HP/Compaq :: Dim Screen After Laptop Screen Replacement
Feb 7, 2009
i broke my lcd screen a few days ago and i got a replacement from ebay. i installed it but i can see the image on my screen but it is verrry dim. there's no back light. so i put the old screen and turned it on and the back light is very bright but the lcd is cracked and messed up. i don't understand how could that be that the new screen is dim and the old one still is bright but messed up.
I dropped my laptop and while the computer hardware all still works, the LCD is broken. However, I do not know how to get the broken one out, let alone a new one in. Does anyone know how to replace the screen on the dv4-1430us?
In general, for screen replacement on a HP business notebook, what is the best option?
1) Ship it back to HP
2) Let a tech replace it onsite
3) Ask for the whole display assembly and replace it myself
I've mostly had Dell business notebooks in the past, so I'm not sure how good HP business repair quality is. I've searched the forums here and found some stories of people not being very happy with their repair quality when it has been sent back to HP and when they've had technicians on site so I was considering just asking for the whole display assembly and then replacing it myself.
Hi all, new person here. I did a search on LCD screens but can't find my problem anywhere.
Here's the background and problem:
Vostro 1500 with Chungwha 1280x800 screen that got cracked by my kids. I ordered a replacement screen from a company off Amazon.com that was highly rated. Got the screen and installed it. It is make by Chi Mei. When I powered up the computer I got 8 screens of start up and it was very dim. Once it went past the Windows start up screen everything went black. It would only continue to Windows screen, still showing 8 windows in safe mode. I hooked up the old screen and everything worked fine.
I contacted the company and they air expressed me another screen, which I received yesterday. Hooked it up and got the exact same problem, which leads me to believe it's the Dell that doesn't like it. I will try and attach some photos because I am at a loss.
i have recently purcahsed a 2nd hand DV9605ea laptop, which had a broken screen
i purchased another screen from ebay and have sort of succesfully replaced it.
however there are a couple of problems. firstly the screen that i took off had only 2 leads that connect to part of the motherboard, and the replacement has 3. i have connected up 2 of the wires and the monitor is working but i can only get a screen resolution of 1024 x 768. i have tried to install the nvidia drivers/software but i keep getting the error message no hardware found for this software. this also happens when microsoft updates tries to install the same software.
i guess that the monitor i am using is obviously from a different spec macine although it is from the dv9000 series.
can i use it with only the 2 cables and still get it up to 1400 x 900?
or can i upgrade the graphics card?
here is a link to show what 2 wires i am refering to. [url]
I downgraded the screen of my laptop from a screen with a resolution: 1920x1200 (LP154WU1) to a screen with solution of 1280x800 (B154EW01). Since then I have display problem as shown the follwing pdf: [url]
when i first got this laptop i noticed that the screen was distorted and there was red lines everywhere and the screen was shaking abit. so i contacted dell and they sent me a repair guy to fix it. he fixed it in about 15min by pulling apart the laptop and replugging in the screen. but now its happening again. so i think the thing that plugs in is loose or somethin. so what do u think i should do out of the following options.
1. open it myself and replug it (im a noob and will try remember best what he did)
2. get techinician to come in again (bothersome as i have school)
I just bought a brand new Sony Vaio VPCF11M1E and I have the following problem:
Because in normal stand the screen is very small, I enlarged it to x150%. Everything becomes bigger, but the following parts are blurry and absolutely not sharp:
-Pop ups, of programs and of windows itself (like advanced settings of something and then a new windows pops up, that one is then totally blurry; you can read it, but it is not the good resolution)
-Google chrome (and with that, all the internet pages)
-The google chrome on the desktop is also very blurry, while all the others, are still sharp (after the enlargement by 150%)
I have tried everything (32 bits colours is on, cleartype is on). I also did a system restore to the first days I bought the laptop and then it was on 100% so the resolution was excellent, but then I put it on 150% and again, the parts I mentioned above, were blurry.
screens that flickered every time they moved their monitor. My issue is very weird. When I first turn my computer on or wake it up the screen seems like it takes forever to come on. If you wiggle the monitor it will pop up and then go out again until you find the right spot. Now at this point I would think it is a pinched cable but as the computer warms up the problem completely goes away. I can move the monitor all around and have no problems whatsoever. This is something I can deal with but would like to know what the problem is. It is a DV9000 series laptop that is about 2 years old w/ windows 7. I just ordered a new battery for it because "it" told me I needed a new one. Wondering if it is a power issue or what.
