Question about Dell Inspiron 1525 Notebook
I purchased a laptop off eBay to replace mine that started with a crack in the outer lid/cover and ended up with extensive hinge problems. After getting the one from eBay, the same model, a Dell Inspiron 1525, the monitor no longer would show any display. I decided to use the YouTube Videos online to replace the LCD myself and it all seemed to go OK. I already had an LCD from my original computer that had hinge problems. It was the exact same model Dell 1525 as the one I just bought to replace it with from eBay. The only problem is the LCD screen I put in, now has a streak in it from the bottom right corner, to the top left corner. I don't know what I did wrong? The LCD did not have that in it before. I did everything carefully and it all seemed to go OK. Any ideas what could cause this? When you look straight ahead at the screen, you almost do not see this streak, it looks more like a slight shadow, and it is only when you look at it slightly off from one side or the other can you see it is a streak about ¾ of an inch thick. It still is annoying to me. It almost looks like there is something behind the screen, it looks kind of translucent. But I know there is not anything across the back of the screen like that. Anyone know what could cause this streak, or what I could have done wrong to cause this in replacing the LCD? Thank You,
Strip down and remake the connection to the ribbon cable. It has to be inserted squarely and evenly and then locked down. Make sure any spacers or locators are in properly between the two screens. Any pressure will cause display anomalies.

on a dell 1525 the replacement is pretty easy, definitely costs much less than replacements of the manufacturer if you can do it yourself, there are laptop repair guides websites that guide you through the repair step by step, but you should have done something like this before, there are also third party laptop repair places that can do it for you.

unlikely that its still under warranty, but you can check the warranty status at support.dell.com
you may also find parts lists on their website. The plastic bezels on laptops aren't very hard to replace.

I've had the same problem with a Dell Lattitude D531. I've been told that it's the screen itself (which may have led to the original inverter going bad) but that one should also check to make sure none of the screws are making contact with any wires back there.
