    PanP5 screen flicker/fail - loose video cable

    My PanP5's screen just started flickering while passing a certain point on the hinges. Occasionally, instead of flickering, the screen whites out (white slowly creeps in from the sides) and I can only get the display back from closing the lid and opening again.

    I'm guessing that the video cable is loose in the hinge area. This is most likely due to me picking the laptop up by the screen assembly a few too many times.

    Does there exist a guide for disassembling that area to reconnect the cable? I'd like to have an idea of where to start before I start covering my table with parts.

    Don't know if this helps you, but maybe something like this:

    Since System76 laptops are rebranded Clevo laptops, is there any chance that the Clevo model number is printed on the laptop? That would really help with finding a service manual.
