Top half of my monitor screen shows at the bottom

Try plugging an external monitor to your laptop and see how it displays on it. It can be any kind of monitor even the old fat crt's as long as it has a vga cable that will connect to your laptops vga port.

If the display does not immediately show up, then you will have to hit the FN (Function key)+(F1 thru F12) to show the image. Press and Hold the FN key then hit the correct F1 thru F12 key. The correct F1 thru F12 key will have either CRT/LCD written on it or it will have a display icon on it.

If the image displays correctly on your external monitor, then you will need to replace your lcd screen.

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.

I have a 4 year old 40" Samsung 1080p lcd tv. The problem I am experiencing is that when I turn on the tv the picture initially is separated into 4 section horizontally. The top section is ok, the other 3...

I have a 46" Sanyo LCD TV with a similar problem. The top 4th has intermittent vertical lines and then occassionally the whole left side goes dark. There are 4 distinct sections like yours. The top section usually messes up most of the time with the other 3 just happening occasioally. I found the by tapping on the left side of the frame or squeezing the left side of the frame that it will normally start working for a while. I have been doing all kinds of research and can only find people with the same problem but not solutions. Since there is so many people with this problem I am seriously considering spending the money to slowly replace parts until I can find the cause. If tapping on the frame or squeezing on the frame or lightly pushing on the screen seems to work please let me know so when I get deeper into my TV it will help me know more what to do. You can email me at I'm afraid it is going to be the screen. JR

My screen is blue when ever i change my batteries, So I Press the 2nd button and make it lighter. But the pixels dont lighten all the way And when i go to some type of menu like for Zoom, there are...

Try to reset everything to see if that helps. If it doesn't , you can try to upgrade your operating system on the calculator to see if that helps to make it go away.
If that doesn't help try this:
"Remove one of the AAA batteries. Press and hold the [CLEAR] key. While holding [CLEAR], reinsert the AAA battery and then turn the calculator on. The calculator should display the message "RAM Cleared". Release the [CLEAR] key and then press it one more time to remove the message."
Let me know how it goes.

There are a lot of vertical multicoloured lines and 2 grey horizontal lines across my LCD screen and i wondered how i could fix it? Or do I need to have it replaced completely?

HI there,

Before you do anything else, using your own (or a friend's) external monitor, connect your laptop to the monitor and see if the display looks the same as your laptop dos. Sometimes, once the cable is attached, you have to look up along the top of the keyboard at the F keys and see if one looks like a symbol for a monitor. If it does, you need to hold down th fn key and then press that F key to transfer the display signal.

If the external monitor shows a regular display of your laptop's screen, then you know that the problem is either the Screen Inverter, or LCD. As a laptop repair specialist, I always replace both because the inverter is right below the LCD panel behind the "frame" that goes around your LCD (screen).

If the external monitor looks exactly the same as your laptop screen with the same problem, then you know that the Video chip or card on the motherboard is about to fail and needs to be replaced. You then have the choice of replacing the entire motherboard or sending the laptop to a company that specializes in motherboard repair. Many can be found on eBay (I use them myself if the Video chip is soldered to the motherboard).

If the video chip is not soldered, it alone can be replaced. Some of them can be very expensive, all depending on your laptop model.

By going by the above diagnostic method and doing a little research, you'll be well enough informed to make the right decision for your own circumstances. I'll cast my vote that it's only the screen. :)

Good Luck

Horizontal Lines on Casio TK-2700

That's strange. Try a flag clear first:

Turn key to PROGRAM mode.
Turn power off at wall.
Hold RECEIPT FEED down - keep your finger on it.
Turn power on at wall.
Wait 5 seconds, then let go of RECEIPT FEED.
You should see "FFFFFFFFFF" on display.

4.14.1 Understanding Viewing Features
Your LCD HDTV features four viewing modes and Picture-In-Picture (PIP)/Picture-by-Picture (POP) mode.
You can switch viewing modes using the remote control.
4.14.2 Viewing Modes
Normal Mode
The original 4:3 aspect ratio (1.33:1 source) is preserved, so black bars are
added to the left and right of the display image. Standard TV broadcasts are
displayed with a 4:3 Aspect Ratio. Movies in 4:3 Aspect Ratio may be referred
to as pan-and-scan or full frame. These movies were originally filmed in 16:9
(widescreen), and then modified to fit a traditional TV screen (4:3).
Wide Mode
When watching a standard broadcast or full-frame movie in this mode,
the display image is stretched proportionately to fill the TV screen.
When watching a widescreen (1.78:1 source) program or movie, the
display image fills the TV screen. If you are watching a widescreen
(1.85:1 or 2.35:1 source) program or movie, there will still be black
bars at the top and bottom.
Zoom Mode
When watching a widescreen (1.78:1, 1.85:1, or 2.35:1 source)
program or movie, the display image is zoomed proportionally to fill the
width of the screen. The top and bottom are cut off to remove most of
the source material’s black bars. This mode is good for programs or
movies with sub-titles.
Panoramic Mode
When watching a standard broadcast or full frame movie in this mode,
the 4:3 Aspect Ratio (1.33:1 source) display image is stretched
horizontally on the left and right sides to fill the TV screen. The center
of the image is not stretched.

Note: Viewing modes are saved based on input. For example, you lasted watched a DVD in widescreen
mode and then watched TV in standard mode. When you switch back to DVD input, the viewing mode
will return to widescreen.
