IBM Thinkpad Edge 14" screen problem

Postposted on Sat Jul 13, 2013 4:56 pm

I have had this laptop, it's a intel i380 CPU, and it's worked flawlessly since getting it Feb 2012, yesterday the screen turned light grey with lighter colored verticle lines towards the middle. Sometimes you can see background images but not much. Nothing shows just this grey screen, the lower portion of the screen is a slightly different color of gray maybe 2" tall and running the width of the screen, anyone have any ideas whats wrong and how to correct it?
thanks for your time. :D

Loose or broken display connector, most likely. Quite often these fail in or around the hinge.
