Question about E-Machines M2350 Notebook
Symptom: At one point the TFT screen would be on and functioning but if the screen is adjusted to another angle, it would go dark. Now it doesn't function at all. How do I access the "ribbon wiring" for the TFT screen to make sure it has a good connection?
These models sometimes have a problem with flickering screens, screens going black, etc. This is caused by the cable running from your LCD lid area to your motherboard.
To gain access to this cable, flip your laptop upside-down, but make sure the back is facing you (vents and such). There are 4 screws along this side, you only need to take out the middle two.
Once that is done, flip your laptop upright again, open the lid and pry up the power bar. The cable you seek is running on the right side, should be wrapped in gray-colored tape.
Adjust this cable so that it cannot move and is not being pinched, and you should be set.
If that didn't work, and since your LCD is no longer lighting up at all, I'm almost leaning towards your problem being your inverter board. Very easy to swap out, and cheap at around $20 at darntoothysam.com.
The LCD inverter board is located at the bottom front part of the LCD lid. Just take off the front frame of your lid by removing the power bar (as instructed above) and then removing the screws under the rubber bumpers on the LCD frame. Then it's just a matter of carefully peeling the glue holding the frame down at the bottom.
Your inverter board is the long green-colored board you should see with the front frame removed. This board will have two connections plugged into it. Quite the easy swap, yes?
