Screen comes on,with many coloured lines,and after some time clicks on to good pcture.
Have checked boards for dry joints,and inspected electrolytics for bulging.
Thinking it might be a lazy crystal.
Can you suggest anything to try.
once picture appears it stays ok all day.

When this happens it is a logic board video problem. I would purchase a use logic board or a comparable laptop via eBay There are numerous laptops of your type for sale that have broken screens for a fair price.The screens are very hard to find on eBay for sale, But a good working screen is worth it's weight in gold. The random screen issue is normally caused by the logic board and not the screen.
Tap the top of the TV and if the picture comes on in full screen then it is possible that there are DRY SOLDERING points on the board.
use a good iron to touch up the soldering on the vertical and horizontal sections, the driver IC's. get help if you are not able to do the job but it seems a minor job.
right click on your desktop and click properties(XP) or screen resolution(vista/Windows 7) on xp click on settings then see if you have two displays showing, if you have click on the one that is greyed out and click on extend my desktop onto this monitor and then click make this your main monitor click apply and click ok if your laptop screen shows your desktop its all good
Most likely the Y sustain board is bad. I always replace the Y drives also as they can destroy the new Y board. The Y is the board on the left hand side and connects to the Y drive boards. I was going to say, send me a picture of the problem but you said now it is dead.
Sounds like this may be the cable between the monitor and computer. It may also be dry joints on the logik board. The board where the signal cable plugs into. This socket may have loose connections or dry solder points on the board. Hope this will help you. Please be careful when opening the screen as it can damage easily. Try refrain from handling the screen on the front. Best Wishes and Good Luck, JUS004
Please go in bios mode and check whether the lines are coming there or not.
If lines appear after some time then keep system in BIOS for that much of time and check.
IF coming then this is the issue with the screen otherwise with the system problem and graphics driver is to be reinstalled.
it would be easier to find it stripped from a damaged set on ebay. I see several there but need the part number to search of course you may purchase that and find it to be the lcd driver.hopefully not.
umm, im not trying to state the obvious but, have you checked that the colour setting is 32 bit colours (right click-properties-settings-colour quality)? also make sure that the correct drivers are installed for your monitor and GPU (graphics card). check that they are also up-to-date. also check the actual screen menu and make sure the colours are good, fidle around with them (RGB) until they are better (last resort!!!). about the printer...i have no idea!!, check out the properties when coming to print to check its not set as one colour, usually under the colour tab (for some odd reason hehe). check that the colours are equal and that certain boxes aren't ticked, i.e grayscale etc!. hope this kinda helps!
