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:

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.

Acer 5315 goes to black screen with cursor


If it's only 5 months old, then it's still under warranty. Right now, I'd advise taking it back to have it fixed instead of taking it apart to replace hardware and possibly voiding a warranty.
