HP zd8000 vertical lines on lcd

My zd8000 is in the process of developing it's 10th vertical line. I have removed the battery and elevated the laptop to allow better air circulation and allow for better heat disapation, all to no avail. HP is not in the business of satisfying customers, no longer produces quality products, it's printers are no better than the computers. I will no longer recommend an HP product to anyone who asks which product they should purchase. If everyone who has purchased an HP product and is experiencing the same results where to do the same, it might get someone's attention at HP.
I wonder if anyone experiencing problems with HP products ever gets a satisfactory resolution. I won't hold my breath waiting for HP to step forward.

    HP zd8000 gives to much trouble. Dead battery, verticle lines on screen, a very noise fan.

    Hi there.
    The problem you are describing covers all laptops regardless of make or model.
    Can you describe in detail what you are experiencing with the screen, are there any erratic colours or lines, do the lines stay in the same place, does moving the laptop lid change how it acts and does the screen go white from time to time or even black with the ghost image? Also is the machine still under warranty?

If the lines flicker when you move the lid, then it is probably the LCD cable. If they don't flicker, though, you need a new LCD.

LCD needs to be replaced.
Common problem in any brand called "Tab separation".

Vertical lines in hp zd8000


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. Usually screen replacement is the only answer to fix it. You can usually find replacement LCD on Ebay.

I have virtical lines on lap top


Once you start to get vertical lines on your LCD screen, it's usually time for a new screen. I would check first by running an external monitor just to be sure it's not the video card.

Same problem with my zd8000 HP Pavilion laptop


what has happened with your notebook is a simple wear factor. on the LCD screen there are ribbon cables witch join the main PCB controller head to the LCD laminated portion (what you see) have begun to wear. i have just recently replaced a screen because of the same issue. try gently flexing the the screen and see if the lines dissappear. next open the screen up, and check the cable running to the back of the screen take care as to not damage anything.

Hp pavillion zd8000 monitor has 37 vertical lines


Interesting that you counted them!
If you haven't tried to reinstall the video drivers, do that.
If that doesn't work, hook up an external monitor to see if the display is OK on that.
If it is, then your LCD screen has a problem and will need to be replaced.

Unfortunately, there is no way to fix it.
This line called "Tab Separation" of LCD.
You'll need whole new LCD display.
Very very common problem.

HP Pavilion ZD8000 vertical lines issue


Hi,
In answer to your question. It may be a screen problem. as the screen has a Matrix of vertical and horizontal line configuration.
I,d suggest trying the laptop/computer on an external monitor or screen. if it works fine on an external. then it could be assumed that the TFT Panel or invertor has a fault.
if the picture/display still has vertical lines on an external monitor, then the fault may lie, with the Mainboard.

Process of elimination, before spending any Money :)

Vertical thin linings on lcd monitor


It is due to immense use of your laptop. So dont worry, off it for some time and on it again. It will not come. It is the same problem i m facing with my laptop. All the best.
