Having problems with your Acer Extensa 5420-5687 Notebook ?

Screen flickering My Acer Extensa 5420-5687 screen flickers at various times. Any remedy?


Answers :

Replace the LCD inverter board.
That really depends on when it flickers, does it flicker when you move the display open or closed or when you press some part of the laptop?

If it happens when you press a part of the laptop, the display cable could be loose, thats unlikely.

I recently had a similiar problem with a toshiba laptop, the screen would flicker when pressed on the bottom left side of the laptop.

I checked the wires and they where fine, in the end I seem to have fixed the issue by pressing on the top cover where the issue happens and at the same time from the bottom from the same spot, what I did on that laptop, there was a cover that I could remove so I could press directly on the mainboard, pressing directly on the mainboard with my fingers and at the same time pressing down from the top seem to have fixed the problem on that laptop.
