Was wondering if my screen is going bad and needs to be replaced. I sometimes get black lines on the screen when I press the button to turn the screen on. Doesn't do it all the time but probably 1 out of 10 times when I press the button. Works fine when screen is lit and don't see any black lines. Only happens when screen is first activated to turn on.

Chances are, that the LCD screen is starting to bad. The screen might need to be changed. The best way to test is to connect an external monitor to it, and see if it comes up. if it does, then it is in the Video card/component, otherwise the screen will need to be replaced.
turn off laptop. press and hold on the D then press Power button. during the LCD BIST test check if the black line down right side of the screen is visible. if yes LCD needs to be replaced. if not connect your laptop to an external monitor check if the black line display appears to the ext monitor, if yes uninstall / reinstall video driver if fails replace video card or if it is built in replace motherboard.
if no ext monitor available then run PSA (press and hold Fn key then press Power button)
check if the black line is visible. Check also in BIOS is black line is visible, if yes then uninstall reinstall first the video driver if fails replace LCD.
Generally the problem is caused due bad LCD inverter cable. Kindly run the LCD diagnostics
How to Run diagnostics
1. Shut down the computer
2. Disconnect the AC adapter and Battery
3. Press the power button for 10 sec.
4. reconnect both AC adapter and battery
5. Press FN key+ power button
6. Follow the screen prompts.
If the LCD problem is shown in diagnostics your screen would have to be replaced.
When you say the buttons "sometimes" lite up, do you mean just when they feel like it or only when you power it up or off? And is it making any noise when you power it up? If they're only working when you turn it on and then they go off, then you have a firmware problem and you need to have it re-flashed.. If they turn on and stay on, and it makes noises (like you can hear the keytones when ya press them) then it has got a bad LCD and that's a pretty inexpensive fix (check Ebay for a replacement screen)
Yes worth repairing but not a crt problem. the crt's are powered by a high voltage transformer and sometimes it's caps that goes bad and in turn knocks out the crt's. but they are ok, it's in the high voltage line.
On your monitor at the bottom there is 3 buttons. The one all the way to the left is the "menu" button. The next one (going right) is the "NEGATIVE" button. The next one (going right) is the "POSITIVE" button.
You can move your screen around. First, start by pressing the menu button.Then, a menu in blue, with a bunch of little white icons will appear. Next, go over two icons by pressing the positive button twice. Then, proceed to push in the "menu" button again. A bar will appear. By pressing your negative button, your screen will move left. Pressing your positive button will make your screen move right. Adjust your screen until the black on both sides are of even proportion. Then, press the menu button to return to the orginal menu you started at. Proceed to press your positive button two more times. Then, press your menu button. Then, once again, use your positive button, and your negative button to adjust your screen to even out the black on the top and bottom.
