Problem with LCD

I'm having this strange problem with my LCD screen.Some permanent dotted lines have appeared on my screen from top to bottom. First there were just two lines,but steadily the number has been increasing(now there are 9).They are of different colours and once a line appears it stays.Also there is no fixed interval at which these lines are increasing..its pretty random.they appear to be moving dotted lines..ive been told i might need to replace the there any solution...thanks in advance

Re: problem with LCD

Indeed offered solution is most likely correct. However I can suggest you to ensure if dots/lines appear even before windows screen comes. If yes thats the conclusion that your LCD Module has dead pixels or internal connectors has connectivity issue. Consult a local Hands on technician. LCD module might be costly you can always use an external monitor with your laptop.
Good luck. Happy new year.

Dotted lines on laptop screen

This not good, hook a spare monitor to the video output usually on the back, if picture okay! the LCD panel on the laptop will need to be replaced. But if both show the same symptom the video graphics card is bad normally built into the motherboard.

hi murdockthefi

apparently these are dead pixel lines. it appeared as the pixels on the LCD screen of the laptop has already died down or is not anymore working as it should. it would only be resolved with replacing the LCD panel itself.

When you get vertical lines from the top of the screen to the bottom of the screen, it means you have bad LCD panel, you need the new one. It will get worst with more lines as time goes by.

Move the screen around while on, do the lines disappear when you hold it in certain positions? If so, your LCD needs to be replace. If the lines don't disappear when bending the screen, it could be a broken motherboard as well. Youcan try to open the laptop and check the dc connection. There is a Laptop Repair Guide that shows you how to take apart a laptop, the sony may be made in a similar way. Sony Repair NYC

My screen on my asus 900 has two lines going across the bottom of the screen.

i may be incorrect, but i believe those lines are dead pixels, basically, they're lines of pixels (or dots) on the screen, that have become permanently one color, usually white or black

Sounds like a problem with the LCD assembly or cable. You may want to reseat the LCD cable at the LCD end. It could be a loose internal connector in the LCD assembly.
