I've looked through my small print and my insurance doesnt cover this type of loss.

What extra cover add on do you have for this scenario. I've always accepted the risk as my own to cover.

Not, thankfully so far, I've had a large loss, mostly just my own time to put it right.

Interesting to see what might be out there I'm missing since reading this thread.

I would class this as professional insurance claim, ie it's my fault I caused the error. Depending on the loss it could be a claim. I'm pretty sure there is something which could be claimed for.

I don't have the time today to go through my paperwork to check though
Hope this helps
Be Safe

I don't think that another screen will fix the problem. The laptop won't start, so it proubebly short circuited due to the ribbon cable touching the plastic.
Those thin plastic shields on the back of Laptop Screens do not conduct electricity, and therefore can not have caused a short. Plastic can however, melt if a short is nearby. I believe that you either received a defective (shorted) screen, a defective extension cable (shorted), or did not have the cables seated properly. Another possible but unlikely cause is that the cable was pinched by metal (screw, brackets, etc).

If you have not done so already, unplug the LCD cable from the laptops motherboard and see if the laptop boots up to an external monitor. A shorted screen can cause the laptop to not turn on.
