It's the Inverter, you have to change it. It's a common problem with laptops.

Sony Vaio E Series VPCEH37FX screen goes dark, but fine otherwise


If you can see faint dim images on the screen, then your back light or power inverter has failed. They are not adjustable or repairable and must be replaced. If you can't see anything on the screen, the LCD has failed and must be replaced. Sometimes it's hard to see the dim images so use a flashlight to help determine if there is any image on the lcd.

Dell f700 powers up but screen remains blankno picture at all


If you still can see an faint or very dim image on the screen.
Use a flashlight to see if you can see a dim display on the LCD.
If you cant see anything it isn't worth fixing, If you can then you need to change the inverter. You can get them for around $20.

If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp.

Screen stays black when power comes on


Audio really does not matter here---in a very dark room shine a flashlight at the screen with set on to see if you see a very dim image on the screen or not.

I have a Toshiba Satellite A55-S1063 the scrren is dim but I can still see using a flashlight. I have had the back light replaced once it worked great for about 2 weeks and then went back to being very...


Hello !

Since the screen is dim, the display's inverter board needs to be replaced.

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.

Hope this helps.

LCD dim.


If you have replaced the screen and the inverter, about the only thing left is the flexible cable from the monitor to the video card. I take it that the Fn+F8 makes no difference?

Dim picture


This is the way how to examine where the problem is. If the screen is going dark. You have to check that you can see the image on screen by shining a flashlight into the screen, not directly but find the best angle to the screen and take a look very closely. If you can see the icons (Power on both cpu and monitor), there will be a minor problem. Like me, I can see window image using flashlight and check lamps inside. Some of them were broken. If you cannot see any icon on the screen. I would say that there are some problems with inverter board. If you have soldering tool and want to fix it by yourself, check the caps first. It may cause this problem. Some caps might show leaking or dark spot on the board because of too high temp. If you don't have soldering tool, you better go get a technician to do so.

Screen is on but picture dose not show... cables connected


Solution, replace monitor with a new one.
I have found, at my shop, that getting parts for these things can be pricey and by the time I charge labor as well, could just buy a new one.
Probably a bad internal power supply or the inverter that powers the bulb(s) went out, which is sometimes built in with the power supply itself. If, and I stress IF, the parts are available, be prepared to pay more than its worth.
Pick up a new one, shop around on different brands. Some manufacturers offer 3 year warranties. ;)
