Screen colours washed out with horizontal lines.


Oct 25, 2012
I have a Vaio laptop VGN-CR36. The screen colours look washed out, text is difficult to read and there are horizontal lines on the screen as well.

Display on the external monitor works fine and photos taken through 'Print Screen' are fine too. I have tried to change display settings manually and also through the Microsoft's Fix It software. Have also cleaned and reconnected all the wire connections to the screen including to the inverter but the problem is still persisting.

I have attached some photos of the screen. Please suggest what can be done to solve this. Thank You. :)

I would say that the screen itself is dying.
