Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook

2 Answers

I have hp pavilion dv6226us and when booted up the screen stays dark. You can see display only if you shine a light onto the screen. I tried to turn up the brightness and did't have any luck. Same thing and about 3 months past warranty end (of course). Yesterday I noticed the screen flickering a bit. Later, I went to use the laptop and the screen was very, very dark. I can barely make things out if a bright light is shined on the monitor. I've plugged an external monitor into the laptop and it works.

Pavilion g7-1173dx possible screen inverter issue?


The inverter is almost always below the screen in the bezel. You should only need a plastic pry bar (cost about $3) and you pop the bezel off from the screen side usually, you may need to check for screws under any rubber stops on the screen too. After the bezel is off the inverter should be on the bottom with two plugs into it. Unplug, pull it out and swap.

Hp Pavilion DV-4000 Screen


Are you saying the lcd screen is black? It seems like it booted up but nothing appears on the screen?

Shine a flashlight on the dark screen to see if you barelysee the icons on the desktop. If so, then the LCD Inverter is bad.

Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can beany kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vgacable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves yourvideo card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you rebootwithout you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN(Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correctkey for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key willnormally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

If you see no icons by shinning a flash light and the external monitor works,then your screen is bad. If you see no icons by shinning the flash lightand nothing shows on the external monitor, then most likely your video card isbad.

HP dv9000 getting power but dark monitor


It is probably that the inverter or the backlights have packed up

Turn the machine so that a strong light shines on the screen from the side you may then see the windows splash screen in the background.

Other check is to plug another monitor into the port on the laptop if that works then it is down to the inverter

No display on screen


It's either the backlight lamp or screen inverter is busted. Here's how to determine which is which:
  1. Grab a flashlight.
  2. Boot up.
  3. Shine the flashlight onto the screen.
  4. If you cannot see any display even a faint one, the screen inverter is dead, else the backlight lamps are busted.
  5. Replace which ever is the culprit.

My toshiba screen


Shine a torch light onto the screen. If you can see a faint outline of the images, it could indicate a back light failure. Unfortunately, you cannot fix this by yourself. You will need to take it for servicing.
