Acer E1-531-2697 Screen Flickering Problem!!

Ok so my acer laptop started flickering.

Everytime i move the screen back and fourth it flickers.

Sometimes i can get it in the spot were it will stay on for a few minutes.

 

Now i cant get the screen to stay on it just flickers.

I heard that my laptop does not have an inverter cable in the screen but im not sure about that.

This laptop is out of warranty. Can somebody tell me what needs to be replaced?

    fan cleaning are just a reference to find a video on how to open your laptop. Smiley Happy

     

    ok, your video is better, look at 7:30 you will notice the LCD back and a ribbon cable on the bottom of it, this is the cable you need to check it.

    ribbon cable? Is it white? I cant see in that video because the quality is horrible!

     

    This is a video with much better quality.

    Can you tell me what part of the video shows the cable?

    I got to the back of the screen, I undid the video card thing and i stuck it back in and i have the same problem. Any other suggestions?

    Hello,

     

    You have to replace the LCD panel (the inverter is defective). Here is a compatible part (yours is glossy).

  • ricoh15ricoh15 Posts: 8Member

    Are you sure? So basically your telling me that the symptoms only point to a faulty inverter?

  • IronFlyIronFly Posts: 18,023ACE Trailblazer
    You can try an external monitor, if this doesn't flicker, it's an issue on the integrated monitor.
    If the cable is ok...you don't have much more things to fix.

    So this will tell me if the cable is ok?

     

    How do i do this?, all i have is another laptop

     

    Is the integrated monitor the laptop that im having problems with it?

  • IronFlyIronFly Posts: 18,023ACE Trailblazer
    On your laptop you have 3 things to check to fix your issue:
    VGA
    Video cable
    Monitor

    Connecting to an external monitor and seeing no flickerin, this will exclude a VGA issue.

    Disconnecting, reseating and moving the video cable will help you understand if there are issues on it, still flickering? Cable probably is not the culprit.

    So only the laptop monitor inverter or LCD panel will remain.
