    I did so, and I removed the hinge cover to make sure of the lid's tightness. It was all okay. But I still have the problem sometimes.

That sounds like you have something loose ..

Here is an on-line service manual for that

I would look specifically @ the LCD/monitor lead and its connections

    "and it does not work until I shake the led to some degrees" .. that tells me something is loose .. or a broken wire .. If you are not comfortable disassembling it and replacing the lcd I would suggest you take to be repaired ... lcd's for that unit can usually be found for $125 and up plus labor .. don't be surprised to pay $300 for a repair

Toshiba Satellite A505 - Most of the time when I turn it on the screen is grey, with no text.


This sounds like a bad display on the laptop. Hook up an external monitor to the vga port on the laptop. You may need to toggle the display to output to the external monitor. This is generally accomplished by pressing the "FN" key + one of the F# keys. Look for an icon that resembles a monitor or it may say LCD. If the graphics display correctly on the external monitor, then you will need to replace the computer screen.

Monitor goes blank less than a second after turning on.


Sounds like either there is a bad connection from the computer to the monitor, or the monitor has a faulty power regulator, causing the monitor to overheat prematurely, and shut off.

Does the fault appear on the laptop screen aswell? It appears by your description that the fault is only on the external monitor. If the screen comes on for a moment and then goes blank as described, then this appears to be an invertor fault. It is very common among laptop and tft screens and requires the invertor inside the panel to be replaced / repaired. Simply plug the screen into another computer to confirm.

The make and model do not matter. Your backlight is going and will have to be replaced. A good computer shop will be able to do it.

Monitor stuck on black, menu buttons not responding


It's sort of a solution, but I work in a computer shop and got this screen in yesterday. I looked at it closely and it's actually the backlight that died. I pulled it apart and found that three of the 820uF/20V capacitors had swollen up. If you replace them then you should be fine, but I went for a different approach and took the inverter board from a laptop and put the in the screen and used an external power supply. It's a bit dark but it works fine now.
