Right hand third of screen missing

I have had dotted vertical lines on the screen for some weeks, but now the right hand 1/3rd of screen shows just blue, (desktop colour), thus I cannot read right hand side of screen on my Acer Aspire 1804WSMi. Can this be repaired?

Connect it to another screen using the vga connection, which is the blue connector on the laptop. If it comes up the same it could be your video card. If it is fine on the other screen then it is your LCD, which might cost you around 400$

It's a connection inside the TV that's faulty. It could be as simple as reseating the ribbon cables that connect the control board to the glass display. Or it could be that the fault is on the board and needs to be replaced. The fact that the problem comes and goes should tell you it's fixable.

More than likely your control board. Available at www.partstore.com Cost could be between $130 and $200. Not that complicated to install if you can use a screwdriver and are careful. Let me know how this works out.

Red vertical line down right side of the screen


hi

I think your TV have a trouble inside lcd panel
the controller board contains driver IC. Deffective driver IC can cause of line display.

Three reasons why one vertical line accross screen can happen in LCD;

1.The missing signal from the controller IC to
LCD driver.
2. LCD driver IC itself defective
3. Dry contact in the tape carrier package.

Use masking or electrical tape to mark it where the line was located. press it if the line back to normal but when release your hand came back i think it was intermittent. Open the LCD panel

Gateway laptop vertical dotted lines across the screen


Sounds like a problem with the LCD assembly or cable. You may want to reseat the LCD cable at the LCD end. It could be a loose internal connector in the LCD assembly.
