Pavilion zt1130 monitor problems

At first i noticed the bottom 1/3 of screen developing horizontal white lines. Now the lines are all over the place making it impossible to use. An external monitor work just fine but that kind of defeats the purpose of a laptop. Is the whole screen died or is the a part i can replace?

Re: pavilion zt1130 monitor problems

For the time being its dying I hate to say this but its true. WHY because I have one and thats what Im using now. My laptop is an HP when I bought it it had a Warranty so I sent it to be repaired and the Datacom people and Agency for HP rang me and said I have to pay $1300 to repair this machine because of negligence. I ask what do you mean he said I had a cracked screen that I did it. Some weeks later I spoke to friends about this problem I had and they said they heard heaps about it too. Well the short story to this and I dont mind broadcasting it. Hewlet Packards are ****...they specially built my machine for things such as this to break and yell negligence. Now to get back to your problem eventually your screen will be no longer functioning and the only way for you to survive is to go the cheap way. I went out and bought a PHILLIPS flat screen moniter 17" with PC and TV capabilities and Im over the moon.....your right it defeats the purpose but for a few bucks less I would rather this way then that useless HP way.

The LCD screen on my Hewlett Packard Pavilion has gone scratchy. In areas that should be white there are horizontal cyan lines. To the right of words and other things there are places that are white and...


Your problem are related with my laptop problem, but i totally fix it with my own. From my experience I can tell that this problem may be related to the following:
1. Loose connection between the video cable and the LCD screen.
2. Defective LCD screen.
3. Defective motherboard (I assume the graphics card is integrated into the motherboard).
1-laptop-white-screen.jpg Here’s an example of a laptop with white screen. When you turn on the laptop, it starts but the image on the screen is completely white right from the beginning. In my case it was a Toshiba Satellite M45 laptop but this problem may occur with any other brand.

Most likely you still can use the laptop with an external monitor. Just connect the monitor to the VGA port on the back or side of your laptop and then switch the video output from internal to external mode.
On Toshiba laptops you can toggle between internal and external screens using Fn+F5 keys. Hold down Fn and press on F5 until you get video on the external monitor.
On IBM laptops use Fn+F7.
On HP laptops use Fn+F4.
It’s possible that you have to use a different key combination on your laptop but you get the idea.
On some laptops, in order to be able to use the external monitor, you have to connect it to the laptop and then restart the laptop so the external monitor is detected by the laptop.
3-video-cable.jpg I noticed that in some cases the laptop screen may turn white because of poor connection between the video cable and the LCD screen. If you want to check this connection, you’ll have to take apart the display panel because the connector is located on the back side of the LCD screen.

4-reconnect-video-cable.jpg I always check the video cable connection first. Reconnecting the video cable may fix your problem.
If reconnecting the video cable doesn’t help, most likely you have a problem either with the LCD screen or with the motherboard.
5-disconnect-lcd-screen.jpg The best way to find out witch one is causing the problem is testing the laptop with another working LCD screen. Without this test you’ll have to guess because as I mentioned before this could either bad motherboard or bad LCD screen.
You’ll have to disconnect the video cable from the LCD screen (connector 2) and the inverter board (connectors 3 and 1). After that you connect another working screen and test video.
6-test-with-another-lcd-screen.jpg For this purpose you using one of my test LCD screens. My test screen is cracked and because of that you see a wide white band in the center but it still works fine for this test.
The original screen is white but my test screen works normal (except the crack of course) and I can see the image. After this test I can tell that the problem must be related to the screen.
7-white-lcd.jpg After I'm assembled everything back together and connected the original LCD, it’s still white.
In my case this problem is related to the LCD screen and it has to be replaced.

That's my laptop brand and model, and i am searching an image regarding about my problem. This problem are common to another brand.

Hope it may helpful for you! Thanks for using fixya.

Good luck

HP Pavilion zd8000 got my first horizontal line.

A horizontal line on your LCD display is either caused by the video chip on your system board or the LCD screen itself. Either way it will not cause you to lose data on your hard drive. It is a video problem.
By connecting an external monitor from a desktop PC to the back or side of your notebook and switching to it by using your function keys (see manual), you can see if the problem is also on the monitor (meaning video chip problem) or stays only on the notebook LCD (LCD problem).
The video chip problem means you will need a system board. The LCD problem means you will need a new LCD panel. In rare cases, reseating of the ribbon cable on the back of the LCD panel will fix the red line.

You are not alone with this problem. Some lines (like mine) run vertically rather than horizontally. The solution - sue HP. These screens have a known fault ie the Nvidia graphics chip is known to be the culprit. The company knows all about this issue but expect us to pay to put it right - sue them, you can do it online for around £35 (UK).

Videocard problem?

Hello Gergerald,

To isolate the issue further connect the notebook to an external monitor and check the display on it. If the display is perfect on external monitor then the issue is with the LCD screen of the notebook.

If you have got the same lineds on the external monitor then the issue is with the video card of the notebook.

Try using an external monitor,every laptop has a blue VGA connector,just connect a monitor there and check is those lines
disappear,if it does,probably you have a problem with the internal connection of your monitor to the motherboard.
