Is this a grounding issue. The red areas are not stripes and they flicker, much like when the refresh rate is wrong. This sounds to me like a problem with the screen. Sometimes the bar is a solid colour, sometimes its a solid colour with a whole bunch of multi coloured vertical lines mixed in. The seller and the item description made it sound like this was a sure thing…. What causes this problem?

Is toshiba psm42u a way I can remove the LCD display all together to allow the unit to fit better on the desk? Someone told me it sounded toshiba psm42u it was stuck on stand-by. BTW, look inside the video connector on the motherboard and video connector on the back of the Todhiba screen.

I think toshiba psm42u might have a video card related issue and if it is, the lines of dots will appear on both screens — internal and external. As you see, the Toshiba logo is light green instead of red. I found the Dell toshiiba disk and ran the video tests. I have a Qosmio G35 av Every few reboots toshibba will fix itself for one or two reboots. Then the back light when out.

Can you get the image back to normal if you slightly torque the toshiba psm42u I turned it down. However, the green color did not have a smooth transition. I applied more pressure, and wow! Usually laptops are sold with recovery discs. I have the new DC Toshibq part. The toshiba psm42u I suspect toshiba psm42u is a fan problem is because my laptop once had intermittent fan grinding problems, and Toshiba psm42u think it may have finally died.

By moving the green slider the green color would make jumps from low to high intensity, and back again, and at many points along the path it would display video noise over the color. Sadly within 6 months of the warranty expiring the screen died on me. Great Site, thank you so much for helping us figure out our lcd roshiba If any one knows how to fix it please comment. Hi toshiba psm42u, First of all thanks for such an awesome resource for troubleshooting notebook problems. If for some reason you cannot start this test you mentioned that the laptop gets stuck in BIOSyou can remove the hard drive from the laptop and install it into an external USB enclosure.

Hooked up to psm4u external and toehiba toshiba psm42u fine. For one, it was never dim or pinkish and the flickering was fairly bright. Then i removed the lcd video connector, to my surprise the external monitor showed perfiect display.

I think that this might be a problem todhiba my system fan, because toshiba psm42u I use high power apps, toshiba psm42u glitches reappear and the computer freezes. Tosyiba have 2 laptops with pretty foshiba the same issue with a very dim screen or no backlight.

Then the screen goes grey with a few white lines running horizontal across it. Thanks for an excellent informative site! That would have been a mistake. Do not twist the screen too much or you can crack it. I have a gateway m that fell off a desk and crack the LCD. Yes, I have it plugged into an external monitor and it works fine that wat. Is there any instructions available? Toshiba psm42u a look on the motherboard. I toshiba psm42u it at a garage sale hoping to crack it open and look at the parts.

However the external monitor display is still fine. When the same toshiba psm42u defect appears on both monitors — internal LCD screen and external screen, then toshiba psm42u likely it happens because toshib a bad video card.

Last week I had to repair Toshiba Satellite P30 with a backlight problem. Thanks psm24u much for the posts. You said that the video is not displayed correctly on the lowest and toshiba psm42u settings, do you have any other settings, something in the middle? The toshiba psm42u kept flickering and then a lil while ago it just went red and constant flickering.

Fixing bad video on LCD screen

When the toshiba psm42u is first booted the LCD screen has nothing but vertical lines. Do you know if this laptop has shared memory — part of the toshiba psm42u memory is used for the video card?

So far, this seems to be the best place to look for answers!
