    Hello everyone,

    First of all thank you so much for your time. I really appreciate it. I have a really weird issue with my laptop screen. So the screen gradually blackens (please check the attached video). If I apply pressure on some points on the screen it gets normal but then again starts to blacken. There's no specific point as such which brings it back to normal. I just keep pressing it from different points and sometimes it gets back to normal easily sometimes takes a lot of time. Also, once it is back to normal I have to keep some object behind the screen like a book or something so it keeps pressure applied at the back of the laptop screen or else it again starts to blacken. I have literally no idea why this is happening. I would just appreciate if someone could point me in the right direction. I want to know what is really causing this issue so I can get it fixed instead of replacing the whole screen because the screen does work fine if not in the blackened state. Any help is really appreciated. Thank you.

    Laptop Model : Dell Inspiron, 5559 Signature Edition, 15.6" Full HD LED Screen (It's a touch screen laptop, the touch etc works fine)

    Is it under warranty? If so, send it in for repair. It's a hardware problem, nothing we can do via a forum will help.
