Question about HP Pavilion zt1170 Notebook
My father had my laptop, used it about 30 times... and then dropped it. Since then, the backlight on the monitor barely works. It's mostly black, but sometimes, I can see a shadow of what is supposed to be on screen. He bought a new laptop and this one sat for over a year. He just gave it to me and now it's my problem. Is there any way I can change it myself? I'm very capable and look forward to any excuse to use a tool.
I have looked at the monitor casing and there is no obvious way to get in. Can I access what I need to replace by removing the battery and unscrewing there?
First. you will need to disassemble the frame around, not easy, then you can access the screws holding in the screen. take them out, unplug the invertor, and screen cable. Flip the screen around and you will see a shiny foil looking paper plastic, to access the back light you will need to peel the foil back wear the light is. its easy to locate, then replace and back step.
