Toshiba Satellite C55-C/L50-C/P50-C, 64 bit Win 8.1. Or at least that's what the manual calls it !
This is my wife's laptop and the screen has started either flickering or not displaying. This seems to be dependent on the angle of the screen and when it is displaying the display is perfect.
I have not yet opened it up but expect to find that the problem is due to the video cable to the screen, either loose at one end or the other or possibly damaged. I would be inclined to suspect the screen end because she has the bad habit at times of hauling it around by the screen especially if she is using it to watch internet TV.
If it turns out the cable is damaged is the, presumably, ribbon cable a generic commodity or is it likely to be a Toshiba part ? In other words, can I source cable fairly easily or am I going to have to go to Toshiba for one ? Anybody know ?
