Question about Toshiba Satellite A100-S8111TD Notebook

When I open the lid of my laptop fully, the screen goes black.

I only get the screen to illuminate if it is open less than 90 degrees. If I open any wider than that, the screen goes black.

The touch screen stops working when I open the lid past an angle of around 70 degrees


If this is a new laptop barely months old please contact the place you bought it. You will have a warranty on it, you will be able to get it replaced under warranty. It would be pointless anyone trying to help you fix it as it may void your warranty

Sounds like the cable feeding the inverter is either faulty or has a bad connection. You will need to take the laptop to bits. See utube video.

REplace the flexible cable that feeds the screen from the motherboard if it is damaged or just plug the cable in as it may not be connecting properly.

When the screen is tilt back more than 90 degrees shuts off


Look closely at the area where the computer "folds";
there's a small sensor that should trigger when you *CLOSE* the lid -- perhaps, something is triggering that sensor (a small pin) when you're exceeding 90 degrees, putting the computer to "sleep".

Dell Inspiron 1300 - When I re-open the lid,Screen stays Black !


Your laptop either goes to hibernate or sleep mode when you close the lid. Then, when you open the lid up, the screen is still off because your pc already hanged/froze and could not wake up at all (usual problem in vista). Off course, hard shutdown would fix it. But actual fix is under power options on your control panel. Check your current scheme and edit it. There are options there that you can select to "do nothing when closing the lid"

Hope this helps

If I open my Satellite A105 display too far, it goes black.


Hi, This is definitely a loose connection problem.
Does the screen go completely black or just a part ?
If its just a part, LCD is defective. You may have to change the whole LCD screen. You can get one for ~180$ from ebay
If the whole is turning off, I guess the power cable might be little loose.
You can open the LCD panel and check if you know what you are doing.
Else take it to a normal technician and ask him to open the LCD panel and see it.
