Question about Toshiba Satellite A15-S129 Notebook
I have a Toshiba A15-S129 notebook. When the power is on, the LCD screen is blank..nothing. I tried the tips listed in the troubleshooting guide for my model(hold Fn down and press F5 repeatedly), however, the screen still remains blank. The only thing I have not tried is to see if the "hinge" is hanging up..Do I have to take the screen apart to do this? Any suggestions on how to get my picture back on the screen? Thanks...
I would suggest ensuring it's not video chipset. You have a VGA (monitor) conenctor on the back of that, plug in a regular computer moniter and see if it works. If it boots on the monitor you know it's a display problem(hinge,ribbon cable), if it still doesn't boot, it's a hardware problem(video card, main board). Let me know what happens, try cleaning the hing with rubbing alchol & a q-tip Good luck Hope this Helps!

My soultion may be costly. The reason I say that is taking apart a lap top is no walk in the park. In many cases you will need special tools plus if you pull one part to far you might rip the delicate cable that sends the signal to your lcd screen. When it comes to lap tops and hardware problems its better to leave it to the manufacture to fix. I know this is not a solution but I just want to give you a heads up of what kind of problems you will run into if you try to fix it yourself. I would call manufacture see if there is a recall or somekind of tech service. Then you will be rest assured that it will be repaired properly and there will not be more problems that you caused when you opened it up.
