Question about Acer Aspire 8920-6671 Notebook

White area in LCD screen with colored vertical lines

Hi, I have an Acer 8920G laptop, that I have only had for about three months, I bought it at the end of August. About a month ago I switched the laptop, after a completely normal session the day before, and the about an 8th of the right hand side of the screen was all white with a few vertical colored lines in it and nothing else. This never changes within a session of having the laptop on, but it does vary between sessions. For a while I was switching it on and it had a thing white line about four fifths of the way along the screen and then a normal image on the other side of the line, where previously it had been all white.
I originally though that the display potential of that side of the screen was lost, but after seeing that it does have the potential to display an image it has confused me.
At the moment the white area has increased to take up about a quarter of the screen, and has been fluxuating between these 3 states.
Any help would be greatly appreciated as I love my Acer laptop apart from this really annoying problem.

    I'm thinking it may be a problem with the cable that connects the cable to the LCD screen. Does anybody have an idea how to be able to see if this cable is pushed in properly? It looks like it is located on the left side when I unscrew and uncover the cylinder hinge area where the laptop meets the LCD screen, but I can't see any connection from here.

Lcd screen has lines in the middle area (3" wide


Laptop screen display problems occur for many different reasons. Some issues need professional attention, but others can be repaired by the owner. A screen that displays vertical lines often means that there is a problem with the video cable connection to the LCD screen, or the cable itself. In order to repair this problem, the display screen must be disassembled. If you feel confident that this task is within your realm of expertise, follow the steps below to remove your laptop's LCD panel and fix the vertical line problem on your laptop screen.

1. Remove the rubber seals covering the screws on your screen's outer frame using a flat-head screwdriver. Remove the screws, then carefully pry the frame from the screen using your fingers. Release the plastic latches holding the framing in place, then remove.

2. Remove the screws holding the screen to the support brackets. You will see the video cable, which is attached to the back of the LCD screen. Try unplugging and reconnecting this cable, making sure that it is seated properly. If the problem was the connection, this may solve the vertical line issue.

3. Turn on the laptop. Move the video cable around a bit, without moving or touching the screen. Check the screen to see if the display image changes at all. If it does, the problem may be with the cable itself.
4. Move the laptop screen around to see if this affects the display. If so, the problem is most likely with the LCD screen itself, not the video cable. Replacing the screen will be necessary.

I hope you find it very helpful. Best regards.

Hi,

If this line is present on every window you open, it may be a problem with the LCD itself. As it is new and I presume still under warranty, I recommend you to take it back to the after sales to get it checked.

By experience, I can tell that in most cases, this type of line on the monitor comes from a defective LCD monitor, and if it is the case, it should deteriorate with time.

A vertical white line appears on my screen


What is happening to your laptop is the power line connecting a row of pixels is failing so only partial colors are showing up causing the vertical white line. Usually screen replacement is the only answer to fix it.

It sounds like the control board or cable for the LCD may be damaged. If you're still under warranty, you'll need to send it back to Acer to be repaired.
