Lenovo Thinkpad E14 broken screen replacement

This Lenovo Thinkpad E14 came for a broken screen replacement. It has colourful lines across the screen. Indicating a broken screen that needs replacement.

New generation laptops are designed around thin frames, which unfortunately does not provide the sturdiness and support needed for the screen and hinges. As seen on our common laptop hinge repairs and laptop screen replacement sections.

Lenovo Thinkpad E14 broken screen replacement process

Replacing these screens is a straightforward repair on some models, however, there are other models which has the screen glued in and requires delicate separation of the screen from the back cover. Luckily this is not the case with this model. Lenovo implemented a new type of stretch-release tape. Which if pulled properly releases the adhesive which holds the screen to the back case.

We miss the old days when we could just unscrew 4 screws and the screen was out. These days we need to go to extended lengths to replace laptop parts without doing extra damage to the surrounding components.

Yet another case of planned obsolescence. If this had to go through Lenovo authorised repair centre, it would have required a whole top case assembly replacement in most cases. With the increased cost of course.

Fitting a new screen is a straightforward process. This model uses a standard definition screen, hence the cost is also reasonable.

Please note: This is not educational material. It is rather a showcase of the services we offer.
Therefore, it should be used as general guidance on what to expect of such repairs.
In case you have a similar device and need the repair, always rely on professionals. These are sensitive electronic devices, and small mistakes may cause irreversible electronic damage. Which may require whole part replacement for 2 or 3 times the cost.

Repaired, not Replaced!

We are committed to reducing e-waste in Australia. How we do it is by educating our customers on the repairability and longevity of their devices, as well as providing affordable Laptop Repairs here in Adelaide.
Although our best intentions and hard work, this is not an easy task. Customers must accept that cost of high-quality electronic repairs, is between a third and half of the price of a new device. However, with the current trend of planned obsolescence in electronic design, we see more and more Laptops having shorter lifespans. To tackle that, while we do our repairs we target common planned obsolescence engineering design mistakes to ensure we extend the life expectancy of the Laptops we repair. Check some of our Laptop Repair Cases to get an idea of the process.

That said, if we buy a new one or write it off via insurance, it does not guarantee that the new one will not meet the same fate as the older one pretty soon.
As matter of fact, quite often we see accidents reoccurring within less than 2-year gaps. If we can save 1000$ or even 500$ today by repairing our faulty Laptop is great. That’s an extra half Laptop cost ready to be spent on another one when the time comes or our need for performance increases.
When that time comes is up to us to buy a new one or keep pushing the one we have, but delaying it by a year or three is always a good starting point and saves another abandoned Laptop from polluting our one and only Planet.
