Thin vertical blue ink bleed line from bottom of Malaprop screen - Fades over time


Hello,

Yes, it's a screen problem. It could be a loose connection of the LCD and the motherboard or the lid lights gone bad. You can fix that by either resetting the connection of the screen and the motherboard or replacing the whole screen. You would need a technician to do that.

Fix by yourself? I don't think so because the problem cause by LCD.
To fix it, replace the LCD. Either at Service center or any computer shop that provide this service. And it might costly

Verticle lines on my screen


OK,this is a fatal problem, you need to replace your LCD screen. (Also maybe too the Inverter) I have just finished an exact same job for a client, earlier in the week. It cost $180.00 plus tax. I had to get a second hand screen, but it was in perfect condition. It is/was a straight forward, repair. But I advise you to ask for a "Quote" for the repair. You could even do it yourself, you need a small screwdriver, and the Service Manual. a MUST HAVE, (Otherwise you cannot even get into it) You could obtain, the LCD from, say eBay, or the like, or even direct from Toshiba, you would most likely be better to take it apart first, to obtain the EXACT type & number on back of LCD. Once all together it;s quite simple to unplug the cables and remount again on new one.

Blue vertical line


The lines appearing on your LCD means it has a defect on the screen.

There are 3 types of pixel defect
1) dead pixel - pixel is always off
2) stuck pixel - pixel is always on
3) hot pixel - pixel is on but in red, green, blue or yellow, can also be a light black color

You can try to fix stuck or hot pixels but dead is dead.
1st method, flashing different colors rapidly:
JSScreenfix.com has a great tool. This is their free java applet or you can download it below.

2nd method, applying pressure to pixel:
Damp paper towel, Small stylus or dull pencil.

3rd method, tapping the pixel:
Pen with cover on or another small, blunt object.


If your laptop is still under warranty, get it replaced. If not you are looking at the most expensive part in a laptop to get replaced. (LCD screens on laptop is roughly equivalent to 40-60% of the total laptop cost

Please rate this if it this helps.

Coloured vertical lines down lcd screen


To isolate the issue, i strongly recommend to connect the notebook to the external monitor by VGA port which had BLUE colored on the notebook. So that if it is normal then you need to confirm the issue is with the LCD display.

Line in my lc screen


A line from top to bottom or side to side is a dead or failed pixel sensor. There are hundreds of pixel sensors at the edges of the screen, when one fails it causes a line, the line can be red, blue, white, or black. Unfortunately, there is no way of repairing the line, other that replacing the screen.
