    Does the monitor flash or change when you open and close it?

  • andrew wakefield Nov 12, 2012

    No the picture quality is pretty much the same. No flashing or anything.

  • andrew wakefield Nov 12, 2012

    I don't know which laptop model is mine. I doubt I still have the box and the website has various versions of a Satellite C655. So I don't really know what to do. Also, the lines will go away if I continuously restart my laptop. It's just annoying that I have to restart it up to 5 times for it to run normally. I don't know if that changes anything. But the lines will sometimes come back after my computer has been shut down or goes to sleep for a while.

    That is crazy. I would start off by buying a new lcd replacement screen and installing it. It is a matter of unscrewing some screws and just being careful when it comes to the Laptop LCD lamp backlight lamps that illuminate the back. Most lcd screens will be sold with them already in place.

Had this problem once and a found out how to fix it. It's a hardware prob, to fix this prob your Pc has to be on while doing it, this way you can see if the problem has been fixed or not. You need to unscrew all screws on the shell of the screen. Then you remove the two screws found at the bottom of the screen they are found close to the hinge.
Now the back part of the shell should be off. once that is off just disconnect the silver cable that is connected to the screen and reconnect it again and bend and squeeze it to see if it is a shortage in the wire. If not remove it once more and reconnect it again. (should be fixed now)
Use a strip of tape to hold it in place and your done. use it for a couple hours to ensure it fully functional then put it back together and you're done.

Try updating the video driver on the laptop. The issue could be software related.

Click on the following link to go to Toshiba's downloads page. Select your laptop model and then download the newest video driver.

SOURCE: Toshiba Satellite P105-S6124 Screen lines

Are these lines on the screen during the whole boot process? If so then the screen cpu and/or the video cpu has gone bad. Connect an external monitor. If the picture is clear, no lines, then the problem is the LCD screen. If the lines appear on the external monitor during the boot process then the mother board will need replacement.

Good Luck

SOURCE: Vertical lines in my laptop screen

if the lines flicker and change when you put pressure on the screen it sounds defective lcd screen, there are these conductive rubber pieces that lead the signal into the lcd panel and once the connection deteriorates there is no going back. the screen could still be replaced, there are laptop repair places that do it, but you have to have to weigh your options with buying a new laptop, repair could be up to 50% of what your's is worth as a 2nd hand laptop.
you can try to fix it yourself, there are guides online on google and you usually get the screen on ebay for around 150.

You have display problem comes from impact or presure to top of the laptop. That is moves the connection flex cable from LCD and board.
Another small problems is also small chips on screen that can not be possible to fixed. ( cracks on METAL LINEs IN GLASS) causes the problem.Another issue is LCD cable might faulty that need to be change.
Show techGuy see what they will tell you.
Goodluck

SOURCE: Vertical lines in my laptop screen

I have the same problem too.

Its like my laptop has had a stroke. Not only do I have the coloured lines issue but I also have a stripe that is about 5inches wide (Everything in it is darker on half the screen).

I thought i'd put this comment here just in case anyone got in touch with Toshiba. copy and paste this entire thread to show them that THIS IS A COMMON PROBLEM.

Not that they would care any way- Toshiba don't build things to last any more. My sister has had two Toshibas break just after the warrantys have expired. I have two friends with the same Equium A60 laptop as me and all overheat and turn off.

Come on Toshiba, sort it out. Every customer you get, is a customer that will not be returning and probably put off for life. I know I will never be buying from you again.
Is that the kind of service that you want to be giving?

"At Toshiba quality and reliability is at the heart of everything we do. With technologies being developed in more than 30 separate R&D laboratories and over 300 subsidiary companies around the world Toshiba engineers are dedicated to finding the best product solutions for you, the customer."

Why don't your products last then???????

Instead of rushing to get your products out and spending a fortune on advertising, spend more time and money on PRODUCT TESTING . You'll see that word of mouth, satisfied and possibly even (dare I say it) happy customers will get you a lot more sales and respect than any advertising campaign can do.

Hope to see some improvements soon and I pity anyone that is struggling with their Toshiba.

Best Regards

Did you damage your screen (i.e. step on it, wet it, ect.)? If you did then you might have to take it in for repair. Regardless, you might just need to call a troubleshooting or help line/number, for that particular brand ( i.e. dell, toshiba,ect.)

Connecting charger and letting charge for sometime...charging light doesnt turn on and laptop doesnt turn on...any advise?


For this kind of issue, please follow up the following steps to check:

1.confirm the battery and ac adapter connect the laptop normally.Maybe the bad connect lead to this problem. If there are no lights when you turn on laptop, one of possible reason is that your adapter is malfunction.

2.the second possible cause is laptop dc jack failure. If the dc jack is broken or loose, you are required to replace it or repair it.

3.Another possible reason is that there is something wrong with laptop motherboard. For this situation, it includs two kinds of possibility,a failure in an electronic circuit and BGA malfunction.

For more detailed reasons and solutions, please have a look at the following article:http://www.ifitjams.com/lappower.htm

If you verify your laptop adapter is dead and you plan to order a new one, I recommend one for you on the basis of your laptop model:

How do I replace the keyboard?


next to the F1 key and the windows key (2nd upper key and second to last key) are two screws, usually under some covering. unscrew and lift top edge of the keyboard towards the trackpad to lay face down. Undo the wire ribbon by lifting the grey or brown tabs and remove ribbon and keyboard. Then install the new keyboard by inserting the ribbon on the place. Lock down with the tabs and put the plastic prongs (close to the space bar) into the laptop body first, and then close keyboard onto the final position. screw back in and thats all. nboulikas@gmail.com for any additional questions.
