Question about Averatec 3200 Notebook

Averatec 2300 screen image 'whites out' or colored pin stripes

Recently our Averatec running on Vista started losing the screen image through a 'whiting out' of the image and/or a mass of vertical coloured lines obliterating the normal image... this seemed to be time related viz after progressively shorter periods of being on, the problem would arise... and there may also be some connection to the angle of screen tilt, viz certain 'sweet spots' that would return the lost image. The techie at a local PC shop says it isn't a screen problem because there is a good image to start with... he believes the problem is with the VGA card. Problem is that Averatec isn't supported here in Africa. Has anyone else experienced this problem and any suggestions how I could fix it?

Just for the sake of information, the white of the screen means the backlight is working. LCD displays work by allowing light to pass through at different wavelengths, creating 'color.'
I doubt that your system has a separate, replaceable video card. This sounds a lot like a chip has developed and thermal problem. If you can buy 'freeze spray' there, try shooting it into various openings of the case when the problem is present. If this affects the display, you are probably going to need a replacement motherboard since the majority of the chips (ICs) are placed by robots and nearly impossible to replace by hand due to the pin spacing that is typical for modern ICs.
If you are courageous, you can get the case apart with 'jeweler's' screwdrivers. You will find that the screen assembly is connected to the main board via a flat ribbon cable that is likely stuffed into a questionable connector. You might try carefully pulling that cable from the connector and even more carefully, plug it back in again. Unfortunately, few companies are using any gold on connector contacts anymore and the materials used may oxidize and cause the kind of problem you are having.

If the screen is damaged, then no there nothing you can do without replacing the screen BUT then is it really damaged? I would try and see if a normal image is displayed on an external display via the laptops VGA port and cable. If good than it is most likely the screen BUT I would look into (By pulling the screen covers off, etc to see if all cables from the System board to the screen is connected properly, if they are and also same image is on the external screen then the graphics chip is the culprit...depends on how hard and at what angle etc did the Laptop hit the foot-board.

FAINT VERTICAL PIN STRIPES MOVINGS TO FULL AREA OF SCREEN


Hi,Yes your problem sounds like the DMD board.This is how it works: http://electronics.howstuffworks.com/dlp1.htm Basically the light of the lamp goes through a tunnel that carries a color wheel(rotating disc with a gamma of colors that creates the colors on your tv)then the light of the lamp goes through the DMD board which is a chip composed of around 2 million pixels that creates the images and colors.When it starts to fail it will create black bars,pixelation,color distortion or white dots on screens. Here's a video that will help you find where the DMd chip is located : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0jr_9A5Xd2Q Have a blessed one!

Thin vertical line appears on projector


I have found that vertical lines that suddenly appear from projectors are due to poorly connected cables. Sut off your projector and wait for the fan to go off. Then unplug the connectors from the computer to the projector and secure them again, making sure to go all the way. Hope this helps.
