Faint black lines on grey screen
I have a Dell Inspiron 1525. I had it connected to a samsung lcd tv through the hdmi port to watch movies. Last week I connected the hdmi lead but the tv didn’t detect a signal. So I tried a system reboot. The screen on the laptop lights up as in you can see the back light working but thats the limit to it. I then connected it to an external monitor and it work fine through there. I replaced the inverter still nothing. I removed the screen for easy access to the inverter. I booted the machine up while it was still open. It appears the back light is working. so I have the laptop reassembled. When I boot up I can see very very faint horizontal black lines set against a charcoal grey screen. so I know it’s not the inverter not sure if having the laptop connected to the tv through the hdmi has burnt something out. If anyone has any ideas as I am praying it’s not the screen. really can’t afford a new screen at the moment. Any help at all guys would be very much appreciated
Is this a good question?
