Question about Toshiba Satellite A105-S4004 Notebook
I have had a video problem with my Toshiba A105 for about a year now. The first time it happened my laptop slid off the couch and landed on the ground on its side. After this incident the LCD would not work even though it would power on. I took it for repairs and they said a wire came loose. So after that it was fine. But one day I was working on it and the screen flickered. I then adjusted the angle of the screen back and forth and it stopped flickering. But soon after it went out completely. Now the funny thing is i can connect my laptop to a desktop monitor and it will work fine. So I Im sure its a connectivity problem. This has led me to believe the same thing happened as before. A loose wire. Ive been looking for a way to solve the problem without having to replace the LCD...and thats what Im trying to avoid.
Given the fact that you are able to get a picture on another monitor obviously means there is not a driver problem. Rather it is without doubt a hardware problem inside of your LCD. Inside the LCD there are two "inverters" that supply power. If one of them went out then you would not get any picture. This is not something you are able to repair yourself because of electrical danger. I do not believe you will have to replace the LCD but I would recommend taking it in to be repaired. If they recommend it be replaced then ask them to show you "exactly" what the is the problem. Inverters can be replaced so no need to replace the monitor.
