Question about Toshiba Satellite A205-S4617 Notebook

1 Answer

Screen blacked out or just got black.

I can hear sound, as if it's working normally. I just don't have anything on the screen. I left the room and a few hours later, it was black. I left it on.

How do I tell if my emachine e725 black screen is the video cable, inverter or screen backlight -lcd screen - briefly flashes when booting up, then goes black - I can hear all the log in sounds working -


Take the laptop in a dark room and point a flashlight at the screen: if you can see the image it's the inverter, if not it's the cable or the video chip.

White screen


First see if the power on self-test (Fn+ Power) or the LCD BIST (D+Power) will run. The Diags are normally on a blue screen with white test, the LCD BIST is simply 4 Solid Color Screen looking for defects in the LCD panel.
If you hear beeps/windows sounds when the system boots and the LCD BIST test does nothing then the LCD has likely failed and you will need a new one. You can try an external monitor and see if you get video on an external screen.
If you don't then try these steps:

Black screen but can hear sound


Chances are your video drivers are causing your problem. You need to go to the video board manufacturer's website and download the newest version of your video drivers. If you're using a laptop, chances are you'll need to go to the laptop vendor's website to get the drivers specific to the laptop.

Does not sound good, the onboard video chip is more than likely fried. all you can do now is try plugging in a external monitor and see if that port still works. You may try replacing the LCD inverter board, but I don't think it will help.

No picture


HI
I think you should make sure of the cable connections. Exactly make sure all the cables are connected correctly especially the one of the name "Video".
I hope it does work.

Does the menu show up on the screen, or is it totally black?
Does the camera take pictures and behaves as normal (apart from black screen ;)?

If the menu shows up then I'm afraid it's most probably something serious- like dead CCD or failed shutter (probably the latter-LX2s are not famous for failing CCDs). Failed shutter is easy to identify. You would normally hear a faint mechanical"click" when taking a picture (make sure you disable sounds in your camera). If you can't hear anything then the shutter might be dead. In cases like this I normally suggest getting a donor camera from ebay and replacing the lens (the shutter assembly is inside the lens but it's much easier to replace the whole lens).
Good luck,
Raf
