Answers :

I have found the problem with my r700 screen flick. If you hold the sides of the screen and pinch them it brightens which is a loose conection. This is a fault witht he design. You may notice that its quiet stiff to open the R700 screen and this puts stress on it. seeing most people open from the centre this bends the edges causing a loose conection.
You need to take out the LCD and check all conections are all in ok. Then make sure the LCD is firmly in place before putting back together and tight.
Mine is now working like when i bought it.
HAPPY DAYS !!!!!
There is a plug connection to the inverter board that works loose and causes the flicker and blackouts. Took me a long time to work out what the problem was. Just removing and refitting the plug will usually fix the problem for a week or so but the flicker returns.

2 months ago I made a plastic clip to hold the plug and wires still and there has been no problem ever since.

Power off batter out. Remove the little rubber bungs around the screen frame and remove the screws underneath. It is now possible to unclip the frame without dismantling anything else and remove it. Takes a little flexing near the hinges but it does come off.

The inverter is a long thin circuit board between the hinge points. remove the 2 screws holding it. now you can see the plug with 4 thin wires coming from it. That plug and the wires is the problem. The plug on the end with 2 wires is no problem.

I cut a U shaped piece of plastic and fitted it over the plug and socket to hold it closed and support the wires so that the terminations don't move when the laptop lid flexes.

Worked for me. Good luck.

My flat screen Samsung monitor flickers on and off and goes to black for a few seconds before flickering on and off again. I tried taking out the cable connecting it to the computer and it still flickers the analog/digital signal image at the top corner of the screen in the same way it flickers if the computer was still connected. I've connected a different monitor to the computer and it has shown a perfect image, so it has something to do with the monitor and not the computer signal.
