    Help Asus X501a display issue

    odd one but first time its happened for me, mate has an asus x501a

    the lcd flickers on and off when lifting and closing the lid but you cant get it open enough to where its at a usable angle , eg 90 degrees to the keyboard

    took the frame off and unscrewed from frame moved to just over 90 degrees and screen was still on couldnt try any more due to lack of cable

    so im thinking lcd is fine and either a cable is nipped (looked fine) or there is an issue with the screen off switch or mainboard unless im wrong ?

    anyone have a service manual for where this switch is (presume it has one) or any other ideas ?

    cheers peeps

    If its not obvious its probs a magnetic read switch.
    Did you notice a magnet on the bezal when you striped it down ?

    Had this before another make/model laptop, it was the connector into the screen that was a bit dodgy and the slightest wiggle moves the wires which pulled pushed the connector and thus made the picture go, take it out give it a blow and reseat it and tape it down ;-)
