Much of the time it'll be the physical connection between the
screen and the laptop mobo. This should be pretty straightforward
for any decent repair tech to fix (though we had some laptops that
never came good despite repeated warranty jobs).

Oddly, the sci.electronics.repair FAQ says very little about LCDs.
But once upon a time, I saw a pretty good diagnostic guide (that
I have not been able to re-find).

I also saw (Saturday's Canberra Times?) someone in town advertising
the repair of mobile phones, they'd possibly have the sort of tools
needed to fix dodgey connections.

I have a couple of laptops that are out of warranty and starting to
fail (broken LCD cable?), but still potentially serviceable.  Does
anyone know of companies in Canberra that do this kind of repairs?

Dell are apparently not interested (and have aggressively unhelpful
service staff.)  IBM were much better but have an up-front quote fee
of $135 (credited against repairs) so I thought I'd look at other
