SOURCE: LCD screen looks like bad TV reception

if the display returns to normal when you press the bezel at on end means there is a bad connection to the inverter behind the bezel itself or the inverter is ready to give up the ghost.
you can attempt to dismantlethe laptop and remone the lid or in some cases just unscrew the bezel and remove the plastic cover, the inverter is at the bottom of the display you can't miss it

hope this helps


regards

SOURCE: Laptop screen goes black, no backlite

You could have a defective screen - a defective inverter or a CCFL lamp.
To determine if you have a LCD screen or video card problem, read this and follow the instructions.

Defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom:

  • Screen flashs on red/pink and off.
  • Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal.
  • Picture flickering with dim display or appear black.
  • Picture flickering on and off.
All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp

Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power it up, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight.

Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

SOURCE: My Acer Laptop screen fades or goes out when moved

Try reseating the video cable/connector. Also connect an external monitor to the external video port, power up the monitor first then boot up the laptop. The video image should automatically divert to the monitor, if you see a normal video image then the video card is OK and the problem most likely the LCD screen.

My vga port doesn't work right


Your VGA connector has a broken solder joint on the video board or the mother board. This isn't an easy fix.

Suggest you look for a VGA to USB dongle or adapter instead. Install the driver, and you should be good to go. You'll just have to take your dongle along whenever you need a VGA connection.

Blotted screen in my hp laptop


1.Locate the problem pixel. Display a true black image on your HP's monitor. You can do this by playing a DVD on your HP laptop, and pausing it on the black screen just before the movie starts. Once you bring up a black image on screen, the stuck or dead pixel should be visible.
2.Try applying direct pressure to the problematic pixel. After you've located it, turn off your laptop. Place a soft cloth or rag over the pixel to avoid damaging your screen. A soft chamois works well. Using the tip of a pen, apply gentle pressure to the pixel. You don't need to press hard, as too much pressure can crack or scratch your screen. While applying pressure, boot up your laptop. This should force the pixel to begin working properly.
3.Tap the pixel. With your Toshiba booted up and an image on the screen, gently tap the pixel with the rounded end of a pen cap. Tap hard just hard enough to see a small white flash on the screen. Tap your HP's screen until the pixel begins working properly.
4.Download a stuck pixel program. Several programs, including JScreenFix, UDPix and Pixel Protector, are available for download and can help fix a malfunctioning pixel. These programs display rapidly changing colors and images on your screen. The flashing colors and images can force the pixel to begin functioning properly.
5.Contact HP. If none of the above methods work, your screen may have a pixel that is truly dead. If that's the case, the only option is to replace the display completely. Contact HP customer support at www.hp.com to find an authorized repair service near you.

The display fades out unless I press on the plastic molding around the top of the screen. If I keep pressure there, the display works, but if I let go, the screen fades. What's the problem?


There is a loose connection inside your lcd monitor. This is not a user-serviceable case. Proceed to your local service center. Pressing or applying pressure to your monitor may cause some more trouble and defect to your laptop. Goodluck.

Screen gets blurred and comes back after applying pressure on LCD


from your description, it appeas to be an issue with the LCD since applying pressure has effect on it. I would advise to check with compaq for warranty repairs if you still have one active. The LCD may have to be replaced for this situation. You can try to use an external monitor to check if the video controller actually works properly

Acer 5720 - cursor/keyboard: applying pressure causes jumping


Solution one: Don't apply pressure to left side of laptop :)
Solution two: Bits of hardware (like your touchpad) plug into the mainboard with thin ribbon connectors. Sounds like this has become loose, or something is shorting against something else. Solution is to take it to bits and reseat the connectors on the mainboard. Not easy to do and I really don't recommend you do it unless you know what you are doing; laptops are so fiddly and difficult to get apart.

If it's in warranty then get Acer to sort it. If not you may want to pay to get it fixed (or go with solution one!).

Computer Freezes unless pressure applied


With the laptop turned off, take out the hard drive completely from the laptop and then reseat it back into its slot and make sure its nice and snug.

Then go ahead and turn it on and see it will run without freezing on you and having to apply pressure on the keyboard.

If that doesn't work then disconnect the keyboard and see if it will run smoothly without the keyboard. If it does then you might have a stuck key on the keyboard that is making the unit freeze so you might have to replace the keyboard.

Monitor goes in and out


Hi,
do you mean to say that your system shuts down when you are not pressing the laptop ie, the power light also goes off when you are not applying the pressure, or just the monitor goes blank and power light is on when there is no pressure
in both the above cases i think you should call technical support for your laptop, because it seems like a hard ware problem

Further Queries are welcome

Dell Inspiron 6000 Laptop LCD Problem


This is most likely going to be a loose connection. You will need to take the the plastic bezel that surrounds the screen off, the screws are hidden under the small rubber bumpers. Then take the screen loose, you will see he four screws holding the screen at the sides. Tilt the screen forward and you will see the connection on the back. Make sure this connection is seated properly, you may need to apply some new tape on it if it has any. Then check any other connections while you're there. If the problem persists, then the cable may need replacing.

Hp pavilion dv5000 laptop screen distortion


Same here. However mine is a toshiba satellite. Starts fine but after a minute or two its like watching tv in the 60s all sorts of white lines distort the screen. So i took the back off and removed all of the screws for the sceen around the top and bottom. Just the ones that mount it to the cover. By applying pressure to certain parts i managed to narrow it down and after about 10 attempts at ptting it all back together i did it with 2 screw missing in the top left hand corner and low and behold it seems to work fine. I am thinking that over time maybe some of the mouldings expand and maybe apply pressure onto the back of the screen and start to cause problems. I am not saying this is a cure for all but it certainly worked for me. Good Luck.
