W520: Get a new display?

#1 Post by MSKFAHIM » Mon Aug 21, 2017 10:27 am

The LCD of my laptop has been progressively getting worse. Here are two images showing exactly what happens:


There is this white line that runs across the top as shown.


With a white background, you can see other LCD issues. As you can see, what was previously on my screen kinda leaves a watermark on what I am currently looking at. You can see the watermarks left by the browser window(top) and the watermark imprint of some cartoon figure.

Besides knowing that my LCD is slowly dying, I don't know much about what to do. I wonder how much it'd cost to get a brand new display put in. Mine is a 15.6" FHD (1920 x 1080) LED Backlit Anti-Glare Display. I'm trying to find out how to go about finding the exact display to replace it.

Any help/suggestion/advice will be deeply appreciated.
