Hp pavillion dv8210us sceen is very dark, can see light shadows

Everything else besides the lcd monitor works fine in my lap top when pluged into an external monitor, but without it the screen is very very dark, as if it was turned off. Also if when I look very very close at the lcd I can see a shadows of the windows.

I think I need to replace the screen but its to expensive and i did not give it any physical damage, I need a second opinion.

My HP Pavilion dv8210us has white column that blocks out start and icons on screen, everything else I can see any ideas how to fix?


try displaying monitor on external screen. if it is present then it is the video card and motherboard failure.

if it is not present on external screen then it most likely needs a new lcd.

hope this was helpful

If the system still works on an external monitor and functions normally otherwise, you might be able teo replace the LCD assy for about $150.

If the system no longer works on external either, then I'd say the system is no longer viable as an item to repair as it will be cheaper to replace it then to repair it. (New laptops start at around $500)

Screen is dark (like there is no power on it)


Well if you take a strong light like a flashlight and you can see a faint image. Then the lamp (CCFL) or the lamp's inverter has failed. It should work fine with an external monitor. Still not good though and usually expensive to repair (unless it is still under warranty).

Check ebay, look for a whole top panel with broken LCD glass. Somebody usually parts out the whole thing. If you were in the states it would be easy to find a shop or scrap computer parts store. But overseas I am not sure of how it is done there.

Laptop screen in complete darkness but external monitor works fine


Make sure to check that it's plugged in on both ends - at the motherboard and on back of the screen.

The other possibility is that your inverter got shorted out somewhere along the way. Try shining a flashlight on the screen - if the cable is plugged in ok you will see a faint imge.

No Display


First make sure everything else is getting power and operating okay, and that it is only the LCD display that is non-functional.

If you get no video signal or power at all, even at boot time, you probably have a dislodged ribbon cabling or power connection. Usually when LCD monitors go bad they show colour banding or all white, etc., but usually continue getting power.

As a last resort, try disassembling the lower case (with the power disconnected and the battery out of course) to expose the LCD monitor mounts, and then following the wiring from the screen into the laptop and check for anything loose or disconnected. You could also have a loose ribbon cable going into the LCD array, which will require disassembling the LCD cowling and mounts.

If you are handy and comfortable with electrics and find nothing loose, put the battery in and test the power line going to the LCD backlight, which should be getting above 7V (I think). Below that and you either have a bad video controller or bad wiring/solder joints somewhere. Otherwise, if the unit has been dropped or had a hard life generally, it could also be the connections between the LCD connector bus on the monitor array and the array itself. As a last resort, try unplugging and reconnecting all ribbon and connector cables, cleaning the exposed brass coloured runners lightly with rubbing acohol or even a pencil eraser.

Good luck...
