If your laptop is out of warranty, then try dis-assembling your laptop on the lcd part by using precision screws/flat head drivers. Just look for a little space/on corners to pop it open after removing the screws. Then just reseat the cable connecting from the motherboard to the lcd. Then try to see if the vertical line is still present.

My ASUS laptop doesn't boot and displays vertical lines when plugged in


Try pressing in near the bottom of the screen near the battery, you should be able to make if flicker and come back to normal, even if you have to keep it pressed in. I have the exact same problem on my U31F.
It's 95% a loose connector inside the screen, or near the hinges.
I'm trying to figure out how to approach it myself, but will probably end up taking to asus for them to fiddle with.

My compaq presario m2000 lcd screen have vertical lines in different colors, how can i remove this vertical lines?


Take out battery from laptop and disconnect power cable. Keep the power button pressed for 30 seconds and then plug the power cable. This will remove static charge from laptop and should resolve the display issue,

There are multi colored vertical lines on LCD Screen going to a total black screen. Laptop connected is to an external monitor = normal display on the external monitor I removed and reinsert the video...


Unfortunately, you're not going to be able to get a new cable as Toshiba will not sell OEM replacement parts to anyone but an authorized repair center.

This may just as likely be a problem with the sockets/plugs as with the cable itself, as they are rather fragile. It may be worth spending a few bucks for a used cable just to see if it will solve your problem. Also be sure that the thin plastic shim found on the top of most of these cable ends is still there, as they can come off rather easily, and the lack of it will cause a poor connection.

Your other alternatives are (1) Toshiba repair center, or (2) using the external monitor.

Hope that's helpful.

Thin blue line on my screen


Put a hand on each side of the screen and torque the screen in opposite directions so you give it a slight twist. Does the line disappear or get worse? If it does, then the cable is not seating well in the back of the panel. Now that maybe a bad cable or a bad socket. If the line stays regardless and doesn't change, then most likely the panel is failing. Vertical lines on a panel are usually indicative of a failing panel.

Display has vertical white lines. Hook up a external flat screen and it works fine . Toshib Qosmio g25


this indicates you have a bad screen, and if you press around on the back (top) of the computer display the lines will disappear until you take your hands off the area effected, and the screen needs to be replaced.

Five vertical lines have appeared (one at a time over a 8 week


It sounds like the flex ribbon cable has become loose from the connector on the motherboard. You might just try pressing firmly on the middle top of the keyboard or near where the hinge is located to see if the lines go away. If they don't then you might have to disassemble the Lifebook just enough to get access to this cable and see if it is loose.

Sounds like a hardware problem. You should probably return it as soon as possible.

Dead Vertical Screen X noteboo-LG Brand


If there are any horizontal or vertical lines in the display and you are able to get some picture try checking the lcd inverter located on the bottom of the display screen. In some cases, the screen goes black.Its easily accessible from taking off the bezel around the display. If needed you can recommend a tech to help install. I had a laptop that had the same problem and I touched the inverter and the lines disappeared. Sometimes the display or inverter has a poor connection from the lid opening and closing but that's not always the case.

A follow-up on my Dell vertical lines issues


I understand that it seems odd that sometimes they disappear.
I have a vertical line on one of my laptops right now that it takes about 3 seconds before it appears on the screen but once it's there. It's there.

I think it has to "warm up" before it comes back.
I used to do Technical support for a company that produced computers with 5inch wide screens, and everytime something with a line was mentioned, "Fix display cable" was the reason.
Because everytime you pushed the screen up to see the keyboard the line disappeared (because the display cable moved) But I digress.
All I'm certain of is that if you change the display cable this will be fixed.

Gateway laptop vertical dotted lines across the screen


Sounds like a problem with the LCD assembly or cable. You may want to reseat the LCD cable at the LCD end. It could be a loose internal connector in the LCD assembly.
