need a leptop screen replacement (acer)

7 replies
Found 9th Jun 2009
Hi there, I managed to knock over my Acer aspire 15.4" laptop today and the screen cracked/broke.

Does anyone know either anywhere that is cheap to get it fixed/replaced and how much I should expect it to cost (i live in Aberdeen) or somewhere where I could but it and replace the screen myself?
Can anyone please tell me if it's difficult to do yourself?

Thanks for any help and input!

Best place to get your screen is a seller called bumblesale on ebay , strange name but very professional service. Got mine from them the other month, doddle to change. :thumbsup:

Do you not have insurance you could claim on? or if it is easier to replace it then that would be better i think

Hi folks, thanks for the replies.
Yeah, I have insurance but I think the excess is around £100 so probably not worth claiming.

It's an Acer 5685 WMLi which had a 15.4" WXGA Acer CrystalBrite LCD (16ms)

Give me a shout if anyone has the one I need, otherwise I'll probably trawl through Ebay a bit. Are the ones on Ebay official or cheap Asian replicas? Don't want to be cheap only to find that it breaks...

The one I was sent from bumblesale on ebay was a samsung panel which replaced the original samsung panel in my Fujitsu Siemens 15inch v5505. :thumbsup:
TBH non name panels are good anyway even if you do get a rebrand.
You will find that if you have an acer, most models in that 15inch line will have the same panel inside them.
Hope this helps.
