occasionaly flickering black lines - dodgy ribbon? replacement?

hi all,

 

I have the P6661 and it has just started the odd flickering on the screen - think the ribbon needs replacing. Is this a massive hassle on this laptop does anyone know? Some are soldered in. If possible, has anyone done this before? Any idea on which to buy???

 

Thanks in advance guys n gals.

Hi @seanpenn21 ,

 

can you please provide the MSN number of the unit?

Also, do you have any photos of the screen whilst it is flickering?

 

Regards,

Gehringer

hiya, I have no photos or video of the flicker, in all honesty I haven't noticed it as much recently... odd.

 

the SN is 16CPE6023662

 

thanks for your time

Hi @seanpenn21 ,

 

if you haven't experienced a lot of that recently, it may have been an update issue.

 

Please let us know if the issue returns.
