Laptop New LCD Screen Cycling Colors

My sister recently tripped and feel on my laptop making the screen only have usable other wise everything else works fine. So I got a new LCD screen and it just cycles though colors: black, white, grey, green, red, blue and so on. I returned the screen and had a replacement sent, but still the same problem. I just don't know whats up because both my broken screen and an external display work normally.

It's probably the wrong screen, cable ,or inverter; in spite of what the repair shop tells you .
Also, sometimes the cable gets pinched if not installed carefully, or the cable connector may need to be re-seated.
Is your laptop a Dell Precision M60 ? I'll see which screen it's supposed to have.

Dell Laptops (Has power no display issues)

1. Immediately run PSA. (Make sure laptop is connected to AC Adapter. Leave laptop off. Press and hold on the Fn key then press power button once).

2. Just wait for about 3 to 5 minutes then you might will hear beeping sounds (no display with beeping sounds) this means that laptop is working fine but no display. This might cause by either the video card or LCD.

3. After hearing beeps turn off laptop. (Press and hold on the power button for about 3 seconds)

4. Leave laptop off. Press and hold on the D key then press power button once. If full screen colors appears this means LCD is working fine and the problem is the video card. If no display from the LCD no colors were displayed try the test again just to make sure. If still the same no full screen colors then the problem is the LCD.

Lcd screen has lines in the middle area (3" wide


Laptop screen display problems occur for many different reasons. Some issues need professional attention, but others can be repaired by the owner. A screen that displays vertical lines often means that there is a problem with the video cable connection to the LCD screen, or the cable itself. In order to repair this problem, the display screen must be disassembled. If you feel confident that this task is within your realm of expertise, follow the steps below to remove your laptop's LCD panel and fix the vertical line problem on your laptop screen.

1. Remove the rubber seals covering the screws on your screen's outer frame using a flat-head screwdriver. Remove the screws, then carefully pry the frame from the screen using your fingers. Release the plastic latches holding the framing in place, then remove.

2. Remove the screws holding the screen to the support brackets. You will see the video cable, which is attached to the back of the LCD screen. Try unplugging and reconnecting this cable, making sure that it is seated properly. If the problem was the connection, this may solve the vertical line issue.

3. Turn on the laptop. Move the video cable around a bit, without moving or touching the screen. Check the screen to see if the display image changes at all. If it does, the problem may be with the cable itself.
4. Move the laptop screen around to see if this affects the display. If so, the problem is most likely with the LCD screen itself, not the video cable. Replacing the screen will be necessary.

I hope you find it very helpful. Best regards.

Screen has black blotches/spots


This could be due to a bad video card, but is much more likely to be a problem with your screen itself. What you described is likely to be caused by damaged or dead pixels in the screen. The cost of one is usually about half of the cost of the laptop itself, so you may want to consider buying a new laptop and salvage your data and other usable parts from this one.

Laptop screen illumination


The fault could be a faulty CCFL lamp or inverter.
To determine if you have a LCD screen, inverter or video card problem, read this and follow these instructions.
Defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom: Screen flashs on red/pink and off. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering with dim display or appear black. Picture flickering on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp.
Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

This is most likely either a.) the connection to the LCD is falling out or b.) the screen itself is going bad.
