What you have there is a shortage in the wiring somewhere. This could have been caused from attempting to take it apart, dropping it, mis-manufacturing, and many other variables, but that is DEFINITELY what the underlying cause is. The best method to fix this, is just ship it back to them, and raise hell if they try to act like it's not their fault.
YES, you COULD replace it yourself, but there are a LOT of parts that could be affecting this, and ultimately, you could end up 1. destroying your laptop, and 2. spending nearly a thousand dollars just trying to pinpoint, and fix the problem. So I say let them deal with it.

Screen won't come on when laptop powers on

1. Software
- Try Fn + F5 or something like that

2. Electrical
- Remove battery, unplug power, hold power button for 60 seconds, turn on computer with power plug only, then shutdown, add battery and restart

3. Magnetic On/Off Switch to detect of Close/Open Lid
- Your magnet switch is fubar some how. Open up the speaker cover and see if your lid actuator switch that come in contact with the magnet on your lid cover is stuck or not (find where the magnet is in the back of the front lid cover, trace where the magnet area actually touches the base of the computer and you will find the switch)
- Workaround, start windows with lid at 30 degree angle

We have a Compaq CQ60 laptop with display issues. Display only works at certain angles. Moving toward open or closed causes loss of horizontal sync. Screen is still bright. External display is unaffected...

you may have a bad inverter of bad inverter connector....or the connector is loose.. this can cause perminant damage if left untreated. most likely you may have a loose connection,,are you under warranty?

I have compaq presario V3000 model when i open the the laptop only at one position display comes if i have to work i have to hold the screen portion and adjest it so that the it can display properly. how...

You may need to take the lid apart and check the connecting ribbon cables, sounds like you have a loose connection.
You may also have a loose solder connection, that only connects at a certain angle. A little heat from a soldering iron should do it

Computer will not go into STBY or Hibernate when lid is closed

if the option is checked, and it doesn't work, the switch under the screen to base closing needs to be adjusted/replaced. i would double check settings and intallation disk if this does not work.
