The screen on mine went dead. Then I realized that I could see the screen if I held a flashlight up to it, but just barely. Any ideas?

How do i fix a flickering screen problem of my HP Compaq 6735s laptop


The flickering could be a sign that your lcd screen is going bad and needs to be replaced. It could also be the video card inside the computer. Isolate the problem by connecting another monitor to the laptop. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the laptop. If the Borrowed monitor displays ok without flickering, then your video card inside the computer is good, but your lcd screen is bad. If the Borrowed monitor flickers like your lcd screen did, then your video card inside the computer is bad.

Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves your video card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

Try tapping the back of the lcd screen's lid to see if the flickering stops, increases or decreases. It might be that the lcd cable located at the top on the back of the lcd screen is loose.Isolate the problem by connecting another monitor to the computer. You'll have to take the lcd apart to get to the video cable on the back of it.

What's your problem?On going problems with Samsung R519 laptop after all the advise I tested laptop on separate monitor and it worked fine with no problems I bought new screen lead and still had p


The external monitor has proven there is no problem with the video graphics card, I'am concerned that customers have complained about faulty screens.
I have changed a lot of displays without issue, there is a major circuit board mounted behind the screen that plays a roll in picture production so if something goes wrong you get all kinds of symptoms from fuzzy images to multi color lines to a blank screen. I would suggest getting your money back because of his track record, also go online to Samsung and contact customer support and the technical department to see if something was over looked. Question! is this a new or used LCD display?

Flickering screen


Try an external monitor to the laptop and see if it flickers. If it does, more than likely your video card is going bad. If it does not flicker on the external monitor you probably have a loose video cable or lcd inverter cable. Go back inside and remove the 2 cables that go into the LCD Inverter that sits at the bottom of the LCD Screen, then plug them back in. Then unplug the video cable at the top behind the lcd screen, plug it back in and secure it with a piece of tape right where the two connections meet.

Can you check the function buttons and make sure the primary display is set to show the output on the laptop. Try repairing your OS. If not then re-install the os. As you are saying till the time windows gets loaded, all works fine so it seems the issue isn't really the hardware.

Flickering screen on startup


Sounds like hardware. Several possibilities come immediately to mind:

1) Backlight is going bad. (It's a fluorescent light).
2) Bad inverter
3) Loose or bad cable in laptop hinge

If the picture is OK using an external monitor, it's probably one of those three.

I've used these guys before for screen repair: Unknown document title.
