Hp pavilion dv5000 laptop screen distortion

My laptop screen appears to have a short somewhere. Occasionally the screen becomes scrambled, but swiveling the top at the hinge helps. Sometimes I have to put pressure at the hinge by holding the screen itself.
How can I resolve this?

    My screen does the same thing. The lower half becomes fuzzy and gradually worsens. It is relieved by finger-point pressure directly to the screen. Have you found out anything that helped?

    mines exactly the same.. if anyone knows the issue please let us know.

    mine does the same thing, any solutions? it is getting worse and harder to fix now....

    Yep - same issue. Began a few weeks ago. I noticed that if the screen is leading towards me rather than away (once I get the screen back to normal), then it never happens. But once it moves back again, the lower portion becomes a frozen image. HP needs to recall this and fix it.

    Same problem. I've temporarily fixed it by jamming a folded index card between the screen and the supporting frame. I have opened up the back, but did not notice any loose connections--so I'm not convinced it is a short, rather some faulty component.

    Same here. Pressure on the screen temporarily "fixes" the problem, but it's frustrating to work or surf with a partial screen. On mine, it's the lower third that freezes/distorts. I'm tempted to order a replacement screen, but I have a feeling that might not fix the problem. Any other ideas?

    Yeah, I have a similar problem where there will be lines that form horizontally across the screen, but if I move the screen leaning towards me, it temporarily goes away. I had it in to be fixed once, and it didn't work.

    Oh my god, and I thought I was the only one with this problem. My HP Pavilion dv5111eu has started having vertical white, scrambled lines across the display. It did help for a while, when I just folded the screen up and down a few times, but now the problem is persisting. I've also noticed that there's a crack in the plastic back cover of my screen, just where the left hinge is supposed to be, and when I press upon the crack, the lines seem to lose their intensity, but then come back on. Is this the result of a faulty part or sth - can I fix i (and is it even worth it)?

  • Anonymous Mar 31, 2009

    I also have this problem but its been going on for 2 months now, and now I cant even use the screen. I ve attached a different monitor to the laptop but its a pain. I think i might try to get it repaired.

Same here. However mine is a toshiba satellite. Starts fine but after a minute or two its like watching tv in the 60s all sorts of white lines distort the screen. So i took the back off and removed all of the screws for the sceen around the top and bottom. Just the ones that mount it to the cover. By applying pressure to certain parts i managed to narrow it down and after about 10 attempts at ptting it all back together i did it with 2 screw missing in the top left hand corner and low and behold it seems to work fine. I am thinking that over time maybe some of the mouldings expand and maybe apply pressure onto the back of the screen and start to cause problems. I am not saying this is a cure for all but it certainly worked for me. Good Luck.

    Viewable onscreen image on my HP DV5000 would vary from upper third, upper two-thirds, sometimes full screen, I opened lcd portion and checked all connections..all were okay. I checked screen to motherboard wiring harness and discovered insulation on various wires inside of harness completely missing..resulting in screen signals shorting out.

Video Scrambles After Loading Screens


Sometimes things like this are much simpler than they seem, but since the problem appears so severe, it freaks you out. I'm assuming since you didn't state it that you haven't tried many if any fixes at all. So I will start with one of the most basic ones.

First try checking the settings on the video options for your video card... "display options" or the geforce console.. if you are using anti aliasing... what setting is it on? 2x? 3x? Other than that, try using the lowest video settings for the game and see if it still does the same distortions/freezing. if not, your settings may have just been too high, gradulally ease them up to the highest setting you can without it having problems during loading.

If none of that works.. try the following options.

1. Try re-installing the games themselves.
2. Try rolling back your video driver.
3. Try updating your video driver to the newest possible version.

I think your problem is LCD. To make sure, try entering the bios when your pc starts. You can enter bios by pressing F10. If within the bios setup utility, your problem remains same then yoy need to change the LCD.
