Dell E4200 screen problems

My screen on a dell E4200 has started developing vertical lines - if I squeeze the screen below the lines HARD, the lines disappear temporarily. DO I need a new screen - and can I do that myself?

The screen seems rather plastic-like and flexible. Is there a better-built super lightweight laptop I should consider.

Sure there is its called a TOSHIBA

Dell is the poor mans brand and is poorly made to the poor price!

The lines are caused byt a failing Liquid crystal display gel. A new screen can be purchased from a Dell outlet. But you could be spending money on a bettr unit that is reliable and under warranty. Take a ook at the Toshiba L300 range, very affordable, losts of bells and whistles and much better quality. and about $5-600 on special for introduction to the market. These units are usually in the $900 and over range

this occurs very commonly in all LCD monitors... this is because each and every cells in the LCD monitor are energized by the vertical and horizontal electric fields placed around the frame of the monitor... if a particular field does not gives the power to the associated cells to it, then the entire line of cells will not operate and together they looks like a single line...This is what happened in your case...

My dell l e4200 has screen problem, when I boot it up nothing is showing even if I press fn-f8.


There can be several reasons this is happening. The first thing I would suggest is testing the video card by connecting an external monitor to the laptop. If that works, the cable connecting the laptop screen or screen itself may have been disconnected/damaged/gone bad. If it doesn't work, the video card may have gone bad.

Vertical lines on LCD monitor


You have capacitor problem in power supply, if many lines then replace the bigest cap and find anymore that needs replacing. Its an AC filter problem.
