flickering screen
    #8800419 - 08/20/08 12:21 PM (10 years, 5 hours ago)

so i have been having some trouble with my screen lately. it starts flickering and sometimes it just gets stuck and i don't see anything at all, it goes totally white.

something like this


i did some searching and found out a couple of reasons why this might happen. i disassembled my screen and started fucking around to see what i could do and i found out that if i apply some pressure behind the lcd the flickering stops. so i guess something is loose in there but i really don't know what. i did a little experiment by putting a folded piece of paper between the outer plastic "case" and the lcd screen, so that the folded piece of paper is applying pressure to the back of the lcd. i used the laptop for like an hour and it all worked fine.

i was wondering if any of you guys know what the problem is or if there's any reason why i shouldn't leave that folded piece of paper there?

here's a (cellphone) pic of the back of the screen.

Out of curiosity is it an HP?

Shits weak dude.  Best bet is to probably role with your rigging and hope it lasts.

Agree.  Out of curiosity, where did you add the paper filler?

in this pic you can clearly see where i put the paper.


you see those two red arrows in the back of the lcd? in between those two arrows is where i put the folded paper to apply the pressure to the back of the screen. i don't really know why applying pressure there works but it does. i tried placing the paper in different spots and that's where it worked.

Sounds like a bad LVDS cable (the black cable in your picture), or a loose connection (under the kapton tape- yellow stuff).
