How does this work?
If you live in NYC, come to our store. We’ll have your screen replaced in ten minutes while you watch.
If you don’t live in New York City, purchase this service using the add to cart button at the bottom. Send your machine to the mail in service address in our banner at the top. It’ll be fixed and sent back to you in under 12 hours after arrival. Your package MUST REQUIRE A SIGNATURE so we can sign for it, and it must be packaged properly, with a note or a receipt inside indicating who you are & that you purchased our service.
Where do you get these parts from? Is this an Apple LCD?
It’s an LG, Samsung, AUO, LG, Chi Mei, or Toshiba. Regardless of the brand or model, what they all have in common is they are purchased direct from the manufacturer and are brand new, grade A+. You can always purchase the part by itself from our supply company here – the LP133WX1-TLA1 is the most used LCD for our service.
Unlike the many imitator services that buy these parts off eBay from the middlemen, we buy direct from the manufacturer. If you’re thinking of going with someone else, there’s a good chance they’re buying the part from us right after you checkout with them! We buy grade A+ LCDs in quantites of 200-1000 from Chi Mei & LG. The reason for our fast turnaround and low price is that we are the parts source.
What separates you from the guy on craigslist who beats your price by $15??
Every device has something about it that makes it tricky to work on.
- We do not clinch your LCD’s backlight wire on the clutch cover, which causes the LCD backlight to die.
- We do not break the plastic clips that go around the bezel which causes the bezel to not sit straight.
- We do not use a 30 pin LCD or “compatible” LCD in place of the original. Your brightness control will still work when we’re done.
Why is this price so low?
Most other repair centers buy the LCDs off eBay or other middlemen 5-10 at a time, because for them, this is a side business. Or, they are a general service company that performs many different repairs, so stocking 1000 LCDs for one machine makes no sense.
Our bread & butter, 12 hours a day, is providing screen replacement service & acquisitions of rare & discontinued LCD screens from the manufacturer. Our supplier, buys the parts we use from Toshiba, AUO, LG, Samsung, Chi Mei, Chung Hwa, and receives excellent quantity discounts for purchases of 50-100 cartons worth.
What kind of warranty does this come with?
If the LCD itself malfunctions within 1 year, you’ll get a new one installed for free.
