Hi, sure is that the FL inverter has been damaged of the LCD, this one is located in the low part of the screen and you must remove the mask of the screen to be able to access it.

The laptop starts but yhe screen stays dark

The Keybinding to switch monitors is Fn F4. Please try this, and if it still doesn't work, listen closely and see if it keeps rebooting, also go into a dark room with the laptop, and see if the screen switches from black to dark blue and back to black. If this occurs, it's a result of your OS crashing. If this is the situation please contact a local retailer to see if you can get a new version of your OS for free, but you may be charged.

Hope this helps ^^. Please dont forget to rate, Thanks

Flip up screen won,t illuminate. dark

if the screen needs to be wired to the dash light switch it will not change unless the lights are on, if the wire is disconnected it is possible to bypass it making the screen stay bright.
although it would seem more likely that the brightness could be adjusted on the unit settings or by a button on the unit itself

Either the power supply is going bad (power light will be orange or off when it goes dark) or the screen itself has the problem (inverter?). If the power button stays green but the screen goes dark, that'll be the problem.

try switching your camera on in a dark room (do it at night with the curtains closed and the lights off).

if the screen lights up (should still be black or a very dark green),
then the lens or light sensors might not be functioning correctly.

if the screen stays conpletely black, then the actual screen might be damaged.

note- you might need to let your eyes adjust to the darkness before you switch your camera on.
