Have you tried presseing your function key and F2? This will toggle your displays on and off. It is generally used for when you have an external monitor and would like to switch video between the monitors.

Where can I find a wiring diagram for the screen to laptop

You would need the model number of the laptop to do a search on a screen replacement then possibly find the correct instructions on how to reconnect a new one or fix the old one.

Why does screen only work certain places

This is a common problem with laptops in general, I know because I have fixed this problem in quite few. What happens is that every time you open and close the lid you bend the wires from the monitor to the mother board. Over time like any wire that is bent back and for will eventually break. The reason it works in some positions is because the insulation around the wire holds it close together and in certain positions the wire connects. Unfortunately since there is something like 21 wires finding the broken one can be difficult because the insulation will be intact. I generally just buy from ebay a new monitor cable that suits the laptop and then the fun begins. Dismantling the laptop, If your game try it otherwise give it to someone that knows how to do it. Good luck.

Toshiba Laptop Screen Shaking

Is it the video problem or the (physical) hardware problem? If it is a hardware problem, then you need to tighten some screws (at the bottom of the case, at the back, and some screws are located inside of the case) that hold the screen (if the hinges are not broken).
If it is a video problem, then you need to check the flex cable connection behind the screen, or you need to replace the screen. is a good source.

My ipad wont charge or come on

it has to be on for your pc to read it,

you need to charge it but sounds like your ac adapter is dead or the charging port on the side of the ipad itself

plug in the adapter then move the cord around to see if theres a break in the wire inside the cord, and move the plug up and down where it connects to the ipad (push it in and out and side to side)

if that dosen't work take it to the apple store and they'll check both for free

At start up, i experience flickering problem on the display screen and it happens for 3 min. after that its normal.

Your display has a flourescent tube behind it, and it sounds like either the tube or the driver board that powers it are going out. This is a high voltage device, so I suggest getting a technician to look at it. Both are not that expensive, and you will probably pay for in labor than the parts.
The display has to be taken apart to resolve the issue by replacing these components.
If you try yourself, look at the tube and see if it looks black on the ends (burnt look inside the tube). This means the tube is bad. If it is all white, your board is bad. Look at the leads from the board to the tube to be sure there are no cuts or broken wires. Nowdays it seems the tube comes with the board as one unit, so you might be looking at around $50.00 materials average for this kind of fix. Hope that helps..
