Hello there Mac lovers…
Have you ever wondered why the screen on your 13″ or 15″ MacBook Pro with Retina Display looks so amazing? Yes, the “retina” piece has a lot to do with it – Retina displays have a pixel density that’s so high, your eyes can’t discern individual pixels at a normal viewing distance. This gives content incredible detail and dramatically improves your viewing experience.
The other slightly lesser known fact is that they are assembled in a clean room which mates the LCD with the glass and “seals” the entire assembly from the elements and the environment – The problem with this is that fixing a cracked screen or glass cannot be done by the “casual” technician. They are simply too hard to separate without the proper tools and techniques.
We recently had a customer try to make the first attempts at removing a glass panel on his own:
Can you see that discoloration in the middle of the screen in that picture? That where he tried to heat it up. He said that the glass bubbled out like a balloon, and when it cooled it returned to “normal” shape.
Yes, heat is part of the process, but you cannot put these screen assemblies into an oven, in front of a space heater or use a hairdryer to correctly remove the glass. Physics simply doesn’t permit it. Kudos to this customer for trying to resolve this repair on his own; it how I got started in the business (repairing stuff on my own), but this was like starting to hike by trying to conquer Mt. Everest. Not likely!!
