My computer: Dell Studio XPS 1340
Problem: For quite awhile now, I have had a problem with my LCD (LED backlit) screen. There are 2 (sometimes 3) bars that run right down the middle of the screen. One bar is black with multi-colored lines, one is white, and another is constantly changing. If I press in on the screen, the changing bar will temporarily go back to normal, until I let go, then it goes back to black/white/multicolored. The other two bars will not change even with pressure applied.
I've tried taking the computer apart but I dont know enough about it to know what to look for. I looked for anything that looked like it was unplugged or dirty but did not find anything.
I've looked on eBay and I can get a replacement screen for about $75. I contacted Dell and a replacement through them is $480 for JUST the screen. Is eBay going to be my best option? Or is there something else I can go to fix this? I've attached a pic of the screen as it is right now.
