Odd problem on laptop monitor

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Here's a video of what it looks like, since I can not describe it in words.

I've opened up the whole thing, checked cables etc, it all looks good. Made no difference. I'm hoping that the problem is in some component that I have overlooked, or something cheap that I can do, rather than spending $80 on a replacement LCD.

It doesn't happen when hooked up to external monitor btw.

Any ideas what this is?

I'm guessing thats LED backlit right? looks very much like the LED backlighting has unstable power going to it, so i'd guess the problem is with the power inverter.

The backlight would only determine brightness from what I've read, and from my research if the power inverter was bad then the screen would be fine but very very dim.
