Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have a Toshiba Satellite P100 laptop which I bought in New Zealand. I think the model comes from the USA. Part of my screen is flickering. It runs vertically from the top to the bottom of the screen and the flicker is 2 inches wide. I can start my computer as normal but the flicker stays constantly. I can't read the screen behind the flicker or see my pointer. Can you tell me what is wrong with it and how to fix it? I have already tried the save mode and restart points but both don't work. I have an upto date Norton 360 antivirus complete package which I update weekly. John

Good morning, Kevin!
Sounds like an LCD problem. You can verify this by hooking up an external monitor. The external monitor will probably show a good display.
After verification of the problem,you may want to try to replug the LCD cable at both ends, just to see if that corrects the situation.
If that resolves things, all is well and good. If not, you may need a replacement LCD.
If the external monitor shows the same display, you may have a motherboard problem.
Hope this information is of some help.

Toshiba satellite pro p100 screen problem


The LCD can be replaced. The part is around $50-$75 I believe. It can be tricky to replace, but if you take your time, you can save money by doing it yourself. The screen sounds cracked or broken, and black & white will not work either.

good luck

Mohammad,

Toshiba Satellite P100 screen Inverter replacement;

1) http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-P105-P100/remove-lcd-screen-inverter-1.htm

(You can click on any photo to enlarge it. At the top, and bottom of the page are the page numbers. They are in white; Page1 :: Page2 :: Find another model )

2) Primer:
An LCD screen cannot produce light. It needs an additional light source.
A Backlight is the additional light source.

A Backlight (Present technology) is a CCFL, or a series of LED lights.
The Toshiba Satellite P100 series of Notebook PC's uses a CCFL.

Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp.
Similar to Fluorescent lighting used in homes, and businesses, but on a MUCH smaller scale.

Average size is approximately 2mm Thick, and the length is close to the height of the LCD screen. 2mm is a little larger than 1/16th of an inch.

This means the CCFL can be broken quite easily, as it is fragile. (You also DO NOT want to be cut by a Fluorescent lamp )

http://www.laptoprepair101.com/laptop/2007/12/09/replace-laptop-backlight-ccfl-lamp/

A screen Inverter converts the power from the laptop, for the Backlight, and LCD screen.

As previously stated in a Clarification, 90 PERCENT OF THE TIME the fault is the screen Inverter.

LCD Screen turned opaque at two places, I see two white opaque lines 3 inches wide one on left side of screen and other in the middle


Yes you are correct. I would say 95% of the time, you will need a LCD screen replacement. Also be sure to disconnect and reconnect the lcd cables, at the motherboard and behind the lcd itself, just to make sure the cables aren't making bad connection.
I have provided you a link to MANY lcd screen for your laptop on EBAY.
