How come my screen started to flicker and now wont turn on anymore?

by on March 14, 2010

Q: I was recently using my laptop on my bed when all of a sudden my screen started to flicker and got squiggly lines run through the screen. Now when I power the laptop on all the lights turn on like they are supposed to and it sounds like it is running perfect but the screen absolutely will not turn on. The laptop is a Sony Vaio sz660n. What can I do to fix this?

    Sounds like there is some kind of an issue with the LCD screen on the laptop. If you still have some kind of warranty support on the laptop, you should contact Sony.

    If you don’t, you can either take it for repair or if you wish to attempt to repair it yourself you might be able to track down a replacement LCD screen part on-line. A google search for Sony Vaio sz660n replacement lcd turned up least one place that was selling that part. They wanted over $700 for the screen.

    If warranty support isn’t an option see if someone will quote you a repair price then see if it is worth it to fix it or not.
