Advent 8109 - flicking screen

  Billy-1242449 10:27 25 Feb 08


I have an Advent 8109, when the AC adaptor is plugged into the back the screen flickers.

I presume this is down to a bad connection as the adaptor end gets very hot.

I have tried using a friends adaptor, the same thing happens.

Does anyone know the problem or how to solve it?

I personally think the connectors in the motherboard have gone to the battery connector, so they need to be resolderd or a new motherboard?

Thank you for you help in advance.

I recently had the job of repairing a laptop with a dodgy solder joint between the power connector and the motherboard. It took hours as I battled to get access to the part of the motherboard in question, and even then I had to do a bit of cannibalising. It is only a job you would want to do if you really enjoy a challenge, or if you were absolutely desperate to save money. I found this repairer just by Googling for "laptop repairs" click here
