    this is an LED screen , not an LCD, LED dont use an inverter, LCD does

    It's strange that a 15.6" LED screen works and not the original size ,did you try the 15.6 before the 16 as this could have damaged the video cable or motherboard connector.
    Since the 16" doesnt work anymore it could be that the motherboard connector itself is not functioning properly.

    have tried 3 16.0 screens 2 video cables all in working order. tried the 16 first . it is very strange. no splash screen, just what seems to be cycling, from dark to slowly brighting to a white cloud like image to the slowly turning like a blue, dark blue till it turns black, then starts over again with the slow brighting white cloud like??????

    15.6 screen works great as well as the external monitor.

    motherboard led plug looks good, no discoloration, pins good, looked mb over for burn marks, ect, nothing..... even tapped on the board all over for any changes in screen, nothing.... could it be possiblily bios? have flashed back to poduction ver. still the same. dont make sense????

  • Jamie Christinson Feb 21, 2012

    screen seems to flicker to when it goes thru this cycle

  • Fabio Feb 24, 2012

    thats very odd and seems like a nightmare ,is the one you replaced with exact same number also from the same manufacturer?
    Just because the connector on board looks fine doesn't mean it is ,it could not be outputting enough voltage or the correct signal on that screen.

If you can see the image on the screen with a flashlight then it's a problem with the inverter.

Good Luck

If you have replaced the screen and the inverter, about the only thing left is the flexible cable from the monitor to the video card. I take it that the Fn+F8 makes no difference?

How many dvds does it take to make a back-up recovery for a toshiba a665-s5179 laptop?

Depends on the size of your HDD. At 4.5 Gb a disk, do the math. Too many. Use either an external drive or a tape back up unit. I have 3 drives in my system. One for the OS and Intregral software. One for applications and one for backups.

A lot of the models in the A665 laptop series have a sensor and software installed on the computer that senses when the computer is motion ( a g-sensor) the point of this sensor is to lock the platters in the hard drive to prevent the most damage possible if the laptop is dropped. you should be able to access toshiba software manager for this and either disable or remove the notifications.

My Toshiba A665-S6086's screen was blue and a redish pinkish earlier today and I have rebooted it a bunch of times. I can't figure out what the problem is. Is it something with the backlight?

Hi. Thanks for your question.
It is more likely that Inverter went is in your screen. They are relatively cheap and not that complicated to replace. To determine that it is your screen that is at fault you need to connect your toshiba to external screen. If the same things happen it is your Graphics card that's at fault. If it don't it is your inverter or connection/cable. When backlight goes bad entire screen becomes dark/darker then normal. Please see this video to have a look at inverter and where it is in your screen to get an idea.
Do not hesitate to ask more questions if this is needed. Thank You for using FixYa
