Possible cause:

1. Video card failure.
2. Bad connection between video cable and LCD screen.
3. Bad LCD screen.
4. Faulty video cable.


Possible troubleshooting steps and repair solution:

1. First of all, test the laptop video output on the external monitor. If you see same flashing lines running through the image on the external monitor, you have a problem with the video card. If flashing lines appear only on the laptop screen, the failure is not related to the video card.

2. Just in case, try re-seating the video cable connectors on the motherboard/video card and maybe the back of the LCD screen. It' s not likely but possible that connection is loose and reconnecting the cable will fix the flashing lines.

3. If re-seating the cable connectors doesn't help, most likely you have a faulty LCD screen. The LCD screen has to be replaced.

4. If replacing the screen doesn't help, try replacing the video cable. It's very unlikely that this problem is related to the video cable but there is a slight possibility of that.

How do i get rid of the horizontal and vertical lines on a sony prs 600? the unit was never dropped or mishandled. they actaull appeared as i was reading my book on it


Hi mdill9759,

Looks like a problem with the screen itself. Try this to see fi you can get issue resolved, good luck:

1. Hit the "Reset" button at the bottom of the reader
2. Slide the power switch, at this point the screen should blink and show "Opening book"
3. Allow the reader to load and see if the lines still appear on the screen

If the lines are still on the screen, contact Sony to get it repaired.

White horizontal lines appear in the screen


you may just need to reseat the cables. basically all you have to do is take the keyboard bezel off of the laptop and disconnect and reconnect the cables on the lcd. you usually do not need to unscrew anything but a pick would help. Just simply pry it off using a pick or small flatheadd80ef8a.jpg

Horizontal lines


I am a laptop/PC technician and this problem is probably being caused by either a loose or damaged screen cable inside the laptop, a faulty or overheating graphics card or an incorrect graphics driver.

Unfortunately without actually seeing it I can't say which it is, but I would first off get a PC or laptop specialist to check to see if the graphics card driver software is correct, as this is easy and quick to sort out if this is your problem.

If this isn't the problem then I would just backup all your documents/files and return the laptop to Sony under warranty as a hardware fault could be expensive to repair.

I hope this helps.
