You can't do much if you can't see what you're doing on your Macbook. Your screen is a vital part of daily operation for your Macbook. Most Macbooks operate on a Retina display, while some others use an OLED. We stock screens for all models of Macbook Pro and Macbook Air. All repairs, are typically completed within 48 hours. Rest assured, we do not use aftermarket parts, we source original components.
Common Macbook Screen Issues
Macbooks operate like any other laptop, using hinges to secure their screens in place. Typically, the hinges are held to the main body of the Macbook by three screws. Over time, hinges just like on a door, loosen. The loosening of hinges will increase the possibility of damaging your screen.
Hinges don't typically fail at the same rate on both sides. The side you favor when opeing your screen is the most affected. This causes distortion when opening and closing the laptop, as there is greater pressure on one side than the other.
When your screen is at the point that you can't see anything but lines, it must be replaced. We will check that all components are secured first prior to replacing your screen. In our experience, these types of concerns require a full replacement.
Your Macbook may be on, and loaded into the operating system but you can barely see it. Macbook screens operate with a backlight that shines through the screen, illuminating whatever is being presented. When the backlight fails, we need to address the screen OR motherboard level components. Problems with the backlight are not always associated with the screen itself.
If your screen begins to separate from the body of the Macbook, you likely have a hinge problem. We will do what we can to salvage the existing hinges and screen. In some extreme cases, a new screen may be required.
How Long Does It Take To Fix?
Most screen level repairs are completed within 24-48 hours. In the rare circumstance that parts may not be available, an additional 48 hours may be required to source. Regardless, we keep our clients informed daily on the progress of their device.
We also take the time to use our thermal imaging camera to confirm there are no additional issues with your device. Regardless if your device is powred on and operational, we don't want you to have further issues down the road.
