Question about Dell Inspiron 5160 Notebook

1 Answer

Screen is black


This inspiron 5160 that is 3-4 years old during the middle of WOW just froze in about 1/4" vertical rows that were fuzzy white and other colors. So i turned off the laptop because it wasn't responding to any keyboard commands. The next day I started it up and the screen was black. Dark black without the backlight or anything. So I hooked it up to another screen and it worked fine. Is there any hope of fixing my laptop screen or do i need to play connected to the monitor of my other computer. P.S. It also has trouble holding a charge, I need to push it in further and also tilt it up for it to charge. Please help.

Thanks to whoever posts a comment

I think its the end of the monitor. I dont think there is anything that you can fix in this.

There are row and column drivers the operate the pixels on flat screen TVs. A black line either horizontal or vertical indicates a problem with the driver, connector, or the screen itself. It's likely not cost effective to fix being this old.

Tv is about 4 years old. Suddenly developed two


Your plasma screen is made up of 1080 verticle lines and now a few of these lines are not working. This is the screen itself and needs replacing.

White vertical line through laptop screen


The cause is a failure of the LCD, and you can fix it by replacing the LCD.

I have laptop dell inspiron 9300 it 17 sreen , it has a white verticle white line about on the middle about inche 1 1/8 wide hohow to fix? thank you...very much


Unfortunately, there is no way to fix it.
This line called "Tab Separation" of LCD.
You'll need whole new LCD display.
Very very common problem.

Screen black no sound or picture with line in center


this is a common problem,the vertical hold has been damaged.dont leave the teli. on,the white line will burn the middle of the screen and leave a black mark. You need a new integrated circuit(i.c.) for vertical hold.

Dell Inspiron 5160 Black screen on power up


There is a small board that the power button is integrated into that connects to the motherboard. When this power board malfunctions it will cause this issue with the machine. It can, and quite often does, damage the motherboard when it malfinctions. You should take the machine in for a power board replacement and a diagnostic to make sure that the power board hasn't damaged the motherboard.

Line accross top of the screen with flashing black and white boxes


Thin white dashes on top of screen is PERFECTLY NORMAL. It is nothing wrong with the TV, it is the broadcast. What you are seeing is the very bottom of the timecode running. It doesn't happen all of the time or all channels. It usually happens with old 4:3 commercials predating "Digital TV." This is mentioned in your Users Manual. You should be able to adjust the horizontal/vertical position in the menu settings.
