Screen keeps flickering diffrent colours on laptop

I don't believe admonishing someone, for their selection of place where they bought a part, is considered a solution.

[Not sticking up for Ebay, or the sellers, but you wouldn't believe the number of computer parts I have purchased, and with only one bad deal. {Money returned, however}

Therefore I offer the following solution;


1) Let's start with the basics, j_patterson9


An LCD screen cannot produce light by itself. It needs an additional light source.
A Backlight is the additional light source.

A Backlight can be a CCFL or a series of LED lights.

The Samsung R519 series of Notebook PC's can come with either one. Just depends on what option was chosen.

(Read the above all the way down)

Now,....which version was your old LCD screen?
Which version is the replacement LCD screen?
They will NOT interchange.

Also, LCD screen, and a screen Inverter are a MATCHED unit.

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

Average Width of the lamp (Bulb) is 2mm. That is a little larger than 1/16th of an Inch.
Average Length is almost as tall as the LCD screen.

Just so you can see an average CCFL used for a Backlight,

A screen Inverter is used to convert the power from the laptop, for the Backlight, and LCD screen.

The thin plastic frame in front of the LCD screen, is the Display Bezel.

(Also may be referred to as LCD Bezel, Display Panel Bezel, and I'm sure a few others I'm forgetting at the moment. It's up to the individual laptop manufacturer as to the name )

Right behind this plastic picture frame looking object, (Display Bezel), and mounted towards the bottom of the LCD screen, is the Inverter.
(screen Inverter)

This small circuit board could have received damage also.
ESPECIALLY if the video cable was damaged.

Just an example of the screen Inverter,

1) LCD screen:
On the back of the LCD screen (Old one) is the manufacturer code.
THIS is matched up to the replacement LCD screen, to know you are purchasing the correct replacement.

If the entity does NOT have this information available, move on to another entity.

2) Video Cable. (Also known as Display Panel Cable, Display Cable, etc)

Test it.
Use a multimeter set to Ohms, and perform a continuity test of each wire in the cable.
This way you can test to see if any wires are stretched, and/or broken.

If you do not own a multimeter, or do not have access to one, may I suggest purchasing an economical version?
Average cost is around $8 to $12, and available at a multitude of stores.
An auto parts store is but one example.

Need to know how to use it to perform this test? Simply state so in a Comment, after you purchase it.

A) Although a video cable MAY look to be fully connected on the back of an LCD screen, all it takes is a very minute (My-Noot), loose connection, and you have your problem you stated.

Re-verify the video cable is completely and fully connected to the back of the LCD screen.
It would also be wise, of course, to recheck the motherboard side connection of the cable.

3) screen Inverter:
To test a screen Inverter requires a sensitive multimeter. Read, fairly expensive,

Without the proper equipment to test the screen Inverter, most consumers just replace it. (Low cost, and ease of accessibility to replace, is also a contributing factor)

What do I see just off the top, J?
The wrong LCD screen, and/or possible damage to the screen Inverter.

However it is up to you to Diagnose, and tell me.

Awaiting your reply.

Hp g5000 sreen does not light up as usal, i can see a the start up when i shine a torch at the sreen, what do i need to do to get working.

An LCD screen cannot produce enough light by itself. It needs an additional source of light.
A Backlight is used as the additional light source.

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

The LCD screen is a composite of layers, surrounded by a thin metal frame that resembles a picture frame.
To one side of the LCD screen layers, and under the frame is usually where the Backlight is mounted.
[Note* Two Backlights are used in some models]

Replacing a Backlight is more labor intensive than replacing an Inverter.
Due to this, and the cost, the LCD screen itself is replaced as a unit most of the time, when it comes to Backlight replacement.

Example of a replacement LCD screen for the HP G5000 series of Notebook PC's,

[Note* Stating HP G5000 is just stating the model series. When buying replacement parts the EXACT Model Number should be used. This information is located on the bottom of the laptop, in a white Service Tag.

