Cracked screen - No Onsite Repair!

Q: Cracked screen - No Onsite Repair!

I bought a Lenovo 910 in December. Upgraded the warranty to onsite and added the damage protection. Good thing I did. I now have a cracked screen. So, you say, good thing you got those extra coverages, right? Hold on just a minute. I've learned that "cracked screens" cannot be replaced in the field. They have to be shipped to a repair depot. I'm so frustrated I could scream. Cracked screen (with no trauma I'm aware of) and now I'm told to repair it I need to be with out it for who knows how long. The story could have gone like this: "Contacted Lenovo, a tech came to may office, replaced the screen and now I'm right as rain! Lenovo is awesome!" Instead, the story goes like this: "Contacted Lenovo. No joy. I have a new computer with a cracked screen that I must now use in a cracked state for the rest of its life because I cannot be without my means of making a living for who knows how long. Lenovo sucks!"

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I purchased a new laptop three months ago and noticed a crack when I recieved it, within the week I called HP Support and had it sent to a repair facility. The estimated delivery date was delayed a total of five times until I finally requested that the device be sent back to me after about a three month wait period. The repair method appeared to take a far too unreasonable amount of time and I was losing a lot of productivity during that period. Is there some other HP support method which is quicker where I could get a fully functioning device?

I have brought your issue to the attention of an appropriate team within HP. They will likely request information from you in order to look up your case details or product serial number. Please look for a private message from an identified HP contact. Additionally, keep in mind not to publicly post personal information (serial numbers and case details).

The problem is ona HP laptop running windows 7. bought ~ 2009-2010. Not sure if 32 or 64 bit. Running Norton antivirus. My other windows 7 computer at home is 64 bit.

I searched forum here but did not see a solution.

Norton was updated recently on this laptop.

when you turn the computer on it immediately goes to a screen that is white with fake black cracks and holes. Believe it is a virus(no idea what name). Looks the same way every time it is turned on. I am 100% sure the screen is not physically broken.

Rebooted machine machine and it goes straight to this white screen does not show any windows or other symbols. I did notice that the light indicating capslock turned on before this screen popped up. Hitting capslock again does not fix it. It does not respond to any keystrokes when white screen is up.

Rebooted machine and immediately and repeatedly hit f8 for safe mode and it did no good. Same issue Saw a suggestion that HPs use F11 and same outcome. I tried this several times. One time F11 prevented white screen from coming up but computer turned off. rebooted and tried f2 and that did no good.

I do not have a recovery disc. I am the original owner but cannot find the discs.

What is the best ( an alternate) way(s) to fix this? Hoping for a solution that does not involve removing hard drive and one that I can do at home.

I saw suggestions for hitman.exe and recovery discs and boot discs etc but they require safe mode which I cannot access. Can I scan fro... Read more

I contacted tech support about my swollen overheating battery/ raised trackpad and their only solution was to send in the machine to the depot which can take 2 weeks or more to get it back (tech support said the parts may be back ordered).    
There has to be a better solution than saying 'unfortunately'.  I use my XPS 9550 for business and don't have a spare computer.  Considering that there is a known safety issue here too, I would think that Dell would want to have an onsite repair solution.  
Can anybody help with a solution?

Hello everyoneA Lenovo engineer came today onsite to fix my Lenovo X1 Yoga.Not only my laptop was not fixed, but I ended up with a broken screen, in addition to the other issues I had!First of all, the replacement screen was not the correct one! Then the engineer while trying to remove the old screen, broke some of the clips on the chassis. Lastly, he cracked the screen in several places, so the screen does not work at all anymore.Moreover, the other parts (as I had a 2100 error) systemboard and harddrive were not replaced yet!The laptop is only 2 months old! After the service today, I do not trust the engineers anymore. The chassis has some clips broken which means that it should be replaced  also! I paid about GBP 2000 and I do not need another broken screen, broken chassis clips or whatever else will get destroyed by your engineer!Hence, I do not want to accept any onsite repair! Not only I doubt the quality of service but they will need to change so many parts that it is very risky! I believe after the damage today, caused by their technician, Lenovo has to replace my laptop!Can someone post an appropriate email to contact Lenovo in UK?Thanks

My P50 is less than two months old and it has developed two cracks in the palmrest.  They both run almost the entire depth of the palmrest.  I use the laptop 80% of the time in a docking station, so the amount of time that the palm rest has been in contact with anything is minimal.  This is disappointing from a new laptop.

When I took my computer off my desk the other day in order to carry it to my work, I found out that the lid had cracked, just underneath the Lenovo brand name, so the front part of the lid comes off and I can see the screen between. I went into my local Lenovo ThinkCenter and asked them to repair this problem, but they said this kind of damage is not covered by the warranty. I stand by it that this is a case of material weakness and it ought to be covered. The product simply doesn't correspond to what is promised. Also, I'm afraid that the crack may have caused one of the WiFi antennas to break, besides further impacting the structural integrity of the computer. The computer had never fallen, been hit nor has any it been exposed to any kind of impact. It is also only 2 months old. Of course, this is hard to prove, but there are no other signs of damage on the exterior, which would be the case if it had indeed fallen. And this is a Thinkpad, they're supposed to be able to withstand a certain degree of impact anyway. My X200 went through some seriously rough jungle and never had any problem. The reason I had bought another Thinkpad after my X200 - despite a below-average screen resolution and an above-average price - was their superior customer support. If my issue is not dealt with properly, if it cannot be repaired for free and within a couple of working days, this will be my last ever Lenovo. These are business machines and when you pay for 3 years of internat... Read more

Well, it was bound to happen. After 20 plus years in corporate tech support, unpacking, configuring, and shipping laptops all over the world for the first time I cracked a laptop screen. Unfortunately, this laptop screen was attached to my personal HP Envy Touch Smart 15 Notebook PC.
 

