Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad R51 Notebook ?

My Ibm Laptop r51 has a vertical lines on the screen

\015 At first i had one vertical, scrolling vertically, line on the screen now i have 4 scrolling and 1 solid vertical line. I have been told on the phone it could be something to do with the light array but i am still unsure of what i should do whether it is fixable or if i need a new screen or if i should just buy a new laptop. Some direction on this matter would be appreciated Thanks I had one vertical line and about a month later another 3 vertical line appeared. Please help\015

Answers :

The lines appearing on your LCD means it has a defect on the screen.
\015\012There are 3 types of pixel defect
\015\0121) dead pixel - pixel is always off
\015\0122) stuck pixel - pixel is always on
\015\0123) hot pixel - pixel is on but in red, green, blue or yellow, can also be a light black color
\015\012You can try to fix stuck or hot pixels but dead is dead.
\015\0121st method, flashing different colors rapidly:
JSScreenfix.com has a great tool. This is their free java applet or you can download it below.

2nd method, applying pressure to pixel:
Damp paper towel, Small stylus or dull pencil.

3rd method, tapping the pixel:
Pen with cover on or another small, blunt object.
\015\012If your laptop is still under warranty, get it replaced. If not you are looking at the most expensive part in a laptop to get replaced. (LCD screens on laptop is roughly equivalent to 40-60% of the total laptop cost
\015\012Please rate this if it this helps.
I suggest you buy a new laptop...otherwise screen repir will be too expensive for you..Good luck
