Question

Replaced laptop screen but only flashes between colors.

by theringofice / August 18, 2014 6:06 AM PDT

So my Samsung series 7 Chronos (NP700Z5C-S01UB) was accidentally stepped on and the screen was cracked and had a bunch of dead pixels. I ordered a new screen from ebay and just replaced everything but when I turn it back on the only thing I see is it switching between red, green, black, white, etc. I have no idea what's wrong because I plugged the cable back into the broken one and it was working.

The broken monitor part says LTN156KT06-801 and beneath that 5VCD24701N and the new one says LTN156kt06 and underneath is 5VDC07101F X01.

School is starting soon and I need this fixed ASAP. Thank you!

same problem
by yosunga / March 21, 2015 12:21 AM PDT

Having the same problem , it is not a service issue cause the computer works fine with the broken lcd
The defective lcd panel is : LTN156KT06-801
The new lcd is : LTN156KT06-X01

I think it is a compatibility issue , maybe different firmware etc , anybofy has a solution for this.

Time to get estimates.

The damage may run deeper than the LCD. The strain can crack boards and solder joints so head to samsung.com and I see service contacts there. Get an estimate and this may be a lesson about keeping high value items off the floor and in some near bullet proof box.
