Solved Acer Laptop screen Flickers has lines etc

August 31, 2016 at 13:18:05
Specs: Windows 7
Hi! I have an Acer Aspire E1 (731-4699) laptop. Just recently, my screen started flickering. Black and white horizontal and vertical line also sometimes appear. If I adjust the screen, I can get a clear picture to eventually show up, it also does go black or white while tilting/adjusting.

I've connected it to in external monitor and it works fine. Backlight is working.

Computer has never been dropped. I have not opened up the computer yet. Not sure if it is a cable, or if I have to replace the monitor. What are your thoughts?

Thanks in advance for your help!

This will give you some idea what you are up against but this is a complete dismantle so you won't need to go that far - just to reach the ends of the cable:

Sounds like a cable issue. The opening and closing can damage or dislodge the cable.

Tip off is the change when moving the hinge.

Check the connectors at each end, otherwise replace the cable.

Where is the cable located? Is it easily accessible ? Also I tried finding one on eBay, and only found a USB audio board cable.
