Having problems with your HP Compaq Presario V2000 Notebook ?

My laptop monitor flickers

\015 I bought the laptop for my father 3 years ago but it developed the flickering problem one year after. The flickering became unbearable one time but later sent to a repair shop which seemed to have fixed problem. According to them, a cable was loose. \015\012\015\012Then, the problem returned. The flickering is serious when the machine is turned on but it gradually disappears after awhile. I can complete get rid of the flickering if I turn off the graphics card driver but then the laptop can't go to standby mode or hibernation.\015\012\015\012I opened up the laptop down to the point where I have to unplug the cable from monitor to the motherboard, at which point I stopped because this is only cable I see and it was pretty fit.\015\012\015\012The laptop runs on XP without most uptodate drivers that I can found at hp support website and even graphics card vendor (I believe it is Intel). I flash BIOS with most current version. \015\012\015\012I basically did every damn thing I can think of. It is embarrassing for me to ask for help considering I work with software professionally but. I am basically ran out of ideas.\015

Answers :

Don't worry about embarrassment, there's a world of difference between software and hardware.

The flickering is most likely either a loose wire or more likely a partially snapped dry solder joint where the florescent panel behind the screen is connected. Since the laptop lid is opened and closed frequently, even the smallest of movements over several years can stress a dry solder joint to the point where it cracks.

Unfortunately it's not a user serviceable thing, but you may not need to return it to HP - a local specialist in flatscreens or more ideally monitors is likely to be able to mend it. Since it's so far out of warranty anyway it's not too much of a risk to use someone not HP approved since they can't invalidate a warranty that's long expired, so get your local phonebook out and start searching for someone who can give you a quote on a flatscreen backlight repair.
