    Just over the past few days, the display on my Compaq R3000 doesn't come on unless I tap the switch near the upper right side hinge. After tapping that "pin" a couple times, the display comes on and seems to be OK. Stays on allthe time. Only time it doesn't work is on initial boot-up.

    I've had my R3000 for 3 years now with minimal problems, but now my screen will not work. I have the same issue where the screen will go dark out of the blue. If I tap the little rubber thing in the top right corner (that shuts the screen down when you shut the lid of the laptop) sometimes the light will come back on. Now my CPU will not even light up when I turn it on. What should I do?

    I have same mode v3000. I can barely see the icons. How do you know if it is back light and is it expensive to fix

  • msrance Feb 19, 2008

    My HP 500 display went dark suddenly, it starts perfectly but then fades in a few seconds. Same thing happens when you fiddle with the rubber button (near the hinge that auto turns off the display).The display is fine on an external monitor. I have reinstalled windows and graphic driver.
    I need to know what part to ply around with? is it the rubber button thing or the LCD backlight? Should I even try it myself (btw, this happened the night I had run out of warranty! )

    my computer would not boot up got stuck on stand by played with slide conector on right hand side computer came on but not back light had to close down by just pressing off and now computer wont boot up at all. I have tried to boot up with both on/off slide switch and stand by switch just get 1 steady green light.

    I have the same problem. My Compaq Presario R3000 screen started changing colours yesterday and finally flicker out. I could push the little "i" button on top of the keyboard but after a few second the display would turn black again.

    After research, I think the problem maybe the back-light. Considering I don't want to pay $100 or $200 to get it fixed. I went to Ebay and found a back light for $14.99 + 4.00 shipping. I will try to replace the back-light on my own. I have already replaced the hardrive 2 years ago. I have order my part on 10/3/08 I will try let everyone know how it worked.

If you have a dark display but can see the windows logo etc. faintly then buy a new inverter 14.99 from us on ebay if the screen is flickering or coloured lines it maybe the lcd harness is trapped or is connections failing etc 7.99 yes sometimes the rubber which detects the lid is closed sticks or even just a simple function key press with no5 etc. or whatever the external display button is all that is needed as it is just displaying on an external monitor of course the graphic chip on the mobo might be failing or the lcd is brocken - we sell screens for £50 - r3000 r4000 nx9110 nx9105 all use the same screens inverters harnesses etc. check the inverter needed is for a 15.4 or 15.1" screen :) shop - hpnotebooks

Above answer is great, but it won't help tell if it is the inverter or the backlight. Easy to tell, since there was DC in and nothing out. Not very difficult to remove the frame of the display and swap the inverter out. Once I put the new inverter in, I got 115 VAC out. I would guess if you had the AC then the backlight would be the problem.

Hello,
first off is this a new computer and or is it still under warranty ?

If so then after doing what i suggest then maybe you need to take it back to the place you bought it.

If not still under warranty, try this either way to check that it is the monitor or not. In the back of the laptop there is a place to hook up a external monitor.

If you have a desktop computer use its monitor to see if the laptop is in fact working, by plugging it into that port.

If in fact it works and you can use the laptop connected to that monitor then its your display, the back light probably wet bad .

Also another way to check is, if you can get a bright light and shine it on the screen and the back light is dark, you still will see stuff on the screen.

Anyway give this a try its an easy way to check at no cost.

HTH

I HAVE A LAPTOP COMPAQ PRESARIO R3000 THE SCREEN RED FOR 2 SECONDS THEN DIM DARK


You have to use it more often to cure the capacitor in the inverter?

Dark display


Do you have another screen attached? This will cause this trouble. If not, if you look closely at the screen, can you see an image? You might be able to shine a light into the screen and see an image. If so, sounds like the inverter is or has died. Try tapping the bottom plastic on the screen when the laptop is on and see if it flickers. If it does perhaps it is a loose connection/solder joint on the inverter board.

Presario R3000 display went dark can not see Screen goes black after a few minutes of use. You can see a very faint image after a few seconds, but you must do a soft re-start to bring the screen back....


Defective CCFL backlight may has 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.
  • 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 it up, 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.

Compaq Presario R3000 dim screen but not dark


Sounds like the auto-dim in the BIOS is set too low. Fortunately the Compaq R3000 allows you to adjust the brightness right from the keyboard. Hold down the [FN] function key while tapping the [F8] key will brighten the screen, while [FN]-[F7] will dim it. The settings are different for running on AC power and battery, so you must do each individually.

Compaq r3000 dark screen


If you already replaced the inverter and the screen still continues dark, you need to replace your lcd screen. Your video card is good due you have signal with external monitor.

Laptop screen dark


Most laptops have a function key that allows you to use special color coded operations. Usually these are in blue on the keyboard. Look for on that shows a picture of two monitors side by side. One will have a sun in it. Try pressing and holding the function key and then tapping this two monitor key. This option is suppose to allow you to activate a second monitor or a projector for presentations.
