Satellite P25-S609: Black screen, extrenal monitor works fine

Would this be the lamp not working and where would I be able to get one? It will not toggle between the laptop screen and ext monitor. It just goes back to the ext monitor setting when I try to switch the screen or display both of them.
Thanks

    I am connecting directly with the video cable from the monitor to the video output of the laptop. Just as if you would hookup a projector and toggle between the viewing modes. Either one on or both on. The laptop monitor does not show anything at all black (when nothing connected to it) and there is like a faint glow at the bottom of the screen if shade it, just to see the if there is any light at all.

    I tried 2 different inverters and 2 different LCD screens still the same, I think it a motherboard issue. I had updated the video driver before I tried changing things.

    what method are you using to connect eh external monitor.
    the drivers can cause this as can the method of connecting the external monitor.

I think it is the inverter to the screen that is bad. I will be trying that to see if it corrects the problem. I think the lamp is good as I do see some (very low) light at the bottom of the screen.

The monitor on my Toshiba P25-S5093 does not have any display of any kind; all black. I have display using external monitor.


Hi,
Does the display show anything before you enter windows? If yes, then press the key to transfer video back to your original screen once you enter windows. It should be the function key "Fn" + F5 - F8. looks for the icon which shows a monitor or says "CRT/LCD".
If it doesn't show anything before you enter windows I'm afraid your screen needs to be replaced. Good luck.

P25-s609 display


When you say you turn it on, do any of the lights on the laptop light up? Does it make any beeps?

Have you done anything to your laptop or has anything happened that you think might have caused this?

Start off by simplifying your setup as much as possible to eliminate any outside influences.

Remove anything plugged into the laptop. Then unplug power and remove the battery. With battery out and power disconnected, hold down the power switch 15 seconds (this can clear out a corrupt BIOS).

Reconnect only AC power and try to power up. Verify your AC power has a power light lit up and all connections are snug.

If no go, try only with the battery and no AC.

Still no go, remove battery and any removable drive (CD, DVD, etc.). Connect AC power and retry boot.

If you feel comfortable removing the hard drive, remove it and retry boot.

If all drives are out, all external and internal devices removed and still no display, try removing the memory and putting it back in (reseating it).

Let me know if that helps or if you need further help.

Toshiba Satellite P25-S5092/ Computer will come on, but screen will not work. Wondering if it is most likely the LCD screen itself, the backlight or something else.


Hi,

If you have deduced that indeed the Toshiba Satellite P25-S5092 will boot and therefore operational except no display on the screen, you can always verify by connecting an external monitor. You of course would need to press Fn + F? (the F key with the small monitor icon).

As to the LCD screen having no display, often this could either be the CCF lamps (cold cathode florescent) and/or the inverter that powers it. One way to verify this is by shining a flashlight obliquely to the screen and a portion of your desktop would show albeit very very dark. Often, it is the inverter that fails. In some instances it could even just be a cold solder, loose connection or capacitors that have dried up, leaky or blistering.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

It could be a driver problem perhaps. Does the post screen show at all or is there absolutely nothing?
