New LCD SCreen problem

My old XGA LCD quit working. the only cheap one i could find online was SXGA, but after the install it looks exremely washed out, like every other vertical pixle line is white and not working. I was thinking i might need a new driver to run it or something.

I am no expert on this issue, but i am not sure you can install a SXGA resolution screen into a formally XGA laptop. Never tried that before. I don't believe that it will work CORRECTLY. As you have stated. Is there anyway you can send it back and get a XGA one instead and solve your problem? Keep me posted.. I am curious about this... THANK YOU ...GURU JAY

The problem is the LCD flex cable. You need an SXGA flex cable for an SXGA LCD. The old XGA cable isn't able to handle the resolution properly. Replace the cable with an SXGA cable and you will have solved your problem. Unfortunately the SXGA flex cables that are available are shorter than the stock XGA cable that ships with the Inspiron 1150. In particular SXGA cables for the Inspiron 5150 are about an inch too short. If you cut a few holes in the LCD housing and the keyboard housing you can reroute the cable so that it reaches the motherboard but it still is tight and pulls against the LCD housing when you close the screen.

I just ran into this myself. The problem is your LCD flex cable. You must have an SXGA flex cable for an SXGA screen; with the old XGA cable you get lines. Unfortunately the only SXGA cable I could find for the 1150 is about an inch shorter than the original XGA cable so it didn't reach the motherboard plug. After cutting out a piece of the LCD housing I got it to reach but it still is tight and pulls on the housing when the screen is closed....

I have a Toshiba 6100 when I turn it on I get the following error code S-L-S-S-L-L-S-S FROM THE POWER LIGHT .WHAT DOES IT MEAN? Where can I find a list of all these codes

Sounds like a bad motherboard to me - it's a general weakness of this series laptop: too much case flex, and not enough connectors between the MB/power board. These things are cheap on eBay, so if it was up to me, I'd replace it. Target price? $30-$40.

White screen on C840

Hi There,

A white screen is almost always the symptom of a failed LCD. The easiest way to check this is to connect the laptop to an external monitor. If it displays normally there, you've got your diagnosis, order and install new LCD. If the white screen is on both the external and the laptop monitor, the problem is on the motherboard and almost certainly the video processor/controller chip. That's when you have to decide whether to send the laptop to a motherboard repair facility (many on eBay are quite good), comparing their prices to acquiring a different used/new laptop.

If you are capable of replacing a motherboard yourself, you can look for replacement mobos online. Sometimes these can be reasonably priced or so incredibly expensive that it defies reason why they are even trying to sell them.

Good Luck

My LCD has hizontal lines appearing. But if I press the side of the mounting in goes back to normal. Seems like something is loose inside, what could I possibly do? Thanks!

Warning: the LCD screen can be easily damaged if you open it up. If you do something wrong the screen might become completely unusable and you’ll have to buy a new screen. It’s very expensive. Think twice before you decide opening the screen. Continue at your own risk.
  1. First of all remove the battery from the notebook.
  2. Lift up rubber screw seals and remove all screws.
  3. Carefully separate the screen bezel from the LCD cover and remove the bezel.
  4. Remove the screws from the front and from both sides.
  5. Carefully remove the LCD screen from the cover and place it on the notebook base. Disconnect the video cable and the inverter board cable.
  6. Disconnect the screen cable and remove the inverter board by removing both screws holding it.
  7. Clean the terminals then reattach the cables firmly.
