Cracked screen on laptop

If you've had an accident with your laptop / notebook computer or tablet (like Ipad, Ipad2, Ipad3, Ipad4, Ipad Mini or the Samsung Galaxy Note range) then you might have a cracked or smashed screen.

This is not the end of the world and quite often this damage can be repaired at a cost effective price.

This is especially the case if the machine is still working fine and just the panel is broken (in the case of a laptop / notebook) or just the glass is broken (and the picture still looks OK, in the case of a Ipad or tablet).

We can also assist you with assessing your machine and providing a report to your Insurance Company if the damage is more substantial. Often we will find that a screen replacement will be around the same price, or less than your insurance excess anyway.

In order to provide you with a quote on the repair of your smashed screen we need to know some key information:

  • Make and Model of your device (For Example Toshiba Satellite L500 Notebook - model PSLS01-016002 or Apple Ipad3 32GB Wifi/3G)
  • Description of what is wrong - for example is is just the LCD screen damaged (no damage to the plastic surrounds, or the hinges of the screen, or in the case of an Ipad, can you still see the picture (and the damage is just to the glass?, and is there any damage to the corners of the Ipad)
  • If you wish us to provide a report to your Insurance Company, we will need to know the name of the Insurer, the Claim number and the branch or division that you've been dealing with.

You can drop in or courier us your damaged machine in for us to take a look at - we can generally give you a good idea what the likely costs to repair will be within 1 working day of receiving your equipment.

How much will it cost?

The cost to repair a laptop or notebook computer with smashed LCD screen starts at as little as $150.00 plus GST (for modern notebooks using the most common 15.6" LED panel). Because there are so many models of notebooks with many different models of panel, the price for less common (and older) panels can be more expensive than this. We do repair Apple notebooks with damaged LCD screens; the price can be higher for these.

Please treat these prices as an indication only - once we know exactly what we're dealing with we can give you an accurate quote.
