Connect an external monitor (crt or flat panel monitor) at the back of your laptop and see if the display is fine. if the display is fine on the monitor then it means to say that the lcd backlight is not working properly.

WOW!!!!!

I Had the same problem yesterday but i was able to fix it. What i did was to replace the back light. I also have a Toshiba laptop.(L35-S2173). What i did was to open the screen and to solder in a new Backlight. they cost only 10-15 dollars, which is much better compared to the $425 dollars that Toshiba was charging to repair an out of warranty Laptop. Most of the time, a bad backlight is what causes a dark screen, though it could be worse, like The Inverter could be bad, which would turn off the screen also.
To find some guides on how to Open up a toshiba laptop, visit this website http://www.laptoprepair101.com/laptop/2006/02/04/toshiba-laptop-disassembly-manuals/
And also visit this website to find out about Backlights and Inverters http://www.ccfldirect.com/

BUT WAIT, HERE IS SOMETHING THAT OCCURS MOST OF THE TIME, PEOPLE TEND TO DISABLE THERE LAPTOP SCREENS. YOU CAN ENABLE IT BY PRESSING Fn and F3 AT THE SAME TIME.(Fn+F3). IT WILL COME BACK UP BRIGHTLY. ANOTHER WAY PEOPLE DISABLE IT IS BY GOING INTP THEIR BIOS( BASIC INPUT OUTPUT SYSTEM) SETTINGS. IN A TOSHIBA LAPTOP, MOST OF WHICH USE PHOENIX AWARD BIOS, BOOT UP THE LAPTOP, THEN GO INTO THE BIOS SETTINGS BY PRESSING F2. THEN SCROLL LEFT USING THE ARROW KEYS TO THE POWER SETTINGS THEN ENABLE THE "POWER ON DISPLAY" OPTION. OH AND TO DO ALL OF THIS TO SEE IT, YOU MAY HAVE TO CONNECT THE LAPTOP TO ANOTHER SCREEN.

Magnets and electrical fields can affect screen color. Try moving it back to its original location and see if it clears up.

Thanks.

Laptop screen and external screen have lost color completely, only getting black and white


In my opinion if you have black and white screen internal and external screen while booting and while you are into windows desktop you have a faulty graphic card. Common fault on toshiba laptops.
Actualy the reason for their sales drops dramaticaly in the past few years ;)

Toshiba Satellite L35 screen color turned to pink.


If you have a LCD-screen, not an old-style CRT-screen, it is the data-cable, and its connections, that are not transmitting one of the 3 "primary" colours, e.g., mix red & blue & green to get white,
but mix only two of those colours, and you could get pink,
because the mixing is an "additive" process.

If you mix NONE of the 3 primary colours, you should get BLACK.
If you see GREEN, you're seeing ONE of the primary colours.

Sudenly the screen went black but in first sight the screen became with stripes/colors liners


The most likely culprit is your inverter. Most black or dark screens are caused by a faulty inverter. In rare cases (about 10%) the screen or backlight needs to be replaced.

Toshiba laptop screen


Can you see the toshiba loading screen when you first turn on the system? If yes, then load in safe mode and uninstall the driver and reload the video driver from toshiba's web site.

If you cant see video at all. (try) reseating the video cable to the motherboard, some laptops have a nasty tendency of having that cable come loose after beign opened and closed for awhile.
