Can anyone recommend a good Canberra computer service, who could replace a laptop cracked screen?
I tried geeklabs and they did a pretty good job 🙂
I too need one, but can’t find any…….looks like it will now cost less to buy a new one
Damn, all too late guys, but thanks. Having it done via ATM Belco. $250 fitted.

I can do laptop screen replacements. Have been doing them through work for many years. What model and brand is the unit? If interested hit me up. brenster_673athotmail.com
Capital Laptops in Civic. Very switched on crew there.
Did an awesome job for me when junior dropped my ipod and smashed the screen.
Thanks pantsman, a nice idea, but, as I say above, all that wil get me is a $100 debit and no further forward.
Try ebay with the model number. They go for about cost plus 5% and that’s about $100 me thinks. There will be instructions about how to disassemble on the web. Look for service manual on manufacturer’s website.
Got a quote of $250 off ATM computers in Belco, may go with that.
Nice though the idea of fixing it myself may be, I’ll not risk ending up with a bin full of parts, a huge bill, and no working laptop thanks!
Depending on the laptop you should be able to replace it your self. You can buy them off ebay. We got one the other week for $85 and it was a 10 min job to replace. I would suggest taking the lcd screen out and get it’s model number then you can search based off that.
Yep, it’s the LCD below that’s gone. If it’s going to be more than $300 we’ll buy the kid a new laptop.
Thanks for the advice so far.
I had a new Dell Inspirion screen replaced by PCEZ in Gungahlin for about $250
were the only ones to answer thier phone and give me a firm quote.
Depends on if it’s the screen or the actually LCD panel below is damaged. If it’s the latter, it normally isn’t worth it.
Depending on the model and damage though, sites like iFixit (http://www.ifixit.com/Teardown) sometimes have guides, tools and parts to do it yourself.
If the LCD panel though is damaged instead of the covering screen, then you’re looking at many hundreds of dollars.
Laptop not under warranty? Checked whether its cheaper to go to a third party than the manufacturer?
I know there was one place in the middle of civic that specialised in laptop repairs but I can’t seem to find nor recall the name of it.
Do you support or oppose the construction of stage 2 of light rail from Civic to Woden?
