Laptop, white screening

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So my laptops screen has started to fade to white, but in certain positions it's fine and works normally. Guessing it's the cable? If anyone has encountered this problem before and can confirm, would appreciate also some pointers for what the cable is that does this is called would be great

 

Also the colours on the right hand sight get distorted and form a green and purple mountain looking ridge at the beginning of the fade, not sure of relevance but yeah :) 

 

Thank you! 😀

Cable or display power inverter or gpu. Depends on what you have. On older macbooks it was the inverter first that later killed the lcd as well or part of it. If it's working in some position and not in others I'd look at the cable. Maybe a damaged wire or a loose connector. If you have warranty I'd use it.

sounds like a polarizing film issue? im not too into panel's construction though, just a guess

by position, you mean user position or panel's position?

if it's panel's position then it's probably the connector on the laptop's motherboard or the cable yes

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

 

Spoiler

 

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

 

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

 

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

 

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

 

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer monitors, Gigabyte, Seagate HDD, Kingston SSD, Razer (except their mouse), XiaoMi Phones

 

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

It's a dsll inspiron 15 5577, but screen works in some positions so I'll go with getting s new cable and work from there, sadly it's a few years out of warranty

Thank you for the help 😀

I mean panel position, but if I shift with it on my lap it starts to fade then I have to find a sweet spot where it doesnt fade and hold still as a statue 😂 and thanks, I'll start with checking the cable connection and getting a new cable

 

Thank you for the help 🙂
