Question about HP Pavilion dv2000t Notebook
The problem is on a Gateway model # MT6730. When we turn the computer on, we can see that the screen is coming on because of the flicker of the light change. If we look hard enough and at the right angle, we can barely see the ''GATEWAY'' logo appear. Other than that, the screen looks blacked out and we cannot see the prompts (even though we know they are there!) We have already tried everything possible from using the function keys up to removing the battery, (which tested fully charged and in good condition) and putting back. my screen is really dark and at the right angle with a light shining on my screen i can see it barely
I had a similar problem with an HP DV2000 notebook computer. Here's the solution for the HP model DV2040TX: Problem identified and FIXED. Not the screen, not the screen power supply. The problem was the micro-switch within the right-hand-side screen hinge. This switch turns off the screen when you close the lid of the notebook - probably to prevent overheating. The switch had failed mechanically (technical term: "fallen to bits"). As a low-cost fix, I have unscrewed the main casing including the screws inside the battery compartment, removed the silver panel covering the speakers, flicked the switch "ON" using a jewellers' screwdriver, and removed the small metal tongue that is operated by a cam on the hinge. Thus, the switch is PERMANENTLY ON. Computer operates normally, shuts down normally using Windows. Just need to be aware not to close the lid without shutting down the computer beforehand. Hope this helps you. All the best, OzKluger
