    Hello,
    My client's son has an Acer Travelmate 250 with a display issue. When you turn it on, all you can see is a white background with lines sporatically flashing like it is trying to display something but no images are showing. If I apply a little pressure to close the display but not so much to actually move it at the hinges, the display works perfectly. Is there an easy fix for this besides pushing it against something on the desk to apply a little pressure?
    Thanks in advance,
    James

    Not really, to fix it you will most likely have to re-seat the ribbon that connected it to the motherboard and that will mean dismantling.

    Thank you for your speedy reply. I guess dismantling would be very time consuming.
    If it were mine, I'd attempt. Probably better to just leave it alone.
    Thanks again.
