Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite M45-S2692 Notebook ?

Display flickers and has horizontal lines

\015 Toshiba Satellite M45\015\012\015\012One day three horizontal lines appeared on the display and the bottom tool bar sunk to the bottom of the screen (meaning I could no longer see the toolbar but I could click on the start button etc. if I moved my cursor below the last visible part of the bottom of the screen.)\015\012\015\012However, once I tilted the screen forward a little bit, the problem went away. It gradualy started doing this more often and eventually I couldn't fix it by moving the screen anymore.\015\012\015\012I removed the cover from around the screen and touched the inverter chip and the problem went away for a day or two and then started again. I replaced the wiring harness that goes from the screen to the plug next to the left speaker but that didn't help. I'm gonna try putting a new inverter in next I guess.\015\012\015\012Has anyone had a problem like this before? I don't want to buy a new lap top because I'm pretty sure this problem is fixable!\015

Answers :

When you had the screen out, did you check that the wider flat cable going up in the middle of the screen was tightned and connected properly?
