Yes the fix above will work i have a page that shows step by step instructions on how to do this. It shows how to remove the keyboard and i think from under there you can check your connections.

I will try to find somewhere you can buy a new screen if you would like.

Also i would like to say before you rip your computer apart try to hook up a different monitor to the vga plug and see if you get any display that way. If you do find the F-key with a picture of two monitors on it. Push and hold the Fn key while you tap the F-key with the pictures on it. this changes your display output.

Easy Fix! There seems to be a connection problem. If it still powers on, the problem is cable that sends the sigal to the screen. All you have to do is open up the laptop and replace the wire. Simple!

SOURCE: sony vaio laptop screen is black

This means that your bulb is not working any more. It can be replaced, and the bulb itself will only cost around 20$. It could be the bulb which is brocken, but at the same time it could be the inverter. which is a bit more pricy, but is a simple fix.
I would go for a new bulb first. You will have to completely dismantle the LCD to replace it. Recommend seeing technician.

good luck

Sony vaio laptop half screen black on the right


Sony Vaio is one of the most prominent brands of laptops on the market, and also one of the most expensive. The laptops, created by Sony, are known for their efficient processor functionality and sleek designs. While the Sony Vaio line of laptops are considered high-end, they are also prone to display problems.

Symptoms
Among the problems facing Sony Vaio laptop screens are blackouts. When these blackouts occur, the monitor turns solid black, and upon rebooting the laptop, light will briefly flash on only to blackout again. Additionally, there have been reports of an issue which causes the screen to flicker intermittently until it goes out all together. b> Troubleshooting b> Blackout displays and the continuous flickering of Sony Vaio screens can be caused by various issues taking place inside the laptop. It is not necessarily true that the problem lies within the LCD screen itself, with display issues often occurring as a result of problems with other parts of the laptop. You can test whether or not the screen is defective by connecting the laptop to an external monitor. If the display comes up normally, then the problem lies within the laptop's LCD screen. b> Parts b> If your Sony Vaio is connected to an external monitor and suddenly goes black, then the problem may have to do with the laptop's sleep button. The sleep button latch located inside the device may be jammed or broken, thus putting the screen in a permanent sleep mode until the latch is fixed. Encountering hissing sounds when the laptop is running indicates a faulty circuit board, usually damaged due to overheating. Display issues can also occur when certain parts of the laptop, such as the hard drive, have been replaced. b> Design b> Some owners have made complaints about Sony Vaio design flaws, specifically mentioning defects in the laptop's boards. Among the problems discovered after opening the laptop include burnt LCD fuses, as well as worn out circuits and internal latches. Some of these events may occur even in newly purchased units. Sony has not yet responded to various consumer complaints and has not yet issued any recalls in response to reported problems. b> Repair b> When repairing a defective Sony Vaio laptop screen, it is important that owners remain aware of the nine screws which hold the laptop cover and the board together. Not doing so can easily lead to further damage to the Vaio due to static electricity, and may even lead to a short circuit. For owners who are experienced in the area of laptop repair, parts are readily available for purchase, allowing for cost efficient repair. b> Extended desktop You will need to connect to another monitor or your television to your computer with the vga lead monitor connection. Click start control panel display change display settings adjust resolution this may vary depending on your operating system You should see a no 1 and a no 2 with detect and identify keep an eye on the screen when you select the number tabs this may vary depending on your operating system when you select the no 2 tab this should be the extended desktop always click apply after making any changes. or Click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll to monitors right click select scan for hardware changes if you can get an extended desktop your monitor is faulty if you cant get an exended desktop Hope this helps.

Hi i have a sony vaio, if i restart it or switch it off on the power switch when it comes back on the screen is either black or dark, if i can catch the f8 to restart it again then hibernate it, when i...


unfortunately, when this happens on a sony vaio it is not fixable economically. there is a part inside that makes the screen backlit, and it is powered by another part that sits deep inside of the laptop and technicians like to steer away from this one.

I had a friend with a sony vaio and it was a nice older model from 1995 or so, and it had the same problem, but worse.

sorry.

Sony vaio vgn nr490e no boot only humming / spinning sound and black screen with faint vaio on it


sounds like the backlite for your monitor needs to be replaced. (like the lightbulb went bad) These can be replaced usually, for under 100 dollars.

Ive got a sony vaio laptop and the screens gone weird, its very pink and fuzzy? whats happened any ideas


possibly back light failing. If you have a GOOOOD and i mean GOOOOD repair shop around, they may be able to replace just the back light it self. (ALSO) could be the inverter for the back light or a possible ribbon cable. THIS IS FIXABLE!!
all of the above require a good tech to work on the unit, but can be fixed, I have replaced MANY backlights my self.

not too sure what you mean here.you can reset bios to default or can set bios to factory reset.to set default ...when you turn on pc ,message at bottom left hand screen indicates which key to press to enter setup(bios setup) note...its very brief;mines f 10 for instance.at startup press this key and select load default then select save settings and exit;then ur pc restarts with default settings.
To reset bios to factory requires disassembly.
you locate rtc and remove battery(looks like large watch battery)for 5 minutes then replace,reassemble and restart pc.you dont need to know what rtc means(real time clock)or what it looks like cos the battery is right next to it.
