Quick Sanity Check: XPS 13 9365 Screen replacement
I have had a Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 for a few years now. Not the fast Laptop in the world, but I have really enjoyed it as a small, light, away-from-home machine.
Sadly, about 1 month in quarantinin’ my the bottom 2-3cm of the screen started failing.
I am fairly confident it is the screen/touch assembly itself, but just wanted a quick sanity check before I fork out the cash for a replacement.
The bottom 2-3cm of the screen vary between horizontal lines and nothing visible, the actual image being visible under flashing black lines, and some line that should be visible being repeated in the whole area. I have attached an image. Does not look to bad right now, but like I said, it fluctuates.
All this is the case from the very moment it turns on, including in BIOS, startup, usw. External monitors work fine.
Is there anything else I could check to really make sure it is the screen assembly?
I would rather not purchase and install only to discover something else is the problem.
Thank you all for your help!
PS: If anybody has a source for genuine dell replacement parts like this in europe, I would love to hear it!!!
