Compaq v6420 inverted colors with vertical lines

My laptop is about 60 days old and wouldnt you know that it started at day 45, 15 days past warranty inthe store. Before I kiss it good bye for 6 plus weeks what could be the issue. I hooked it up to an external monitor and everything is fine. Does this mean it is in the LCD?

Re: Compaq v6420 inverted colors with vertical lines

Sounds much like a bad LCD.... maybe you could upload a picture online and post the link here in order to illustrate better?
Can you "flex" the screen a little and notice a difference in lines or colors? Don't bend it to the point of breaking it, just a slight tweak in flexing. If you notice changes in the screen behavior, then I would say bad lcd.
Slight chance of a mainboard issue, very slight. But none the less, I would be on the phone trying to get a warranty replacement. Sometimes they will give in when it is only days out.

Vertical aqua colored line on the screen of my laptop

the cells inside of the lcd itself are starting to go bad which is why your seeing lines on the screen. To fix the problem you'll need to replace the lcd.

In the meantime you can hook up an external monitor and use that so you don't have to deal with lines on a bad lcd screen.

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: 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.

Yellow vertical lines on the screen of my DELL inspiron 9300

The pixels are shot - common for lower priced LCD monitors. Once it starts, it will continue. Theres no inexpensive fix for it - time to retire the Compaq

Yellow vertical lines on the screen

This is usually an indication of a faulty connection between the screen and the board. Sometimes a tweak rid the lines, but more than not its time to change the screen or just live with it.

Replace the laptop under warranty. No point trying to fix the error and voiding the warranty.
