Hey I got this laptop over a year ago now and the screen keeps flickering whenever i turn it on. I can barley see anything on it. Can anyone advise me on what to do as a new screen would cost as much as the laptop (I think)
Hi John. A flickering screen is probably caused by a dodgy connection in the backlight, and fixing it will almost certainly entail opening up the case which is beyond the capability of most of us. I think your only real options are to take it to a specialist laptop repairer or to get another laptop. Ask one of these companies for a quote click hereclick here
The backlight tube shouldn't be expensive - about £10 at a guess, but a repairer would probably charge between 1/2 hour and an hour labour to replace it. However I think it's more likely that either the flexible cable is making poor contact or a component solder joint is failing. A phone call to one of the repair companies I linked to above, or a visit to your local computer repair specialist should give a more specific answer. Have a look here - click here
