Fault on screen everything very faint

Toshiba ps120u-00djx7. The screen is almost blank desktop items very faint.
in the past I have turned the laptop off then on a couple of times and it would work. also a couple of times I have had the laptop laid flat then started it up and it would come on.
I have not used it for over 6 months and it is just faint now all the time. when I start it up it looks faint but within seconds the screen near enough disappears.

When i turn on pc monitor flashes then goes black. i can see faintly that it is on.


If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp. Please click on this link and follow my instructions to identify the fault and possible fix :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3598095-faulty_laptop_lcd_screen

Blank screen on my dv9608ca laptop i changed power inverter and screen its very dark can faintly see desk top items. everything works when in connect to different monitor so can it still be video card


It sounds like your laptop's Back Light is out. The screen has two layers, the LCD display, which provides the image, and the back light, which gives it brightness and clarity. Unfortunately, it is no easy fix and typically costs more than a new laptop to replace. I'd recommend calling HP themselves if you want to get it repaired.

Hey i have a Toshiba Equium M40X-148 and the screen wont turn on. When i power the laptop up the power light lights up but the screen stays blank. Any ideas on what the problem maybe


If you tilt it to the light, do you see a faint image?

Can you connect the laptop to a external monitor and toggle the FN + F5 key to adjust monitor settings to output to the 2nd screen.

Laptop screen and external screen have lost color completely, only getting black and white


In my opinion if you have black and white screen internal and external screen while booting and while you are into windows desktop you have a faulty graphic card. Common fault on toshiba laptops.
Actualy the reason for their sales drops dramaticaly in the past few years ;)

Blank screen


Try plugging the laptop into an external monitor to make sure the laptop is booting up properly. If it is unplug the monitor from the laptop; or if you know the laptop boots up fine and you get the windows audio when it boots and the initial starting beeps then forget the monitor. Shine a torch or light source on the screen and if you see a faint picture then the inverter on the screen has developed a fault.

Toshiba 16''laptop. Image sideways on LCD Rotated 90 dergrees. Was on Walmart web site and when I searched the site for an item the screen turned sideways Model satellite A105-s4334


Many video card's software utilities include keyboard combos that can flip or rotate the screen. Try to go into the video properties by right clicking on a blank part of the desktop and selecting PROPERTIES. Look around on the Settings > Advanced area for rotation options. Chances are that you accidentally hit the right key combo to rotate the screen and it had nothing to do with the website that you are on.

My laptop is a Toshiba satellite and after i login a black screen


Hi there. If you've had the laptop under a year, then you can take it back to the place where you bought it, and they can take a look. If anything's wrong, then it can be fixed under the manufacturer's warranty, which is normally for 12 months from purchase.

One thing I'd like to ask, can you see anything behind the black screen? I ask this, as I had a friend who had similar problem, but it was a faint black, with the cursor flashing, and he could faintly see the desktop in the background. I was wondering if this was the same for you.

Well my toshiba satellite u405-s2820 turns on but the screen is just black... what I'm I to do??


Firstly unplug everything from the laptop (even the power) and remove the battery, hold the power button down for 10secs then plug the power back in only, see what happens...

If nothings changed...
Try and plug a normal monitor into the VGA port and turn the laptop on;
you will get the toshiba POST screen if the graphics card still works (then the actual screen is at fault)
if you dont then the graphics card is at fault..


[Just a thought... does the laptop bleep when you first turn it on?]

Let me know how you get on...
