Question about Dell Inspiron 2200 Notebook

2 Answers

Lines on screen

It started about a year ago with one thin green line.  NOW I have, besides that original thin green line:  a thin blue line to the left of original, a thin blue and thin green to the right of original, another green to the right of those two, then a thin red line to the right of that! I've been told it's not a pixel problem, that it may need something called degausing? HELP, it's driving me NUTS! Thanks In Advance

    Thanks, my Inspiron is a little over 3 years old, therefore NO WARRANTY.
    Thanks, tho.

  • yarnwright Sep 13, 2008

    Now that sounds like a plan.  I've troubleshooted and it tells me that this device is working properly, but I COULD always 'roll-back' if your suggestion doesn't work, yes?
    Thanks again.

    None of the suggestions offered so far have proven fruitful. If I had a financial sponsor, I'd get a new monitor or something, but since bux are a huge issue, I guess I'll just live with it.

    Thanks for the suggestions tho.

My dell inspiron 2200 has the exact same problem. When it occurs I grab the top of the screen and i act as though I am going to close the screen quickly. I don't close it all the way, when I open it again the lines are gone. Good luck

Laptops do not have degausing thats only on rct screens what you have is a pixil problem and the lcd or plasma is in need of repair or replacement, if your laptop is under warrinety i sugjest you bring it in soon.

Nothing you can do about that...get used to it or change the TV.
It's a defect in the panel that can't be reliably fixed.

There is just three lines that show red, green and blue.


It has been my experience with Sonys that those three colored lines indicate that the set is having trouble with the data communication lines. The hitch is that a model as complex as that one has as many as five seperate clock/data lines and if any one of them goes down the set will exhibit your symptom. It will take a professional to track down which line is causing the problem. I've seen audio output IC's as well as tuners cause the problem.

Lines on the screen


Are they thin, white lines running east to west? If so, they are called retrace lines and indicate that the screen settings for the picture tubes is set too high or there may be a mal-function of the CRT driver circuitry. Try adjusting the screen controls which are located behind the front grill of the TV behind an access panel. Once you remove the grill and access panel, you'll see a small control assembly the has two sets of controls. Three for adjusting the red, green, and blue focus, the other, the red, blue, and green screen controls. To adjust correctly, put the TV on an unused input(dark, blank picture) and adjust until there are no visable retrace lines or color in the image.
