Ajk,

If you need/want the unit to remain portable, you'll have to get the light replaced. If you feel comfortable working on electronics and if the tube is available to the consumer. Then you might be able to do the task yourself. In order to advise you better on part availability and replacement instructions I would need to have the brand and model # of the laptop.

Now if you just need to be able to see the screen and portability is NOT an issue, then there is a vga connector on the back of your laptop. Plug an external monitor into that connector and turn on the laptop. If the image doesn't come up on the monitor immediately then push <FN> and <F5> at the same time until the display comes up.

Hope this helps
Dave

It's acting like the juice is drained in the battery. Are you sure it's charged? Do you have a spare battery you can swap out?

Some of them come with two. I actually have the same series laptop (a Pavilion dv6258se, 6000 series), and they can be a little flaky.

I also had an issue where my HP power cable (that connects the laptop to the wall outlet) was faulty, and needed to be replaced, because it stopped charging the battery. I ended up purchasing a generic replacement power cable on eBay.

Cant see anything but white screen after bootup


Plug in an external monitor and use the F key with the FN to toggle between lcd and external monitor. On my laptops It is the FN and F5. If the external monitor works the problem is the the inverter board, the flex ribbon cable or the LCD. If the external monitor is also messed up then the problem is probably the video card/ motherboard.
