Question about Cell Phones

1 Answer

Blind Screen I Dropped it, in a leather case, and the screen has turned into vertical stripes based off of what's supposed to be there. I've been able to interact with it, and it responds correctly, but it is "blind", as it were. i have been told the color, screen setting can reboot it where as a hard reboot couldn't. Yes, I tried the hard reset, same result. I want to know if there is another way. It would take me a long time to find the reset, if it exists, because I'm using the tablet blind. HELP ME!!!Is there a reset, such as described, or not?

SOURCE: vertical white striped screen

If a lot of pressure is added to the screen this can cause it to fracture internally. Sounds to me like you need a trip to an Apple repair center if you've already tried rebooting it.

SOURCE: Magenta vertical stripe sets plus grid dots problem

Staples office supply store said it was the monitor and, after buying and installing a new $200 monitor, I discovered it wasn't the monitor. I brought my hard drive to a reputable computer repair place, who charged me $50 total to install a new video card. He also supped up my hard drive with an additional 512K ram for $20 and now things are so much better. You were right! It was the video card.

Vertical rainbow stripes on my GB color

I would say that the screen is causing the lines in a gameboy colour the lines are not the same like it would be in an orginal gameboy the one with the four batteries. Lines in gameboy color are the screen issues then the whole screen would have to be replaced on the GBC then.

5 inch wide blue vertical stripe on lcd

It can be but rarely the main board, most of these sets have either one or two boards that drive the image on the screen, different names like T-con or Y out etc. the right side board could be the problem or a bad connector or ribbon cable for that side of the screen unit.

Several possible cures and none are a snap to find in most cases.

Turning it on the picture is fine and clear but after a short time the screen switches from picture into vertical stripes

Hi Karl,

First of all, thank you for posting your question here at Fixya.

The symptoms you've described is an indication of fault on the LCD controller board(T-con board) inside the TV. This board processes the images and will feed to the LCD panel to generate picture. The chips and other parts on this board gone bad that's why the screen turns to vertical stripes after a short period of time because of an overload. It is located at the bottom center inside the set and covered with metal shielding.

I've saw this board at I would advice you to check the actual part no. of your T-con board that is printed on the board itself because there's some instances that the manufacturer used different version of this board(depend on the LCD panel) with same model number.

Also, don't forget to check if your unit is under warranty period (1 year), if so avail it because the manufacturer will fix it for free. Opening the rear cover will void the warranty.
Hope I helped you.
Again, thank you. Good luck and take care!

Screen only showing vertical lines after being dropped

The damage could be either in the LCD screen or the connection cable. Open the screen assembly and check the connection cable first.
In case it doesn't work you can find replacement LCD screens here.

Sony Trinitron Color Rainbow

Usually when a tv is dropped the phospher screen inside the picture tube will detatch making the rainbow color This cannot be fixed as it requires changing the picture tube. Only other thing is demagnatize it with a demagnitizing coil (used by tv techs) but not likely to fix it since it was dropped. You have a bad picture tube.
