Question about IBM ThinkPad R51 Notebook

A white patch is appearing on the LCD

Hi,
A white patch about 6 cm wide is appearing on the right side of my screen. The patch is a little translucent and see through. I read somewhere that another person faced an identical problem and had the patch of the same size and colour and later the patch colour changed to solid blue. Could the problem be with the LCD, the inverter or the graphics card?

Regards,
Ramy

    The problem occurred after I hooked on my laptop to a projector. I used the projector for about 4-5 hours and then kept the laptop in my bag in the standby mode. Could this have caused any problem?

    Is the patch a small roundish area or actually a white streak from top to bottom of the screen? Please describe it as well as possible and maybe we can help a little better.

I have a Lg 42" lcd tv (42LG3000) TV is wall


White screen with good audio. before buying pcbs & such. try my repair method.. you need to get the lcd unit off the facia & then remove the front lcd metal frame. at the top of the screen you have 2 thin pcbs - chances are that the ribbon cable got at least one track unbonded. first off put some double sided tape under the pcbs to stick then to the frame - that'll take the bend out of those pcbs !! next put cellotape over the ribbon cables. i then cut 6 pieces of sponge 15mm thick & wide as the ribbon cable & glue to the tape on the ribbon at what would be the top edge of the screen (covering the point where ribbon meets pcb).. put the metal frame on top edge first to keep the sponge straight !! put it back together & fire it up. if it still aint working you may need a tcon pcb (little square one at the top). this fixed my 42lg3000 but can work on others with same fault !!

Black line down the left side of the screen


This is a bad panel. The panel is very expensive to replace. It would be cheaper to buy a new tv. Sorry about the bad news.
