If the image or text is streaked then the CCFL lamp is faulty and about to fail completely.
If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp. Please click on this link and follow my instructions to identify the fault and possible fix :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3598095-faulty_laptop_lcd_screen

    Thanks Chris. For the last year, the display will be fine then all of a sudden it will have a pink tint and will have horizontal lines through it. The text on the screen will be barely readable. Then it will return to normal in the blink of an eye. It now pink all of the time. Is it likely the LCD or the inverter?

I have a problem with my hp laptop monitor's hinges, could you link where you were able to purchase those hinges?

Also, make sure you monitor's ribbon cable isn't missing any wires or that all of those wires are fully contacting.

SOURCE: DELL inspiron 6400 laptop screen turned black

this sounds like a classic case of inverter problems, it could be just inverter coil thats gone which is an inexpensive repair, if it is the inverter then its a bit more.
try the Fn the F key that shows two tv screen icons, it may just have switched to external mode by accident

good luck

This is actually a common problem with Dell machines. It is using the external display port as the primary display. You need to go into the display properties and enable the LCD, and then make it the primary. Afterwards, you should disable the external in windows, and on next boot, disable it in the bios if possible.
I used to have this problem come up randomly, whether I was using the port or not. The real trouble is that it will not default back to the internal display when no external display is present.
If you need an option to fix it without a display, you can keep a monitor cable in your laptop bag. If you boot the machine with the cable plugged in, it will not be able to identify your external monitor, and revert to the internal display.

Check the GPU and motherboard are OK by plugging an external monitor into the VGA socket and then booting. If the external screen is OK, replace the LCD screen.

MBP cannot start black scteen with boot up sound


Hi JJ Su,
To connect an external monitor to your MacBook Pro, you will need an adapter that connects to the mini-display port on the MBP, and has another plug that is appropriate for your external display {VGA or DVI}.
Take a look at Amazon to find a relatively inexpensive adapter if you don't already have one.
-Please make sure that you order the right kind of adapter for your MBP since there Apple has used 2 different kinds of ports depending on the particular model!
FYI, if the external monitor doesn't work either, then you probably have a bad GPU {Graphic Processor Unit} on the motherboard. IF the external does work, then you either have a bad internal screen, or some bad connectors/wires inside the MBP...
Hope this helps & good luck!

My 30 inch Apple HD Cinema Display is stuttering/flickering upon opening video in full screen mode. Any idea on what the problem may be?


Check your connection to the screen. You may have a running application / process that requires a lot of processing power from your Graphics Processing Unit (GPU). If you wait until the application has completed its task, or quit the program, videos should run fine.

Charging and monitor issues


If your AC Adapter and Power Cord is working fine, then your new battery has a problem if it will not charge. Just because it is new does not mean it will work.

As for your Monitor, try the steps below. Because it works with an external monitor, we know your Video Card is working fine, so the problem is either the LCD Inverter or the Lcd Screen itself is bad.

Shine a flashlight on the dark screen to see if you barely see the icons on the desktop. If so, then the LCD Inverter is bad.

If you see no icons by shinning a flash light and the external monitor works, then your screen is bad. If you see no icons by shinning the flash light and nothing shows on the external monitor, then most likely your video card is bad.

On an Acer Aspire 1640z I get blue screen and lines. lines move with track pad movement. nothing readable. replaced lcd cable and inverter. thinking either lcd or motherboard


Hook it up to an external monitor. If the display is fine on the external then your gpu on the motherboard is fine and the LCD is bad. No external display means bad board. Both cost roughly the same but an LCD is much easier to replace than the board.

I have 2 ibm thinkpads t40, on one of the systems the lcd inverter and screen get no power but when i take the lcd and connect it to the 2nd ibm tkpad it works fine, What would be wrong with the one lap...


On the second Thinkpad laptop, that doesn't show a display with an LCD screen.
Plug a VGA monitor into the VGA port on the back of the laptop.
Hold the Fn key down, tap once on the F7 key (Toggle your display over to an external monitor)

Give the VGA monitor a few seconds to come on. (It's a VGA monitor)

Do you have a display on the external monitor? No? You May have a bad GPU then. (Graphics Processing Unit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GPU )

Fix? Change out the motherboard. Possibly Ebay has one, dunno.

VGA monitor has a display? Then you may have a bad Inverter. The Inverter provides power for the LCD screen. Inverters go bad.

Are both Inverters the same? (Laptop to laptop)
BE SURE. The Inverter MUST match the LCD screen!
Check the numbers on both Inverters. If they are the same, switch the good one over to the 2nd laptop. See if you have display now.
No?
Then it's the GPU.

Monitor too dark....


Usually every laptop has the option of adjusting the screen brightness as you would want the screen to be pretty dim when running on battery to conserve battery life.
First thing to check would be just that.
