So I've been getting the white lines problem on my LCD that gradually increased and reached the ghosting stage where the entire LCD panel would go white/greyish and I wouldn't be able to view a thing.
Feeling adventurous, I opened up the laptop and found to my surprise that there happens to be a sweet spot behind the LCD (along the green connector) that when I press gently, would turn the screen back to perfectly functional. So to keep it pressed all the time, I attached a small piece of wood to the back LCD support frame. Fortunately, it worked for a few days after which the problem re occured and then I opened it up again and put a bigger chunk of wood in there this time.
So, right now the LCD is working fine but it does show those white flickering lines.ghosting when I TILT the LCD. However, once stationary, it seems to be fine. Now, slowly this technique is also proving to be only a temporary solution.
ANY THOUGHTS/SOLUTIONS WOULD BE MOST WELCOME.
