Question about IBM ThinkPad T30 2366 Notebook

Matrix Style Lines

I Tried to connect an external monitor, on boot, matrix like grid lines appeared still, (on the external monitor). This means it must be something inside the laptop?

Any ideas?
This is my only real source of work.
Right now i'm using my home made server to communicate with the the world which isn't the best solution.

Yes, this could be a property value set in your display. Go to Control Panel, Display and hunt through your display adapter's advanced settings and see if there is a check box for display grid and turn that off.

It sounsd like your GPU may be BGA chip and would require a re-flow/re-ball if your laptop shows graphical distortion on both monitors.

However I would first try taking the laptop apart again and double check you have connected everything properly.

MONITOR HD2200. I TURN IT ON AND THE SCREEN GOES WHITE THEN A FEW VERTICAL COLOR LINES APPEARS AND AFTER A FEW SECONDS IT GOES BLACK.


Hello,

IF YOU HAVE A SOLID BLACK LINE RUNNING VERTICALLY THEN YOU HAVE A FAULTY MATRIX INVERTER. IF CENTRAL THE MAIN VERTICAL INVERTER NEEDS CHANGED. LEFT = LEFT VERTICAL INVERTER RIGHT=RIGHT.........

ANOTHER WAY TO GET THIS FAULT IS WORN OR DAMAGED RIBBON/PLASTIC GOING FROM THE SCREEN MATRIX TO THE INVERTER

Hope this will help out in solving the problem....

BLACK LINE on screen and see-through Pink Bar!


disconnect all the cables except the power cable and then turn the monitor on you would see a test screen if it still happens your monitor is faulty and better buy a new one as repairing is usually expensive .

Toshiba Satellite P105-S6124 Screen lines


Are these lines on the screen during the whole boot process? If so then the screen cpu and/or the video cpu has gone bad. Connect an external monitor. If the picture is clear, no lines, then the problem is the LCD screen. If the lines appear on the external monitor during the boot process then the mother board will need replacement.

Good Luck

Colored lines on screen


This may be caused by the death of a display driver circuit and these might be integrated with the display itself. 
The pixels on the screen are controlled by an X-Y matrix and the matrix may have signal lines that are somewhat shared for different screen positions.
I doubt that this is DIY project and the failure can only be located by an equipped and trained tech.

1 vertical line going down the notebook LCD


Some of the many connections to the TFT screen panel matrix itself have have either been damaged or have decayed. These tiny connections are bonded along the edges of panel and are not viably serviceable. The most common causes are impact, stress (twisting) and condensation/moisture ingress. A replacement screen panel is needed.
