Question about HP Pavilion dv1000 Notebook
When I boot up my laptop the screen comes on but very faintly. There is no light coming on behind it how can i fix it.
It is either the inverter board or the bulb
If it looks pink in color than it is the bulb and that can be quite the intensive project to replace
If it is the inverter board than that is not so bad and you can pick up an inverter board on eBay usually for around $10 to $20 and that usually installs right under the LCD screen (usually screwed to the LCD screen)
The inverter board is what powers the light bulb the data cable is totally separate function.
If you can see data on the screen with a flashlight but there is absolutely no light coming from the screen at all ever than it is probably just the inverter board
But there is a possibility that you could order the inverter board and have it turn out to be the bulb and if that is the case then unless you are very comfortable taking apart laptops then maybe a new screen would be best since you practically have to take apart the LCD to change the bulb.
But screen cost around 100 to 150 on eBay so if you decide to do that then might as well try for a deal like this: (I just spotted this on eBay and it is for entire new top half of laptop with glossy screen and inverter board wire harness and all for the same price or less than just the screen http://cgi.ebay.com/HP-dv1000-Pavilion-14-1-BrightView-Glossy-LCD-screen_W0QQitemZ310102538774QQihZ021QQcategoryZ31569QQssPageNameZWD1VQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem#ebayphotohosting
That is guaranteed to solve your problem for sure.
