The screen is in fact replaceable put you will most likely find that it is more cost effective to by a new machine unless you get real lucky on e-bay getting a new screen. You can buy a new laptop for roughly $500 and a pretty decent one for $800 now days but that screen will run you about $700 so as you can see, it's pretty much a better deal to buy a new machine and transfer the drive.

Hi:
The most likely cause is the LCD panel is damaged, but you should verify that the laptop works ok, by hooking up an external monitor and see if you have a good display on it. If so, your laptop is worth fixing. A new LCD panel is approx $100 + installation, so it is probably worth fixing!

Dog knocked printer to floor. Now printer cartridge carrier won't move. Getting error 5100. Unfixable?


Hi Laura, Most likely the jolt from falling to the floor must have knocked the ink cartridge carrier out of alignment or jammed it along the carrier rail...have the dog knock it over on its opposite side...no, no, no- just kidding!!

Using a flashlight, can you see any obstructions, pieces of paper that may have jammed, or any broken pieces?

I don't know how long you've had this printer for, but if you have to send it out for repair and it's going to cost more than 50% than buying a new one, don't repair it; you're throwing good money after bad...btw, dog proof the new one...ARF! Hope this helps :)

The screen is replaceable. You can buy only the screen or the top part ($150). Go on ebay and search for “mx8741 lcd”. It is not a complicated repair

Desk top computer crt monitor


Time to buy a new monitor, especially if you are still running a CRT monitor.

There is nothing you can do without taking the monitor to a repair shop, and that would cost more than the value of the monitor.

Hitachi 51g500 screen gone black


Yes worth repairing but not a crt problem. the crt's are powered by a high voltage transformer and sometimes it's caps that goes bad and in turn knocks out the crt's. but they are ok, it's in the high voltage line.
