Question about HP 6440b Notebook PC - Core i5 430M 2.26 GCPU - 4 GB RAM - 160 GB H

1 Answer

Screen is faulty. It divides in equal half and displays well on one side and dims on the other. I can read info on both sides but dim side displays faded colour. External monitor works fine.

Can I rectify this without changing the entire screen? Thanks

Usually not. The circuitry that drives the panel is integrated with the screen.

It's some work but those screens are serviceable and you can often find a good replacement on eBay at a fraction of the cost of a new HP part. A local small computer shop could probably swap it out for you in less than an hour.

Good luck.

Dull laptop screen back light


You may have a faulty CCFL lamp. A faulty CCFL lamp may have the following symptom: Screen flashes on and off or displays reddish pink hue. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering and/or with dim display or appear black. Picture flickers 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 replace the CCFL lamp.
To determine if the video card or the LCD is faulty, 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 or a faulty inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp. Usually the CCFL lamp fails before the inverter.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.
