Hello,

It may be that the LCD is bad. One good way to test that is that if you have another external monitor and connect it to the external video output on the back of the laptop. Once you get it connected you will need to switch from the video output from the lcd to the external monitor. Usually there is a function key labeled Fn on the keyboard that you can use in conjunction with the function keys at the top of the keyboard. The function keys will have small icons above them. You can also refer to the manual for the combination. Once you find the combination you should be able to see the video on the external monitor. If this is the case either the lcd or the power inverter is bad.

Also, if you don't have a monitor, you can take the laptop in a dark room and start it. Once its been on for about a minute or you hear sound you can shine a flashlight into the LCD and see if you see the icons on your desktop. If so, it can be either the back light or the LCD, in which case the LCD can be replaced.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate this information.

Thanks

Hi! My screen has gone blank on my wharfedale docking station and it isnt responding to anything! I'm not sure what's wrong with it?!


The first place I would look is to the screen lighting mechanism. To prove the display is actually working, you should be able to catch a reflection of very dim images on the screen in bright light.
Hope this is of some use to you.

Hi there....i accidentally stepped on my laptop and the screen looks liks its cracked....the actual screen isnt cracked it just looks like it...kinda looks like you can see the inside of it...HELP!!!!


Yup, its cracked. The actual LCD (liquid cristal display) is inside the protective plastic casing and that is supposed to help keep it from being damaged. It has to be replaced..

Can see two or three lines on the screen of my lenovo laptop. I had the same problem earlier , but it was repaired at one of the ibm service centres during the warranty period. I tseems to have apperared...


sounds like a problem i have a lot, just get a new screen for it, scrap a old laptop or something, i may be wrong but isnt it usally caused by the little ribbion cables that connect the actuall lcd panel to the board on the lcd assembly getting damaged?

Screen black out


best way to trouble shoot a monitor is to plug into a different monitor do you have a desktop monitor you can try?also alot of laptops have a small button that turns monitor off when you shut it down around the base of the monitor make sure it isnt stuck.is it going into hibernation? try pulling the battery and unplugging it then plugging it back in.if it is stuck in hibernation that should work.

Dell Latitude D620 Gray Screen


I don't know about that particular laptop but it sounds like a loose connection between mainboard and screen plus a bad inverter (regulates and supplies voltage to the actual screen from the main power source). Laptops typically have the inverter hidden somewhere in the frame that surrounds the actual lcd screen. Sometimes this regulator is part of a small circuit board, sometimes it is not (I suppose it might be part of the actual lcd in some cases, but i've never seen that). I would investigate things further in that direction and just hope your lcd itself isnt bad.
