Screen is flickering and shaking

My toshiba is close to five years old. the other day the whole screen began shaking and began getting hot. I think the fan is shutting down yet wanted to find out if it was worth getting someone to look at it or should I replace it?

Is this a CRT? If so, it's going on a death spiral. If its getting hot, well, that sounds kinda dangerous...

I haven't seen a response on this forum as of today. I did receive an email inviting me to join a paying service.

Thanks but no thanks, offering free advice on your home page, only to email me about joining a paying service doesn't feel much like you all have alot of integrity overall.

Had I received a response first, then asked about the service, it may have been more appealing to check out.

Rest assured, I'll be happy to pay for services that walk their talk.

Hp 2509m screen flicker


Hi Kevin,
My daughter has the same problem with her laptop, do you find that when you move the screen slowly back and forth it either stops or gets worse ?
You will need to take your laptop in to an HP dealer and let them have a look at it.
Regards :)

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.

LCD flickering at the bottom of screen


This appears to be a faulty CCFL lamp which supplies the back-light.
Because it is less than 6 months old, I suggest you get it fixed under warranty.
If you try to fix it yourself you will void your warranty.

Vertical lines in my laptop screen


My understanding is that you have 2 laptops with the same problem, if that is the case, you need to replace the lcd. When you have lines on lcd's, that is a sign of a bad lcd.
