I have an old atom processor based netbook which i plan to use for my embedded projects now. But screen flickering issue gets very irritating. After multiple attempts of flap opening and closing and reboots the screen works, sometimes doesn't. I want to solve the problem. My guess is it probably the back light LED, but i don't know how to approach to solve the issue.

 

You can get better idea from the video link below.

PS:- I have posted the same qury on reddit as well but didn't get any response so approaching this forum for answers.

Slapping it around / opening and closing , getting frustrated wont help. { it ,ll get worse }.

The Video show a obvious loose connection or part broken cable within the unit.

 

It will need to be disassembled and checked , all wiring , connections , so forth.

There are a multitude of videos { Youtube } to pull apart / inspect / and reassemble and test.

Hey @Havachat. Thank you for your response. Well i dont know ...probably i was feeling lazy or little scared about "What if i land up screwing the whole system in the process".

 

But after reading your comment i thought "Hey, I have to give it a try." and I did and it solved the problem.

 

As you said it was bad LCD connection. The metallic frame was not latched, hence not providing the mechanical stability it needed. I just had to push that latch and viola...perfectly working laptop.

 

Thank you again.
