Acer Laptop Screen Flickering

Hello, I have an Acer 3003LCi Laptop. I have a problem with the screen flickering when it's opened to certain angles. Sometimes even just putting slight pressure from the back onto the screen will alleviate the problem. I'm a computer programmer, not a hardware guy :-) Does this sound like some sort of loose connection? That's the only thing that came to my mind. Any other ideas? Thanks, Lint My Acer Travelmate screen started flickering a few mjonths ago. When it flickers very badly, sometimes it just goes black and then slowly turns to white or other types of things and I then have to a) reset it or b) if I put it on standby for a while, close the laptop, then open it and turn it on again, I may be able to see the screen. Nowadays the flickering only lessens if I open the laptop 180°. What can be about it?

The flickering screen indicates that it is a backlight problem with either a faulty inverter or inverter connection problem. The inverter is usually located at the bottom edge of the LCD screen, and may have one or two connectors (one for the video info. and one for the inverter power or a combined connector) attached to the motherboard under the case near the top edge of the keyboard near the hinges. Reseating these connectors may solve your problem.

Laptop screen flickering


The video inverter may be failing, BUT...

More than likely the backlight is failing. If you can still see a VERY faint image on the screen this is almost certainly the problem.This is a very difficult fix. I recommend a replacement LCD.

It MIGHT be a bad lcd cable. With the laptop on, slowly open it from closed to open and back again and see if there is a position where the laptop screen does not flicker or turn off, [or if it does turn off if it turns back on.

If the screen goes COMPLETELY black then your GPU is failing.

My laptop screen flickers in and out, screen goes black


Hello there,
The reason the screen flickers is simply because the module of the laptop is faulty. The module is what connects the screen to the main board, it is like a flex for the screen. Once you can have it replaced, the screen will stop flickering.

My display flickering


1. Check the cables for lose connection in the connectors.
2. Check if there are interferences of magnetic fields from other gadgets.Yes, check if near your laptop, you haven't placed speakers, florescent lights, cell phones, radios and any other electrical device.
3. Check if there were any changes in the display settings like when some computers are upgraded from their original versions. For instance, many laptops that have been upgraded from Windows 95 versions to higher versions, have shown problems of flickering due to poorly calibrated refresh rate.
4. Many a time, it may occur that the pixels on your LCD laptop screen/LCD Monitors are damaged in certain area and so you're unable to see proper images. If that is the case, then you don't have any other choice but to change the entire screen and replace it with a new one.
5.To check if there is no problem in your video card, connect another monitor to your laptop through the VGA port. If it shows any faint images or jumbled images, then the main reason for your laptop flickering screen is your video card.
6. if you don't find that there is any other problem you can detect, there must be problems within your computer monitor screen, otherwise It is advisable to go to your laptop service center and get the laptop checked. If you find that your laptop screen is still in warranty period and you find problems of flickering, it is best to get it changed.

Acer Laptop Screen Flickers & Jumps


Hello,



Please connect the laptop to an external monitor. If no flickering on monitor screen, from my previous experience, this is more likely loose connection of video cable connected to the LCD. So talk to Acer support again and require the replacement of LCD.

Acer 4715z monitor flickers


Hello Blue_shadow0,

Your monitor may be flickering because the connection of the LCD is loose on the motherboard. You would need to open up the laptop and check the connection or bring it to someone who can do it for you.

Flickering screen on startup


Sounds like hardware. Several possibilities come immediately to mind:

1) Backlight is going bad. (It's a fluorescent light).
2) Bad inverter
3) Loose or bad cable in laptop hinge

If the picture is OK using an external monitor, it's probably one of those three.

I've used these guys before for screen repair: Unknown document title.
