    hp compaq 6710b screen

    school has about 15 of these laptops and probably 5 of them have developed the same screen problem:

    Image is produced intermittently and will appear to roll, if you adjust the screen angle you can find a "sweet spot" where the image is displayed properly, this works for a short time before the screens become more or less unusable.

    wondering if its the ribbon or the connector on the back of the screen that is failing? ribbon being a cheapish fix, screen probably meaning they are on their way out.

    any thoughts?

    It's likely to be a connector/cable rather than the screen.

    We had this problem was the connectors at the back of the screen, if you undo a few screws you can take the panel off near the screen and press down on the connectors to see if this solves the problem! The laptops were quite old so will choose to soilder them ourselves, solved the issues for a few months then we replaced.

    Must be common fault on them.
