LCD screen on Dell laptop displaying unstable picture: a ribbonlike portion across bottom of screen

I have a Dell laptop with an LG Phillips LP154W01 15.4" LCD screen. It is displaying an unstable picture; a ribbonlike area across the bottom of the screen. The rest of the display seems fine but when I touch or squeeze the screen the problem blinks erraticly and uneven, which comes and goes. It was dropped so I'm not sure if it needs replacement or if something came loose and is repairable. Thank you.

Black screen delld600


Several things can cause your Dell Latittude D600 laptop's LCD screen to stop working.

Two of the most common causes relate directly to the inverter board and the backlight lamp.


The inverter board is a thin circuit board placed inside the LCD panel.

It's main function is to transfer power from the motherboard to the backlight bulb inside the LCD screen.


If the inverter board goes bad or the backlight lamp burns out, the screen will appear dim or eventually go completely black.


Turn off the laptop, unplug the power cable, close the LCD panel and place the laptop face down.

Remove the battery pack from its compartment on the bottom of the computer.


Flip the laptop back over and reopen the display panel all the way until it is in a 180-degree position.

Insert a flat head screwdriver into the right side of the keyboard bezel.


This is the plastic strip situated above the top row of keyboard keys. Carefully pry the bezel from the laptop.

Remove the two Phillips screws located above the top row of keyboard keys.


Grasp the top edge of the keyboard, tilt it upward and lay the keyboard face down on the palm rest area.

Unplug the keyboard's ribbon cable from the motherboard connector.


Carefully remove the entire keyboard from the laptop.

Disconnect the video and speaker cables extending from either side of the LCD panel to the motherboard.


Loosen the Phillips head screws on each LCD panel hinge.

Carefully lift the entire LCD panel off the laptop's base.


Relocate the panel to a flat work surface, and place the panel so the screen is facing upward.

Use a thin, flat head screwdriver to pry the rubber screw covers from the LCD panel's front plastic cover.


Remove the Phillips head screws revealed by the rubber covers.

Carefully remove the front plastic cover from the display panel.


Locate the inverter board situated below the LCD screen, inside the bottom edge of the display panel.

Disconnect the two cables from each end of the inverter.


Remove the two Phillips head screws fastening the inverter to the display panel.

Carefully lift the inverter board out of the display panel, and dispose of it.


Repeat this procedure in reverse to install the new inverter board, and reassemble the laptop.


Hope this helps

Streak in LCD Screen


Judith,

I'm going to state in my own words, as to what I think you have stated, originally; (Please bear with me as this may be clumsy)

" I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 Notebook PC.
This laptop has problems with the Hinges, and Base Cover.

The Base Cover area where the Hinges, and their respective screws go, is beyond repair. To properly repair it, I would need to purchase a Base Cover, Hinges, Hinge Brackets, and a 'Bezel'."

At this stage I am a little unclear,
" I think I would have to buy the entire bottom of the case,
{ Base Cover. Got it }, and replace the bezel that had pieces break off at the hinges too,....."

Hmmm.....Bezel....
Bezel that is close to the Hinges,..........

1) The Display Bezel that is in Front of the LCD screen? Thin plastic frame that resembles a picture frame? Bottom part has Hinge Covers formed in it?

2) Palm Rest Cover?
The cover that covers the top of the Body, of the laptop?

The major portion is below the Keyboard towards you. The rest of the Palm Rest Cover, is two rectangular pieces on each side of the Keyboard.

One of these two pieces broke? (Connector piece?)

3) Center Control Cover?
Is above the Keyboard, and below the Display Assembly.
Has the Power on button in it, for one.

To go on;

You purchased the same model on Ebay?

Same exact model number? Look on the bottom of the laptop.

Reasoning?
Primer:

An LCD screen cannot produce light by itself. It needs an additional light source.
A Backlight is the additional light source.

A Backlight (Present technology), can be a CCFL, or a series of LED lights.
The Dell Inspiron 1525 series used a CCFL.

Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp.
Similar to Fluorescent lighting used in homes, and businesses, but on a MUCH smaller scale.

(Approximately 2mm Thick, by almost the height of the LCD screen, Long.
2mm is a little larger than 1/16th of an Inch. { .0787 )

A screen Inverter is used to convert the power (Electricity) from the laptop, for the LCD screen, and the Backlight.

Point?
The screen Inverter, and the LCD screen, are a MATCHED unit.

Looking at the back of both LCD screens, what is the Dell part number/s, or LCD manufacturer model number/s?

[ One LG example from an article on InsideMyLaptop,

http://www.insidemylaptop.com/replace-lcd-screen-inverter-dell-inspiron-1525-laptop/

Scroll all the way down to Step 14. Read under the first photo, and view the second photo ]

Want to see if the LCD screen you are using, matches the Inverter in the laptop.

Dell, just like all laptop manufacturers, use different manufacturers of LCD screens. (LG, Sharp, Hitachi, etc)
May go with one for a few years, then off to a different one. (Or one's)
May change when a particular laptop model comes out.

The LCD screens may be slightly different models. In turn they would use different screen Inverters.
This = No.

4) Translucent 'streak' going from bottom left corner, to upper right corner.

That translates to;

A) Video Cable damage (Dell = Display Cable)
B) LCD screen damage
C) Bad graphics chipset

Have you used an external monitor to diagnose? A VGA monitor?
If so disregard the following;

A) Laptop OFF, monitor OFF. Connect a VGA monitor to the laptop.
You can use a CRT monitor (Looks like a small TV), or a flat LCD screen monitor that has a VGA cable attached.

Example of a VGA Cable, and VGA port, (Connector),

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector

Connect to the left side of the laptop.

B) Turn the monitor on. If a CRT type allow it to warm up.
Turn the laptop on.
By default the display should show on the external VGA monitor.
If not:

Hold the Fn key down, simultaneously tap once on the F8 key.
Still nothing showing on external monitor?

You have at least three display options;
1) Internal monitor of laptop ONLY
2) Internal monitor of laptop AND external VGA monitor
3) External VGA monitor ONLY.

Try again.

If the display is the same on the external VGA monitor, you have a bad graphics chipset. (G.P.U.)

If Not, the problem lies in the Display Cable, or screen Inverter, or LCD screen.

As you have seen the Display Cable connects to the motherboard, then routes up under the Left Hinge, and up into the Display Assembly.

The Display Cable can be damaged from normal use, over time.
Now add to it that you have had extensive Hinge problems.

If the sheath of the cable shows any visible damage, the tiny wires inside stand a chance of being damaged, also. (Stretched/Broken)

I would suggest testing the Display Cable. Perform a continuity test with a multimeter, for each wire in the Display Cable.

[ An economical multimeter can be purchased for around $8 to $12.
Available in a multitude of stores. An auto parts store is but one example.
Or perhaps you know someone who has a multimeter. Analog or digital is fine]

C) Did you reconnect the Wireless Antenna Cables correctly?
Reaching here but inquiring minds want to know.

[ The above is from - Dell Support > Inspiron 1525/1526 Service Manual,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/ins1525/en/SM/index.htm

]

D) Would like to know what you did to follow Anti-Static Precautions?


I'm not following on the points of;

1) You installed what you considered to be a working LCD screen, into a laptop you bought off of Ebay; and the display stopped working on the Ebay laptop?

Or;

2) Or is your statement, that after receiving the Ebay laptop, your original laptop would no longer show graphics on it's display?

IMHO I would use the case parts of the Ebay laptop, and rebuild your original laptop.

Awaiting corrections, and possible questions.

Yes, you need to replace the screen, and it has to be the exact model. LCD screens break all the time, and it's not cost effective to repair them.

Display


First, plug an external monitor and toggle the screen to check if the image is displayed correctly. This will discard software or configuration issues.
If the image is correct in the external monitor the problem is in the LCD screen. This can be replaced. You can find replacement LCD screens for Toshiba Satellite here:
