Quick Fix Tips for your Screen
Troubleshoot Your Laptop Screen Problem
Before you decide to go ahead and outright replace yourlaptop screen, it is wise to troubleshoot the problem. While obvious damage toa screen will usually require full replacement, other types of damage that arevisible on the laptop screen may not be due to the screen itself. This is why before you replace the screen, definitely trouble shoot the problem.
Many times pixels will be damaged on your laptop making your screen very difficult to read and use. Your laptop uses LCD (liquid crystal display) to show images, these images are made from thousands of pixels (little dots). If a few pixels in one area are damaged, this can ruin your entire computing experience. In most cases, it is best to remove the entire laptop screen and replace it with a new one.
Laptop Screens with Faint Images
Laptop screens are back lit to improve visibility of your screen. However, sometimes the back light does not work making your screen extremely difficult to read. A common problem might be as simple as one of the latches is stuck in the closed position. For instance, if you opened your laptop, but the switch stayed stuck in the closed position, the computer will usually be on, but the backlight will remain off. First find the back lightswitch. These switches are usually very tiny and located near the laptop hinges. First try to open and close your laptop a few times, if this doesn't work, usually a gentle tap or using a small pin to try to gently un-stick the latch will do the trick.
Your laptop Screen Flickers or is a Solid White Color
If your laptop screen flickers on and off, the cause isprobably due to an inverter problem. The inverter supplies power to the screen's backlight. Inverters are easy to replace and usually cost about $100.If your laptop screen is a solid white color, then the problem is possibly abad cable connection between the monitor and the system board. Open up your laptop and make sure that the cables and connections are set correctly andundamaged.
Images on Screen are Jumbled
Many times laptop users will see images that are all jumbled. In most cases this is not due to the screen itself, but possibly the video card. One quick way to determine whether or not it is your monitor thatis causing the screen to be jumbled is to connect another monitor to your laptop using the VGA port. If the other monitor shows jumbled images, then it is probably your computer'svideo card and not the monitor.
