I am having some problems with my LCD-screen on my Asus N53SV laptop (bought new 3 months ago): Red lines (vertical) and dots appeared after a slight fall to the floor, and have gradually increased in size and amount. I sent the laptop to the Asus Service Center to have them check it out, and their only solution was to replace the screen at a cost greater than the value of the entire laptop.
I have tried the following (mostly suggestions found on Google):
- Change resolution: Lines/Dots appear at the same place regardless
- Connect external monitor: Connected by HDMI to a TV, and no lines appeared there
- Re-attach monitor-cable: I de-attached the screen and took the cable out and in again, but with no result.
And I have by that concluded that it is a hardware problem, contained to the actual glass screen. Luckily, I can get a new screen at a fourth of the price that Asus claims is necessary to repair it, but I wanted to hold off that option until I was sure that this wasn't something I could fix without a new screen.
Does anyone have any suggestions for what I might try to fix the issue?
I dropped my Asus A42JC, the red dots and lines appeared 2 days after. There were only few red dots/lines on the right side of the screen. Is there any option other than LCD replacement? Btw, how much did you pay for the screen?