 
I have always believed that ?stuff happens?. We live by the luck of the draw. When it?s time it is time. You never know. When I picked up my laptop one morning last week on the way to an offsite there was no mistaking that muffled pop of a cracked screen. Stuff happens.
 
My screen still worked but no longer with touch screen functionality and I immediately jump on the web to determine the cost of and the degree of difficulty to replace the broken screen. In this site and others, I was surprised by the number of Envy owners who?s broken screen story mirrored my own and whose uploaded photos look uncomfortably familiar.
 
In almost every uploaded image the impact area was nearly identical, roughly 1.5 cm from the top bevel and nearly perfectly in line with the center of the touchpad.
 
Many generations of the Envy are designed with a Touchpad that sits in a shallow trough. That trough, the width of the Touchpad, extends out and forms a depression along the outer edge of the laptop.  When closed, the top or lid, with the fragile display, is supported by the stiffer bottom ?half? of the laptop. But a depression on the edge of the keyboard half of the la... Read more

You might be better off doing a clean install. You won't need to enter the key as its already been associated with your computer.

Backup any files you want to keep first.

I am not certain but it may take the install files from the recovery partition (perhaps someone can confirm this), I know this worked with a recent HP job I did.

The screen on my Spectre has cracked twice. I have extended service protection, so it was replaced each time. Last time, the repair person specuated that the heat from the computer may have cracked it. He suggested that when I turn it off, I put some sort of protection between the screen and the keyboard. Does this sound crazy? Does anyone have any suggestions about how to keep the screen from cracking? I am scared to actually take it any place, so it is no longer "portable:"  This kind of defeats the reason that I bought it. I am definitely discouraged.

Hi, I paid top dollar to get this latest greatest Thinkpad X1. I have used Thinkpads for well over 15 years. I was working in a coffee shop, put it in standby, closed the lid, put it in my bag, walked 100 meters to another store, sat down and opened my machine to resume work and found a hairline crack right across the monitor from one side to the other.  The machine seems fine and most the time it is hardly noticeable. I have a full 3 year warranty but IBM wont even consider the warranty because they say it is physical damage and whenever its a monitor that is damaged they wont even begin to consider it covered under warranty. They want AUD640 to replace the monitor.  I was on holiday and so can also claim in my travel insurance but this is highly unusual for Thinkpads in my experience and wanted to knwo if anyone else has had or heard of similar problems with the screen cracking on a Thinkpad X1.

I opened my laptop tonight and the screen was cracked, I carried it downstairs and did nothing to it, so it is so WEIRD.  I just spent an hour on the phone and politely explained my situation, the person on the phone said it is $424 to fix.  I explained my dissappointment and said this had to have happened before it is clearly a defect.  They told me nope, so I paid the 424, like everyone else and then I get on the forums and it is rampant.   Clearly HP has a problem.   I am pretty nervous, becuase I just bought a boat load for my employees and this thing just cracked this easily, I am seriously considering not ordering any more.  I fought everyone, they all wanted the surface, but we might have to reconsider.  Sorry HP, I think you are great, but you need to figure this out, and not charge everyone so much to fix it.  Too bad the laptop is awesome, and the screen was amazing.

My product is less than 3 months old, has not been mis-handled or abused in anyway, on the contrary as it was a very expensive purchase for me I have been exceptionally careful with it's use been mainly reserved to my desk. I am shocked and dissappointed to find it has developed a cracked screen overnight, virtally witout any apparent reason!! Upon reading this forum it appears to be a defect in this particular model. I am at a loss on the best way forward. Please help, this is definitely unexpectable for such a high end product.

I treated my G50 Touch Laptop very well.  Admittedly, like any laptap, I put it in my backpack and took it with me on trips for several years.  This summer I opened it up and found the screen cracked diagonally down the middle.  It operates fine.  Should I fix it, live with it?  Is there something Lenovo can do?

Hi petezajonc,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
A cracked screen may not be covered by the basic warranty.
In such events, should have an accidental warranty plan for Lenovo service center to accept it for repairs.
From here, you can check your current warranty status and type.
 
You can have it repaired with local service center like best buy else you may download the hardware manual for the guides if you have the tools to replace the LCD screen. The part number of the LCD panel/module can be checked here to search pricing and compare it from lenovo encompass or other resellers online.
 
With the pricing and details, you can decide if LCD replacement is an immediate concern for you specially if the touch screen is still fine.
 
Hope this helps answer your query.
 
Regards

My screen developed a running crack and is now operating sporadically. The bottom right corner of my screen was not flush with the lid and yesterday I gave it a hard push and the screen cracked. It cracked where my thumb pushed and created a running hairline crack to the top of my screen. The budge is still not flush as the push only cracked my screen and now my laptop is working sporadically. My laptop is still under warranty and I'm really disappointed that this defect has created new issues. Who do I contact to get this repaired under warranty?

Bought laptop for my doughter in november , one day she open screen as usual and noticed crack on screen . HP Customer Support decided : mechanical problem , customer fault . Have to pay HP ( repair in workshop other than HP void quarantee ) 250 for repair because HP don't know any issues with bad quality of screen ( they not read posts in this HP support forum I assume ) . But when I requested return of faulty screen to be diagnosed by independent workshop ...... first shock , then usual game " we give you some discunt from price " , then ... we won't take laptop to repair . On the end legal department will be involved and will see .
