I started That Geezer in 2008 and I have been repairing and modifying PC's, laptops, tablets and programming since the late 1980's. I run the repair side of the business on a part time basis now as I have a full time job. If you're purchasing an item this will not be affected as the warehouse I ship from is all automated.
I specialise in screen repair and replacement this is the core of the business, I am still able to collect repair and return devices for repair but the turnaround time may be extended. The we come to you and you come to us service will only be available in the evenings and on one day in the week due to my new employment.
I ONLY use BRAND NEW exact replacement screens and will not use copy, cheap or fake screens, I only have the highest quality screens in stock and have screens for more than 7000 different devices.
No quibble guarantee
I believe that you should have the very best guarantee that your product or repair will be perfect. We are the ONLY company to offer a five year guarantee on screen repairs and one year on all other products and services. I am happy and able to offer the five year guarantee on screen repairs because I install the screens to the highest standards and the parts I use are 100% genuine and of the highest quality.
I ship to nearly every country in the world, here is a small selection of some of the locations I have shipped to:

What does the guarantee cover?
The guarantee covers the screen failing by natural means, i.e., not you breaking it. If the image is very faint and the screen does not light up on the newer LED screens it's more than likely to be the screen at fault. On older CCFL screens this is normally the inverter that is faulty and this is not covered because it's a separate part and not what we replaced when we repaired your screen. We do have a fixed price of £59.99 collect, repair and return, for no backlight on CCFL screens.
If the screen has lines running from top to bottom (banding) and not through misuse this is covered. All warranty repairs take place at head office and it is your responsibility to get the device to us, we can arrange the carrier for you both ways for a total price of £24.99. The guarantee we offer only covers one screen failure above this we will offer a parts and carrier only service, this means you will need to pay for the parts and the carrier to and from us only labour is free.
Motherboard Graphics Socket RAM
The guarantee covers the same part going faulty, or the repair we complete fails, if the laptop fails in any other way it will not be under the guarantee. You will need to return the device to us at your cost (this can be arranged by us for £24.99) and we will complete the repair including parts for free and return it to you. The guarantee only covers one repair, the reason for this is if it's a common fault and the manufacturer has produced a faulty machine it's not our responsibility to cover their work.
The guarantee covers the screen going faulty not the screen cracking. Typical faults are a band of white horizontally or vertically or the screen being faint. The screen going faint can also be the inverter on older laptops this is not covered buy the guarantee, we can repair this for £49.99 including collect > repair > return. If the parcel arrives damaged you must refuse it, if you do not then you must report it to us in 7 working days for a replacement, we will offer a replacement first if you do not take the replacement you will need to pay for the return otherwise we will send you a returns label.
The guarantee covers the charger going faulty and not charging your device, the guarantee does not cover the casing cracking or the cables to and from the charger breaking.
