Ok, so this is a bad situation.

Good morning again friends,

We took a repair in at our Olathe, Kansas location that was in “serious” need this morning. Mission Repair is here to help.

I feel terrible for this customer that got their top case caught in a piece of machinery that “crunched” the entire screen assembly. It’s kind of a nightmare to look at, but once we’re done, the customer will never know the difference.

This brings us to our full line of Mac laptop repairs. I’ve personally been servicing Mac laptops for just about 20 years. I’ll admit that I am a little rusty because I have technicians on hand to handle the day to day work flow 😉 But I can still hold my own in the tech room!

As the technology gets better, the units get faster, the styling sleeker – but the importance of each unit remains- these are valuable to our customers, and we’re happy to provide a solution to get them back to “normal” again.

We’ve got the screen assembly on order and it’ll arrive soon; I’ll follow up with the completed repair once it his our QA department.

Thanks, talk to you again soon. Ryan

Cracked screen fixed on a MacBook.

Good afternoon,

It still surprises me when customers call and ask “Do you repair computers?”

It’s true…and has been for true coming up on seven years now. In fact, I’ve personally been working on Mac and PC computers since 1994; I’ve seen a lot of generations and repaired countless different computers, brands of computers, laptops and desktop units.

Unlike an iPhone repair, there’s not a single “majority” type of repair on a computer. iPhones for example, are mostly in for service to have a screen repaired.

Computers on the other hand are a different animal. No doubt there’s a lot of screen repairs that come through our shop and we can repair glass and LCD’s on most laptops.

Shattered glass, yes. But also hard drives, solid state drives, memory modules, logic boards, case parts, keyboards, hinges, and just about anything else. Laptop repairs have never been easier – and we’ve got the best shipping prices to and from anywhere in the USA – all you need to do is get your order started and we’ll take care of the rest.

Not convinced? Give us a call 7 days a week at 866-638-8402.

Have a great day, Ryan

This repair is actually very tricky. It is not just a matter of uninstalling a whole screen assembly and installing a brand new one.

It takes specialized tools and knowledge to complete the repair successfully.

Thankfully here at Mission Repair, we have both! We have done the R&D to make sure the repairs on theses little guys go off without a hitch every time. If you have a 13″ or 11″, we will professionally repair your Macbook Air and have it back in your hands in no time flat!

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:

IMG_0945

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.

Ryan

EVEN FASTER SERVICE ON 11″ AND 13″ MACBOOK AIR SCREEN REPAIRS!

Hello M:R Nation –

Things at Mission:Repair are always moving at a fast pace. From our Customer Service to our Shipping and Receiving departments, things just fly. This is by design. The quicker we can receive, test, repair and quality check your device, the better for everyone. So you can imagine my elation when we shave some time off of a particular process. We have done so with our Macbook Air Screen services! What used to take a full week to repair, has now been shaved to only 24 Hours!

Macbook_Air

Why would it have ever taken more than 24 hours? (let alone 1 Week) to repair you ask? Well, the design on the newer Macbook Air is very thin and complex. So thin in fact, there is not even a removable LCD screen in it! It is built in layer by layer in the top lid. This brings a whole new complexity to the repair and most folks could not do it in their basement. To repair these computers, requires a clean room and other expensive equipment that you can’t easily come by. It is a pain staking repair and I would not wish it on my worst enemy 🙂

So, with a little ingenuity and a lot of practice, we have quickened our turn around time on this service. My technicians are working hard to to get this time down even further and you should expect to see another post on this very soon! So please allow me to give you a short cut to these new and improved services:

Glossy 13″ MacBook Air LCD Screen Repair (24 Hour Turnaround)

Until we meet again!
