Hi,

The other day my laptop screen suddenly changed from normal to a slightly distorted view. Images and general display are appearing with a red distortion on certain colours and a red shadow on some images and text.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Andy

Clasic symptom of a laptop screen backlight problem the cure can be as simple as an inverter replacement or could require a total screen replacement no way to know which for sure though

Dependant on the age and model the most cost effective and simplest fix may be to buy a used working good top section screen assembly from the same model laptop ebay is normally the lowest cost option

The Dell Service manual download from Dell support will contain the how to on dis~~ & assembly details

Just for information the laptop is a Dell Inspiron 1521 and is around 3 years old.
