Toshiba A-105 Satellite, LCD Screen problem

Hello, I've had the A-105 for about a year. Recently the LCD screen has started to flicker--when it's at its worst, it goes completely white. I've taken it apart to check the wiring and see if if a connection was loose or if a wire had gone bad but that doesn't seem to be the case. When the screen starts to act up, if I press my thumbs against the plastic near the bottom of the screen or just adjust the angle of the screen, it goes back to normal but the solution is only temporary. Any ideas? Thanks!

Re: Toshiba A-105 Satellite, LCD Screen problem

Are you crazy, A HAIRDRYER! there are screws under the rubber sticky pads. When your LCD fails for apparently no reason there is a voltage converter similar to the balast on a flourescent light usually under the LCD screen not behind it. The next time your LCD goes out shine a flashlight at it. If you see a faint image there is no power to the backlight of the LCD. Also check your lid switch, and in windows under the power settings you can tell it to do nothing when the lid is closed as a work around to a bad switch.

When you "adjust the angle of the screen", that can only be a faulty electrical connection. Try again at the mainboard connector.

Screen Flickers

Sounds like your screen is failing. Could be just a loose connector behind the screen (pressure changes the screen display), but best advice is to replace the screen.

Your Bulb is DUE, you need to change it, Don't do it your self contains mercury. Your LCD is good IF you do not have bad PIXELS. This white and pink lines shows as pixel problem but it migth also short on LCD, if you placed something heavy on Laptop. You may remove and sent the LCD for repair or all laptop to tech.

Flickering Screen on Model P105 Toshiba Satellite

on the back of the LCD is a cable that goes from there to the Motherboard. Try reseating that cable on both ends. If that doesn't fix it then it has to be a problem with either the screen or the cable behind the screen.

If you've replaced the LCD Panel already, then chances are good, the failing part may be the FLR inverter. It's a thin little chip about 3 or 4 inches in length that bridges the connection between the LCD and the motherboard. It's location varies from computer to computer though, so you may have to check with manufacturer documentation. They're not too terribly expensive to replace though, much cheaper than the LCD panel, anyways.

Toshiba Satellite laptop won't start

From Toshiba Manual:
"Over a period of time, and depending on the usage of the
computer, the brightness of the LCD Screen will
deteriorate. This is an intrinsic characteristic of LCD
Screen will dim when the computer is operated on
battery power and you may not be able to increase the
brightness of the screen.
Try pushing Screen contrast to Max when on AC charger connected.
Allow several hours charging battery with PC off.
If battery does not completle charge Or if older than 3 years CHANGE it.

What you described sounds like a loose LCD cable inside. Does it flicker or have video distortion when it's moved?
