What would it cost to replace a touch screen Satellite

Customer Question

What would it cost to replace a touch screen for Toshiba Satellite S55T-A5237? I'm about to buy this laptop but there are particles of something or dirt behind the screen that are quite noticeable. Thank you.

Hello, I've done some price checking for you,

brand new you can find here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Toshiba-S55T-A-S55DT-P55T-A-Touchscreen-glass-w-digitizer-no-bezel-H000066910-/271943706541?hash=item3f511ba7ad

for $189.00

Used you can find it for about $120.00 here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Toshiba-Satellite-S55t-B-15-6-Back-Cover-Touch-Glass-Digitizer-Hinge-P000606700-/281781481350?hash=item419b7c2f86#viTabs_0

As far as labor goes Most places would probably charge between an hour to two hours of labor to do it, likely it is adhesed to the bezel as most touch screen assembly's go. and would require a heat gun (some people use hair driers but that takes awhile) and some technical knowhow about replacing touch screens... This would NOT be as easy as an LCD replacement in conventional laptops.
