A line appears across my screen on my medion laptop

I sent my laptop in for repair a few months ago. It was not charging. The lead was faulty.....When it came back a fine grey line appeared on the screen. After a few months this has got worse. It appears all over the screen intermitantly.
It is now grey, black and yellow and looks very similar to lego bricks...Anyone come across this before......

Perhaps your monitor is faulty. You should check it out at a repair store. Also, if you have a VGA connector for an external monitor, try with that. If the lines are gone, that means your monitor is faulty.

Did you buy this new? If so, it should still be under warranty. You'll probably have to ship it back to Dell and let them fix it. I have had similar problems before and that ended up being the answer.

A laptop went for repair two weeks ago and I ask of progress ref 110906041 Job no. 39549648 Roy Myers


You could not have sent your laptop to FixYa for repairs because FixYa is not a repair centre.
You need to contact the repair shop where you sent your laptop to be repaired and ask them for a progress report.

Few days back suddenly i found that a green vertical line appeared on my lenovo laptop and it still appearing on the screen whenever i open the laptop. please tell me how can i get rid of it...........


This is a fault with the display driver. The only possiblity is to check if there is any loose connection in the lines leading from the mainboard to the display through the hinges.
If by checking the line disappears then the fault is confirmed as this harness can be defective.
otherwise the drive IC can be faulty.

Vertical lines on my lcd laptop screen


It's the connector problems.
If you know what to do, I can guide you:

First, remove the screw all over the LCD case, then you can see the connector, and flexible cables.
Second, remove the keyboard unit(by removing all screw on the unit), after removed, find the edge of the LCD cables, then you can see the connector.

The solution:
1.Try clean this two connector with soft brushes ( paint brush is good ), by removing the cable first,then clean the flexible connector using wet tissue ( use the alcohol ).

2. If still exist, you need to replace the flexible with new ones.

Black screen on Acer 5100, but will work with external monitor


It sounds like the control board or cable for the LCD may be damaged. If you're still under warranty, you'll need to send it back to Acer to be repaired.