I have a Dell Vostro 1500 (bought in 2007). I recently dropped it on the ground and the screen backlight got damaged. I ordered a new screen off eBay. I need help figuring out whether the screen that I ordered is compatible with my laptop. Here are the specs:
Original Screen: Manufacturer: AU Optronics Model: B154EW02
New Screen: Manufacturer: AU Optronics Model: B154EW02 V.6
The original screen doesn't have any version number, but the new one is V.6 (I'm assuming V stands for version).
Both are 15.4" WXGA, 1280 x 800 and Wide (16:10). The only difference that I can find is that the original screen is glossy, while the new one is matte.
Does the version number (or glossy/matte) make any difference?
I currently have an XPS m1530 with the WXGA glossy screen (1280x800) and was looking to replace it with the WUXGA screen (nothing wrong with the current screen; just need more resolution.)
1. Can I just do a simple swap? In other words, do I have to worry about details like video card etc.? 2. What are the questions that I need to ask before buying one? (e.g. Manufacturer, warranty, brightness, type etc.?) 3. Glossy vs non-glossy - please let me know your opinions 4. Would the ones sold on eBay (links below) work fine? .....
My M1710 is 2.5 yrs old now but is still working fine for me. The only problem is is my LCD screen has some problem and i see a lot of dots on it especially when the background is dark like in a horror movie.
But still it is usuable. I showed it to my local engineer and also contacted dell and they asked me to get a new warranty and they will replace the lcd.
But I don't really want to spend that much and I have a spare LCD monitor which i am currently using with a VGA cable. I can do tasks as long as it doesn't require me to use the keyboard as the screen is almost closed.
I bought my XPS1530 about a year ago. I am impressed with it, i hadnt used a laptop before and now i have tried a few different ones i have decided that the 1280x800 screen could be improved to a bigger resolution.
Is it possible to just change the display to a bigger one? or do i need other bits and pieces? The mobo was replaced last week due to a glitchy gfx issue .....
I have the same problem as the user in another thread Acer Aspire 6930 screen replacement but since the layout of 6920 and 6930 are different, I stuck at the part when I have to pull out two video cables beneath speaker cover, cause there is only one cable (that I am aware of) in 6920. So I hope someone could explain to me what to do next after removing speaker cover, cause I don't want to brick my laptop
I recently had an HDX16 and tried out a DM3, but ended up returning the DM3 because I simply wanted a bigger and more powerful setup. Well, I had gone through 3 previous HDX16s because of various issues. Now I get one of the last ones they made (I got it about a week ago but was out of town for Thanksgiving.) Anyways, there's a huge crack in the plastic on the long roundish bar that connects the screen to the laptop. I don't know what to do. I can call, but they can't even send out another replacement, as the 16 doesn't exist anymore. To me the DV6/7/8 series isn't even comparable in my mind. What does everyone think I should do? I get the feeling they'll offer me say $50 which isn't worth the crack. I mean to me $200 is about where I'd say I'd be okay. But even then, I'll use it every day and think of the crack.....
I have just bought my G62 laptop and have pretty much no complaint except the backspace's bounce seems to be a bit off and a little loud. However, I seem to notice this weird dimming issue when I set my laptop to either Power Saver or HP Recommended mode. When I go from the internet browser to the desktop and wait like 3 seconds, the screen seem to dim just a tiny bit. Sometimes it dims twice. Most noticeable when using the lowest brightness level. It's really bothering me, does anybody know what it is? It's not the auto-dim feature, because it dims in like 3 second. It just flickers a little bit.
Also, when I move a browser or window up and down, I can see this fuzziness on the outline of the window, including the outline of the search bar. I updated the display adapters, I have Intel HD Graphics display adapters.
I cracked my screen a while ago, and ordered a new part off some dinky little website. I was aware that the resolution would be 1366x768 instead of 1600x900 on this new screen, but I was unable to find the exact part I broke. Now, many months later, I decided to search again. I found this page.
Would anyone be kind enough as to look over those, and let me know which screen would be the 'best' one to get, whatever that might mean. I notice they are all the same price, but have different specs in the names. I am more of a software guy, and rely on others help for hardware advice.
I have an Acer aspire 6930G home theatre system. The screen has been cracked and needs to be replaced. Can anyone help with either instruction on how to remove the screen. Any help would be much appreciated.
I have got the top and sides of the front bevel off, but I cannot see how to get the bottom off and I do not want to damage it.
i have an 11.1" screen tx series, but the screen is cracked.
i have checked on various site, ebay store, and the cheapest i can get an oem replacement is around $300.
i am just wondering is it possible i can just buy any 11.1" netbook, and use its screen on the sony machine? since the netbook costs about the same as the lcd screen, and i can use the other parts too.
