Generally these problems are related to laptop hardware, so taking it to an authorized service provider may be the only option available. Usually it will require a trip to a service center and part replacements will probably be required. If you just purchased it recently and if it's within your retailer's return policy it would be a good idea to seek a replacement.

If you can provide some more detail about the problem I might be able find a fix or at least provide some more detail. Here are some questions that might help:

1) When does it happen? Is it on start up? Does it happen randomly while using the system?
2) When did this problem start? Has it always been an issue or is it a recent occurrence?

You have to send the computer for service. There is a break on the circuit board of the screen or on the mother board, or there is a problem with one of the ribbon cables.

Using the computer like you are can make other damage, and thus increasing the cost of the repair, depending on the nature of the short or open that is occuring!

You may be lucky, and only the ribbon cable assembly has to be replaced. If it is the screen or the mother board that has to be replaced, then the cost will be high.

Laptops can have this type of problem from being handled roughly, dropping, or from a lot of opening and closing of the screen. Most of the time, these computers are very reliable and are trouble free for many years.

I have a Mitsubishi 55"


This set has a convergence problem. You should only need to replace the IC. Part is STK393-110. It sits on the middle board behind the large heatsink. Use a heat transfer compound to ensure repair lasts. If you have no experience soldering (or unsoldering) please use a professional for the work. The traces are fragile and I have fixed many mistakes local DIYers have committed. Goodluck.

My screen has shrunk down to one long strip and the page is reduced I can't read anything?


Without seeing the page, I can only assume that it has reverted to a condensed version, liberating your workspace. If you look down at the lower right hand corner of the page, you will probably notice three small diagonal lines in the very corner... grab this area with your mouse (click and hold left mouse button depressed while stretching the page to the desired dimension.
Hope this helps.

Screen lines on MacBook.


Sounds like dropped pixels.  My first guess is the computer has been dropped on its corner, with the pixel dropout radiating diagonally from the corner.
My saint bernard sat on my g3 lombard, and I have vertical pixel dropout because of it, from the top of the screen to the bottom.
And no, it is not normal for a macbook to have lines across the screen.
