Inspiron 5558 Signature Edition - Purple Vertical Lines and display Flicker

Hi All,

I have Inspiron 5558 Signature Edition Laptop which i bought in 2015 November  . From Past few months , i see Purple Vertical Lines and Display Flickers a lot  . I ran Dell Diagnostic test and it passed Display Test ..Also i downloaded all latest  Display Drivers ...Still issue continues

Can someone  please suggest if there is a potential need to replace the Display Panel ?? 

Thanks,

Bhavik

Attach an external monitor - if the fault doesn't show, the first thing to check/replace is the wiring harness that runs between the mainboard and back of the display panel.  If that doesn't help, replace the display.

If the same fault does show on an external screen, you're likely facing a bad mainboard.

It's not the battery that needs replacement - it's the mainboard.

The board will run between $150-250 (low for i3/integrated video, high for i7/discrete video).  Add another $100 or so for labor for the all-in repair cost.
