Re: Cracked Screen

This repair is going to be expensive if you are going through the Lenovo service, you should find a computer repairer whom can do it for you, or scrap the laptop for parts, and buy a new one.

In a sense lead_org is correct.  It will be quite expensive to repair/replace that cracked LCD screen.

Especially if you just purchased the system with only the standard warranty for the system.  In reality, even though we did not intentionally damage the LCD, the technicians that will be repairing the system back in the repair depot will percieve it as customer induced damage and you will be charged for the repair.

 

Ofcourse, if you have Accidental Damage Protection warranty then the repair will be covered.

Re: Cracked Screen

It is a S10 netbook, i doubt anyone is going to fork the dollar for that sort of warranty coverage. (Also i don't accidental damage protection warranty is available in the S10 machines).

There is a seller on eBay that sells new S10e panels for $94.

I don't mean to be rude, but it was just my two-cents...

 

Oh, and there is Accidental Damage Protection warranty for S10 netbooks being offered in some Countries.
