If your problem occurs when you open the cover (screen) more than 90 degrees, the problem is at the cable that connects the screen with the mainboard. In order to locate this cable you have to disassemble the laptop. It's not very easy to do that, you need patience and some technical knowledge. I have to tell you also that this problem will be increased as the time goes by. If you're about to disassemble it, I will try to locate the directions for that for you.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply.
If you are satisfied, accept my solution.

Thanks and regards

My HP Pavillion G6 laptop screen goes black if not tilted in two certain positions


Sounds like the cable feeding the inverter is either faulty or has a bad connection. You will need to take the laptop to bits. See utube video.

I just put my new grill together. The lid does not stop when I open it. It seems to me that it should stop going back at about a 90 degree angle, but it just goes all the way back. Is there a solution?


Certainly does sound like a poor design. Are you sure there aren't some parts missing or overlooked?

A quick fix would be to use two lengths of some light weight Brass chain and 4- appropriately sized bolts, washers and nuts. Attach one length of chain to each side of the hood/lid with a bolt and attach the remaining ends to the interior of the firebox with another bold.. Each chain's length will be determined by where you want the lid to stop, once it's raised. Leaning slightly back past 90 degrees would probably be safer.

Hope this helps to solve your problem.

My toshiba satellite laptop screen goes black every time I open it passed 90 degrees what should I do


REplace the flexible cable that feeds the screen from the motherboard if it is damaged or just plug the cable in as it may not be connecting properly.

Compaq Presario CQ50 notebook screen goes fuzzy when opened to a certain angle (about 90 degrees). Wires being pinched at the hinges? If so how do I go about repairing this?


it sounds like you've damaged the cable that goes from your graphincs card to your screen or when you move it to 90degrees it's disconnecting. it's usually caused by someone opening the laptop and not putting the cable back in the right place, or loose screws in your hinges or a broke hinge. there are plently of videos showing how to open it up. follow one of them and make sure your wires are sitting in the right place, you don't have loose screws and the hinges aren't broken.

The main inner screen of my LG Muziq phone onlylights up wheni have the phone flipped open half way. if i open all teh way teh main inner screen goes black.


i have (had?) the same problem , and i found that the phone wasnt being flipped open all the way, so i would bend it backwards a fracitona of a degree and it would light up. It still sometimes goes black . Seems to me, theres something wrong in the hinge area, as it also makes a clicking noise . I love this phone, but i had to get it repaired once, and im not doing it again. Also laying it flat on a desk by the keypad, then banging the display backwards works :D . Just fiddle with the display portion, and you'll get the hang of it .

Hp pavilion dv9000 screen and factory settings


*Actually*, with regards to the screen issue, software CANNOT cause a failure when the display assembly is physically moved....The two possibilities are the LCD harness (video cable) part# 432962-001 OR the actual LCD itself (part# LP171WP4 (TL)(03) for most models). My money's on the cable, not a stupid driver...

If I open my Satellite A105 display too far, it goes black.


Hi, This is definitely a loose connection problem.
Does the screen go completely black or just a part ?
If its just a part, LCD is defective. You may have to change the whole LCD screen. You can get one for ~180$ from ebay
If the whole is turning off, I guess the power cable might be little loose.
You can open the LCD panel and check if you know what you are doing.
Else take it to a normal technician and ask him to open the LCD panel and see it.

Presario r3000 laptop 2/3yrs old occasionally the screen goes black . if i adjust screen open past 90 degrees the display returns.???how is thescreen powered from the base.??? larry thanks


The display is wired...it is flat, thin and flexible. There may now be a break point in the conductor...fixed by replacing same.

Alternative solution is to use external monitor. I'm almost certain your laptop has this capability...look on rear panel for a D-sub 3-row VGA connector. Plug in a VGA monitor and enable through keyboard Fn-(combination key)...look at key symbols for one that looks like a monitor.
