SOURCE: laptop toshiba satellite p200 bw5

An LCD screen cannot produce enough light by itself. It needs a Backlight to help illuminate the screen.

Power for the Backlight is produced by an Inverter. An Inverter also provides power for the LCD screen.
It reduces voltage for the Backlight, and increases Voltage for the LCD screen, from the laptop's power.

Most of the time a dark LCD screen can be attributed directly to a bad Inverter. (Around 90 percent)

A Backlight is a CCFL.
Cold Cathode Fluorescent Light.
VERY similar to the fluorescent lights you see used in residential, and commercial applications.
(Homes, and businesses)
Only on a MUCH smaller scale in physical size, and needed power to operate.
When a Backlight goes bad, it just goes all at once. Not goes dark as you have stated.

(Your statement meant to me that you power on the laptop, the LCD screen shows well, then goes dark)

Just one of many places that offers an Inverter for your Satellite P200.

NOTE*
1) ALL power removed from the laptop before beginning.
AC adapter (Charger), and Battery.

2) The screws you will remove, may have screws that look alike, but are NOT.
Do Not mix them up.
For this reason it is suggested to use a multi-compartment container, and label the compartments for where the screws came out of.
You can use a clean egg container, and label the individual egg holders, in a pinch.

IMHO it isn't hard to perform this repair, and you can do it. Save yourself money.

For additional questions regarding this, or comments, please post in a Comment.

Help. I can't adjust the brightness on toshiba satellite C870. It's new to me and hard to use in different rooms. fn/f2/fn/f3 does not work.


First are you using battery power, does it brighten when plugged in ? Go to the Taskbar Notifications Area look for the battery/power Icon right click choose Power Options click openPower Options, you will fid your Power Options located here, Your laptop probaly is defaulted to Power Savings, I use High Preformance, change them to your preferences, REMEMBER, There is a reason the laptop dims on battery, to save energy and extend battery between charges.

Toshiba tecra a2 screen backlight problem the is screen not lighting up at all but in bright daylight fully functioning screen can be seen could this be the lcd inverter and how difficult is it to replace


screen not lighting up is either the screen inverter or a broken tube inside the screen. Tubes don't break by themselves so a dim screen usually comes after a transport or a drop. I would replace the inverter first (just cause it's easy and cheap). eBay's a good source for inverters and screens and you ought not pay more than $5 for a used inverter and anything more than $30 for a used screeen would be considered tourist price. Tecra A2's are rare, but it's the same as the more popular Satellite A55's. Its screen should be a 15" XGA and would be the same screen as many other Toshiba Satellite models (A10, A15, A40, A45, A55) and Satellite Pro models (M10, M15), to name a few.

In my opinion, dim screens are 98% broken tubes and 2% inverters.

Probable inverter board failure; this supplies high voltage to the fluorescent back light(s).
You can see what they look like here:

The first characters of your model number - L305, are the most important, the others detail items such as CPU, hard drive, etc.
