Broken monitor wiring harness

Found two broken orange colored wires (side by side) on the left side hinge of a Gateway 450rog laptop. How can I make sure I wire them back together; same wire to same wire?

MS 2285 screen is intrermittantly blank

Yes the screen data connection wires run past the left side hinge. Over time the wires, due to flexing wear through to some degree.

This data bus should be replaced as soon as possible. If a short occurs then it can damage the pc or the screen.

A pc technician will be able to fix it.

Take care!

Door locks or windows not working at times.

Alot of older cars and even some newwer cars and truck, you may find that door locks or windows work sometimes and not other times and they may not work at all. i've found that many of them are not working due to a broken wire or two in the wiring coming inside the door where the door hinges are located, in side the rubber boot, pull boot back from rear and front one at a time and take a good look at the wiring , make sure there are no broken wires, these wires sometimes break in half from the door opening and closing so many times, if you find a broken wire it can be repaired by adding a small peice and crimping them back together. this happens to alot of makes and models, like jeep, chrysler and gm,

2000 toyota camry check engine light. trac light on. when i step on breaks reverse square indicator on dash board goes on. No reverse lights and rear light indicator on.

wires are pinched and shorting together near the left (drivers side) trunk hinge. brake light power is feeding back through the reverse light wiring. this will also turn on the check engine light with a neutral safety switch malfunction code as the computer also sees this voltage in the reverse light circuit. Find and repair the wiring, pull the EFI fuse in the panel under the hood to clear the code. Hope this helps
