If it's more than 3 years old, it might need a new "cold cathode fluorescent" tube.

If you have hands as steady as a surgeon, aren't afraid of high voltage or flying glass, and know how to solder, you might be able to purchase a lamp on digikey dot ca or dot com for fifteen bucks.

Why is my laptop screen blacked out?

You did not post the model number but the problem is most likely the inverter. You can hook it to an external monitor in the mean time if you post the model, Ill link to the inverter.

How much need to fix proken screen of laptop

Price of LCD screen for laptop? I've seen them from $60 to $240.
Just depends on what laptop it is.

Cost of labor makes it more expensive.

You can do this. It isn't tough at all.

Post the laptop manufacturer name, and model number.

HP? Okay. Then look at the Bottom of the laptop, and in the white Service Tag. State what the Product Number is.
P/N = Product Number

The laptop screen is unreadable it is so dark - have to use a flashlight and it is barely legible. Is this fixable? model T60 Lenovo

Your backlight or inverter has gone bad. You can purchase a new inverter or backlight on ebay (if you are mechanically inclined and know which is broken) or call Lenovo support to see how much their repair service will cost. The LCD screen is still working since you mentioned that you can still barely make out the screen.

Strange noise when door is open, light barely flickers, LED out.

I would try replacing the bottom door cam assembly. I have also seen the actual cabinet making a popping noise during opening which is there is no cure for that.

The screen on my laptop computer has become dark. If I shine a light on the screen I can barely see the display and if I connect an external monitor to the computer I get a display on the remote monitor....

The LCD display connection is loose. Try reconnecting this and the display will be fine. The connection should be at the top of the base right above the keyboard under the plastics.

Screen Black can barely see images when boot up

One of four things possible, bad lcd bulb, bad inverter that powers the bulb, or bad mainboard that powers the inverter (rare problem).... and sometimes, bad lcd cable, also rare.

To test, you need a good bulb to plug into this inverter and see if it lights. If it doesn't, then your problem is most likely a bad inverter board. Simply shop online somewhere like eBay to find a replacement. Generally they cost around $30 USD shipped. And you can find it located in the lid, at the bottom of the lcd. You will need to remove any screws in the plastic bezels and carefully pop the bezel off to gain access to it.


One other thing I should mention, I have seen some laptops that have an lcd cutoff switch, or hibernate switch. When you close the lids, its will either put the laptop into a standby state, or it will simply turn the backlight off on the lcd. I've seen those switches get stuck. Note - not all laptops have them.
