Screen only showing vertical lines after being dropped

I dropped my laptop and since the sceen has only vertical lines of color, no horizontal. The screen has worked properly only one time since, the next time I started the laptop it went back to just vertical lines. I can connect the laptop to a external monitor and it will work. Is there maybe a connection loose to the screen, or what?

The damage could be either in the LCD screen or the connection cable. Open the screen assembly and check the connection cable first.
In case it doesn't work you can find replacement LCD screens here.

HOW TO FIX A SAMSUNG LED TV MODEL UN46B7100WFXZA?


At least you have raster - but the picture is not filling the screen. U need to find out which board on set is responsible for the horizontal deflection of signals and replace it. On older sets there was a horizontal output section that took care of this.
Check with Google and then look for the part number on line after you identify the board part number. Often you can get the boards on the cheap via ebay for sets that are parted out. Look for the set on ebay - often they have sets and parts!

Dell Latitude D505 half of screen is black with colored vertical lines.


Sounds like you have a section of dead pixels. This can happen if the laptop has been dropped a lot or stepped on or some type of impact on the laptop. This is a hardware issue. You will need to have the screen replaced. In my opinion, by the age of the laptop, its better off getting a new one.

window, the theme might not be set to Windows Vista, the color scheme might not be set to Windows Aero, or the computer might not meet the minimum hardware requirements for running Windows Aero. For more information, see Troubleshoot problems with Windows Aero.

Horizontal white lines 27A43.


You have some bad capacitors. They are located very near and next to your vertical IC. I would guess you would have to replace maybe four of these! Thanks for asking!

I have a horizontal color line across the screen...have sound .This is on Video 1


If you are comfortable working inside the set and can solder, try resoldering both the vertical IC and the input jack connections. The vertical IC will be a small flat IC attached to a heatsink with about 9-11 pins. It will be marked LA7837 or something similar.

Let me know the results.
