the entire screen as they won't or can't replace a backlight - but that is not the case at Laptop PAL. We can replace the CCFL 90% of the time, saving you at least half the price of a new screen.

Cold cathode tube problems usually present themselves as a hissing coming from the screen, a red glow in the LCD, or just no backlight at all.
