When i start my laptop after few minute its screen goes white and i can't see any flicker on this. I tried to repair but that doesn't help me.
also, sometime screen goes off but i can see the laptop is running.
It look like motherboard problem with graphics card.

Same problem on my dv6. woke it from hibernation began to login and screen striped and went white. occasional grey lines randomly and now just white.
Works fine on an external monitor.
So Anyone have ideas about solutions.
Is it the ribon cable that is broken?? or screen that needs replaced?

I thought it may have been a loose ribbon cable - worked on external monitor and like above has some variations in color shading and light stripes at times.
At a local shop I started to bust screen apart at the rubber gasket edge (there are no screws on this Pavilion dv6) and loosening some double sided tape, tech came over and clamshelled it open pulling the 4 screws holding in the lcd into a metal frame.
Cable looked fine (I thought I should have tried re connecting but within seconds they brought a new screen out of the back room and put it in and charged me $160 ( the same price as a replacement screen online). It took about 3 minutes - never imagined it being that easy to rip my laptop apart and re assemble without destroying it.
All works fine now.
Still wondering if the old screen was fine and just cable disconnected - too bad I left it at the shop.
Now I may be brave enough to attempt to fix the laptop sitting under my desk for 4 years with a dead back light
