Lots of companies are offering laptop repairs of DC jacks on laptops and LCDs replaced.

I would have thought that there were 1000s of different types of LCDs
Anyway does anyone know a UK?

There are indeed a lot of different screens.

As I'm sure you've noted, it's difficult to find a source for these in the UK.    Even many of the screens on the UK ebay site are from other countries (notably China & the US).

This isn't what you asked ... but it IS a convenient way to get the replacement screens ==> both of these companies ship internationally, and have a good selection of replacement LCD screens:

For power jacks, these folks ship internationally for an extra $6 (via mail), which doesn't seem bad ... especially if you order a few jacks at a time:

... as I noted above, even the UK ebay site has few UK sources -- usually just isolated individual parts;  no general dealers that source parts for many laptops.      The sources that have multiple parts tend to be in China or the US.
