Back light failure or something else?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

When i turn the laptop off or just the screen for a moment, the screen is fine anywhere from 10 minutes to longer then the corner and bottom half goes dead again. As shown in the photo

 

Can anyone help diagnose what is wrong here. I asked someone who repairs laptops and such what this could be and he says it's the gpu failing. Now i don't know if it's true or if he is just trying to make a quick buck. I don't believe this is a sign of gpu failure but i dont know much about the subject 

 

Any advice would be appreciated

Then they're either not repairing anything or trying to fuck you up, it's pretty obviously a failing backlight.

Yeah the panel is damanged in some way. Like pressure damage. Try pressing the bezel where the black spots is and see if it lights up.

I've tried that but sadly it doesn't so anything, though the strange part is if you turn the screen off, wait a moment then turn it back in it works perfectly fine for a short while
