Re: Toshibsa Satelite P30 Laptop

That usually means that the polished silicon plates no longer make good contact with the LCD glass. It is rare you can fix this yourself. But you can remove the LCD by removing any small covers or rubber feet from screen side of the lid.Power off machine before going further. From there remove all the screws and remove them. Just remove the screen gently and look behind it and you will see printed barcodes with numbers. One of them is a part number. Ebay that number and find out how much you can get one for. Be sure the sell has a good rep and a return policy. Order one in and replace it yourself. Or take the parts you have and a repair shop may not charge much to replace the screen you have.

email me if you need any more assistance or reassembly.

Good Evening, I have a HP laptop and it has a black line about 1 inch wide running vertically on the screen

To me this sounds like there is a problem with the LCD flat ribbon cable which connects the motherboard/mainboard of the laptop to the LCD screen. Does this vertical line always appear regardless whether you are in Windows? If so, then the cable
is either slightly loose or is somehow being pinched by the laptop hinge. Tap or press in the area above your keyboard to see if this goes away. If not, you may have to open up your machine and inspect the LCD cable.

Vertical lines approx 2"wide appear on screen and remain after re

Your lcd is going out. Either that or your video card.

You can verify this by hooking up an external monitor to your laptop. If you see lines or distortion on the external it's the video card ( GPU ).

If you don't, it's probably the lcd.

90% of the time it's the lcd.

Easiest and cheapest way to fix it is to purchase an lcd from ebay and then just swap them.

Let me know if you need any more help.

Best of luck!

I have a very thin bright green vertical line on my laptop screen

If it is always there, then you are going to need a new monitor. If it comes and goes then it could be drivers or hardware.
