Question about Toshiba 14" LCD Monitor
The white areas are pinksih and the black areas bright neon green. The problem has gone away on its own but comes back if the laptop monitor screen is moved, as if the problem is a cable of some sort in the hinge. I've plugged the computer into other monitors and know it's working fine. Is it worth fixing the monitor on the laptop by paying someone? Can I do it on my own?
Sounds like you need a new Switch. Oxidation has probably built up in the switch. It can be fixed. Probably shop around for a certified tech who can replace it. The switch is cheap, Labor is starting around $65 - $90. You said you can faintly see the desktop. This is the invertor board inside the LCD assembly that causes this. Again if it needs to be replaced, the invertor is fairly inexpensive, labor isn't. The technician that ckecks out the laptop can determine what it needs. Yea, your right, it is a good laptop and it is worth fixing. Just a heads up, if the tech says you need a new motherboard, he's lying, find another tech.

If your system won't display anything w/o the external monitor. there's something wrong with the LCD's backlight. you may have to contact your laptop's manufacturer and check if this laptop is still under warranty. you may have to get the lcd replaced.

SOURCE: Laptop monitor goes black
If you're working on the computer when that happens, it's not probably a power setting. Try to update your BIOS to the most current version at the toshiba support website (support.toshiba.com) & see what happens. Fixes the issue most of the time
I hope this helps.
