A Laptop has many advantages compared to PC like portability, size, storage etc. Broadly laptops can be classified based on the screen size. In Mac Retinal screen is available which give crystal clear display. There are lot of reasons that leads to the replacement of laptop screens. Here are the few reasons that lead to the replacement of laptop screens.

A Laptop, no matter how strong cannot be protected from physical damage which is caused due to carelessness. Any crack, tear or spills in the screen are caused by physical damage. Laptops are made thinner and smaller and due to this the weight of the screen also becomes reduced which gives more chance for physical damage of screen to take place. Even a very small amount of pressure can break the screen and so you should be very careful when it comes to physical damage. Physical damage can cause tearing of picture screen, black spots, distorted areas and spills which produce flickering or no picture at all.

Longevity plays an important role. Any electronic item will be replaced based on its life span. Life of the item can also cause few problems just like humans have in their older age. When you have used laptops over years it naturally gives out from wear and tear. The older laptops had a fluorescent backlight and inverter that are naturally prone to failure due to their exhausting life span. Problems happen to occur within the three years of its purchase. In old laptops when the inverter encounters problem it flickers and then show pitch black screen whereas the problems encountered by backlights indicates a warning signal. If that is not noticed properly then the screen goes dark. In the latest LCD screens the circuits are the cause. They may get burnt due to various reason and damage the screen and shows no picture.

Laptops are being used by huge number of people and in order to meet the demand it is manufactured in large numbers. So obviously it might lead to manufacture defects. If the error is not encountered by the manufacturers then it might get ended up in your laptop. It is hard to find the manufacture defect as it does not show any symptom initially. You will have low display quality for which you will not give much importance. Then it show symptoms like flickering, poor display, distortion, not able to customize properly etc. You are lucky if your system is under warranty so that you can contact the manufacturer and fix the issue or replace the screen.

Most of the screen issues can be fixed by replacing the screen. But if there is a problem in the laptop display due to any other issues then it gets complicated. There are lot of small issues like bad connection of cable can also cause the display to appear black. So before contacting the professional make sure that all the connections and other basic things are perfect.
