SOURCE: Toshiba screen goes blank when it is opened too far

Sounds like a problem with the ribbon for the screen being either having a loose connection or getting nipped. Pretty common on laptops because the ribbon runs along by the hinges on the base and then up to the screen.

Hopefully you will be able to access the ribbon on your model by removing the plastic bezel which lies just above the keyboard. The ribbons I have seen are about 1/2 inch wide and as I said connect on the base and the screen. The connection just pushes in. If its loose at the connection on the base then obviously push the connection fully home. If it's getting nipped then reseat it so that it does not get caught. ***NOTE*** a problem could arise if the ribbon has actually been damaged from being nipped - opening the laptop could cause it more damage and then you could lose the screen until you replace with a new ribbon. These can normally be purchased on places like Ebay and don't cost an arm and a leg.

If this helps, I'd appreciate feedback so other people can use this as a solution. Thanks

Toshiba has a problem with the connector from the LCD to the board which breaks over time. You will need to replace it. Here is a sample of what the part looks like. You will need to specify your model.

This one is from a DELL, the one below is from a Toshiba. This went bad even though the client never used the notebook as a portable. It sat on a desk for years and was never moved.

SOURCE: Toshiba Satellite laptop w/ blank, black screen & blinking cursor

the hard drive is not checking in correctly. go into your f2 function which is your bios. see if in there during the boot options if you have a hard drive showing up. if you do, you would need to check if the hard drive has failed or the o.s. is corrupt.if you do not see a drive there, its failed, check to see if its seated correctly. if it is seated correctly the drive has failed and will need to be replaced.


if it shows up, and if you have your restore disk, load it and select repair. it will look for the hard drive and any windows installations. if it does not find any. then the drive is bad and will need to be replaced, in the event it does find the windows installation then continue to repair the machine software.

Let me know what happens when you try this

Good Luck!

Take a flashlight and shine it into the screen once PC is powered up. If you can faintly see your computer booting up in the background you probably have a bad LCD inverter card. They go for under 10$ on E-bay. Cheap and easy fix if that is the problem. Good luck, Todd

SOURCE: TOSHIBA SATELLITE LAPTOP a300d-14O TURNS ITSELF ON AGAIN AFTER SHUT DOWN WHEN LID IS CLOSED

I found that while running on battery, disconnect the battery after it starts up by itself. When the battery is plugged back in the computer remains off. Now the power setting work as they should.

I have a toshiba satellite laptop the screen is black


Shutting the computer down could be done by holding the Power Switch down for 10 seconds, rather than unplug/no battery "solution". A blank screen is more often than not caused by the failure of the screen's backlight. Plugging an external monitor in the ext monitor port would verify the computer still works, and I am sure it does.
