So, recently my laptop screen (HP Envy M6 1205DX with Windows 8) has been randomly turning white. Sometimes it takes a little while and sometimes it happens pretty quick, with the only difference is that it seems to happen slightly more frequently when my laptop is plugged in. If I shut the lid and open it back up, sometimes it fixes the issue. If it doesn't, I have to switch my video signal from "PC screen only) to a different signal and it works again. Until it starts turning white again.

 

I know it's not graphics card/chip related because it doesn't happen when I have it plugged into an external moniter; only on it's own. I'm assuming it's a screen/LCD cable issue? If so, how do I tell if it's one or the other? I found a replacement screen on Amazon for a decent price, but I don't want to get the screen if it's a cable issue. No need to spend any extra money.

 

Thanks for the help guys

If its a ribbon cable issue then generally moving the screen to a more closed or open position will cause it to either flash the screen or fix it for a while. If movement between the ribbon at the hinge between display and laptop doesnt fix the issue then either its finally a permanent break in the connection or the display itself is bad.

So, since closing my laptop and opening it up causes it to be temporarily fixed, does that mean it's a bad screen then? Moving it to a more open or closed position doesn't do anything; it only fixes it if I close it completely and open it back up.
