Averatec 4100 series white line on screen

I've had this laptop for a few years already; I usually don't use it that much. I have a small vertical white line down the center of the screen. What can I do to fix this issue or maybe a way to diagnose it correctly?

What usually causes this; can it be that I left it in the sun, left items on top of it when not in use... what?

Okay go to: Flexcode.org/lcd.html
Once there select toggle full screen, then try 2nd method. Click on ( go full screen now) Let this run for 30mins. to an hour. Keep on full screen.
Your labtop screen pixel can be stuck on that color. This should help it go back to normal. If not, I have another method. Try this one out first.
*NOTE* Do not try the Pressure Method or Tapping Method.

A vertical white line appears 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 white line. Usually screen replacement is the only answer to fix it.

Got white vertical lines on left side of display


Vertical lines on an LCD screen are not a good sign. This usually means that your screen is going bad.

Hello today I had an white vertical line in the center of my PC screen Gateway E2500s series would not shut down from the tower so IV turned it off with the surge and waited a few them turned it back on...


You mention in your post to branded laptops. You can try to check if the problem is from the LCD or from the Video card. Connect your laptop to an external monitor and check if the white vertical line appears, if yes replace motherboard if video card is integrated, if expansion then replace video card alone. If no lines from the external monitor then laptop LCD has the problem.

Averatec 2300 screen image 'whites out' or colored pin stripes


Just for the sake of information, the white of the screen means the backlight is working. LCD displays work by allowing light to pass through at different wavelengths, creating 'color.'
I doubt that your system has a separate, replaceable video card. This sounds a lot like a chip has developed and thermal problem. If you can buy 'freeze spray' there, try shooting it into various openings of the case when the problem is present. If this affects the display, you are probably going to need a replacement motherboard since the majority of the chips (ICs) are placed by robots and nearly impossible to replace by hand due to the pin spacing that is typical for modern ICs.
If you are courageous, you can get the case apart with 'jeweler's' screwdrivers. You will find that the screen assembly is connected to the main board via a flat ribbon cable that is likely stuffed into a questionable connector. You might try carefully pulling that cable from the connector and even more carefully, plug it back in again. Unfortunately, few companies are using any gold on connector contacts anymore and the materials used may oxidize and cause the kind of problem you are having.
