Question about Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop Flamingo Pink

1 Answer

Can a cracked notebook screen be replaced?

My son rolled his Tonka truck into my Dell C 640 notebook, and cracked the screen. It looks fine while its off, but when you turn it on it has a long jagged line down the screen. I really can't afford to purchase a new notebook, so if there is a way to fix it and still keep my lights on?

wildchildsmom I have the same problem, and Dell will charges $500 to replace the lcd screen if you don't have extended care warrenty. Is there any other way to get the lcd replaced without going through dell

Hey,

Yes, You will need to buy a replacement screen.
Few possible sources, you will have to look for them yourself:
www.ebay.com
www.pchub.com

see if one is available on those two sites.

When you have a extra display, its easy to take the old screen off the laptop, and then place the new one in place.

A service manual will help you with the process. What is the model of your dell notebook and I'll see if a service manual is availabe.

Thanks,
Ekse

    I would suggest to buy the whole display with its cover if the old one is damaged. but you should be able to replace just the panel inside the cover.

I thought the batteries were dead but the truck seems to have died - the batteries are fine - any ideas?


Hi Charlie :) Couple of questions;
1. How old is your son
2. Is Charlie allowed to get wet (check warnings on box or manual)
3. Did you buy it new from an authorized reseller?

I could not find warranty information on Chuck specifically but Tonka in general has a lifetime warranty. According to amazon.com, it has been discontinued. But all is not lost - Chuck is licensed to the following company who is recommended by Hasbro to contact regarding Chuck products (Chuck not working, etc.). See if contacting them will get you some results.

The motorized Tonka items are licensed to the following company. They manufacture, distribute and support the products. Please contact them for further information:
Funrise Toy Corp.
7811 Lemona Avenue
Van Nuys, CA 91405
Phone: 800-882-3808 (U.S. only)

My 5 year old Dell Inspiron 710m screen is cracked. My son hit it with a remote and it has black fuzzy stuff throughout it that is spreading. What can I do?


So sorry about the cracked screen. But the solution to cracked screens is replacement.
But pending the time it can be replaced, if you have a desktop monitor, you can connect it to it.
If not, a flat screen TV could do the job of display, using the monitor display cable.

Hope that helped?
Success.

I have a insprion 1545 that half of the screen is white with vertical lines on a white back ground. The other half is fine but can only view the left half of the screen. I hooked it to an external monitor...


It is a screen problem. You have to replace the LCD. It is either cracked or the electronics of the LCD is faulty. Find the part number on the back of the LCD and look for it on ebay.

Replacing LCD Screen


it depends on if the exisiting invertor is fine or not. If the panel is being replaced because it was cracked etc, then the chances are the invertor is fine and will not need replacing. Obviously if you don't get the same replacement panel that Dell originally used, then you may have to buy a different invertor & figure out the wiring connections to attach it to the motherboard.

Lost Tonka part


I can't tell you how to get a replacement part (Funrise was SUPREMELY unhelpful for me, too), but we devised a solution for our broken truck.....cut a black hair elastic and thread it through the two holes of the part that would hold the fork. Tie a knot so that it sits inside the little cavity inside that part. Your kiddo can then attach the garbage can to the lifting mechanism by using the elastic--works almost as well as the fork. Hope this helps!
