Laptop backlight went a couple of weeks ago, could barely see anything on the screen. Left the laptop with the local repairers who spend a week not looking at and making up that I needed to spend £130 to send it somewhere else to be fixed (why couldn't they order the parts?).
Took the laptop back, showed it to my IT friend, who said it could be fixed for £16 (and a couple of pints). I bought him a screwdriver (59p!)to open it up and the part in question just had a loose plug.
So, I could've had my laptop fixed in ten minutes instead of two weeks. Annoying.
