Toshiba Satellite Laptop Screen Problem - flickering
Looking for advice for my Toshiba Satelliete P100-188 Laptop with screen flickering and banding. As you can see from the video - the main issue is the flickering band on the left side. Also, not so apparent in the video is the drop in colours, and distortion (looking like 16bit colours!) I have tried - Using and external monitor - this works fine (so it's not the graphics card or motherboard). - Swapping RAM sticks (made no difference) - Unplugging/replugging and jiggling cables to the inverter (no difference) - Unplugging/replugging and jiggling cables to the LCD (no difference) - Changing reolutions (no difference) - Changing refresh rates (no difference) The issue is gradually getting worse and is now ever-present - changing patterns dependant on what is displayed on screen. As I see it, 4 options remain 1) Replace the inverter (I don't think it's this, due to the graphical flickering and corruption) 2) Replace the LCD cable - not sure if this would help....? (£15) 3) Replace the backlight - (I'm certain it's not this as it's graphical distortion) 4) Replace the monitor....? at around £100... Most probabale cause??? Any sound advice or educated guesses would be most appreciated. Thanks!
