Hi there.
Chances are that the inverter (backlight) has gone, the inverter is located at the bottom of the screen behind the bezel (plastic screen surround) its quite an inexpensive fix if you take it to a reputable PC repair store, there could even be a chance that the socket that connects the cable to the inverter has worked loose and thats a 10 minute fix if thats the case.
If your confident enough to do it yourself please feel free to post back for help.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

    Hi again.
    There's nothing wrong with the LCD screen as you can still see a faint (ghost) image, you don't need to replace that.

    Regards

Check the top of the laptop for a limit switch that shuts the backlight off on the screen when you close the lid. It may be stuck.
Use a paperclip or something to move it.
If the switch appears good - the LCD backlight has failed. The remedy, unfortunately, is a new LCD display panel.

My sharp model lc-20b9u-sm has a dark circle on screen


Without seeing the dark cycle myself it is difficult to guess what. I only can think of something hit the screen (ball?) or perhaps someone bumped into the screen?
If the bump was minor, it could become lesser.
Perhaps you should ask a technician to look, or take a picture from the screen, one when switched on and one switched off, but close to where the dark circle is and take the pictures to a tech.

Asus G2S back light screen faulty


Price inverter for your laptop screen. Have it professionally installed unless you know hardware, static, etc. It can be a big job with some laptops being completely dismantled to access the inverter. I've done quite a few. Some laptops have a bezel that is very difficult to open. (Like working on a dollar store toy--only it costs $1000!

Samsung n 210 screen becomes unreadable


These screens have a fluorescent light behind them. If that light is flaky, the screen will go dark. I'd suggest checking that. They usually can be replaced--but carefully.

Dark screen on toshiba laptop qosmio g55-q804


Assuming you have tried to change the brightness controls, this is usually caused by a failing backlight in the monitor screen. These can be changed, but are very difficult to do without breaking the fine tube arrangement. Replacing the screen is a better solution and not difficult to do, even for a novice.

Cant read the menu. Is backlight broken.? I can see the word garnin when I turn power on. But the menu is difficult to read- Is it konfigutation for dark or light screen?


It depends on the model - but CCFL tubes are used by Garmin to light the screen of GPS devices. A CCFL tube comes with a high voltage inverter to power the tube. Meaning either the CCFL Tube or the Inverter can be dead.

Symptom is a barely readable screen and becomes a bit more visible when looked at from an angle. No light comes from the screen at all.

The inverter can be tested by holding oscilloscope leads close to the screen. A sinus waveform of about 50 - 60 Khz should be visible when the device is powered at full screen intensity.
