1 vertical line going down the notebook LCD

I have a notebook with a line going vertically down the LCD. I can change the color of the line from red to yellow to totally gone if I kind of twist the monitor from the top right corner. I have hooked it up to an external monitor and there is no line. I have also booted into safe mode and the line is still there on the notebook. I think there might be a short in the wiring somewhere, any ideas out there??? vertical lines on lcd. increasing

Re: 1 vertical line going down the notebook LCD

Some of the many connections to the TFT screen panel matrix itself have have either been damaged or have decayed. These tiny connections are bonded along the edges of panel and are not viably serviceable. The most common causes are impact, stress (twisting) and condensation/moisture ingress. A replacement screen panel is needed.

The only other possibility is that the data cable on the left backside of the lcd panel may be loose at the socket or on the motherboard. 9 times out of 10 though, it is the lcd panel that it failing.
