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.

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 .
