Having problems with your E-Machines M5310 Notebook ?

My backlight keeps going out...and then back on...then out... what to do?


Answers :

Sounds like a bad LCD to me.

First check warranty status by calling manufacturer as if you work on some of this stuff yourself you voice the warranty!!

If this is in the laptop, you might want to reseat the lcd cables to make sure they are screwed down snug. If this does not fix it, replace the LCD panel.
If this is a desktop LCD i would try another one. If the other lcd works, replace the LCD.
