Try connecting an external monitor to the Dell Inspiron 2200. If the monitor display is fine, then your laptop’s LCD display panel is defective. If the monitor display is dark, problem is with either the video card or motherboard located inside your laptop.
Here’s a link to disassemble the LCD unit: http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/ins2200/en/SM/display.htm#1084976

I have a Sony KDF-60XS955 tv. It won't power on,


I have that manual. There are three lights to the left of the power button. One is labled LAMP. The manual states "The projection lamp, which illuminates the picture, has a limited life. If the screen becomes dark, the color looks unusual, or the LAMP indicator on the front of the LCD projector TV flashes, it is time to replace the lamp with a new one (not supplied). Use a Sony XL-2200 replacement lamp (not supplied) for replacement. Use of any other lamp may damage the LCD projection TV." I also found in a different page " LAMP LED lights up in red when the lamp for the light source has burnt out." I guess burnt out would be extream. I found one other if you had opened the light bulb cover and didn't close it properly. " If the lamp cover is not reattached securely, the self-diagnostic function may be triggered and the POWER/STANDBY indicator flashes three times." You can down the sony manual at http://www.docs.sony.com/release/KDF60XS955.pdf

No brightness to the screen background is dark.


Take the laptop into a darkened room.
Does the correct image show, but very dim ?
If so, then the "back-light" in the LCD has failed.
It's about a $20 part, and it will take a qualified technician less than one hour ($60?) to disassemble the laptop, replace the part, reassemble, and then test the laptop.

My Dell laptop screen blacks out when I turn it on. And, I can't find my installation CD's. Please Help.


If you hear the hard drive spinning and you think Windows is working but you can't see an image then :-
You could have a defective screen - a defective inverter or a CCFL lamp or simply the video cable needs reseating. After reseating the video cable and the problem is still there then :-
To determine if you have a LCD screen or video card problem, read this and follow the instructions.

Defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom:

  • Screen flashs on red/pink and off.
  • Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal.
  • Picture flickering with dim display or appear black.
  • Picture flickering on and off.
All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp

Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power it up, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight.

Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.
