G500s black display with backlight on

Sometimes my laptop's display starts showing lines on screen or discolored image .


(my config : i5 3230m ,8GB ram, 720m nvidia  with vga port)


Now it has started to show black screen. 


If i open and close the lid , sometimes the display comes back. 


If i put pressur on trackpad , the display goes black and comes back when hand is removed, anyone has any idea what might be the cause/issue !


I changed the display cable and check the display connector it is ok.

Re: G500s black display with backlight on

It sounds like an issue with the lid switch... The one that puts the notebook to sleep when you close the top down.

This may require a replacement part, or the entire top cover itself.
