This will be either a loose screen connection or a failing screen. Start by checking the screen connections. It's generally the connection on the back of the screen, but go ahead and check the screen to inverter, and screen to motherboard connections also. If the connections are good, and you still have the problem, then I'm afraid screen replacement is going to be your only option.

    "I cannot get into the back of my screen as this is a laptop."



    This is just a stupid comment. I know this is a laptop, I am a professional that deals with these on a daily basis, not just some idiot that knows a little about computers and answers questions on the net, and Yes, you can get to the back of the screen. You simply need to remove the screen bezel around the screen and you will see the four screws holding the screen to the hinge assembly. The screws for the bezel are hidden under the small black rubber bumpers, and sticky tabs at the bottom, then it simply snaps off. The bezel is the plastic piece around the viewing side of the screen. Since you can squeeze the screen and it will go away, then you have a bad connection. I hope this helps you fix your problem, so at least one of us will come out good, because I'm stuck with the inappropriate you gave me.

The lower third of the screen flickers more when the computer is bumped, and frequently goes white. If I bump it or press the bezel it will mostly correct itself temporarily, but he problem never goes...


This most obviously is a loose connection,classic symptom.
on my netboook you can remove 6 rubber "bungs" then get at the 6 screws underneath to start the enquiry procedure.
After this you gently prise apart the top two plastic surrounds perhaps with a needle,carefully.

Vertical white line goning from top and bottom. Help


The screen will probably have to be replaced. Try gently squeezing around the edge of the lcd where the line is present. Sometimes this will get it going temporarily. I have even used close pins before to keep pressure on it to keep it on. A new screen can be ordered on ebay for around $100 and are fairly easy to replace. I recommend getting the exact part number on the back of the LCD before ordering.

Problem with the screen of a Dell Inspiron 1521


Hi
In your caseHi
normally with vertical stripes it can happen due to
1.a bad LCD (small little chip inside LCD and can't manual repair)
2.a loose connection cable
so here what I do is first I try to tap at the back of the LCD and see that the problem goes away or not.If yes then a loose connection.
if no what I would do here ,coz I have a spare LCD I just exchange to test it...if the problem goes away then a BAD LCD.
Incase of verticle line due to bad LCD you can't repair it trust me.All the small IC chips are blended with board and can't really be repair.More quesiton feel free to post here.
goodluck,takecare.

Yellow stripe down the screen.?


And a good evening to you!
It is possible that you have a bad LCD assembly, or possibly the LCD cable connector is loose. The only way to find out is to remove the LCD assembly from the top cover so that you can access the connector. It is located behind the LCD screen.
If you want a copy of a service manual for the disassembly process, let me know and I'll see what I can do for you.

IBM T30 Screen Problems


More likely than a cracked screen was a bad connector. Having a band (vertical or horizontal) of random lines and colrs is typical of a bad connector. Odd as it may sound, you can try to diagnose whether this is really the case by squeezing carefully (not too hard) around the edges of the screen. On many different models you will find that when you get to a certain spot and squeeze lightly the problem will change or even disappear temporarily. For the more adventruous you can also try lightly twisting the casing. I've had this work on dozens of machines with similar symptoms.

A dark large stripe on the screen which won't go away


It is definitely a screen related issue. There are 5 drivers each running a section of the screen. Obviously one is out, but that doesn't mean the others are on the way. You may be able to find a replacement screen if you'd like to attempt the replacement yourself. Otherwise you always have the option of using a service center.
