Question about Toshiba Satellite M305-S4826 Laptop

1 Answer

Have a satellite m305-s4910. Screen was very dark, except normal when open only a few inches. Took cover off screen. If I move a bundle of wires wrapped in black tape at the bottom left side of the screen forward into the slot where the screen cover would rotate, the screen is fine in the open position. Seems to be a problem with the screen close sensor, but I can't find the sensor. Any help appreciated.

Seems that you have a faulty LCD cable. The LCD cable transfers data signal from the motherboard & video card to the LCD screen. It also supplies high voltage DC power to the screen inverter board. The screen inverter board works as a power supply for the backlight lamp mounted inside the LCD screen. It converts low voltage DC power to high voltage AC power needed for the backlight lamp. You will need to replace this cable to fix the problem permanently.

I have a screen freezing on my laptop Toshiba satellite m305-s4910 and the pointer not moving.thanks


Either it's getting to hot or you have gotten infected, try cleaning the vent with canned air... if you can run a virus scan, Older Toshibas are notorious for getting hot...

Toshiba satellite m305-s4910 flickering toolbar


My M305-S4910 was doing the same thing. After some research, I replaced the video cable. The flickering was not as bad, but still there. I just replaced the inverter, and the pink line beneath the toolbar is now gone and so is the flickering. :-)

Hello, I dropped my toshiba satelliet m305-S4910 and the screened change now has a pinkish tint to it. If I move the screen back and forth, it changes back to normal. Is there a way to fix this?


Hi. The flex connection are loosen inside. There is no way to fix this at home.
Unfortunately I had the same issue and I had to sent my computer to the factory for repair.

My screen keeps going dark although I can see there are images on the screen . I have to move the lid back and forth until it lights up.


This indicates that the wire bundle running through the hinge has been compromised. Some wire has frayed apart and is making intermittent contact with itself or the lid movement is causing the wire bundle to pull on one of the video connectors.

In order to fix this problem, you will need to remove the laptop's front hinge cover & check the bundle of wires connecting the motherboard to the LCD screen. If this bundle of wires is damaged, then you will have to get it replaced.

Okay I have a 14-month old Toshiba Satelite M305-S4910. A few day ago the screen began to flicker if it was tilted to certain angles. That got more extreme until now I can't get the display to work...


I have a M305-S4831, the screen started flickering a couple months ago and it seemed that the problem was related to the position of the open screen.

Somewhere I read that the cable connector has very tiny contacts and one may need a new monitor cable. Well, this is what I did with fantastic results:

1. I removed the 4 screen frame screws which are under the 4 plugs.
2. Carefully remove the frame, there are the normal plastic snap into place clips around the frame on all four sides. Use a very thin screwdriver or knife blade to get the first of the clips to release then just keep going around until all clips are free. CAUTION: the wireless antenna cable goes along the left side of the screen from bottom to just around the top left corner.
3. Notice the cloth covered cable on the left side that ends with a white plastic plug set. Mine was "secured" by a small piece of yellowish scotch tape.
4. Gently unplug the connection, I used my fingernails ever so slowly to get it apart, then reconnect together. This 'scrapes' the contacts clean a bit.
5. Get out your favorite hot glue glue gun and heat it up. Then I just hotglued the cable to the cover inside surface for about a half inch distance backward from the white plug. I secured not only the cable but also a bit on the connector itself as well.
6. Now when I open and close the lid, the cable end is fully secured but the cable is still free to twist as required.
7. Restart the computer and check your screen by carefully moving the cover...the screen should not flicker any more.
8. Reinstall the monitor frame and 4 screws and plugs.
9. Enjoy a normal monitor.
10. I did not want to buy anything, and I figured I had nothing to loose by trying this. So far it has worked for me.

I cannot get my Toshiba Satellite M305-S4910 to switch its' display to a stationary monitor. Is there something I need to do besides plug in the monitor cable?


Are you in windows 7? If so, hold the windows key and press P. Select the monitor output configuration you want (being careful to make sure you can still see the screen on something).

If you lose the screen entirely, unplug the vga cable and reboot the computer.

My new Satellite M305-S4910 is experiencing a monitor flickering. What can I do to stop it flickering?


Remove the power strip above the keyboard and the keyboard and remove the bezel on the LCD. This will give you a clear view of the wiring leading from the screen to the motherboard. Look for a loose connection or rubbed or frayed wiring. Also, a lot of video problems are from the cable getting loose that runs from the back of the screen. This is a flat cable the fits in a socket on the back of the screen.

Here is the lcd removal duide for your laptop....
