If the inverter has failed, take the laptop to a computer repair shop (if its out of warranty) or ring Dell if its still in warranty.

Tv has died


When the TV is on, if you look at the screen and can see dark images, then you will need to replace both the inverters. The inverters drive/power the back light inside the LCD to show the images. You may have to try and different channels and or inputs to truly see if you can see dark images while the TV is on. If you are hearing audio from a channel or an input then you should be able to see the dark images if just the inverters are bad.
If the screen is dead black without any dark images, then typically your LCD screen/module is bad.
If the TV powers up (power supply is good), you have audio and the remote will work with the TV (the main board is good), the only parts left is the inverters or the LCD screen/module.
I can get you LG part numbers if you need them.

My brightness control does not work just turned on and can not hardly see anything it is up and running what now


Have you tested it with an external monitor?

I would say you either have a damaged inverter board or screen baclight lamp. Usually the inverter board fails in one of the following ways:

1. When you turn on the laptop, the screen lights up for a short period of time and then goes dark. You still can see an image but it is very dark, almost invisible and definitely not usable. When you restart the laptop, the screen lights up and then goes dark again. The laptop works fine with an external monitor.
2. Your laptop turns on but the screen remains dark all the time. You still can see a very dim image outline. The laptop works fine with an external monitor.
3. The laptop screen works fine for hours or even days, but sometimes it goes very dark as it mentioned above. When you restart the laptop, the screen works fine again.

Inverter failure symptoms are very similar to backlight lamp failure symptoms and in most cases you cannot tell which one is causing the problem until you replace either the inverter board or the backlight lamp. From my personal experience, inverter boards fail more often than backlight lamps. If you have to guess, replace the inverter first.

Disply screen is dark


Hi

Thank you for your query

The problem you are describing is related to your inverter board

The inverter board is responsible for ramping up the power from 12v to 240V to allow the LCD screen to light up

Please can you book the laptop in at a reputable PC shop for a inverter replacement

Screen dark unable to adjust/ external screen works fine.there is a 1/2" x 6" board just below the screen w/ #41095 on it. that board is falling apart, i need a new one


There are plenty of the screen inverters on Ebay, just search by the computer model number, not the inverter part number. They should be about 20 bucks with shipping. That is why your screen is dark, the inverter takes power from your power inverter and converts the DC power to AC for the LCD backlight. Yours sounds like is failing or failed.

My screen went dark suddenly, when I try to restart my computer the screen is tinted red before going dark again. The screen is not completely black as there is letter visible underneath.


From what you are describing, it sounds like the inverter board is failing. This board sits under the LCD screen and is responsible for taking the DC voltage from the battery and AC adapter and converting that voltage to high voltage AC power for the backlight lamp that sits inside the lcd screen. Without that high voltage the screen goes dark. Most inverters do not fail right away, there are voltage fall offs etc. Inverters are approx. 15-20 bucks on ebay, for most laptops, they can be changed out simply by removing the bezel around the screen, unplugging the two connectors on the inverter and changing it out. In most cases except Dell, the inverter is just sitting in there and is not held in by screws.

Dv4000 hp pavilion dark screen


Have you replace the lcd inverter? if it works on external monitor, given the screen is new, then it leaves the inverter. Usually in the case of dark screen, it should be the first thing to check/replace.
