    Thanks, I was able to see the image after shining a light on the LCD panel so it appears to be the LCD back-lights. I tried the fix on another part of the site with no success. They suggested adjusting brightness with function key and checking to make sure the Lid switch was not stuck. Didn't work.



    Do you have any other suggestions?

    Thanks again. At least I know it's not eh system board

Hello there.
I understand that your Notebook is not showing the display lights. To isolate the issue please do the following troubleshooting steps.

1) Check the display with external monitor. If the external monitor is showing the display then the problem is with the LCD screen. If the external monitor is not showing the display then the problem is with the display card.

2) If you have any torch light or a cell phone , try focusing the light on the LCD screen after the Notebook is powered on and check whether you are able to see the texts and images on the LCD. If you are able to see the images and texts then it is the problem of the LCD back-lights. The lights which glow at the back of the LCD panel are not working.

If your Notebook is under warranty HP will repair it free of cost.

Contact HP customer chat center for more information regarding the details of the repair and the procedure for sending the Notebook to HP in case of repair.

Black screen on laptop


When it is in that state, try hooking it up to an external display. Also look for a extremely faint image on the screen. If it's really faint you have a bad back light, if you see nothing but you get a display on an external monitor it's probably the display going bad.

This is most likely either an issue with the display itself or the cable that is inside the laptop chassis that connects the motherboard to the display. The cable can get pinched and unplugged by the screen being opened and closed (if it wasn't assembled properly). This can be about a $200 fix. If it is the display itself cutting out completely, it is typically over $350 to repair through HP. If there is a dark, washed out image that is barely visible, it means the backlight is going out and that is at least a $300 repair.

You may have a defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom: Screen flashes on and off or displays reddish pink hue. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering with dim display or appear black. Picture flickers on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replace the CCFL lamp.
To determine if the video card or the LCD is faulty, connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight. It could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out, this is the most likely case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

Display after rain went black


If your video output works fine when connected to an external monitor, then the issue is with the LCD display panel. I’m afraid the only way to fix this is to have the LCD panel replaced.

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
