HP/Compaq :: Replace LCD Screen Or Entire Display Panel
May 19, 2009
i just found this forum and it seems like you guys could help me answer this question. i have a dv2000 laptop i bought about 2 years ago and the screen has started to mess up. essentially it has two problems.
1. there is always a vertical line about a pixel thick that stays a yellow color. no matter what is on the screen, the line is always yellow. if i bend the display panel a bit it disappears but comes back as soon as i let go.
2. when i open and close the laptop to adjust the screen angle, the screen starts flickering with these white lines. i have to keep messing around with the screen (moving it back and forth) for it to come back to normal. im not sure if a cable is loose or maybe broken.
im assuming that i need to replace the entire display panel but im not sure if i can get away with just buying the lcd screen and replacing it. i can probably get rid of the yellow line on the screen but i think the flickering is caused by something else. could it be a loose cable that i just need to fix?
I own the HP PAVILION 15-E009TU notebook. It is just 10 months old. I had some grey lines in the LCD screen few days ago and called hp for warranty replacement. a technician came and replaced the LCD screen with a new one.
However the new screen has a sort of Blue tint the entire screen. I have tried different colour setting which may fix it in windows but the blue tint is still there when windows is booting up and in the BIOS. I mean what? Did I just get a faulty/refurbished screen again? Also the screen doesn't look HD like my original screen. Is there anyway to verify that I got the exact model screen I originally had? and what about the blue tint? should i try warranty again?
it always flickers and stuff. even so, it seems to be fixed (kinda) when i apply pressure to the screen. therefore, i am assuming something is loose. anywhere a visual tut on how to remove, take apart, and put back together the screen?
I just bought a new HP 15-r011dx Notebook with Windows 8.1 OS. It is running great except for when I try to watch videos. When the video buffers, the entire computer freezes, and the computer makes loud noises-like it is stuttering/chopping. It makes videos unviewable because of how often it happens. This problem happens on both Internet Explorer and Google Chrome. In addition, my internet connection is fine and I have installed all updates.
As others with x230's have found, I have an issue with the screen fading/graying out then developing vertical lines over the entire screen. Pressing the screen bottom screen border resolves it for a split second then it occurs again, though resolves usually after pressing it at various points along the plastic lower edge maybe 3-6 times, sometimes with slight flickering of whites after. Runngin at 60hz. URL...
I bought it on ebay so don't have any warranty information, unfortunately.It appears to be the LCD connector or cable.Is it possible to open it up and fix that somehow, or should I buy an IPS screen (the current screen isn't IPS I believe) and replace it myself?
I cannot adjust the brightness of my display using the Fn keys or the Control Panel... I have already had to replace my battery once... I need to be able to adjust the brightness in order save my battery life!
I recently aquired damage to my laptop screen, an HP dv6000 with a 14.1 inch (wide) screen. I am looking to purchase a new one, however the 'specs' or details of the screen (ex. Video connector info, backlight type) are way out of my realm of understanding.
Before I purchase a new screen, I would like to make sure it is completely compatible with my laptop. How am I able to determine this?
Also, what is the esthetic/quality difference between Glossy and Matte type screens?
A few weeks ago I cracked my glossy 1366x768 display on my Envy DV6 7227SA (product number C4V06EA#ABU). I have found a replacement online (part number 682089-001) but I was wondering if I could replace it with a matte 1920x1080 display (Part number 682090-001). I'm running Windows 8 64 bit
EDIT: This is the part I currently have in my notebook (broken) - [URL] ....
And this is what I'm wanting to replace it with - [URL] .....
I've gotten bored with correcting everybody about the specs of the previous and newer Envy laptops that are out there. So, to that end, i have put together this thread with the specs for all of them, as far as we know at this point.

Problem: I cannot restore my hard drive to its previous condition using HP Backup and Recovery Manager. I would appreciate any help in this matter
Computer: HP 2710p Tablet/convertible.
Two weeks ago, I backed up my entire hard drive using the HP Backup and Recovery Manager choosing the "Back up entire hard drive" option. I backed this up to a subdirectory on an external hard drive. I figured that I could easily restore it back should it crash and have everything (operation system, applications, and documents) right where it was and as it was configured. I was running Vista Professional.
Yesterday I had some sort of problem that would not allow the computer to boot. Hardware diagnostics indictated that the hard drive was fine. I grabbed the recovery DVDs (these are Windows XP) that came with the computer and successfully was able to get the computer working again. So, now I have a working computer - though it is in XP not Vista. My intent was to restore the hard disk back to where it was two weeks ago.
I have unsuccessfully attempted to restore using the HP Backup and Recovery Manager. When I get use the "Start PC Recovery" option, it tells me, "The system does not have a recovery partition. The recovery process requires the recovery disc set or Rescue Disk." "Please insert disk 1 of the recovery disk set or the Rescue Disc." Here's the problem - I don't have these in Vista - only in the XP disks that I used yesterday to recessitate the computer. This is not what I want..........
I have a Thinkpad E530 which has a 1366x768 display panel. Unfortunately, This resolution began to be low for my usage (some applications don't even enter the screen entirely!), so I'm searching for a higher resolution panel (like 1600x900 or 1920x1080). Could this be made or the new screen wouldn't work?
I have a zbook with a nvidia quadro 610m graphics. I cannot get the gpu to save settings or engage when playing games. It was working until I tried to give windows 8 a try.I did a fresh install of windows 8. Then I installed the hp drivers cd that came with workstation. Everything says it completed successfully and I've rebooted multiple times.
