Question about Computers & Internet
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.

I have a Toshiba Satellite C655. The screen is malfunctioning as you can see. The screen has 3 vertical striped lines which has divided the screen into separate parts. The cursor will not pass through

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.

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.

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.

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.
