How to choose the notebook matrix
Very often we hear about a broken display or even face it in a practice. Often this failure happens with mobile phones but today let’s talk about notebook matrices. When we see a broken display the first thing that comes into your mind is the question: how much is a replacement, how and where to find the right part?
The first step is to determine what kind of matrix is in your devise. It is necessary to use such a wonderful program like EVEREST in order to find a display model. The program is very easy to use and you can see the entire configuration of the notebook by means of this program. Unfortunately, this option does not fit all, but rather is suitable for those who show at least part of the image. Another way which will help to determine the characteristics of the matrix – is matrix removal or notebook disassembling. You ought to remove only the front decorative frame. The surface of the matrix is easily damaged so be careful not to scratch it. If the matrix has got some liquid or it is soiled it is necessary to eliminate the pollution immediately.
Remember that prolonged contact with water may cause surface discoloration or spotting. It is worth being careful with the panel as it is made of glass and can be broken or cracked. It is worth remembering an elementary security measures do not forget to turn off the set up matrix mains and disconnect notebook buttery. These steps will help you to avoid integrated circuits breakdown. Matrix integrated circuits can fail due to failure by static electricity so all manipulations concerning installation and removal of the matrix should be carried out in anti-static gloves. Make sure that you properly set the loop into matrix interface connector it should not be rotated or sloped.
Removing the matrix we will see several labels on the back of it. Now you need to find the right label depending of the diagonal of your notebook. If the diagonal screen 10.1 inches the label must be numeric designation 101 if the screen size 15.6 inches it should be on the label referring to numbers and so on. But before numerals referring to the displays diagonal there are always letters – it is short designation of matrix company manufacturer , for example LP101WSA (TL)(B1) means that given display is manufactured by LG Philips company. There are not so much matrices manufacturers on the global market. It should be noted that the notebook matrices are not forged this is a multi-billion dollar production that’s why to makeshift tools in order to make matrices in a cellar is impossible.