When I open the nvidia control panel, none of the settings I change stick. E.g. tell every program to use the 610m. I click apply it looks like it was successful. However, if I open the nvidia control panel again, all changes are reverted. I restarted after hitting apply too. It doesnt matter what the changes are, they all revert.
I'm guessing I screwed up with the driver install or something but IDK.The device manager says that the 610m is working properly and the driver is up do date.
Recently my laptop suddenly shrunk the display down to 1024x768, even in BIOS and when starting up. In Windows, the monitor is recognized as "Digital Flat Panel, 1024x768, 60Hz". Here is a photo I took with my mobile phone:
HP Pavilion DV4T-1400, with Intel GM450 graphic card.
Yesterday, after just a month of ownership, the display panel on my ThinkPad Yoga S1 became defective. All of a sudden, when I undocked it (after shutting down normally), the only thing that appeared on the display was a whitish image containing a dark grey vertical band (left), which happens to be the Lenovo splash screen background! The laptop runs perfectly fine when docked because it attaches to an external monitor. I tried fiddling with the Yoga's display panel, rotating through its various configurations and, after a while, a partial windows screen did appear although it flickered and, even still, nothing displayed properly in that left most vertical strip! Undocked, the laptop was and is completely unusable...
I got my Studio 17 on Friday and have fiddled with it since then loving almost everything it has to offer. On the flip side I'm deeply disappointed by the screen.
First of all the brightness is borderline acceptable. I didn't opt for the LED backlight since I assumed the brightness would be on the same level as the HP Pavilion I owned.
With this being said I urge all of you potential buyers to choose the LED backlight option other else disappointment awaits.
But the biggest dismay is the quality of the screen, it's so disastrous that I can't enjoy watching any movies on my laptop. My Pvilion has absolutely extraordinary image reproduction, the screen quality was second to none while the Dell has a screen I would expect to see on an Acer. It's pale, contrast isn't good enough and colours don't look alive and vibrant. I'm glad that I bought a Sony V4000 32 inch TV two weeks ago which is what I use as a display, and it's light years ahead of the Studio in image qualitly.
More over there is a horrendous leakage of light on the lower part of the screen making the taskbar and the blacks look pale. Lastly the viewing angle is embarassing, the screen has to be tilted in a certain angle or else the image looks terrible. My HP looks spotless from pretty much any angle and the same applies to the Sony TV as well. I'm very disappointed by this, especially when dell equip their laptops with Bluray which isn't justified on such a screen. I feel that they are making the standard screen sub par on purpose so that people are forced to opt for the more expensive options.
I can't adjust screen brightness using either function key or in control panel. Using the function key the little panel of brightness volume shows up on the screen but does nothing. And in control panel, through either the bottom brightness scroll or the power option won't change anything. Only time when the brightness will change is I unplug the power, but in the power settings it won't let me change/adjust the brightness.
And what is the battery function key for? I press it and it does nothing. XPS L521x
I've been trying to follow various vague guides on how to replace Acer screens. The closest guide on this forum is for the 6930 but the layout is quite different once you open them up. I have so far removed the speaker cover and detached the screen from the main laptop. I have also un-popped the screen bezel but am now stuck. The proplem is that as far as I can see, I need to get the whole bezel off in order to accesss the LCD fittings but I can't because it's catching on the hinges (and the small circuit board for the AC in socket) which protude from the screen. How do you remove the bezel? It looks like it should slide up away from the hinges but mine is getting caught everytime. What have I missed?
The screen flickers abruptly. And the screen gets garbled as well. But it seems to have really been knocked out today. The temperatures were looking fine at 60C but on a reboot the screen has like six small screen showing up instead of one with the HP logo.
i have a problem i brought a laptop with windows 7 on it and it had some type of software to show it show volume levels on the screen (OSD) i reinstalled windows because i wanted the x64 verison of windows so i could use all 4gb of my ram, i looked around the only software i found was QuickTouch and there is the version out for windows 7, does any one know what the softwares call preinstalled on the dv6 ?
i have a dv4t that used to come with windows vista. back when it had vista, i heard that the on screen display from hp won't work with 64bit operation system. now i have upgraded to windows 7 64 bit. has anyone gotten on screen display for volume control working for windows 7 64 bit? i couldn't find the driver for the dv4t on the hp website
I have a "compaq presario v6210US" which worked great for a while then it just shut itself off and restarted and the screen stayed black. Now it keeps restarting itself but the screen stays blakc. I can hear the fan and hard drive and everything else running the way it's supposed to. I heard that this has happened to a bunch of other people so it sounds like a defect to me. How do I get it fixed or do I just pull the hard drive, toss the Presario and get a competitors laptop?
I have connected my monitor to an external monitor. It works fine. Only problem I have ( and a little irritating one) is that the external monitor picks up display only after Windows is loaded. Pre-OS screens like BIOS settings, GRUB loader (I have Installed Linux ) doesn't show up)
Is this an issue with BIOS? Because, when I connect HP dv6000 to my monitor, I can see the BIOS screen as well. I am sure the problem is not with the monitor.
The BIOS is responsible for detecting displays before the OS is loaded right? I checked BIOS settings and there is nothing to indicate the display ports/devices (however, this page on HP website shows a BIOS screen "Advanced" which apparently has those settings)
