I've got an eMachines notebook and the LCD has developed a couple vertical lines right next to each other. If I take the LCD out and apply pressure on the top and bottom of the LCD where the lines are they disappear. My research has hinted that perhap the Flex Cable is coming delaminated. The LCD itself is a LTN154X1-L03 .
Obviously I can eBay a new one... but I'd like to try and fix it myself first. Any hints before I really screw it up? :) Thanks!

The cause is most likely the connection on the lcd itself, not the flex cable. You MAY be able to repair this, but I've not seen it done with any success. Another problem with trying to do the repair to the lcd is you may damage the video circuits on the motherboard. It would be less trouble replacing the lcd. Let me know how it goes.

I figured as much, AFAICT the lamination at the top or the bottom must be coming loose (not visible). Obviously, replacing the LCD is an option... I'm just too cheap to go there unless I've actually blown up the thing. LOL
