HP DV5-1235dx

I also have a screen flickering problem. I use external monitor most of the time and dont have a problem with that. I need to find out what makes the notebook monitor turn on and off when opened and closed. Does anyone know if there is a switch? or contacts in the hindges? I have tried to squirt some contact cleaning in the hinge. Any information is appreciated.
I can open and partially close lid and make it quit.

LCD problem

Hi.. I think you have a problem with your LCD. Before you try to replace it. Open up your laptop and see if the contacts are loose or that the parts inside need cleaning. Here is a link to the site where it has instructions on how to open your laptop and how to replace your LCD:
