Laptop HW like LCD replacements and power jack repairs .... where to get parts in the UK?


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.
