Question about Compaq Presario 900 /1500 Series EVO n1015v 15. inch LCD Display -285520-001 (285520001) CD-ROM Drive
Iwhenever I put my laptop on the screen goes dark after a couple of minutes. It seems that the back light goes out. I have taken the pc to compaq and they changed the inverter, twice, but the problem still persisted. I have been told that I need to change the screen. Is there a way how I can fix this problem and what I should do. I would appreciate any advice you could give me on what I should do.
I've had similar problem, but this situation happened when I was plugging in Pendrive or another USB device.
I've opened up (unscrewed) the LCD display and there is small metal 'switch' (or metal strip I should say) which must be touching laptop's plastic cover. Cover is painted with special paint which allows ellectric current goes to the other parts of the display.
If that metal 'switch' is not touching the cover you will not be able to see anything.
What I've done was just to bend it slightly, allowing that metal strip to touch the cover correctly.
I do not have any picture of it now and this is quite difficult to explain for me, but it's located at the bottom of the display (somwhere between the middle and left side)
Good luck with it.

Sgta, you have the inverter problem that hadrian had fixed. You just need a new inverter.
Hadrian on the other hand quite possibly has a blown CCFL tube. This is the light tube inside the panel that projects the light.
These even if blown, can still last a minute or two before cutting out.
Thats the good news.
The bad news is it lives inside the panel, and not alot of places will attempt to open the panel to replace it. This is possibly the highest risk procedure for anyone who works on LCDs since the slighest amount of damage to the controller tabs inside the panel that connect to the controller board and it's finished.
Safest bet (and probably cheapest) get a dead laptop from eBay with a faulty motherboard and swap out the screen. You will also get other useful parts from the donor system to keep for the future.
