Question about Toshiba Satellite P35-S609: Pentium 4-3.2 GHZ, 512MB RAM, 80GB Hard Drive, DVD-RW/CD-RW, 56K Modem, Network ... (SATELLITEP35S609PENTIUM) PC Notebook
This just started a couple of days ago. When I power up the system the screen is normal, then after about 30 seconds a light blue vertical line appears. It's about 2" inset from the left side of the screen, less than 1/32" in width, and runs top to bottom of the screen. Does anybody know what this is, or how to correct it? I've have had this laptop for a couple of years, and it operates just fine, except for the annoying blue line. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
It is sounding like when the laptop is turned on and heats up a bit, the line appears? Sounds like one of the panels is going bad or atleast has developed a problem. below are some tricks you can try to lessen the annoyance of the line. Dual-Scan STN displays are composed of 2 panels behind a single protective panel or screen. Because you are looking through the protective screen the display appears to be one large panel even though it is not. There is a physical separation line (gap) at the point where the two panels meet. When the computer is on and being viewed it is not unusual to see the visible separation line with the Dual-Scan STN displays. The line, actually the fine gap between the display panels, appears because the color and light pixels cannot run along the very outside edges of the panels. This line (gap) between the panels can be seen as a fine gray line and is most noticeable when viewing on a screen with a white or light background. Note the line may not be as noticeable when the screen is displaying certain colors or darker backgrounds. SUGGESTIONS: It is not possible to completely eliminate the line but there are some things you can try to reduce it's visibility. 1) Lower the display brightness/contrast. The brighter the backlight the more noticeable the line. 2) Use Wallpapers and Screen savers that use darker colors. 3) In the Control Panel/Display applet under appearance try different combinations of color schemes for your Window and Background choice Let me know what happens. Good Luck, Tim
