Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
The lights of my laptop monitor is off i can see that there is a dispaly but the screen is dark and i cant see anything unless i really gazed,,,,
If it's under warranty you need to send it in. This is either a bad inverter or a bad backlight. If you can see windows and such, you can attempt to turn up the brightness, but it shouldn't be 'that' dark. I am absolutely positive it's your backlight. The only thing you may be able to do is to open up the laptop and unplug and replugin the inverter. I suggest you let a techie do that. However, if you really want to fix it yourself, just type your laptops model into ebay and search up inverter or backlight, and see what comes up. They shouldn't be more expensive than 40 bucks realistically. LCD's on the other hand are hella expensive. (Which, if you can see the display, like icons and such if you look closely, it is not the LCD which is the problem, just the backlight which typically rests on the bottom of the LCD bezel behind everything) The backlight is obviously important to see stuff that the LCD is producing. Also, one quick note, sometimes you can manually turn off and on your lcd inverter by pressing F1 or F2 while in the desktop while holding down the Fn key.
Hopefully this helps, remember to rate!
Stay spicy and happy lappying :)

I faced the same problem in HP Pavilion dv9350 model. I checked with one HP Partner (Sycom technologies, BSK, Bangalore, India) and it is of no use other than wasting Rs.500/- on just for checking the display with external monitor. They asked me to change the entire display which would cost around Rs.18,000/-
With some frustration, my friend simply removed the battery and put it back again. It surprised me lot.
Would suggest you people to remove the battery and put it back. Thank God if it works.
