The symptoms you describe can be a damaged LCD, but they can also be caused by a loose LCD connector. If you are comfortable opening the laptop case, it would be wise to check this first. Sony uses standard Torx screws, if you buy the right size, taking it apart is not too difficult. Just do not FORCE anything. Be very patient, careful and gentle. Work in a space where you can capture any parts that drop and organize all the screws/parts in the same pattern they were removed. Then you find the ribbon connector (usually brownish-orange in color) and check the seating at both ends. If the laptop was OPEN, meaning the lid/LCD was open when the laptop was dropped, this ribbon might even be torn, and need replacing.

I dropped my laptop, Vaio VGN-NR185E, and the screen is turning blue with the white colors, so if there's a blank page it's blue instead of white, I believe it's the inverter or maybe a loose wire, What do...


If the unit was dropped, it could be that a wire /cable came loose,but it most likely is the LCD screen. Was the unit dropped on one edge of the unit or did it land flat?

on edge: probably the LCD screen
flat: loose cable or inverter

Best guess....without seeing unit.

The pixels inside of the LCD are going bad. Your screen is going to need to be replaced. When pixels in screens go bad it usually turns colors or gets fuzzy after it heats up.

Coloured vertical lines down lcd screen


To isolate the issue, i strongly recommend to connect the notebook to the external monitor by VGA port which had BLUE colored on the notebook. So that if it is normal then you need to confirm the issue is with the LCD display.
