Problems with LCD screen-

By anieve ·
I have a Toshiba Satellite 1135-S1552 laptop. For a while there was a transparent 1 and 1/2 inch or so vertical band on my LCD screen. I could still see beneath it- but everything was washed out. If I pressed the top of the screen frame it would come back in momentarily. Now, there are colored lines that pop up on the left side of my screen and sometimes the entire left side of the screen goes out- sometimes with many lines, sometimes white, sometimes black. Sometimes the whole screen goes completely grey/white.

The computer is 6 years old. Running Windows XP. Does this sound like I can just replace the LCD - and do you think it's worth it?

Any advice would be appreciated.

Does sound like

The screen is on its way out, the price of a repair for the laptop compared to the price of a new laptop, well your probably better getting a new one.

Make sure you back everything up on your laptop just incase the screen goes completely.

Price consideration

by mjd420nova In reply to Problems with LCD screen-

Comparing the price of a new display element and the cost of a whole new laptop, go for the replacement element. They are pretty easy to replace and usually only run around $100. for a unit that's that old. There is the possiblity that the element may not be made anymore but you'd have to talk with Toshiba to be sure.
