Question about Toshiba 14" LCD Monitor

Open Question

Toshiba Satellite Laptop monitor has discoloration and static

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?

SOURCE: Laptop monitor blacks out, but when you hit the toggle....

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.

I agree with micromend on the clone power supply. It sounds like perhaps the voltages aren't right or the wave form is messing up the power parts of the laptop.
I dont necessarily agree about the cmos battery but then Toshiba could be different then the ones I have used in the past. I havent tried it lately but you used to be able to run computers with no cmos battery at all. it just meant you had to redo the date and any custom bios changes at boot up. Please clarify this micromend. You cant boot a toshiba with no cmos battery?
I have a bad battery in one of my old compaqs and it still works. just have to set the date whenever I boot it up. (I been lazy to take it apart despite having piles of these batteries laying around lol)

SOURCE: laptop screen is dead

this is the problem of the LCD screen . open the laptop and measure the voltage at inverter board .input should be 12volt and output should be 600volt . if voltages are not OK , then check the components , if voltages are OK , then CCFL (cold cathod fluroscent lamp) tube is faulty. replace it .

If the screen is white, try separating your wires behind the computer. Simple but stops the cross-talk of signals.

I have a Samsung LED computer monitor (model S23A300B). The monitor connects to my Macbook air. The Samsung monitor recently stopped showing the picture on my laptop. Instead, red, green, blue and white...

Try the plugging the setup into a different monitor to eliminate the lead however it sounds like the monitors died. With cost of screens even if you can get hold of one you'll be better off getting a new monmitor.

Look like your monitor is gone bad on you. I am not sure if you can get the parts you need. I would get another monitor form a friend and see if your monitor is gone bad. if it is I would get me a replacement. in the long run you will save some money.

My computer monitor is a black screen....the light is lit solid green and I can hear the software playing just no picture

If the light is green, I suspect that the backlight has gone out on you. This could also be caused by you having the brightness turned all the way down.

My screen is bigger than the monitor for my toshiba satellite laptop.

What is happening is the settings that you have set on your laptop are too high for the monitor to recognize.
You will need to reduce the resolution settings in you display properties which can be found by going to start-settings-control panel- display- and in the display area choose settings.
Some video cards will let you adjust each item. Some you have to use the same resolution on both screens.
