This service is for A1286 15.4″ Unibody Macbook Pro models that look like the laptop above. This repair service is if the LCD by itself is bad, the part that makes the picture If the part in front of the glass that you can touch is cracked, then you need glass + LCD replacement.
Glass? LCD? How should I know what’s broken?
The glass is the plexiglass part in front of the LCD. The LCD is what actually creates the image.

We don’t get dust between the glass & LCD.
No. Check our work after we’re done. We work in a very clean environment. Our room is cleaned by high quality air filtration units, and has contaminants removed from shelving, floors, and workbenches on an hourly basis. Our high end air compressor with inline filtering leaves shops using canned air in the dust(no pun intended).
We use the same parts as Apple.
It’s an LG LP154WP4-TLA1, new, Grade A+
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 scratch your existing glass.
- We remove the old adhesive and install new, proper adhesive so your glass does not fall off.
- We do not ruin your LVDS cable’s bracket trying to get it into the new LCD. This causes it to fall out eventually, which disables your display. It happens often on this model because the LVDS cable is very short, and plugs in the back of the display.
- We do not get dust from the room inbetween your glass & LCD. We operate in a clean environment.
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.
There’s a warranty on our service.
If the LCD itself malfunctions within 1 year, you’ll get a new one installed for free.
