Screen blank


Look at the LCD screen very closely and check if you can see a faint image on the screen. It's possible that the LCD lid close switch stuck in the "closed" position and the back-light stays off even when you open the LCD screen or turn on the laptop. The switch turns off the back-light when you close the LCD display to save the laptop battery power.

If that didn't fix it then there are 3 things that could have gone wrong:

1. Video cable connection from inverter to LCD got loose. To check this, follow instructions from step 3 on how to open the LCD and check if cable is fitted properly.

2. The video inverter is faulty
The screen inverter failure is very similar to the back-light lamp failure. In both cases the screen gets very dark and the image on the screen becomes very faint, barely visible under a bright light. If it's still under warranty, take it for a replacement. You can replace this otherwise - you can find the inverter under the screen, follow the procedure described at point 3 to open up the screen.

3. The LCD monitor is faulty
If it works on an external monitor most likely the LCD is faulty and needs replacement. If it's still under warranty, take it for a replacement. If not, you can do it yourself, it's pretty easy. Remove the rubber covers on the side of the screen, unscrew the screws take the plastic cover off, disconnect the video inverter and put in the new LCD after you connect the video inverter to it.

Inspiron e1505 screen in darker on the right side


Hi

Thank you fr your query

From what you are describing it sounds like the LCD screen is starting to burn out

Please try the following

1) Switch on laptop
2) Continuously press the F8 key until a start up menu is presented
3) Chsoos safe mode from the options
4) Once safe mode has laoded up check the screen to see if it is still dark

I believe it will be.

If it is you will need to book the laptop into a reputable PC shop to replace LCD screen

If this has been useful please leave postive feedback/vote/testimonial - Thank You Again

Dell E1505 Intermittent display loss CPU: Intel core duo T5300 2.0ghz RAM: 2gig PC2-4200 ram (Hynix is the brand i think?) VID: ATI X1400 256mb HDD: 80gb 5400rpm hd OS: Windows Media Center w/ SP3 and...


You might be able to verify by taking a fairly bright flashlight and aiminig across your screen when it does shut off. If you can see the image, it's probably the inverter.

If you've tried an external monitor and it does the same thing, it's probably the video card (hopefully yours is the replaceable kind.)

Six screws on the bezel and carefully pop it off. The inverter is on the bottom of the screen. I just replaced a broken screen on that exact model.

Dell E1505 Intermittent display loss


When you click on Power Options, the power options screen will open. Here you can select a power plan, change plan settings.



When you click the Change plan settings option below any of the listed power plans, the Edit Plans Setting screen will open allowing you to change when the computer should turn off the display and when to put the computer to sleep, as well as the brightness setting of the display.

Turn off the display = Never

Put the computer to sleep = Never

I have a Dell Inspiron/E1505. when i turn on my computer i can barely see my screen and it says Presentation Mode is turned off. how do i turn it on?


To turn presentation mode on follow this:
  1. Open Dell Quick Set
  2. Click on Display Settings
  3. Check the box that says Activate Presentation Mode
But I don't think that will make your screen brighter, if its still dark then look for the function hot key to turn up the brightness on your screen. Its usually something like - hold the "fn" key and press the up arrow several times.

Getting a white screen at start up on a Dell Inspiron E1505. If I let it sit it will flicker and come back on after about 15-30 min and will not return to white screen. Is it time to replace the lcd?


Try system recover.
if it happens the second you boot your computer, is the screen dark but the back light is just on, or is it that the screen is completely white?
