Question about Dell Inspiron 6000 Notebook

1 Answer

My Inspiron 6000 screen is blank. I can get an image on a monitor through the serial port, but when on its own, the notebook screen is black. I have noticed that there is a brief flash when booting up, but the colors are odd. Is this an indication that the screen needs replacing? Thank you for your help.

Hi ,

1. You can check the display on external monitor>If the display is blank on external monitor also, its pretty clear that there is an issue with system board

2. If the Exernal monitor comes up fine, it will be an issue with the display of the laptop, you can cross check the issue by booting the computer to BIOS, IF you get same response on BIOS as well. Its an issue with the Display itself you can replace the display panel.

Hopefully, its covered under warranty ;)

When I turn on my dell inspiron 1526 the screen stays black, you can hear the fan start, but it does not boot up


Try plugging a monitor into the VGA port on the back. If that works, then it's your LCD screen. If it doesn't then it's most likely your video card or your motherboard.

To determine if the LCD screen is faulty ot the video card, connect an external monitor to the laptop's video port. Power up the external monitor first and the boot up the laptop. The video image should automatically switch to the external monitor. If you don't get flashes on the monitor then the video card is OK and the fault lies with the LCD screen. Flashes coud be caused by a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp. A fault is usually easier to diagnose when it is not intermitten.

Dark screen ,fn does not work


I would suggest connecting the laptop to an external monitor, just to make sure that it is all running correctly.

If you can see a very dim image on the screen then the backlight is out. This can be a light problem or the inverter that powers the backlight could be bad. The inverter is not real dificult to change and also is not very expensive. If it is the backlight tho, it is easier to just change out the entire screen.

Hope this helps

Screen is blank


You have a VGA port on that machine that will allow you to connect a standard monitor. After you have connected the monitor you will need to tell the machine to switch the display. This is done by holding down the Fn key (3 keys to the left of the space bar) and pressing the key that looks like a monitor (typicaly the f4 key). Hit that combination a couple of times till your external monitor displays. This is also worth a try in case you have, accidentaly, set your notebook to only show on an external display. If that works, and everything else seems alright it means that you need either a power inverter or a CCFL lamp. Determining which will require patience and a power meter.

Screen goes blank


My best guess is that it's the screen or the screen sensor try playing with the angle of the screen. If it displays at a particular angle its the sensor if not its the screen, or motherboard. Either way if you pay Dell to fix it, it's like buying a new laptop.
