Hello, today I just dropped my 720SW (1st time). It only fell about 2-3 ft. Unfortunately, after the drop when I turn on the camera, the screen only shows multicolored vertical lines. I can still take pictures if I point & guess method and the pictures are still pretty good, but I can't see what I am viewing on my LCD. I bought this camera a year and a half ago and it seems it's out of warranty. Can you recommend how I can fix the display myself? If not, do you know where I can download a service manual for this camera? Any help would be great.

6 year old PC today. not that old. pretty new'ish. wow , you said. this. run with the large battery out first? run on AC pack only first? so the PC can have full power and run best , first?> does the external screen fail, you did not say! no photos of screen posted. what did the VGA port do, unstated, only you can login to windows stated, but what about lines. when did Pc last run perfectly. did you drop the PC, or hit the screen? did you try flex the screen with 2 hands and see if the LINES change, if yes, bad screen.
did buy this PC like this, Bad,?
Seems (me blind) like a bad LCD (damage or cables) if mobility is not needed run external screen for ever. most times a used VGA monitor for $40 is way way cheaper than fixing any old laptop, for $200 parts and labor. see? and econ 101 solution.
Vertical lines are usually caused by 2 things, either your graphics card
is going bad or your screen is going bad. How you check if it is
your graphics card is by plugging it into an external monitor (if you have one). If the lines still appear on the external monitor then you know its the graphics card going bad, which isn't probably worth fixing these days if you take into account how must laptop pricing has dropped. I hope this helps.
this sounds like a scan board gone ,, if you check ebay youll see two things,
1, other tvs for sale with the same fault (It might give you a clue to the fault ie , which board )
2, the same tv as yours with a broken screen ,
i dont know how good you are with taking things to bits but i personally would buy the tv with the broken screen and start swapping over the internal boards ?
Have you checked your home insurance policy for broken tv,s
it may have fell of its stand when you were'nt looking?
Without a second thought, send it back.
When you say the monitor has not be dropped, wht you are really saying is it has not been dropped by you.
There were alot of hands involved in getting it from the production line to your house.
At any stage it could have been dropped or given some form of impact (normally in transit)
That fault is in the panel itself and cannot be fixed.
