Part of display flickers

A part of my display flickers.

If you would divide the screen into 5 columns, one of them, the second to the right, flickers heavily. Not all the time, but most of the time.

Sometimes shifting the screen can make it go away (coincidence?) or reduce it to a bright flickering. Usually, it is a flickering of black and white boxes and lines. The working lines in that area are half shifted to the right.

I guess because the flickering can go away, that it is due to the display or a cable. But the video card could also be the reason.

Does anyone had a similar issue and got it fixed?

Is this a good question?

Hi,

Try connecting an external monitor and check its' display. If it is OK that eliminates the GPU as the problem.

If the above is OK then you can concentrate on either the video cable or the screen.

The problem will be with the screen, not the video adapter or cable because these send pixels for the whole screen, one after another, down the same wires. The pixels are then spread out across the screen by electronics attached to the actual LCD panel. From your description, there will be 5 demultiplexers each feeding one fifth of the columns, one of which is faulty. There is a faint hope that you could fix it, temporarily at least, by inserting some packing in a strategic spot to increase the pressure on a poor contact, probably along the bottom of the screen below the faulty region, but a new screen is the real answer.

If you google for Acer Aspire V5-573G screen you should be able to find a replacement, or you could look on eBay for the same model of laptop with a different fault and do a swap. It shouldn't be too difficult, but if you replace just the LCD panel then take care - they don't like rough treatment.

Thanks for the advice. I was able to repair it now with a new screen bought on ebay. :)

I have problem with acer v5 573g. I can hear when windows load, but screen is black. Laptop have 2 graphics cards intel and nvidia. I tried to connect it to an external monitor via hdmi but nothing happened. The battery was removed and all attempts to reset did not help. Above all, the upper left corner of the display had colored vertical lines. It seemed as if it had been broken, but not. The laptop was not used for 6 weeks. One day I decided to check it out, everything was OK, but the next day the picture just disappeared.
