Hi,

Flickering screen could be indicative of a loose connection or a cold solder. Most likely, it would be in the inverter and/or CCF (cold cathode florescent) lamps. This is a relatively easy repair by re-soldering. It is perhaps more of a task to open the panel lid/cover of the LCD display.

This of course would require a fair familiarity of electronic components/circuitry and safety procedures, use of a DVM and a soldering iron. It would be to your added advantage access to a service manual or at the very least a schematic diagram with voltage readings. Should you be uncomfortable performing a DIY (do-it-yourself), perhaps your best bet would then be to seek the services of a qualified professional.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

I bought new screen of ebay but it flickers


Did you check both ends of the LCD Screen cable? The end that goes behind the lcd screen at the top and also the other end that attaches on the board. Also put a piece of tap over where the connections meet on the lcd screen to keep it in place.

Did you reseat (unplug then plug back in) the 2 cables that are in the LCD Inverter located at the bottom of the LCD Screen?

My Toshiba Satellite A105 screen comes on for a little bit, flickers and then shuts off. However I can faintly see the screen, and the laptop works fine when hooked up to the external monitor. Wondering...


If you can still view screen if you view it in an angle or spot a flashlight on screen. Then, definitely it is a problem on backlighting, might be loose connection, inverter giving up or cfl giving up.

Hope this helps

You may have a defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom: Screen flashs on red/pink and off. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering with dim display or appear black. Picture flickering on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp.
Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

My screen on my laptop flickers sometimes so bad you can't use it and my cursor goes crazy and i have to shut down for a while . When it flicker it kind of acts when a cell phone or something is too close...


Hello...
I had the same problem before (actually, twice) and it was the LCD - 'twas broken. So I returned it to the company and they replaced it (twice). Thanks that it was still covered by its warranty, I didn't pay even a single cent. You really can't use it well if the screen flickers but if you can not return it right now (hope it's covered by warranty), you just adjust the light of the screen by pressing FN and F9 (for light). That way, you can use it but expect that it will turn white afterwards and so you can't see the cursor again. It's only your broken LCD that needs to be replaced. Hope this helps... If you've got more questions, just feel free to ask more questions here, thanks! tc :)

Laptop screen constantly flickers and whites out


Your Bulb is DUE, you need to change it, Don't do it your self contains mercury. Your LCD is good IF you do not have bad PIXELS. This white and pink lines shows as pixel problem but it migth also short on LCD, if you placed something heavy on Laptop. You may remove and sent the LCD for repair or all laptop to tech.
You may also need to check inverter. I give service around the Country but it is up to you. My company name is JMC TECHS INC. Registered in Miami Florida. (Check SUNBIZ.com) jmctechinc@gmail if you like to contact me.

Lcd Flickering


Sounds like the driver board for the backlight is going bad...is there a spot on the screen part of the case ( usually at the bottom) that feels much warmer than the rest?

My laptop screen is flickering


That could be ths connector that connect the LCD to the Motherboard in the laptop. Ive seen something similiar wherein i took down the screen, cleaned up the connectors and it worked like new...... for a few weeks then it went back and started he flickering again. We finally fixed the problem by replacing the screen. Apparently the connector behind the screen was giving trouble. Have someone check the cable from your LCD to the board but I think you might need to fix the connector or replace the LCD screen. Regards, babb
