Display industry in Europe

Technical Q&A with Elsin Electronic Solutions

www.lcdrepair.eu

DA: Is there an advantage in being a European company in the display industry?

Elsin Electronic Solutions: The location of Elsin right in the middle of Europe is an important advantage for the provision of repair and logistic services for the whole region. Though the repair price alone may be higher than repair prices in Asia (because of the higher employment costs), the overall costs considering transport are significantly lower.

Besides repairs of LCD panels and related services (RMA, on-site support, logistics, buffer service, etc.) Elsin also handles types of soft business. We sell new and refurbished LCD panels, especially hard to get panels. We also sell machines, equipment, and material needed for LCD repairs such as CCFL lamps, polarizers, IC Tabs, and testing jigs. Besides that, we are fully equipped for data recovery, and repairs of Motorola data terminals. We also cooperate on development of display of various applications, or assemble special visual display units for military use.

Repairing LED vs. CCFL displays

Technical Q&A with Elsin Electronic Solutions

www.lcdrepair.eu

DA: Are there differences in repairing LED displays vs. older CCFL displays?

Elsin Electronic Solutions: The only difference between LED and CCFL panels is the backlight, everything else is the same. Both LED and CCFL panels are equally difficult to repair. The disadvantage of CCFL panels with more lamps is when only one lamp goes off it is necessary to replace all of the lamps so the backlight is even. A CCFL panel can have only one lamp or tens of them. Sometimes, thanks to the prices of CCFL lamps, the backlight repair may be too expensive. The LED backlight has the advantage that it doesn't lose its luminosity, and thus it is possible to use a backlight unit from another panel (for example, an unrepairable panel).

LCD repair services and the larger display industry

Technical Q&A with Elsin Electronic Solutions

www.lcdrepair.eu

DA: What are the larger factors in the display industry that affect LCD repair services?

Elsin Electronic Solutions: Thanks to the progressive changes in the technology of LCD production where there is a huge pressure on the price, it's harder day by day to repair panels, and some types of defects are marked as a unrepairable. Panel repairs are not considered during production, everything is integrated into one piece The production cost of LCD panels is still lower and lower, but the equipment needed for LCD repairs is still very expensive. It's very hard to keep the repair price in touch with the market. We have been repairing LCD panels since 2005 and we expected it would be worth repairing only panels of bigger and bigger sizes. But we found out with the big TV panels that the transport costs are so high that most of our repairs now are notebook panels.

Why would someone need LCD repair services?

Technical Q&A with Elsin Electronic Solutions

www.lcdrepair.eu

DA: Why would someone repair an LCD rather than buy a new panel?

Elsin Electronic Solutions: In the European Union the warranty provided to the end customer is very often two or more years. Therefore, it's not worth repairing a monitor after the warranty has ended as the product is often obsolete. However, the end customer may make use of our services when it comes to a new product with other than warranty covered defect (scratched surface for example).

On the other hand repairing the LCD panels is very useful for the manufacturers, because they usually get a shorter warranty period for the LCD panel than they provide to the end customer. Thus, they carry the expenses resulting from this discrepancy. The price of the repair of an LCD panel in Elsin is about 20-50% of the price of a new panel. Therefore, the total saving at mass production level is significant.

Another situation where the repair pays off is when certain types of older panels are not available on the market anymore, and not even an equivalent replacement is available. Such a repair of expensive industrial or other special panels is certainly worth it.

Elsin also provides the warranty RMA service and an on-site support for LCD manufacturers. The panels sold on the EU market thus does not have to go all the way back to Asia to the manufacturer, but can be repaired straight in EU, at Elsin. Furthermore, we give the manufacturers feedback and help them analyze the production defects of the panels.
