Default Compaq Presario C700 screen problem


The screen on my Compaq Presario C700 has gone green and fractally.It looks a bit like its eaten someones' acid. Not ideal, and is a bit migraine inducing...

It comes back to life if I tilt the screen right back, which says to me its a loose connection somewhere. Its not the motherboard, as I have checked it on an external monitor and is fine...


I have disassembled and re-assembled and its still the same, and now have a query...

Behind the screen, along with the ZIF connector that connects at the top , there is a tiny white plug on a silver cable that isnt connected to anything, and I cannot see anywhere it should live. Is this for a camera maybe, or is this maybe my problem?

Please, any advise would be massively appreciated. The disassembly manual on HPs website was completely useless, it appears to be for a different model than the one I asked for...

I look forward to your reply

This is a general guide but it's very good, may help you identify what should go where.

I can't tell from your description what exactly the plug you're talking about does. If it's unplugged entirely then it might not be related to your problem. I would think this is more related to a bad/loose video cable or motherboard connection than anything.
