HP laptop screen is black


A blacked-out screen doesn't necessarily indicate a broken monitor.
If the computer has run out of charge or is in hibernation or sleep mode,
if the screen is too dark, or if the display cable has come disconnected from the motherboard, the screen may appear black or fail to turn on. To fix a blacked-out laptop screen, troubleshoot the screen settings, check the LCD connector and see if the computer is awake and receiving power.
Touch the touchpad or move the external mouse to see if the computer is asleep or hibernating. If the computer fails to respond, press "Enter" on the keyboard. Press the power button if the screen remains black.

Confirm that the power indicator light, found at the front of the computer or above the keyboard, is glowing solid green or blue. Confirm that the power adapter is plugged into the computer and into a wall outlet. Confirm that battery indicator light is glowing solid green or blue. Hold down the "Fn" key. Press the up-arrow to see if the screen brightness increases.
Some computers also use the "F6" or "F7" keys to increase screen brightness.
Hold down the power button for 10 seconds to turn off the laptop.
Remove the AC adapter from the computer, close the screen, and then turn the PC over.
Slide the battery latch to eject the battery. Pull the battery out of its compartment. Turn the computer back over, open the lid, and insert the edge of a flathead screwdriver or other flat, solid object beneath the bezel above the keyboard. Wedge the edge of the keyboard bezel off of the top cover.
Work your way along the edge of the keyboard bezel to loosen it.
Pull the bezel off the laptop.
Trace the cable coming from the laptop screen to the connector found beneath the bezel. Reconnect the display cable to the motherboard if the cable has come loose from the connector. Line up the tabs on the bezel with the slots along the top of the keyboard. Insert the right edge of the bezel into the gap above the keyboard, and then push the bezel back in place. Turn the computer back on. If the laptop screen is still blacked out, connect an external monitor to the video port on the side of the PC to confirm that the video card isn't defective. If the external monitor works, the LCD screen could be broken. If the monitor doesn't work, the motherboard or video card might need to be replaced. Hope this helps

Gateway M275 display scambles


I suspect it may be a problem with the video cable coming from the convertible tablet, up through the hinged support for the LCD screen, AND/OR the screen Inverter.

I would like you to connect a VGA monitor, to the VGA port on the back of the convertible tablet. The VGA monitor will now be an External Monitor.

[ Looking at the rear of the convertible tablet, start at the Left side.
Vent, USB port, Monitor port. The Monitor port is the VGA port ]

The VGA monitor can be a CRT type, (Looks like a small TV), or a flat LCD screen monitor with a VGA cable.

Notebook OFF, monitor OFF, connect the VGA monitor to the M275's VGA connector. (Port)
Turn the monitor on. If a CRT type, allow it to warm up.

Turn the notebook on.
By the factory default settings, whatever is shown on the convertible tablet's internal monitor, should now be shown on the external monitor.
(VGA monitor)

If not, press, and hold down on the Fn key (On the bottom row of the Keyboard, all the way to the Left), and tap once on the F3 key.
(Top row of Function keys. The F3 key is the Display Toggle-Over Key )

No graphics shown on the external monitor? Hold down on the Fn key again, and tap the F3 key again.
There are at least three options available;

1) Convertible tablet's internal monitor - ONLY
2) Convertible tablet, AND external monitor
3) External monitor - ONLY

If graphics are fine on the external monitor, you have a problem with the video cable, and/or the screen Inverter. At this time we will bypass the LCD screen, and come back to it.

At the bottom/middle of the tablet's LCD screen, is the Hinge. The Hinge Cover is 'T shaped', and has one single Philips screw holding it on.
If you remove the screw, and the Hinge Cover, you will see two wire harnesses.
One Black, the other White.

See that these two cables are plugged in tightly to the connector.

After checking this step come back in a Comment, and state your findings.

Regards,
joecoolvette

The screen on my toshiba satellite a135-s2386 has a red hue for the second that it remains on during start up. It will display fine on an external monitor. If an external monitor is not connected, and you...


This sounds like a problem with the back light. The back light is generally a small cool fluorescent light. The problem could be with either the fluorescent light or the inverter board that supplies the voltage to run the lamp. If you are able to disassemble it yourself you can usually buy an inverter and lamp online. This requires a good amount of dis-assembly and expertise but costs less. At a higher price but less expertise is a complete lcd display including frame and covers. This basically just requires removal of the top cover of the laptop to access the screws that hold the display on and access to the cables.

Best of luck, Jim

My dell laptop lcd splashes the OS and then goes dark. It works fine with an external monitor. I have a feeling that there is a loose connection since the top is almost falling off


Think you have answered your own problem here. If the external screen is ok, then the fault lies with the laptop screen.
Solutions..
1.) Remove keyboard top cover (download a "how to" guide if not familar with doing this)
2.) Remove screen bezel
3.) Check the inverter connections (inverter looks like a thin tube)
4.) Check cabling from motherboard to monitor /inverter for signs of fraying, tears, bare wires
5.) Check connections of the cable for damage.
If the above are ok, then you may have a damaged inverter. In any event, i'd look to repairing the damage to the loose lid, as its putting a strain on the wiring

Used as second monitor suddenly stared to go dark


If the screen is lighting up for a fraction of a second when you turn on & then goes dark, this indicates a fault either with the backlights on the screen or the inverter part of the monitor. You can check the backlights if you have access to a backlight tester, you need to remove the rear cover & connect the backlight cables into the tester, if this checks ok then look for a problem on the inverter board, checking the capacitors for any signs of distress.

Hp dv9000 switches on to show coloured lines on screen.


Hello

My first guess is that the screen circuitry has gone bad - although fixable. Use an external monitor to verify this. If the external monitor is fine then the screen circuitry is bad, if the external screen shows the same problem then the video chip or associated circuitry has gone bad. My company fixes these all the time.

Display went from extremely dark to complely black


Hello there.
I understand that your Notebook is not showing the display lights. To isolate the issue please do the following troubleshooting steps.

1) Check the display with external monitor. If the external monitor is showing the display then the problem is with the LCD screen. If the external monitor is not showing the display then the problem is with the display card.

2) If you have any torch light or a cell phone , try focusing the light on the LCD screen after the Notebook is powered on and check whether you are able to see the texts and images on the LCD. If you are able to see the images and texts then it is the problem of the LCD back-lights. The lights which glow at the back of the LCD panel are not working.

If your Notebook is under warranty HP will repair it free of cost.

Contact HP customer chat center for more information regarding the details of the repair and the procedure for sending the Notebook to HP in case of repair.

Hp v2010us screen is almost black, but i can see extremely dim


I have fixed a few laptop screens with this problem ...it is usually the lcd inverter ...somtimes if you just unplug and plug back in it may work , but usually a new one is in order .....The inverter is a small cuircut board just behind the plastic cover at the bottom of the lcd screen ....to get to it you probly need to remove the rubber protectors around the face of the screen and there are screws behind them ....not sure about your model but maby do a search for replacing the screen on it and you will get pictures that show you how to take it apart.
Hope this helps

Screen problem Hp dv1000


The main two causes for this, are the inverter, which supplies the screen with the proper amount of power in order to function correctly, or the screen. If the inverter isn't puting out enough power it will cause the screen to darken or black out completely. Start by checking the screen connections. If all the connection are properly seated, the it's either the inverter or the screen it self.
