Display getting distorted and goes white blank at times

I hv been using Thoshiba TE2100 for the past three years without any problem. Now the display gets distorted with jerky lines and losses the sync completely. Some time it goes balnk white. I hv to forcefully turn it off by holding the power on button on the laptop to shut. When i start again it works and same problem after some time. I observed alos that when I tap near the display it settles down some time. May be a loose connection? Pls. help me on this one.

    The actual problem is the CGA card connector which sits on the mother board. There is a loose connection, but this cannot be repaired. Either the card or the mother board has to be replaced.

    Thankyou for your suggestion, your site is of great use for guys like me who want to fix problems themselves. Thoshiba service is a loot.HCL ( a dealer for Thosibha in India) is changing Rs.2000/- or $45/- for a cable connector.

It could be a problem with an internal connection. A quick test and perhaps even fix would be to grasp the right and left sides of your display while it is on (displaying the offensive lines) and gently twist like you were wringing out a towel. Again, and I emphasize, gently using only a couple of ounces of force. Watch to see if the lines disappear, get worse of make the screen flash or change. If you do then its likely cause is the connector from the LCD panel to the electronics has oxidation or a loose connection. If you?re lucky the flexing might even fix your problem, if not you will have to take it apart to find out exactly what is going on.

remove the original amp speaker and gently push in and out on it, checking for uneven resistance or scratching. the speaker should retract and return smoothly, without any scratchiness or uneven resistance from within, and if there is any of this scratchiness or uneven resistance from within, the speaker is likely damaged from too much wattage or distortion.

N72 screen goes blank

Your display circuit is broken, even if the LCD-panel,
seems to be ok the display is damaged.
This is a very common problem in Nokia phones.
The only way to fix this is to change the display.
You need a T-5 or 6 Torx Skrewdriver to do the job.
You can find displays for fair price at :

Screen gets distorted and turns white

Hi,

The part that is bad is the Ribbon flex cable that geos from the main board to the LCD board. Over time the cable becomes chaffed and will lose continuity between the traces. It can be fixed with

Tessco Part #: GH97-07715A

It does need to be soldered on the LCD side.
