Which Cable for Sony Vaio

by GodsOrifice / December 30, 2012 8:30 AM PST

Hi, I have a Sony vaio pcg-3c2l which has been given to me unfortunately the screenhas feint lines across it and it flickers when moving the lid. My conclusion is that the lcd cable is dodgy, but i cant seem to find one can anybody hep with which one i need as there are some on ebay but none for the specific model im after, but i would imagine that a lot of the cables are the same so does anybody know which video cable i need as i would rather not have to take the laptop apart untill i need too. So would rather not have to dismantle just to find a part number if there even is one on the cable?
Please help if anybody has any knowledge of this and also if anybody knows of a good video guide to replacing the said cable.
Many thanks - GO

Can anybody help me with this - i assumed that somebody here would have a little more knowledge than me and be able to answer this or at least point me in the direction of somebody that might know where to find this cable.
Please help if you know where i might be able to resolve this - im pretty sure it is the cable but if somebody thinks otherwise please let me know but the symptoms are as outlined above.
Many thanks, Matt ConfusedCry

The problem is parts.

If Sony does not sell the part and it's a "cable" you scrounge on Ebay/Craipslist for either that part or the entire machine. I've had to get an entire laptop just for a piece part. There is nothing new going on here. Only your new tech would think they can get every part on its own.
