Before surgery connect an external monitor to the 15-pin connector and that will tell you whether you have an lcd problem or a video circuit problem. Post the result for more help. Steve Medley

Thanks for choosing fixya.com

It could be a few things, most likely it may be the backlight. The backlight is a small long bulb that sits at the bottom or top of the lcd screen to light it up so you can see whats on the screen.

Sometimes tilting the screen back in the right light you can see a very faint image on the screen.
The other option would be the board that converts the signal has malfunctioned on the computer. Both will require someone to check the laptop and possibly take the screen apart. If the laptop is under warranty you might be able to send it in for free to be fixed.

Otherwise a local shop should be able to help you with the issue.
Replacement bulbs range in price depending on the laptop anywhere from $50 up to $200 depending on how much the shop is going to charge for installation.

Hope this helps, feel free to ask further if needed.

55" LG LED television screen went dark


Sounds like Back - light problem. Check and replace damaged component/s at its back-light inverter board, or replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the inverter board as card basis.
http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
To some model sets; especially LED back-lighted types; the back-light inverter circuit will be part of the main power supply board [SMPS]. In such cases, the power supply board might need replacement. To some models sets, the back-light inverter and SMPS section circuit will be integrated at its main board itself. If so; the main board should be replaced. To some models of sets, all these section circuit will be integrated at its main board. If this is the case, you have to replace the main board.

Vista problem


select on the keypad the 'Fn' button, keep it pressed then normally on the lower right of the keyboard there will be keys marked with as olid star shape or an empty* shape or similair, while pressing the Fn key press one of the star iconed keys to up the brightness.

If still dark then the backlight on the screen needs replacing by a qualified repair shop

My screen went dark !


hello sir
To state the obvious, make sure the brightness is turned up. This is usually a function key on the keyboard. If this doesn't accomplish anything, then the backlight on the lcd may be damaged, and the lcd will have to be replaced.
thank you
