My toshiba L35-S2161 the monitor only displays lines in colors, what to do to fix it


Since you diagnosed by using an external VGA monitor, you now know the fault lies in either the Video Cable, or the Display Assembly.

Your graphics chipset is good.
(Also known as GPU. Graphics Processing Unit )


A) Video Cable:
(Toshiba = LCD FL Cable )

See if the connections are good. Check the motherboard side connection of the Video Cable, AND the LCD screen side connection.

A loose connection can do this.

1) http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-L35/taking-apart-laptop-1.htm

2) http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-L35/remove-notebook-screen.htm

(On both links above you can click on the photos to enlarge )

Observe the sheath of the Video Cable for obvious signs of damage.
If the cable looks pinched, stretched, or torn, the tiny wires inside the cable may be damaged also.

Best method is to remove the Video Cable, and perform a continuity test of the wires inside the cable, with a multimeter.
(An economical unit can be purchased for around $8 to $12.
Analog or digital is fine )

B) Display Assembly:

Video Cable checks out OK;

1) Check the connections to the screen Inverter board.
Make sure they are tight. Make sure the Inverter board does not appear to be damaged.

2) Screen Inverter board:

Primer;
An LCD screen does not produce light. It needs an additional light source.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LCD_screen

A Backlight is the additional light source.
A Backlight is usually a CCFL, or a series of LED lights.

The Toshiba Satellite L35-S2161 Notebook PC, uses a CCFL for a Backlight. (Uses 1 CCFL)

CCFL stands for Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp
Similar to Fluorescent lighting used in homes, and businesses, but on a MUCH smaller scale.

(Average size is 2mm Thick, and is close to the width of the LCD screen in question, Long )

A screen Inverter converts the power (Electricity) from the laptop, for the Backlight and LCD screen.

It is located behind the Display Mask, (Display Bezel), and mounted towards the bottom of the LCD screen.

http://www.zkarlo.com/selected-zkarlo-part/inverter-board-p2215.php

A bad screen Inverter usually causes a garbled display, or doesn't light the Backlight up.

To test a screen Inverter you need a sensitive multimeter, or use a spare Backlight bulb that is known to be good.

Bulb lights up the Inverter is good, the Backlight in the LCD screen assembly, is bad.

[ The LCD screen is composed of layers. These layers are held in place by a metal Screen Frame. {Resembles a picture frame }

The Screen Frame comes apart.

Screws are removed, and the Screen Frame comes apart in four pieces, (Four sides), or the Screen Frame comes apart in two pieces as an Upper half, and Lower half.

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-L35/big/satellite-L35-screen-08.jpg

The Backlight bulb is taped to one side of the LCD screen layers, and is under that side of the Screen Frame.

The LCD screen layers MUST be kept aligned, as they were from the factory. For this reason alone, it is tedious for an experienced technician, and is usually not done at the consumer, or DIY level.

Spilt coffee over my laptop


Well I hate to say it but coffee ruins laptops. The acid in the coffee melts the solder contacts on the motherboard, killing it.

Toshiba M35 S359 Laptop screen brightness


Hello,

you can try windows up date, or check the control panel, locate display and check the Brightness settings.

It is also possible that part of your screen bulb is dead, that's why one part is dimmer.

But there is no drivers that will make your screen bright.

Take care.

Water damage/stains possible on backlight panel behind LCD panel. I've seen this more on laptops. Does it look like brighter white spots? You might have to take it in to have it professionally cleaned.

Blue Vertical Line


It is sounding like when the laptop is turned on and heats up a bit, the line appears? Sounds like one of the panels is going bad or atleast has developed a problem. below are some tricks you can try to lessen the annoyance of the line. Dual-Scan STN displays are composed of 2 panels behind a single protective panel or screen. Because you are looking through the protective screen the display appears to be one large panel even though it is not. There is a physical separation line (gap) at the point where the two panels meet. When the computer is on and being viewed it is not unusual to see the visible separation line with the Dual-Scan STN displays. The line, actually the fine gap between the display panels, appears because the color and light pixels cannot run along the very outside edges of the panels. This line (gap) between the panels can be seen as a fine gray line and is most noticeable when viewing on a screen with a white or light background. Note the line may not be as noticeable when the screen is displaying certain colors or darker backgrounds. SUGGESTIONS: It is not possible to completely eliminate the line but there are some things you can try to reduce it's visibility. 1) Lower the display brightness/contrast. The brighter the backlight the more noticeable the line. 2) Use Wallpapers and Screen savers that use darker colors. 3) In the Control Panel/Display applet under appearance try different combinations of color schemes for your Window and Background choice Let me know what happens. Good Luck, Tim
