Replacement LCD for 20

I am looking for a replacement LCD panel for a 20" iMac (model MA589LL). My iMac has a cracked screen not covered by warranty. The Apple Part number is 661-3881. The manufacturer's part number is LG Philips LM201W01-SLA3. I have not been able to find a supplier of these panels outside of Apple repair facilities, who want between $750-900. It just doesn't make sense, when I can purchase a brand new Apple 20" Cinema Display for ~$500. I have been told that the cinema display panel and the iMac panel aren't the same, but it just seems really high. There are apparently distributors that have this panel, but they won't sell to consumers. Anyone know where I can get a replacement panel for a reasonable cost?

Re: Replacement LCD for 20

You might try
Right now it says to call to see if they have the part. They are probably not going to be any cheaper, but it's worth a shot.

Other than that keep looking on eBay.

Broken screen

The tap 20 is new and uses a proprietary screen, you should be covered under SONY's 24 month warranty. SONY has not released tap 20 replacement screens to OEMs yet. At least my repair shop cannot order them. You will probably have to go through SONY for at least a few more months. Even big shops like Best Buy must send them out to SONY.

Even when they do release them, the only way to replace the screen is to clip the warranty sticker behind the storage drive in the back, which voids any warranty you may have. If you don't take it to a SONY authorized shop, you will lose your warranty.

Cracked screen



NOT a Dell Inspiron One 19 Service Manual, but may help you in disassembling yours, to replace the LCD screen,

With this style, as most all-in-one desktops; you have to remove the Stand, Back Cover, etc, to get to the Display Bezel. Then screws are removed around the Display Bezel, and access to the LCD screen.

You NEED to wear an ESD wrist strap, and connect it to a good ground source. Average cost is $3 to $6.

Well !! my computer is 2 yrs old and there is a shade difference in the screen,a vertical line has appeared and the upper part of the screen has faded,the mouse is also not working on the upper part,it is...

Unfortunately, the screen has failed. If it is still under warranty, contact the MFG for a replacement. If it is out of warranty, you may be able to buy a replacement screen from the MFG. An alternative is to connect an external monitor. Buying a new LCD monitor will probably cost less than a replacement screen. But you will give up the mobility of the laptop.
Good luck!

I bought acer v193hq 8months back. now the screen is broken. what should i do can i claim warranty what will it cost me

From the Acer web site: "Cracked LCD displays are not covered under the normal warranties and should be serviced through our out-of-warranty process."
I would suggest you just buy another LCD. I recently bought one, new, on sale for less than $100.
If this answers your question, I'd appreciate 4 thumbs. I do this for fun and do not get paid.

Where should i go to get my screen fixed? i dropped my laptop and now the bottom right corner is cracked and black.

Unless you purchased an "all-perils" warranty when you purchased your laptop, you'll have to pay a qualified technicican to disassemble your laptop, remove the LCD screen, order a replacement screen, install it, reassemble your laptop, and test that it works.

Say $200 for a new screen, and $75 for "labour".

You need to get it repaired or if the product is under warranty contact the manufacturer.

I bought a new laptop through the Community Health Network and now have a tiny crack in the monitor that is making the monitor blurry. I don't know how the crack happened, but I need it fixed.

Check with the seller on a warranty. If no warranty, check with the manufacturer for repair / replacement services. If neither of these are workable, you can search ebay for a replacement screen, and DIY.

Hey i have a compaq presairo m2000 and my screen cracked and my freind has a 15" lcd screen an the model is a LTN150XB-LO3 MODEL WOULD THIS SCREEN FIT MY LAPTOP M2000 PRESARIO

i,d say no. This model of screen is for gateway MS20S-MS325X-M520.
Or Some Models Of:- Toshiba-Fujitsu-Siemens-Dell.
If you think about attempting the swap, check the cable connectors. and wiring. also ensure the inverter boards are the same or equivalent. if the panel is not identical or a suitable manufactured replacement. you may damage your computers motherboard.
