Emachines laptop screen blinks is a bad connection

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

No parts required to fix the blinking problem with emachine M2105
laptops and other similar models.  When the cover is opened or closed
the LCD screen would go on and off intermittent. Gets worse with time.
Solution is to clean a gold plated contact and the conductive tape that
it rubs on.  I scatched the gold contact and tape with an ice pick so
they would have better contact grip.  I then used very light sandpaper
about 3 scratches across on the gold.  The wires and connector were ok.
 Attached is a link to a good guide on how to disassemble the notebook.
 Read it carefully.
