Question about Dell Inspiron 1000 Notebook

1 Answer

Inspiron 1000 LCD goes black when moved, seemed to work fine a few days ago and just went... I can start the laptop just fine but when the lcd lid is move backwards or forwards it goes black alothough the power light stays on. After looking about online came across some fixes, took apart the LCD screen and checked all connections, no such luck. Screwed it all back together and tried the power again, but this time decided to prod and press to see if a connection or anything was loose, weirdly pressing the middle of the reverse side of the LCD screen, the dell logo, it seemed to make a connection and come on. But then by moving the LCD screen it just happens again.

My screen on the advent roma 1000 goes dark


Hi,

The usual culprits are loose connections (this only happens when the lid is moved forwards or backwards). The other is the LCD inverter getting too hot.

In both cases you will need to disassemble the laptop lid to check the leads and the inverter itself for dry joints.

If you're not comfortable with disassembling the laptop yourself then i recommend that you take it to a reputable repair store to have it looked at.


Regards.

Laptop LCD display problem


The backlight is the light bult that illuminates the screen. Before it finally goes out completely it will turn your screen a pink color on startup (and then usually become brighter and the pink fades). It is also possible that the backlight, also called a Cold Cathode Flourescent Light, CCFL, died an immediate death. But usually they take a while and signal with the "PINKNESS" first. If you found that your computer is working just fine connected to an external monitor (and you moved the base of your laptop around while connected to the monitor to be sure and left the computer on for a long time) then you have verified that the screen is the problem. It is usually two things: (1) the inverter, a circuit board that increases the voltage to supply the LCD which eats around 700 volts (yeah baby); or (2) the backlight itself. The first problem is a relatively easy and inexpensive fix. You can find how to replace an inverter by downloading the Hardware Maintenance Manual for the T40, T41, etc., from IBM/Lenovo's site. Replacing the backlight itself, a bulb that is like a strand of speghetti and even more delicate, is a tougher job. I would suggest purchasing a replacement screen in that event rather than replacing the backlight yourself. (The HMM probably does not show you how to replace the backlight/CCFL as it is a potentially dangerous job.) That suggestion assumes you can find a cost-effective replacement screen and do not mind opening the TP and putting the new screen in. At least look at the HMM to see what is involved. Good luck.

Acer Travelmate LCD screen went dark


The same thing happened on my HP. I ended up buying a LCD screen off ebay. That corrected the problem. New screens cost $150+. You can get one off ebay for half the price.
