Hi, Im a newbie and glad to be here.
I have an issue with a 3 year old HP 17" Pavilion dv9000. Over the past few weeks, the screen had showed very narrow vertical lines across the entire screen. Sometimes it would rectify itself, other times, it would display other distortion but the lines always remained. Periodically, the screen would rectify itself and it would be fine for a time before the vertical lines would return.
I hooked up to an external monitor. The display was perfect suggesting it was an LCD issue. I replaced the LCD but still have the same issue! I tried the old monitor again but same issue, so both new and old LCDs give the exact same issue. I am stumped cos I just paid €120 for the new LCD....and no difference.
All wiring connections seem to be solid.
I would have assumed as the external monitor was perfect, the issue had to be a faulty LCD ?!?!?!
Anyone got any ideas on what the issue might be if not the LCD?! Might it be the inverter?
