The Inverter board that brightens the LCD is bad. It is easy to replace, if you are a little tech savvy. I purchase them from this site:

Dim screen on HP. Any diagnostics I can run to isolate the problem?


The problem is in the inverter board, "located below the screen" or the backlight behind the LCD display is faulty. In most cases the inverter is the issue and replacement only option, "be aware that high voltage is present when running"

Probable inverter board failure; this supplies high voltage to the fluorescent back light(s).

Hello !

Since an external monitor works, it is the display's backlight or inverter board.

If you were experiencing discoloration in the screen (pinkish lower light hues) before it failed, that would indicate a CCFL backlight issue. If the screen suddenly went dim on you rather than a slow degradation the inverter would be indicated.

In either case, a technician in your area should be able to help. Evaluate to see if the repair is cost-effective.

Hope this helps.

Dim display on laptop LCD screen


The part you need is called a CCFL Backlight. Basically, there are lights in the screen that back-light/illuminate the display. Over time it burns out and you are left with a dim and completely dull display. These are a pain to replace and expensive when bought from the manufacturer. But this site has a break down with dis-assembly instructions...if you want to try it.

Screen light has gone dim


Its either going to be a bad lcd or the inverter that controls the voltage going to the lcd is bad.

Screen is very dim..can barely see it..bright adjust doesnt help.


Hi, your LCD screen's backlight has gone out. This is a hardware failure, and you'll need to have it replaced or repaired. THe LCD screen consists of two parts, the LCD screen which creates images for you to see, and the backlight which forces light through the LCD so you can see it. Your backlight has gone out, so your screen still has images, but no light.

Dim screen


If its very dark and you can barely see anything its probably a bad back-light. I'd suggest to take it to your local Best Buy. And yes, they can look up PSP#'s with your credit card, but even easier by telephone number.
