What kind of tablet did you need repaired?

The Truth about MacBook Air Screens.

Good evening friends,

It’s late Friday night, I’m just finishing up my day at Mission Repair (working from home) and disaster struck my Apple notebook.

I personally use a 13″ MacBook Air at home. It’s been a great machine that hasn’t given me a bit of trouble until I made a mistake. It’s a mistake that even this late at night I feel that I need to share with my blog followers – a mistake that will prove to be costly. I grabbed my laptop by the screen to pick it up like I’ve done a many times before.

I picked it up by the top of the computer where the screen is, not by the bottom of the computer where the keyboard is. MISTAKE.

I’m going to stop writing and take a picture…you’ll see the beginning of this blog in the background, and everything will look normal as so:

You can click on these pictures to get a close up look at what is going on.

But after I picked it up by the screen in the very spot that you see my thumb and hand, I squeezed a little too hard. Now when I apply just a slight bit of pressure to the bezel where my thumb is located, my image goes haywire:

What you see here is a classic “broken LCD” on a MacBook Air. There are many degrees of “broken”. In fact, when someone has a broken LCD screen, it might physically appear cracked. It might looks like and “ink” stain running across the screen. Or it might in fact be like my situation where I can get the screen just into the correct position, not touch it and have it appear fine – but the slightest movement can show it’s ugly side.

I know that lifting a laptop by it’s screen is not the correct way to handle a laptop. The MacBook Air is so light and easy to carry at some point I made the decision that it would be OK to do so.

I did a quick search on Apple Discussion Forums and found a nice article on Considerations for a long life of your MacBook Air which give good advice on many maintenance and daily life considerations when owning one of these devices, but does not discuss “lifting” the unit by the lid. I guess that’s just common sense that I didn’t use.

In this day and age with tablets in and amongst my life it might just be a subconscious thing- I grab my tablet by the screen, right? Isn’t a tablet merely a laptop computer “lid” without a hardware keyboard? Well, this comparison of the two might be OK if only considering the physical aspects of the devices but they are truly two different devices…however somewhere in my mind it just felt OK to grab the screen of my computer.

My advice is…don’t do it. We constantly repair MacBook Air screens at Mission Repair. I’m lucky that I can just take my computer into my shop, buy a screen for myself and install it. This is not so easy to do for consumers that don’t own an electronics repair shop and I understand this – it’s why Mission Repair is in business.

Do your best to avoid the situation that I’m in unless you don’t mind paying for your computer to get repaired- but if you do, you know who to call. Shameless reminder: 866-638-8402. I’ll be taking mine into the tech lab tomorrow.

Have a great weekend everyone, take care.

The Kindle Fire Is Gaining Momentum!

Hello M:R  Nation –

I recently read an article that talked about web usage per tablet. Something interesting came out of that article. The Kindle Fire is out there in droves! With the iPad maintaining the highest percentage of users at 78.86%, this is actually a decrease for them. 7.14% to be exact.

The Kindle Fire is showing up as a massive 7.51% which is actually a very large number considering the ever so popular Samsung Tablets are only at 4.39%. What has caused this? Some say it has to do with increasing sales of the Kindle Fire, others say that it might just be that a good amount of iPad users are also iPhone 5 users which just happened to soar to a 8.27% usage share. Keep in mind, we are talking millions and millions of units here, so while these %’s seem small, it actually reflects a huge number.

Either way, this has a large impact here at Mission Repair. The more these devices are use, the more support our customers need. We love to be the company offering this support on the very wide range of technology that is out on the market today.  so if you find yourself in need of this kind of support, give us a shout at 866-638-8402 or email at support@missionrepair.com

Cheers, Troy
