When I open the lid of my laptop fully, the screen goes black.

I only get the screen to illuminate if it is open less than 90 degrees. If I open any wider than that, the screen goes black.

My HP Pavillion G6 laptop screen goes black if not tilted in two certain positions


Sounds like the cable feeding the inverter is either faulty or has a bad connection. You will need to take the laptop to bits. See utube video.

When the screen is tilt back more than 90 degrees shuts off


Look closely at the area where the computer "folds";
there's a small sensor that should trigger when you *CLOSE* the lid -- perhaps, something is triggering that sensor (a small pin) when you're exceeding 90 degrees, putting the computer to "sleep".

Screen turns off when opened


There is a thin ribbon cable that runs between your screen and the rest of the laptop. every time you open/close the lid it flexes that cable.
Something in your cable is coming loose, it could be that a wire in the cable is broken and connects only at certain screen angles or perhaps one end of the cable is loose.
You need to take the bezel off to get to the cable, verify that the cable is plugged in, if the problem still occurs then replace the cable.
You should find the cable fairly cheaply on ebay, search for acer "model" lcd ribbon cable.

Let me know if this helps.

DS Lite, the top screen goes black when opened the whole way when the game is opened to a 90 degree angle the screen is clear and works fine.


There are a few things that could have happened, the most likely that one of you cable clips is loose, and when you open it fully, it pulls it out just enough so that the connection is lost.

Your going to need to open your DS, (the forms at www.powergamingparts.com are the best forms to find these instructions) then just disable your clip, and reinsert it, and then close the clip, and put you DS back together. Just ask if you need any additional help.

If I open my Satellite A105 display too far, it goes black.


Hi, This is definitely a loose connection problem.
Does the screen go completely black or just a part ?
If its just a part, LCD is defective. You may have to change the whole LCD screen. You can get one for ~180$ from ebay
If the whole is turning off, I guess the power cable might be little loose.
You can open the LCD panel and check if you know what you are doing.
Else take it to a normal technician and ask him to open the LCD panel and see it.
