Can I ask someone else to update my surface pro 4
Im not so comfortable with doing the repair I have a screen flickering which a change would fix. Could someone else do it for me?
I would recommend going to a few local shops that could be in your area — try independent locations first. Avoid big-box chains like Best Buy. Go to a few of them and ask for some quotes. This should yield you a pretty good idea of how much to pay for this type of service.
Although I would usually recommend doing it yourself, if you get it done by a third party, there will probably be a warranty attached to their repair as well, so you could bring it back and ask for it to be redone if it fails within that specified range.
Sorry to hear about the flickering issues!
Sam makes some great points! Shopping around for a reputable, dependable repair shop is important if you’d rather not perform the repair yourself.

I had learned from another customer a while back that Surface Pro 4 replacement screens can be made with either Samsung or LG components. The flickering problem, according to him, is only present on screens with Samsung components. The LG screens don’t appear to have this problem, but I could be misinformed.
As far as finding a repair shop near you goes: You might be able to find one of our iFixit Pro-affiliated repair shops using: ifixit.com/local
You can check on Yelp.com to see if anything looks promising. I’d definitely recommend asking if they are experienced in replacing displays on Microsoft Surface Pros.
We wish you the best of luck!
