Depends on how old and out of date your laptop technology is. You can also always attach an external monitor to the laptop and divert your display onto the external monitor for you to be able to work on your existing system.

I-inc 32" flat screen turns on and then immediately goes off like maybe it overheated right away. Can anyone tell me if it's worth fixing?

does it still have sound,if not i would get a new one ,32" tv's are quite cheap at this time
even if you want to try and fix yourself the cost of replacement boards+postage isn't worth it for this size set.


ps you may be able to sell it on e'bay for parts and put the money towards a new set..

My Panasonic PT-61LCX65 has a broken it worth fixing? and can it be fixed?

No, don't waste time or money on a rear projection screen TV. Obsolete and expensive to move and repair. Move on to an LCD flat screen (with LED backlighting).

This tablet could be repaired, most likely the LCD screen needs to be replaced and power and volume buttons may also need to be replaced.
This is not a easy DIY job and you need to send it away for repairs. The repairs may not be a cost effective solution, it maybe better to put your money towards a new tablet.

My lcd screen is in some part broken,I can see the image almost 80%,but the rest is broken ,so I need to change the lcd,where to buy it.

19" replacement panel will not be worth it, you can check some of the price here: You will need to get the make and model of the LCD panel as printed on the sticker on the panel to get the correct one.
You will be better off putting the money toward new monitor.

Hi i have a sony dcr-pc55e and when i go to use it the lcd screen falls down and doesn't hold in place, do i need a new hinge or bin the camera?

Sounds like you need to have the hinge assy replaced. This should probably be done by an experienced technician. Amazon is still selling this camcorder for $585 so it is probably worth repairing...unless there is another camcorder with more bells and whistles that you have been wanting, then I would recommend putting that money towards a new one.

Hope this has helped.

I broke the screen how can I find a new one.

Usually after the screen is broken on a LCD tv it isn't economically feasible to have the screen replaced. Rear projection is a different story. It will cost more than the the tv is worth. You should sell that one for parts and put the money towards a new flatscreen. I got a flatscreen from the trash and it had a broken screen and the price for a new one was 3 grand. The tv only cost $399 now.

I can't remove the screen's of osd main menu off the monitor

Well! I would say Yes you can because it was assembled in the first place too. So if they can why can't you?

Now the question is "Is it worth spending that much time, effort and money?". What I mean is that say it will take you a minimum of 2~3 hours to replace the screen (unless you are a professional or a wizard that you know how to do it) and if a new screen cost you $100 but a new LCD monitor is worth $150. Then I would say it is NOT worth spending all that just to replace it. In that case you will be better off buying a new monitor.

But if the new screen costs you like 20 bucks and you have some time on hand, the adventure will surely be worth it. You will learn a lot too.

Hopefully this answers your question well.

My laptop screen goes white without warning every now and then. Can you explain or help me? Thanks

Usually that means the lcd is going out or the GPU has a problem. When it finally does I'd recommend a new laptop. Or u can fix it for 100 or less locally...but laptop prices have dropped so much that it's probably best to put that money towards a new faster system that has a warranty in place.

Damaged screen.

That depends on the purpose of the laptop. If you're using it for reading documetn, navigate on the internet and running old games, you can replace the crashed LCD. But a better solutuin is to find out what is the difference between a new LCD screen and a new laptop. The decision it's yours
