Can only just see image on screen

My compaq c500 LCD screen ios not functioning correctly. The image is only just visable. I have tried changing the power inverter and display ribbon. Is there any way to test is my screen is defective before i purcase a new screen. The laptop works fine when remoted through a standalone screen so i assume there is no mother board issue.

The issue may have been with the inverter/lcd in tandem. One shorted the other out, or vice versa. You may need to replace both at the same time. I am currently working on a laptop which is having the same issue. We tried the new inverter on the old panel, the panel lit up for a second and then went out again. Upon replacing both at the same time, the issue is resolved. I can only suggest you do the same, however I do know how expensive those panels can be (500-1300 just for the panel!!)

Does the computer make running sounds? If so it could be there is an issue with the LCD screen. If not it could be bad RAM or the Motherboard is having issues.

Compaq presario c500 has power and charges but the screen stays off disks will eject and you can hear the computer running just nothing on the screen.


hi there,
Please have it plugged it onto an external monitor to make sure that the problem is not with the LCD. Is there a backlight on the LCD or is it totally dark?
If the external monitor gives out an image it means that the LCD might be busted but do you know the keyboard shortcut to switch between the external monitor and the laptop screen?
You can try FN+ F5. if that does not work you definitely have to try it out on a external monitor.

I have a compaq paserio notebook and when I boot up the computer, either I get a blank screen or I get a very faded image that I can't hardly see so I can't log on. Most of the time I just get a blank...


Have you checked the brightness options for the screen using the HP function keys? Fn +F7 or Fn+F8 should adjust the brightness of the screen for that C306 model laptop. If adjusting the brightness has no response then try the next steps.

What happens if you turn the computer off, plug it into an external monitor or projector, and then turn the computer back on? If the video displays correctly on a computer monitor or projector, but it stays dim on the LCD screen of the laptop, then the laptop LCD Screen Back-light or inverter is probably going out. You'll need to contact HP for a replacement part or take the laptop to a certified repair center.

I have an hp\compaq presario c300 it doesn't show image on the notebook screen but i'm able to see image on the external monitor. I have replace the lcd screen and the lcd screen inverter, also made chage...


By using an external monitor, you have shown that the computer/video adapter is fine.
I'm wondering if you have told the computer to send the image to the LCD screen--using the Fn key and the special function key combo that directs the image to the LDC, the external monitor, or both.

It could also be the connection of the LCD monitor to the motherboard. You would do well to check that connection.

LCD of Compaq c500 needs replacement


Your best bet is eBay. They're at wholesale prices and if you can do it, it will only cost you the price of the screen. Just put the model number in eBay and a list of screens will come up.

Compaq laptop pink screen sometimes


The normal cause of a pink tinted screen is that the LCD back light is beginning to fail. Kind of like a regular florescent bulb does when it starts to go bad. It may last for a while, but eventually you'll have to replace it.

SPLIT SCREEN


First, plug a external monitor and toggle the screen with ALT+F5 to check that the video card and software are working correctly.
If the image is correct in the external screen you have a hardware problem, in the LCD or its cabling.
You can get the replacement parts here and change it yourself:
