Solved Bad LCD screen connection

I have plenty of experience dealing with broken laptop screens and bad video cables, but this one stumps me. I have an Asus netbook with a beautiful screen that periodically goes spazzy. Usually I can bring the picture back by moving the lid back and forth.

I took it apart and checked the cable and the screen, and found that the problem was not the cable, and not the cable-screen connection, but just past that connection, on the LCD's inverter board itself. If I hold the connection up a bit the picture always comes back on. I shimmed it, and that worked for a few days, but not it's degenerating again.

It doesn't seem to be possible to change the inverter board because it seems to have welded connections going into the LCD itself. It's a real shame to lose a screen for a tiny connection that I can almost fix.

✔ Best Answer
Inverter boards can be replaced on any laptop provided you can get hold of the correct board. You just need to be either handy with a mini soldering iron or entrust the job to a laptop repair shop.

That probably puts it out of reach for me. Not great with a soldering iron. Thanks.
