Question about Toshiba Satellite A205-S4617 Notebook

1 Answer

How do you open up a Toshiba Satellite A105?

There is something stuck in the left mouse button, and there is a vertical line of green dead pixels on the left side of the screen. My warranty is up. I want to open up the laptop so I can clean out the mouse buttons and get the part number of the LCD screen so I can order a replacement. I have removed the screws. I have opened Dells before but I can't figure out how to open this Toshiba. my toshiba left mouse button doesn't click anymore how do i fix?

Well i would not recommed you to open the toshiba all by your self... first of all you cannot compare any other system with a DELL as most of the DELL computers are easy to knockdown but the other in the market a complicated.. so contact a local tech.. or else see if you can find the instructions in the owners manual of your laptop..

yep, with Dell you can do, just for that reason. As for Toshiba...I found it will open if you drop it at 8'.....but not at 6'. However, if you have a serial number, toshiba.com call-in center will tell you about your computer's part numbers. I did that for a cd drive 2-3 years back.

Good Luck

A green vertical lines on my screen


What is happening to your laptop is the power line connecting a row of pixels is failing so only partial colors are showing up causing the vertical line(s). Usually screen replacement is the only answer to fix it. You can usually find replacement LCD on Ebay.

Blue vertical line


The lines appearing on your LCD means it has a defect on the screen.

There are 3 types of pixel defect
1) dead pixel - pixel is always off
2) stuck pixel - pixel is always on
3) hot pixel - pixel is on but in red, green, blue or yellow, can also be a light black color

You can try to fix stuck or hot pixels but dead is dead.
1st method, flashing different colors rapidly:
JSScreenfix.com has a great tool. This is their free java applet or you can download it below.

2nd method, applying pressure to pixel:
Damp paper towel, Small stylus or dull pencil.

3rd method, tapping the pixel:
Pen with cover on or another small, blunt object.


If your laptop is still under warranty, get it replaced. If not you are looking at the most expensive part in a laptop to get replaced. (LCD screens on laptop is roughly equivalent to 40-60% of the total laptop cost

Please rate this if it this helps.

Pink vertical line


From what you discribe it sounds like you have a row of dead pixels.

You can use this website to test for dead pixels:

If you run the test and confirm that you have dead pixels, contact the laptop's manufacturer for support.

Laptop screen issues


This is a bad pixel sensor. Your screen has hundreds of vertical and horizontal pixel sensors on the edge, if one goes out on either end it causes a dead pixel line through the screen. Unfortunately, the only way to fix it is to replace the screen. If you can live with the annoyance, I've seen screens last for years with a pixel line without any other problems.
