Not likely a do it yourself repair---loss of the filament voltage (6.3 volts) in the power supply of the set (some had issues where a resistor changes value).

hi

try rebooting the system (i think its F8, to get to SAFEMODE) . in DESKTOP , right click and go to PROPERTIES, go to SETTINGS, go SCREEN RESOLUTION and take the arrow to the left ; set to 640x800 and and take the color setting to 256 drop down . hopefully this works after rebooting the system. if it doesnt, it may sound like the inverter card may be bad (PC bourd that connectes to the screen : this requires a service technician)

good luck !

The screen on my Toshiba Tecra laptop has been flickering the past couple of weeks. Today, after using for about 5 minutes, the screen went completely black. I had to reboot to get the screen lit again. ...


Sounds like an inverter problem. If your laptop is still under warranty, send it in for repair. If not, and you know a little something about taking laptops apart, then you can take the screen a part and see the inverter behind the screen. It is long and skinny and has wires coming out of both ends, one side going to bulb, the other to the motherboard. Inverters are fairly cheap, and easy to replace... it's getting to it that is a pain.

While using my gps 12, the screen suddenly went dark with just a narrow border of lit screen. batteries good. I can faintly see the pages behind the dark screen.


it turns out I inadvertently adjusted the screen contrast. This is adjusted by holding the left arrow key down after powering up, until the contrast is corrected. If the screen was completely white, holding the right arrow key down after powering up would bring contrast back into balance.

Screen went dark (almost completely)


check your power cord and make sure it's plugged in all the way, and if it is, check your brightness setting.

Usually it's the Fn key + an arrow key. Make sure the brightness is up all the way

The screen/focus block assembly has caused problems with this model in the past. Sometimes it can be readjusted, other times replacement is called for.
