First I would check to make sure that the contrast/brightness buttons on the laptop weren't accidentally changed, making the screen dark. Also, try with and without the battery and power supply. Otherwise, unless it is actually the screen that is defective, it is usually a power converter replacement, which is a small circuit board, usually under the plastic cover directly under the monitor, which supplies power to the monitor. You may want to take it to a shop as they can isolate the issue easier.....

Screen is black but computer works perfect.


When this happens it means the back light needs to be replaced. The back light is a light bulb that lights up the screen from behind the LCD display.

Toshiba satellite a135 monitor goes black


You could have a defective screen - a defective inverter or a CCFL lamp.
To determine if you have a LCD screen or video card problem, read this and follow the instructions.

Defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom:

  • Screen flashs on red/pink and off.
  • Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal.
  • Picture flickering with dim display.
  • Picture flickering 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 replacing the CCFL lamp

Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power it up, 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 and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

Toshibba laptop a135-s2276 ,my mother bords smd chip does not work so display of screen does not appear


The problem is well known witht this model Toshiba - the problem is the fan stops working and then hence shuts down to prevent overheating - it does not take long once the laptop is hot. Without replacing the fan just reboot the laptop until you hear the fan start again on reboot.