When replacing an LCD screen, the model number of the replacement LCD screen should be matched to the existing LCD screen's Model Number.
Inverters and LCD screens are matched together. Make sure you get the correct part]

An Inverter is used to provide power from the laptop to the LCD screen, and to the Backlight.

Note* 90 Percent of the time the problem is a bad Inverter.

Example of an Inverter for an HP G5000 series notebook PC,

The LCD screen, Top Cover, Display Bezel, Inverter, Backlight, and various screws, make up the Display Assembly.
The Display Bezel made of plastic surrounding the LCD screen, and in front of the LCD screen is removable.
Behind it is easy access to the Inverter.

The Inverter is approximately 4 inches long, and the width of a No.1 pencil.
Usually located at the bottom of the LCD screen, and right behind the Bezel.

This article shows replacing an Inverter and LCD screen on a Compaq Presario v2000 series Notebook PC,

This pictorial guide is not for the HP G5000 series Notebook PC, but the models are very similar when it comes to Inverter replacement.
The above link is to show you what is involved.

Please post questions in a Comment.

Why would my HP laptop screen go black?

A few reasons
1) backlight burnt out (or broken)
2) loose or broken cable AND backlight burnt out (or broken)
3) Failed GPU (probably integrated into the motherboard on that model)
4) failed motherboard (same issue above)

Check by plugging in an external monitor- if you get a signal, your LCD need a new backlight (or inverter, an easy fix under $15 USD)).

Cheapest solution is to simply replace the backlight, but you'll have to diassemble the entire laptop lid/cover AND the LCD to get to the backlight at the bottom. (this could be under $20 USD to do). Often similar sized LCD's with different part numbers will work fine in different laptops (meaning, a 14" LCD mady by samsung or LG will be compatible with almost any same 14" LCD made by either, especially if it comes WITH the inverter!)...

I have a Compaq N1020v with a 14.1 display. The LCD was cracked and I plan to replace it. I would like to replace it with the 15 inch display for the Compaq N1020v. Will that work, or is the 15.0 to big?

It depends on how "adaptable" the mounts on the "surround" of the LCD screen, i.e., whether the one "surround" was used by COMPAQ for both 14" and 15" LCD screens, or whether the part-numbers were different.

Laptop Screen Repair

The screen will cost at least $200.00 plus labor (approx. $85).

you will need to remove the upper lcd display casing, remove the screen that hold the screen to the bottom lcd display case, and remove the data and inverter cable.

I have lost the bottom third of my screen. If I twist/torque the top of the screen, the bottom will come back, but goes inactive and slowly fades to black when I let go. It seems like somethings loose, and...

Unseat and reseat the lcd cable that go into the lcd and also into the motherboard.

If the problem still persists then that means either the cable is bad or the lcd is going bad. Best option at that point is to get a new cable (doesn't cost much). If after you replace the cable the problem is still persisting then the lcd for sure is faulty and at that point if you decide to replace it, go on Ebay cause the lcd's there doesn't cost to much, usually under $200.

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.

Hope this helps you. Please rate my solution.

Hp Pavilion dv1000 Black screen

It is either the inverter board or the bulb

If it looks pink in color than it is the bulb and that can be quite the intensive project to replace

If it is the inverter board than that is not so bad and you can pick up an inverter board on eBay usually for around $10 to $20 and that usually installs right under the LCD screen (usually screwed to the LCD screen)

The inverter board is what powers the light bulb the data cable is totally separate function.
If you can see data on the screen with a flashlight but there is absolutely no light coming from the screen at all ever than it is probably just the inverter board

But there is a possibility that you could order the inverter board and have it turn out to be the bulb and if that is the case then unless you are very comfortable taking apart laptops then maybe a new screen would be best since you practically have to take apart the LCD to change the bulb.

But screen cost around 100 to 150 on eBay so if you decide to do that then might as well try for a deal like this: (I just spotted this on eBay and it is for entire new top half of laptop with glossy screen and inverter board wire harness and all for the same price or less than just the screen

That is guaranteed to solve your problem for sure.
