HP DV2503TX LCD won't turn on

I've had my HP notebook for 17months now. On the first 2 weeks I've had it, I had the whole unit replaced because of a busted cardreader. On the 11th month, just one month left in my one-year warranty, I had to turn the whole unit again for replacement of the motherboard because the dreaded blue screen appeared with a message saying "fatal problem, seek technical support". A week later I went back to pick it up, they said they have the motherboard replaced already and has examined and tested everything but when I turn it on in the store to check it myself, the LCD went kaput and split into 8 screens. So back to their service center again and they replaced it with new motherboard (or so they told me) and a new LCD which did look new, there was hair stuck in it and it was gone. The only odd thing I noticed was the lcd hinge (you know like a door hinge) was a little bit more tighter. Now 5 months later, with the new year celebration and all, for a couple of times, I've worked in the garden with inconsiderate neighbors, lighting their firecrackers without warning in front of our house. I think either the very tight hinge or the very loud sound of the firecracker contributed to the now busted LCD. On the first day it didn't turn on, what I'd do was drain the battery, because I thought then the battery was the problem but then all lights that are supposed to be on are on except for the the lcd. Then when I put in the charger or the power source after the battery has drained, the lcd would then turn on. I would repeat this ritual for 3 days until it wouldn't turn on at all. It has been 9 days now that I haven't used it. Oh I even tried hooking it up with my desktop's LCD, a samsung 19 inch. Although I'm not sure if I connected it right but still the samsung LCD wouldn't turn on with the HP notebook. So now I'm thinking maybe the problem is with the software.
So dilemma is, I don't want to turn it in yet to the HP people, because even with my expired warranty (which even the service center wouldn't even try to help me on how to extend it) they might just declare that the LCD needs to be replaced and basically I don't trust them anymore. The 17 months had been hell for me. So is there anything else I could do than praying? If only I could sell it back to them half the price, I'd do it.

Doesnt seem to be the screen by the sound of things...first of all splitting into 8 screens is not motherboard problem neither is blue screen..
if you have bad sectors on hd screen wont come on...
if have faulty mem cards wont come on(can be simple as remove mem and reseat properly)
if you close pc when downloading or updating(especially auto upgrade)or close before an installation finnished will all result in screen error(fatal exception)
if bios interrupted during flash will result same...
missing sys files will prevent os loading but youll see something on screen...
try to reinstall os because it sounds like a software issue you may want to reset bios before this...there is software (free) around to do this

I've had my compaq presario cq61 for about 2-3 years. A while back it would occasionally have a kind of shaky/blinky screen but just in the past week it's like the screen has stopped working.

The problem may be due the graphics card or data cable or backlighting.

The data cable can be severed over time though opening and closing the display. This can be replaced.
The backlighting/inverter dies, some-times the windows desktop screen can be seen if one looks carefully. This can also be replaced.

Try connect your notebook to another computer's monitor via VGA or HDMI out.

If this works then the problem lies with your LCD screen.

Take care!

Why won;t my laptop power up

This issue could be due to presence of static charges or internal hardware malfunction of the notebook. To isolate the exact cause of the issue, perform the following steps.

Step 1: Hard Reset

To perform a hard reset, please follow the steps listed below:

1. Unplug the AC adapter from the notebook PC and remove from any port replicator or docking station.
2. Remove the battery from the notebook battery compartment.
3. Press and hold down the power button for about 20 seconds.
4. Insert the battery and plug the AC adapter back into the notebook PC.
5. Press the power button to turn the notebook PC back on.

This will discharge the static charges from the notebook. Now check if the notebook works fine or not. However, if the notebook turns on and if the display stays blank then connect an external monitor to the notebook and check for the display on it.

Step 2: External Monitor

You can follow the steps below to connect an external monitor to the notebook.

1. Turn off the notebook.
2. Connect the monitor cable from the external monitor to the monitor port on the rear/side of the computer.
3. Connect the monitor to a power source and turn it on.
4. Press the Power button to turn on the computer.

At this time, please follow the instructions mentioned below for switching the display to the external monitor:

The notebook's video card supports three modes. Built-in screen only; external video only; and both on simultaneously (mirrored). If you're not seeing the image on the desired device(s), the notebook's video card is probably in another mode. Press FN + F4 to cycle through the display options: Notebook display, External monitor, both.

If you press FN + F4 once, the external monitor will display & there will be no Notebook LCD display.
If you press FN + F4 twice, the external monitor will display & there will be some shading on the Notebook LCD.
If you press FN + F4 thrice, both Notebook LCD & external monitor will display.

If the issue persists on the external monitor, then this could be due to defective video card on the notebook. However, if the display on the external monitor is fine, then the issue is with the LCD display panel of the notebook.
Incase, if the notebook does not turn on at all then the issue is due to internal hardware malfunction. In all the cases, the notebook requires a detailed onsite diagnosis by a service technician.

If your notebook is under HP warranty, then I suggest you to contact HP support to get the notebook repaired under warranty.
