Display flickers and darkens

\015 My display oftentimes flickers and darkens. It will remain that way till I rock it back and forth. I'm a pc technician but I don't have a repair manual for my pc. Please help.\015

Answers :

There are two main possibilities.

1) The cable between the inverter and backlight burn on the screen is loose. You will need to open screen to reseat it.

The other is that the inverter or backlight is dying and your display will stay dark sooner or later.

If you find this helpful please rate so.

Thanks

My Studio Laptop 1537 display will not illuminate. In the right light at the right angle, I can barely make out what is on the screen. I noticed, prior to complete darkening of the display, that the intensity of the display would flicker randomly between brilliant and a dimmer intensity. I also noticed a high frequency noise when the dimmer intensity would dominate. I had this problem one year ago, and Dell said they replaced the LCD display, but my warranty has expired.
