Question about Toshiba 15.0" TFT Laptop LCD Screen
My laptop monitor blacks out (you can faintly see the desktop), but when you hit the toggle that makes it think you shut the lid and opened it, it turns back on. Sometimes it stays on for only a second, sometimes for hours. I notice that the more you open the lid, the longer it stays on. Very wierd!!! I recently bought a new power supply. Also, the battery is dead. I can only run the computer plugged in. It's a great computer otherwise and I hate to waste it for something that seems repairable. Any suggestions? It is a Toshiba 1805-s204 Thanks!!!
Sounds like you need a new Switch. Oxidation has probably built up in the switch. It can be fixed. Probably shop around for a certified tech who can replace it. The switch is cheap, Labor is starting around $65 - $90. You said you can faintly see the desktop. This is the invertor board inside the LCD assembly that causes this. Again if it needs to be replaced, the invertor is fairly inexpensive, labor isn't. The technician that ckecks out the laptop can determine what it needs. Yea, your right, it is a good laptop and it is worth fixing. Just a heads up, if the tech says you need a new motherboard, he's lying, find another tech.
