Question about Toshiba (225EXTR5)

1 Answer

I have a Toshiba Satellite series laptop that was dropped and the screen was damaged. I've gotten a replacement but I don't want to mess anything up by changing it myself. Anyone have suggestions? I've gotten the black plastic "frame" around the old screen disconnected around to the hinges but can't figure out how to get it the rest of the way off without breaking it.

You'll need to pry the screen gently forward(away from the plastic casing)...along the side s of the screen will be the hinge brackets.....4 screws (2 either side) hold the screen in place...undo these screws and the screen will be free....the only thing connecting screen to computer will be the video ribbon cable which connects to the back of the screen via a plastic pressure clip...release the clip and your done.....remember to be very careful when installing the new screen as its easy to overtighten the screws and damage the screen

My laptop screen is not working on satellite c660-2q8


Has their been any damage? Dropped? Will the laptop boot? Fan spins? LED's Blink? Battery Charge light on? Remove ALL media, DVD,CD,USB, unplug, remove battery, plug in , reboot, discribe what happens, anything? Nothing? If the laptop boots and you can see a "ghost image" in a bright light, it may be a switch, if you connect to a external monitor, does it show desktop? Need more info.

Toshiba tecra a2 screen backlight problem the is screen not lighting up at all but in bright daylight fully functioning screen can be seen could this be the lcd inverter and how difficult is it to replace


screen not lighting up is either the screen inverter or a broken tube inside the screen. Tubes don't break by themselves so a dim screen usually comes after a transport or a drop. I would replace the inverter first (just cause it's easy and cheap). eBay's a good source for inverters and screens and you ought not pay more than $5 for a used inverter and anything more than $30 for a used screeen would be considered tourist price. Tecra A2's are rare, but it's the same as the more popular Satellite A55's. Its screen should be a 15" XGA and would be the same screen as many other Toshiba Satellite models (A10, A15, A40, A45, A55) and Satellite Pro models (M10, M15), to name a few.

In my opinion, dim screens are 98% broken tubes and 2% inverters.

My screen on toshiba satellite l500 went white. I connect it to the tv and it works. Tried re install drivers, made the updates, took out the battery, and nothing worked. Ideas? Urgently? Thanks.


The data connection cable between the lcd screen and the motherboard of the laptop is damaged - the laptop will have to be completely dismantled to have it replaced.
It's a big job, take your laptop to a repair shop.

The monitor on my Toshiba P25-S5093 does not have any display of any kind; all black. I have display using external monitor.


Hi,
Does the display show anything before you enter windows? If yes, then press the key to transfer video back to your original screen once you enter windows. It should be the function key "Fn" + F5 - F8. looks for the icon which shows a monitor or says "CRT/LCD".
If it doesn't show anything before you enter windows I'm afraid your screen needs to be replaced. Good luck.

System failure of toshiba satellite a215-s7422


Put the laptop back together, its possible youve damaged one of the boards, and the "coin sounds" you hear are jsut beeps from the motherboard indication some form of system failure. call toshiba and see if you have any warranty coverage, and out of curiosity what did you drop on it? something heavy i presume?
