Display Problem Black turns Red

Everything that is supposed to be black on the screen becomes red. I can tilt the laptop around until it is normal again, but if it moves a bit from that position the colors shift up again. This started all of a sudden I never had this problem before.

    No, it's like a loose connection or something. Physically moving/tilting the laptop causes the change in colors.

    Hey Norco,



    I know exactly what you're talking about. I have the same problem. Did you ever resolve it?



    100% sure this is not a video setting issue. I think it's some sort of electrical grounding issue.



    I'm getting tired of twisting my machine!

    I have the same problem. Have to twist my laptop to fix it or press on the case in the middle just below the screen. Completely disassembled and reassembled my PC 3 times now but the problem persists. Really starting to get annoying. Just did it again while I typed this.

I have the same problem, blacks go to red and twisting the screen sometimes helps.

I have an Asus F3JR. My first thought was a loose connection to the display, and since twisting the screen rectifies the problem temporarily I still think its down to a loose connection. The connection in question is hard to get to in a laptop though so some experience is required to fix this problem.

I just started having the same problem. But it seems not related to shaking or moving the laptop. tried reinstalling drivers and hardware with no luck. Also tried vithob sugestion and still did not work. Even when first booting up the windows xp logo screen is all red in the background. I am thinking hardware failer but want to make sure before I start buying componets.

SOURCE: Display Problem Black turns Red

sounds like you have a loose connection ....either into the screen or into the motherboard....the connection between board and screen runs through the hinge brackets and often comes loose after machine has been opened and closed a lot.....need to be comfortable opening up laptops to check the cables as it can be tricky to get to the back of the screen where the end of the ribbon cable is..

Black screen


Start the laptop in safe mode and run System Restore
After that I will suggest you to update your drivers just go the site of your Laptop manufacture. Once there enter the model number OR service tag of the laptop then request driver (usually found in the web site's "Support Section"). There you should be able to find all the drivers for your model laptop
If this didn't help you then it seems that there is registry problem with your OS. so simply get the Intel software partner Reginout to fix all the registry issues which are causing black screen.

Hi. I have hp 6735s laptop and when I move him screen suddenly go black or in rare case white and I need to hold power button to shut down and when I turn him on everything is normal until I move him again...


Hi,

When you say you move him, do you mean lifting the unit and moving to another location or just moving the lid (changing angle of the lid/lcd)?

If changing the angle of the display gives you black/white screen, you may be having problem with the LCD cable, it might be loose or defective. But if moving the unit to another location gives you the black/white screen, one component of the unit might be loose. Either you need to properly reinsert the memory of the harddrive. If these simple steps will not resolve the issue then you might need to check the whole motherboard including the connection to the LCD.

Hope this helps.

My Toshiba Satellite laptop screen turns red frequently (I can still see the picture) until I move it back and forth to get a normal clear screen. Is this a problem? Will my screen just go out one day and...


As you said that the screen becomes normal by moving the laptop the issue could be with the connector inside the notebook. The connectors may be loose. To fix this issue your notebook needs to be repaired.

Screen fades to white, everything freezes, then returns to normal


My first thought is a video inverter.

Install an external monitor and see if the problem persists.

If it doesn't then it is the LCD on the laptop.

Good luck

God Bless

Dropped laptop, color on screen not natural


The problem could be that you jolted a heat sync or fan loose that cools the video adapter. If you power off the machine and let it sit for several minutes and then reboot and the same thing happens, its a heat issue. Laptops have the graphics card in a chip form soldered to the motherboard, thats not the issue. Undoubtedly you have jostled something loose. If in fact it is a heat issue, you can have someone take the laptop apart and reseat the heat sync or maybe check on the fan that cools the video adapter.

My acer aspire4310 notebook suddenly displays a white screen


I had the same problem but I was able to solve this problem. It was a connection problem between the lcd and the motherboard. I have bought contact spray and sprayed a little bit of it on the lcd connector. Since then everything is fine.
