From your description, its clear that there is an internal connection issue between the LCD screen and system board. Recommended to contact nearest Service Center or if the notebook is in Warranty, please contact Dell Support.

What is happening to my TV? It's as though a red blotchy haze appears in the left side of the picture. I'm so sad!


What kind of TV is it? In the old days of CRT TVs if you put a strong magnet next to the screen, it slightly magnetizes the screen and corrupts the picture. Many TVs had built in "Degause" ability so look in the manual or download the manual to check.

If it is a LCD it could be damage to the screen. Many LCDs will distort the picture when pressure is applied to the LCD screen. This is usually not fixable except to replace the screen. If the LCD screen is being twisted in some way, like a warped cabinet or something pushing on it, that MIGHT be fixed. Remove the pressure if possible and it might help.

I have a red dot on the screen. I tink its a dead pixel? Can this be repaired?


Hi!
There are 2 ways you can try to fix dead pixel: Try online tool like http://www.jscreenfix.com/basic.php
OR
Try this quick guide to fix dead pixels
  1. Turn off your monitor.
  2. Get yourself a damp cloth, so that you won't scratch the screen.
  3. Apply pressure to the area where the stuck pixel is. Try not to put pressure anywhere else, as this may trigger the creation of more stuck pixels.
  4. While applying pressure, turn on your computer and screen.
  5. Remove pressure and the stuck pixel should be gone.
If none of these works, than you can't do anything with it.
Hope it helps

My acer aspire notebook is only showing the bottom half of the screen, the top half is white


Grab your screen...right hand on top left hand on bottom. Apply opposite force and attempt to twist screen. If it corrects itself, gets better, gets worse etc...screen is getting ready to be totally shot. Been working on this LCD now for 6 months, just have to twist it here and there to get it to stop turning white. If it does nothing, it's shot. You have to get replacement screen. They are inexpensive and relatively easy to replace.

PSP Screen goes dim, gets bright when unit is twisted


Sorted it by bodgying with a piece of cardboard to apply pressure to the button bar.

A solution, crude, but a solution none the less.

Screen gets blurred and comes back after applying pressure on LCD


from your description, it appeas to be an issue with the LCD since applying pressure has effect on it. I would advise to check with compaq for warranty repairs if you still have one active. The LCD may have to be replaced for this situation. You can try to use an external monitor to check if the video controller actually works properly

I have a HP Pavillion TX 1000. Did everyone heard


It is highly improbable that heat from the CPU can crack a LCD screen. Even if the fan was faulty the CPU would have shutdown (thermal overload) before it would affect the LCD screen. If you apply pressure to the face of the LCD screen or twist the screen or impact the screen with a hard object, any of these will cause the LCD screen to crack.

Only have half screen on my Dell Inspiron 1501


What your describing is a failure of the LCD or possibly the inverter cable connection to the LCD. Most likely an LCD replacement will be required.

LCDs run around $150 on Ebay

Monitor problem


Sounds like a bad lcd.... any time you get vertical or horizontal lines, usually, the lcd needs to be replaced.

If you flex the screen a little, does it change? Don't use alot of force, just grab the laptop lid from both side and tweak it a little to see if the lines change or go away.

What make and model is this?

Vertical green line on screen


If your set is a plasma, this can be one of two problems : either there is a loose connection (one of many, many connections) between the plasma screen and the driver board, or one of the transistor devices has blown. Try GENTLY applying pressure to the opposite ends of the TV to give it a subtle "twist" (please be careful!). Sometimes moving the set to a different location will produce the same effect. If it's still under warranty, call your dealer. Vertical stripes are a common fault with plasma technology I'm afraid! :-( Next time, go for LCD!
