Lenovo Laptop Screen repairs Edinburgh

Lenovo Laptop Screen Replacement

Lenovo Idea pad Screen Replacement

A Customer handed in his girlfriends Lenovo Idea Pad laptop for a screen replacement.  He thinks she managed to smashed the display whilst the laptop was in a ruck sack.  This is actually quite common.  Students tend to have a laptop in their ruck sack along with heavy text books.  The weight of the books is sometimes enough to apply enough pressure on the laptop lid to crack the display.  Anyway we assume that’s what had happened, we gave the laptop the full works.  Testing everything before fitting a replacement display.

Its good for the customer that this Lenovo laptop is just a display and not a touch screen version.  The touch screen version would have been a lot more expensive.  In the end it’s a fairly bog standard laptop screen replacement.

As Lenovo is the biggest laptop manufacturer at the moment, we do see a lot of these laptops in for  Laptop Screen Replacements.  They say the biggest doesn’t necessarily mean the best.

As you can see from the picture below.  The laptop is partially stripped and read for the screen to be replaced.

Lenovo Laptop Screen Replacement

After the screen arrived, it was checked to make sure all was in good order.  Before fitting a replacement laptop screen we disconnected the battery.  Always good practice to do this.  And from the picture below can see we have a Lenovo Laptop back action.

Laptop Keyboard Repairs Edinburgh

Laptop Keyboard Repairs Edinburgh

Laptop Keyboard Repairs Edinburgh.  This is a strange one.  The customer reported that various keys had stopped working on this Acer Aspire v13 laptop.  The customer assured me that no liquid had been over the laptop and that it was well looked after.  On taking the laptop apart we confirmed no signs of any liquid or anything that would cause the keyboard to stop working.   We checked the ribbon cable that connects the keyboard to the laptop.  We checked the keyboard socket with a microscope and found no damage.

This Acer Aspire laptop keyboard is inserted from the bottom of the laptop into the palm rest.  With Laptop Keyboard Repairs we have 2 options.  Replace the full palm rest including the keyboard.  Or we could take the keyboard out of the palm rest and repair the keyboard that way.

We choose to replace the palm rest with the keyboard already fitted.  We just needed to connect the touch pad.  Fortunately the customer was correct.  No liquid had been spilled inside the laptop and we could find no defect inside the laptop.  Changing the palm rest along with the keyboard got the laptop working correctly again.

Microsoft Surface Repairs Edinburgh

Microsoft Surface Repairs Edinburgh

Recently we received this Microsoft Surface Tablet through the post for repairs.  On looking at the tablet the back of the case looked to be slightly deformed.  We initially thought that this would be a waste of time.  Still we tried our best to repair it to our usual high standards.  As you can see from the picture the screen had broken into bits and shards.  On this Microsoft Tablet I think the screen had been replaced before.  This is because the glue holding the display in was very strong.  Usually the display comes off in about 10 minutes after preheating the display.  Not in this case, it too over an hour.

As you can see from the picture it really is a mess, cracks and shards of glass everywhere.  You can imagine how long it too us to get the display off and clean the remaining glue from the body of the Microsoft Surface Tablet.  After what seemed like an eternity we finally have a chassis of the tablet to glue the new screen and digitizer into the body of the tablet.  Eventually below we have the finished article, as good as new.

Mac Repairs Edinburgh


This Macbook Air was handed in for repairs.  A1466 Was the model number.  The chap was local and stays across the road from our shop.  It was working fine until he spilled some coffee on it.  He thought he had got away without causing any damage until the next time he tried to switch the Apple Macbook Air on again.  We see a lot of these liquid Damaged Macbooks and Macbook Air’s needing repairs.

Yes thats right it was totally dead.   Seeing as he had already purchased a new Macbook we set to work on repairing the motherboard.  We found liquid damage on and around the motherboard, we had parts in stock that would fix this.  We thought the keyboard would need to be changed but after stripping a cleaning it came back to life.

This was a good result and a great little job to keep us occupied.  The customer already purchased a replacement so I think this one will be sold on after the repairs are completed.

Macbook Pro Repairs Edinburgh

Apple Macbook Pro Repairs Edinburgh

Macbook Pro Repairs Edinburgh

An Edinburgh based customer dropped this Apple Macbook Pro in for repairs after a liquid spill.  This was a nightmare job, the customer managed to spill liquid over this Apple Macbook  Pro.  I think it was a 2018 model.  Anyway after spilling the liquid the customer thought they had got away with it.  This was until she let the battery run out and then attached the charger to the USB-C charger socket.  From then the laptop was totally dead and would not charge or switch on at all.

The chance of repair with a job like this is very small.  We started by taking out the motherboard and cleaning all the liquid off.  We then identified parts on the motherboard that had been damaged by the liquid and repaired these.  After everything dried out we reassembled the Mac and checked it with a multi meter and everything seemed fine……but is wasn’t.

On further investigation we found a problem with the USB C charging socket, repair wasn’t possible but we did manage to find a replacement.  After further checks before switching on you can see the result.  One saved Apple Macbook Pro.
