HP Pavillion zd8000 LCD problems

Hello dear helpers!!! I really appritiate your WORK!!! Recently I / my laptop got into trouble with it's LCD display... It began with exactly half of the display (right side). the picture on that half began to (let's say) shimmer a little bit. It was about 4 weeks ago, I first noticed that. This occurs every once in a while since then. And three days ago my computer was overheating once during a game. It switched of automatically. I left it for about 30 min to cool down . When i started it again, i noticed a tiny (1 or maybe 2 pixels in width) white line through the whole display vertically. Yesterday it got two new "friends", about 1 inch between each. so there are 3 now. Any Idea what's going on??? Is this possible to solve?

Thank you very much in advance!!!

I had the same happen to me.. it started with one white vertical line.. then got the whole rainbow (red, green, blue).. Solution: Try connecting an external monitor.. if there is no problems, then it's not the video card or chipset.. it's going to be the lcd.. you can get it on ebay for about $200.. hope this helps..

I have a hp pavillion zd8000 laptop and the plastic on the left hand side of the draw that opens to insert cd's to download is missing-do i need to buy new one as i open it with a pin.

It would be preferable to replace it, of course...but it isn't really required if you're just careful. You would need to contact HP direct in order to TRY to get the part...they generally won't sell repair parts to individuals, but only to authorized repair centers.

Hope that's helpful.

Hp pavillion zd8000 monitor has 37 vertical lines

Interesting that you counted them!
If you haven't tried to reinstall the video drivers, do that.
If that doesn't work, hook up an external monitor to see if the display is OK on that.
If it is, then your LCD screen has a problem and will need to be replaced.

HP Pavillion ZD8000 display problem

Before you invest any further, try the lcd inverter I have seen them for real cheap. If you take off your bezel cover underneath the display you'll find the inverter9147480.jpg or if necessary you can get a tech to help install. Usually theres a series of beeps when you get a blank screen. Hp pavilion laptops also get hot on the keyboard after a while from long term use and zd 8000 came out about 4 years ago so the display should be a pretty good looking glossy screen. Those are nice laptops to work with by the way.

Sounds like the lcd itself, or the ribbon cable needs to be replaced.
I'd try that first.
Good luck
