    Check both power and video cables. See behind monitor and behind pc for anything loose. If the power light is on then is there picture? What type of monitor? If flat LCD type shine a light on it check for faint images if any that will determine if the backlight is dead.

Backlight CCFL is burned and needs replacing. OR,...and Toshiba will not admit to it, but the LCD inverter has gone bad. The part is $200.00 bucks! Plus labor to install it. If you bought the three year warranty they push on you and try to have it repaired, they get out of it saying that you dropped it and thats what damaged it. I bought two A205 at the same time from the same store and they both have the same defective parts. Good Luck with this one. They wont admit that its a factory defect!

michaelfoder, Because very strange things start to appear on the screens of cold cathode fluorescent lamp, back-lit, LCD monitors, I always investigate the "switch-mode-power-supply/ccfl inverter supply for very common occuring defects in the supply!!! You can find out about them here: http://www.lesliewong.us/blog/2005/05/02/hp-pavilion-f1703-flat-panel-display-blackout-solution/ Just remember to do a fixya rating and testimonial if this response helps you to find and correct problem in your 2-3year old unit. Problem could be an unstable +5v or +3.3v dc supply rail. 12fixlouie

SCREEN WON,T STAY LIT UNLESS I TOUCH IT


You are simply in blackout mode. This is so at night you aren't blinded by the glow of a screen. Here are instructions right from the manual to turn on or off.

Blackout Mode On and Off
When Blackout mode is turned on, the monitor display will turn off to
reduce power consumption.
This additional power enhances the sound quality.
1 Touch [VISUAL] on the main source screen.
The VISUAL selection screen is displayed.
2 Touch [OFF].
The backlit-display portion goes out.
3 Touch [OFF] again to cancel the display backlight.
To make the setting, set to “Setting the VISUAL Touch Button” (page
34).
If any button on the unit is pressed during Blackout mode, the
function will be displayed for 5 seconds to show the operation before
returning to Blackout mode.
While the backlighting is turned off, the function indicator
