Very well could be. But if it got wet, there's no telling what all has been ruined.
I'm connecting to an external display to use it right now, works fine.I do not think it has been mentioned
Connect an external display
From your user manual for the Dell
XPS 13 Setup and Specifications (dell.com)
Thunderbolt 3 (USB Type-C) port Supports USB 3.1 Gen 2, DisplayPort 1.2, Thunderbolt 3 and also enables you to connect to an external display using a display adapter.
If the same symptom is present it is likely to be the integrated graphics, or some aspect of the system board, if it is not present then as stated it is likely to be the laptop display itself or cabling to it.
I am fairly sure that it hasn't gotten wet, the problem started randomly and I cannot recall spilling anything on it for all the time I've owned it.Very well could be. But if it got wet, there's no telling what all has been ruined.
That's what I suspected too. Just a quick question - I noticed while replacing it, all cables from the LCD to the main board came with the new LCD... so would it be correct to assume that any problem with the cables would be fixed with a new LCD? Or are there cables in the main board that can cause the issue.As coincidental as it sounds, I'm betting on another defective LCD. There's really nothing else that can cause that. I don't believe a bad cable can do it. I'm not sure if defective video memory would cause something like that, either.
There is circuitry on the main board that drives the LCD.I noticed while replacing it, all cables from the LCD to the main board came with the new LCD... so would it be correct to assume that any problem with the cables would be fixed with a new LCD?

Alright. I'll ship the LCD back in and try and get a new one. Thanks for all your helpI really don't believe that symptom is the result of a cable defect. If you can, while you have the front LCD bezel off, try pressing gently on the area around the screen. If you can see the chips on that side, try pressing gently on them.
I would urge caution before you spend that amount of money - ON A NEW ONEAlright. I'll ship the LCD back in and try and get a new one
Indeed , I wondered if it had been run and that is why I posted the link to the full guide on post 24Did you try holding down the D key when you press the Power button to switch the laptop on as Courient mentioned in post #6 ?
That should run diagnostics on the display without using the Graphics card and may help with troubleshooting your problem.
