Question about Toshiba Satellite P105-S6197 Laptop Notebook

2 Answers

My laptop LCD screen started to have vertical lines all the way across the screen. It was like every other lines was gone so there was a picture, it was just degreaded. That lasted off and on a few days then stopped. The last night the screen went blank with only a light along the bottom of the screen, a back light I guess. I can adjust the screen brightness on the keyboard and I can see the light along the bottom edge brighten and dim but no picture.

Hi,
The problem is more or less with the LCD panel . The problem is generally caused by a faulty LCD inverter cable.
To check weather its the LCD or the video card causing the problem. Connect an external display to the laptop Tap on the Fn + F8 key to toggle the display to the external display. if you see video the LCD would need to replaced

I have 5 thin vertical white lines on the screen sound is fine.


It looks like the problem is comming from your LCD chips, they are starting to burn out and that is why you get this lines across your tv set, if you leave it like that the problem is only going to get worst
the lines will get bigger until it finally covers your whole screen you need to replace the OPTICAL BLOCK to fix this problem
good luck hopes this helps

TV TURNS ON,LINES ACROSS SCREEN THEN TURNS OFF BY ITSELF


sounds like a vertical problem, usually you'll see one white line across the screen, but one I worked on would come on and the bottom half of the picture was gone and there were lines across the top of the screen.

If you know how to solder & can find the vertical output chip then you could try resoldering the pins. If this doesn't fix it then it needs new parts.

If you can see the vertical lines during POST, try to check the vertical lines in BIOS. If the vertical lines are there in BIOS, the only thing you can do is to replace your LCD screen.

I have a HP ZD8000 Laptop.I get square patterns across my screen and sometimes just vertical lines. the problem sometimes goes away but also gets worse when I put pressure on the LED panel.


If you are getting the same screen in BIOS then the LCD screen has gone bad and needs to be replaced but if not then do a BIOS update and then reinstall the video driver and restart the Laptop.

Laptop screen displays vertical lines of various colours


Have you tried to connect your laptop to external monitor?
If you get normal picture on external monitor, then you need to replace LCD screen, but if you get same picture on external screen, then unfortunately you will need new motherboard, because graphics card is integrated to motherboard.
