So, I guess you’re here looking for a way to get your 11″ Macbook Air Cracked Screen repaired.
Well, let me tell you will not be the first or last person break the screen. If only I had documented this process many years ago, it may have saved Macbook Air owners a lot of money.
The myth is that these screens cannot be repaired, in some cases this is true. For example, liquid ingress INTO the screen, or a hole punched right into the back-light diffuser.
In all other cases, where there are annoying vertical and horizontal lines visible or the display has been cracked, these are prime cases for replacement of the LCD Poloriser.
Can this repair be done at home ?
Absolutely, however you will need access to a GOOD hot air station, double sided sticky tape, the actual poloriser, lots of practice & most importantly patience.
We’re quite good at doing this now, only because we have replaced hundreds of these screens over the years. I’ll admit the first few where a disaster, we had no one to show us the way, no guides, videos just a willing to do what Authorised Apple Service providers & Apple Stores stated was impossible.
So below are a few snippets of how we go about repairing these screens. The one in these pictures was a D.I.Y gone wrong. The owner had a go at dong this by following the many YouTube videos, suffice to say, it didn’t go too well. The saving grace, they didn’t damage the delicate back-light diffuser layers, so this is a screen we can save from landfill.
The above set of images show the removal of the backlight flex cable and the eDP cable.
The old cracked polariser has been removed. A little heat is needed when doing so.
The new poloriser has been installed and backlight and eDP cables re-attached
The final stages include, re-attaching the Bezel with the use of some good quality double sided sticky tape, blue peter style….
And there you go, a perfectly refurbished display, using original quality parts.
If you feel you cant complete the above Computrix can replace the digitiser for a total of £135.00 inc VAT., providing a 1 year warranty on the screen.
