I have a Portege 3505, and my screen frequently gets dead zones in the form of either a horizontal or vertical stripe across the screen. The only way I have found to correct it is to give the connector a bit of a bash, which is not a good thing to be doing. I suspect that this means there is some sort of faulty connection. Anybody have any experience fixing this?

I also have a problem with my monitor out connection, it doesn't work and it never has, again can anyone suggest anything. I bought this laptop refurbished from ebay a year ago (I am a student and can't really afford a new one), so I have no warranty and would like to attempt repairs myself.

Hi,
Have you tried removing the connector and see if it can be cleaned? It may be some corrosion. If it's a ribbon cable, you may be able to use an eraser.

This may or may not help,but,I had the exact problem.
All I did Was remove the LCD, and found the digitizer was lifting from the back of the LCD.
So I reapplied it with a firm press & since then I've had no problems.
I may be wrong but it seemed to work for me.
