The backlight CCFL lamp provides the lighting for the LCD screen. If you have already adjusted the brightness to the max. setting and it is still dim, it means the CCFL lamp is is nearly worn out.
To determine if you have a LCD screen or video card problem, read this and follow the instructions.
Defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom: Screen flashs on red/pink and off. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering with dim display or appear black. Picture flickering on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp.
Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, 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.

Hi there. Yes some screens are interchangeable between laptops, the best way to find out is take the screen out and take note of the serial number behind the screen and the ribbon cable connectors to see how many pins they have (some laptop screens differ) if the serial numbers correspond and the cable fits then you should be good to go.
thats the complaint of LCD inverter circuit...if u dont know to open it,then dont do any thing better thing is go to the nearest service center of toshiba and try to repair it if thats failed. u have to replace with a new inverter circuit.dont try to repair urself...thats all.
if the screen flickers and goes white, it could be your lcd screen (the board on the lcd) or the lcd cable. i would suggest replacing the cheapiest which would be the lcd cable. You could also use the laptop externally and use it that way. Or just get a HDD caddy and change the securities and youll be able to get your info on any other laptop.
