What I do and techs is to swap part by part to find the broken part. I find this faster and cheaper than ohming (ringing) out a cable. Time is expensive (150 per hour) so a 20 buck cable is cheaper than testing a cable.
The laptop is a Lenovo T60p running windows 7 home.
It was handed down to me & I thought I would try to fix it.
The problem is that 3" from all the bottom of the screen, there are vertical lines all across.
Online searches gave me ideas to try:
I tried putting pressure on the bezel in different areas to see if the lines went away but it did not.
I thought maybe there was cable that was bent or loose , so I looked for videos to see how to take apart the screen so that I can take a look behind the screen.
I removed the screen.
It appeared the cables were in good condition. When putting things back together, except the bezel, I powered on the laptop to make sure it would turn on. It turns on but the screen is black. I could barely see on the screen a windows message warning box. But it's so dim I can't make what it says.
Even so, the screen is dark & I can't see anything or if the vertical lines went away just by what I did. But it appears I made it worse.
I think maybe a wire, or cable, is not placed correctly.
Can you tell me where to check the part so i can at least have it the way it was before I started messing with it.
I'd like to order the correct part to fix the vertical line problem. Any ideasuggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Also, if you know of a video that can help me with correcting these issues.
Thanks in advance.
