Dissplay not working

At times, more often than not, my averatec 3500 series tablet with swivel display will display a grey screen with a bit of flicker.When I twist it around over 90 degrees it displays well; when I twist it back it all becomes blurry and grey. Please help.

    No, I bought it off ebay, and I'm in Africa, so I'm not even close to an authorized service center. I guess I have to do it on my own. Where is the cable located/how do I open the unit up?

    My Averatec 3500T60 display sometimes works properly and sometimes rolls rapidly. It has worked fine for months and then the problem has come back. Swiviling the display sometimes helps and connecting an external monitor sometimes helps. Right now, nothing helps.

I had the same problem on one that I bought, that was used. You have to take out all of the little grey plugs and remove the screws underneath them. My cables were all fine. I had a connection inside the monitor area, near the top. There is a ribbon cable with a flat, wide plug on it. I had to uncompress the sides of the plug & jack. It cured the problem. About 4 months after I had it working, I found out the previous owner used to pick it up by the screen.

    this worked for me thank you sooooooo much you saved me, a few things to add dont take the screws off the main part of the screen there under some rubber things but where you really need to get is under the keyboard losen the cable gently and blow off dust or just dust buster. be carefull removing plastic around bottom of screen move the mintor in different postions. also the switch for turning on and off wifi might fall out so be careful. this is a pretty easy fix thank you..

I bet there is a short in the cable which would explain why it works when you twist it a certain way.

Did you get a service contract on it?

    It isn't a short, that would burn out the system. It's actually what's called an 'open'. The connection is lost until you make it connect. Tablet pc's are easy to pick up and carry by the screen and a lot of people do it. It's like picking up a puppy by the front legs or a kid by the arms the wrong way. It's an easy handle but it should not be done.

When you connect a data projector or external monitor to the external video port on the laptop, power up the data projector or external monitor first then the laptop. The video info will automatically divert to the data projector/external monitor automatically.
If you have already had powered up the laptop first, most laptops will allow you to toggle between the LCD screen and the external video port by pressing the Fn key plus one of the Function keys, this key will have a screen/laptop symbol.

Your new install of Windows will be using generic drivers. You need to update to the specific touchpad drivers. Download them from Trigem (Averatec is a brand name owned by trigem) http://www.trigem.com/us/support/drivers.asp

it's a digitizer (hardware part of LCD screen) problem, U can try to buy that part and replace it or just squeeze a little bit LCD screen on the edges around (don't squeeze the screen itself but just black plastic frame around the screen) - it helped my Toshiba for a while :)

Dismantelling Averatec 3500 series tablet PC


I have this same laptop. It is pretty simple to tear apart. Is there any specific areas you wish to access or did you want to just take it completely apart? If you are going ofr the keyboard ribbon or the touchpad ribbon, just undo the two screws out that are located behind the pivot point of the screen, then open the laptop and remove the small plate. This reveals access to two more screws (2 silver, 2 black). Remove the silver ones not the black ones. The black screws remove the lower shell assembly. Once the silver screws are removed the accessory bezel can be removed. ( the one with the power button and lights)

There are yet two more screws that lock down the keyboard. Remove them and pivot the keyboard toward the touchpad. You can now safely remove the keyboard.

The Pen


I'm not familiar with your laptop but judging from all the pdas I've had with touch screens the pen itself is only a pen, you could basicly use a wooden stick to poke at the screen and it shouldn't make a difference to the computer.

this laptop has a touchscreen If I'm not mistaken and you should be able to use it even with your fingers.

You might have a faulty touchscreen or then you need to install a driver for the screen?

Touch screen not working


Have you tried a new battery in the stylus? They require AAAA size batteries. The first time my pen went out I thought it was the computer not responding, but it turned out to be a dead stylus battery.

Teal and pink "aura" video problem


I see this periodically. I think it is just a problem with the connection to the screen as the wiring passes through the swivel. Generally I can fix it simply by rotating and/or changing the angle of the screen. Sometimes just tapping the frame will fix it.
