LCD screen flickering


Display Configuration A flickering screen may be caused by the computer detecting incorrect display settings as it starts or returns from sleep. It can also come from changes to the screen resolution settings caused by a new program or update installation. Verify screen resolution before assuming the issue is hardware related. Faulty Inverter Next to the display screen behind the plastic screen bezel is a small component called the inverter, which supplies power to the screen backlight. The flickering indicates the power is not reaching the backlight. To fix the issue, replace the inverter. Faulty Connectors The wires and cables traveling from the display around the hinges and into the motherboard tend to wear at the hinge area. Over time, the opening and closing of the screen causes this wear. The solution is to disassemble the plastic casing of the laptop, reorganize the cables so they have no interference from hinges, or replace the cables and connectors with new ones made specifically for the computer make and model experiencing the issue. b> Test an LCD Inverter An inverter is an electrical device on the bottom of your laptop screen. The job of the inverter is to convert DC electrical current to AC voltage to maintain power to the backlight lamp. If the display on your laptop is dark but working, odds are the inverter or the lamp are at fault. When troubleshooting monitor problems on a laptop, you may need to evaluate the inverter to determine which of the two parts is malfunctioning.

Remove the screen bezel on your laptop. The bezel is the piece of the computer casing that surrounds and protects the LCD screen. To remove the bezel, remove the screws around the screen. Bezel removal method may vary by model. Once the screws come out, the bezel should pop off. The inverter will be under the screen. Attach the positive probe (+) of a multimeter to the pin 1 on the inverter. The inverter has two connections, one on each end. With the laptop screen facing you, look at the left side of the inverter. Pin 1 is the top metal flange pointing to the right. Secure the negative probe (-) of the multimeter to any bare screw. There should be a screw securing the inverter to the laptop that will be perfect for the negative ground connection. Turn the laptop on to test the inverter. Turn the multimeter on and check the multimeter reading. If the display records voltage going to the inverter, such as 19 V DC, the inverter power supply is working. Turn the laptop off. Unplug the LCD inverter connection on the right side of the inverter. This disconnects the backlight from the inverter. Plug a working backlight to the connection on the right side of the inverter. Turn on the laptop. If the screen lights up, the backlight lamp is bad but the inverter works. If the screen remains dark, the inverter is bad.

Mu laptop hinges are broken. I wanted to know what problems this may cause? Sometimes when I tipe words, it doesn't work in the screen. This could be related with the broken hinges?




Laptop hinges are generally made of low-cost metal alloys, or "pot metal yeah this may cause problem you can fix your broken hinges easily by spending little time ." Pot metal is not particularly durable, and over the course of a laptop's life cycle, repeated opening and closing of the computer's lid can cause wear that prevents the lid from staying in an open position. Hinges can also wear to the point that they break at the point of attachment, either on the lid or the computer's body.

Hinges are usually attached to the computer's frame via machine screws. In order to get the most life out of your computer's hinges, it is not a bad idea to perform a yearly inspection. Remove the hinge covers and check that the machine screws that secure the hinges are tightened fully. If screws are missing, contact the computer's manufacturer to order replacement screws; hinges missing screws are subjected to additional stress and can wear out faster if steps are not taken to replace the screw.
Lubrication of the hinge is possible, but not recommended; if the wrong type of lubricant is used, it could damage the computer's case or seep into the electrical components and further damage the computer. Consult a professional technician if you feel that your hinges require lubrication.

o Hinges can also be damaged when the computer is picked up by its lid, dropped from various heights or opened beyond the angle at which it should stop. In these situations, damage to the hinges may be of secondary concern, as component damage and data loss might have occurred. Depending on the amount of damage and warranty status, the computer may require complete replacement.

Laptop hinges are not indestructible, but their coverings and trim may show wear long before the hinges are actually in any danger of failure. Most laptops on the market include plastic hinge covers. The hinge covers can develop stress fractures from repeated wear; most of the time, this is not indicative of a hinge problem.
Some laptop hinges are housed within the bezel or trim of the computer's monitor or body. This, too, is generally made of plastic, and might develop stress cracks after a few years of use. Hinge covers and bezels are usually modular, and replacements are generally easy to find at low to moderate costs.

Repair

o Hinge problems can be mitigated with adjustments to the hinge's tension or additional hardware installation by the user. Brackets can be installed on the outer case to allow for hinge-like performance, or the screen can be mounted in a fixed position. If the screen is left permanently open, care should be taken to prevent damage to the screen and to prevent dust accumulation in the keyboard.
The lid and screen assembly can also be replaced, if the correct parts can be found. Replacement of the lid and screen can be cost-prohibitive, with parts and labor sometimes exceeding the cost of the computer.

my screen does nto come on it is going thru but the screen will not light up and the hinge is lose. what do i do?


if it's the left hinge then there's a good chance that the movement in the hinge from it being loose has caused a bad connection at one end of the wife between your graphics card and your screen. you need to take your laptop apart and if it's only loose because the screws have come undone tighten the screw but you might have a broken hinge. it's not an easy job if you've never done it before and if you take it to a shop they'll want to charge you the earth to do it. if it is just loose screws causing a loose connection then it takes about 30 mins to fix so it might be worth negotiating with them to look at that and only pay them for 1/2 an hour labour. i don't know what you mean by "it's going thru". if you mean that the power light comes on when you press it and you can hear a noise then your motherboard might be faulty. if you can run the computer thru your tv or a monitor then it's a loose connection. the best way to know whether it's the screen or the motherboard is to turn it on, wait for about a minute and then press enter. then wait and see if you get the sound of windows starting up. if you do it's the connection, if you don't it's the motherboard

My screen is loose, i would like to know how to tighten the screen..


You can take the laptop apart, and try to tighten the screws of the hinge. But i think the hinge is worn. You can try if the warranty covers it.

Good luck, and i hope this was helpful ;)

laptop hinges are loose


The hinges can be loose in two different areas, but the most popular is the hinge attachment point behind the screen bezel. Remove the rubber screw covers from the bezel, remove the screws, take your finger nailas and from the inside of the bezel pull gently to the outside to release the catches on the screen lid. Start on one side and work your way around the screen until the bezel pops loose. Look at the bottom of the screen and you will see the hinge attachment points. Tighten them up. If you have some locktite this would be a good time to apply it, remove the screws one at a time and replace. To replace the bezel, always start at the bottom and work your way up.
