Question about Twinhead DURABOOK D14RY
I have a Durabook D15R Series. I was using the computer and all of a sudden the screen went dim. It was very very dim but it got lighter somewhat after I shut down the computer for about 6 hours. Still though the screen is dim. I can make whats on the screen and when exposing to light it can be used. However, I am not sure why this happened , would it be backlight problem or inverter? how can I tell the difference?
You could have a defective screen, either a faulty inverter or a CCFL lamp - follow this to determine the fault.
Defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom:
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.
