You could have a faulty inverter but
You most likely have a 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.

My Toshiba Satellite 2455 S305 Boots but the screen stays black. I have tried an F8 startup with no results. Does the screen need to be replaced or is there another part that might have failed?


Hi ccavanaugh38...

It could be a faulty screen or inverter causing your problem.
To try and find out which one it is, hook your laptop up to an outside monitor and start the computer, if the picture comes on then the problem is the screen, if if does not come on then it is the inverter in need of replacement.

Put in new battery and it still won't charge


The first thing you need to find out is if your AC adapter is actually working.
Measure the voltage output. It should be about 18 volts or so.
If it is not putting out the voltage, it won't charge the battery and you will need a new adapter.
If it's OK, then your motherboard is bad.

I can't read my screen because it it too llght


You should have a Fn button on your laptop, and pressing that, combined with the button that has a sun on it should raise your screen brightness, if your screen only has one brightness setting, and it got much darker all of a sudden, your LCD lamp probably went out, in which case it is probably better to buy a new laptop, because those are expensive to replace.

My Toshiba Satellite 2455-S3001 is running at a crawl. The cursor freezes and I can't get it to do anything.


Go to start>programs>accessories>system tools Disk Defragment.

Analyze the disk to see if it needs defragged.
You may also have a memory issue. Low memory can also cause this.

Toshiba Satellite A135-S4527 display problem


First try an external screen to see if your operating system is loading , if it does get a flashlight point it on the screen and check if you see a faint image , if you do it must be a bad FL inverter and if not a bad LCD, try calling toshiba tech 18004577777 to check your warranty if you still have warranty send it for repair.
