Lines across the bottom of my screen, do you think it's the LCD or the digitizer.

    If I move the base of the screen just right they used to go away but as soon as I'd let go they'd come back. Now they stay on all there all the time.

    I have already taken it apart and checked all the connections & they aren't loose. I don't want to spend the $100 to buy a replacement LCD so if it's the LCD I can just send it in for warranty. I really don't want to send it on warranty & if it is the digitizer I can get one for $15 so I don't mind replacing it myself. What do you think is causing it?

    Everyone seems to think it is a loose connection & I'm at a loss at to what could be loose. It is an hp DV6000 series & there is are teardown guides of the digitizer here (http://www.insidemylaptop.com/remove-replace-lcd-screen-inverter-hp-pavilion-dv6000-laptop/) and to remove the keyboard & get the rest of the connections here (http://www.insidemylaptop.com/take-apart-hp-pavilion-dv6000-laptop/)

    Have u tried calling HP support. I know they area pain to deal with but judging by ur problems, it could even be a problem w/ the gfx card.
