Hi,



This might be millions of reasons for the same. Let me provide you with common problems which people have faced :-

1. Setting - Make sure that the brightness level is fine.Usually it's the Fn key + an arrow key. Make sure the brightness is up all the wa.

2. Check the power cord, if any. Try to play with all the cords, if any.

3. Uninstall all the drivers and again install it.

If the problem still persists, More likely it's a Hardware problem.

Now,

Main Reasons ( Hardware ) - Backlight issue or Inverter Board fault.

Trick that might work - Remove the battery for few minutes and again put that back.

You can check whether Inverter Board is corrupt or not As well as you can repair that. Follow the below mentioned :-

Screen began flashing then went dark


If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LEDflashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faultyinverter or a faulty CCFL lamp.

Dark sgreen


Shine a flashlight on the dark screen to see if you barelysee the icons on the desktop. If so, then the LCD Inverter is bad.

Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can beany kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vgacable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves yourvideo card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you rebootwithout you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN(Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correctkey for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key willnormally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

If you see no icons by shinning a flash light and the external monitor works,then your screen is bad. If you see no icons by shinning the flash lightand nothing shows on the external monitor, then most likely your video card isbad.

Gateway laptop powers up but screen does not come up.


Why did you replace the lcd inverter? Were you able to barely see icons on the desktop which is an indication that the lcd inverter is bad? If not, then you need to replace the lcd screen. If you could barely see the icons and you replaced the lcd inverter, then the inverter is bad. Just because the inverter is new does not mean it works. If the video shows on the external monitor, but you can't see anything on the laptop's screen even when you shine a flashlight on it then the lcd screen is bad.

Screen dark


Have you tried to brighten it by the keys on the keyboard? Most times you have to Press and Hold the FN function key located at the lower left portion of the keyboard then hit the key that brightens the display.

If that does not work then try the steps below.

I have an acer aspire 5630 it has worked well for nearly 4 years, about 4 months back I noticed that the screen would be dark and slightly reddish for the first 30 seconds to a minute after turning it on...


hi

try rebooting the system (i think its F8, to get to SAFEMODE) . in DESKTOP , right click and go to PROPERTIES, go to SETTINGS, go SCREEN RESOLUTION and take the arrow to the left ; set to 640x800 and and take the color setting to 256 drop down . hopefully this works after rebooting the system. if it doesnt, it may sound like the inverter card may be bad (PC bourd that connectes to the screen : this requires a service technician)

good luck !

Extremely Dim/Dark ViewSonic Monitor


There are two places to look for the problems, the backlight inverter board and the power supply. Look at the power supply first since it is easier to get to, look for burnt parts, bad capacitors, etc.

LCD Display Blank


I have a sony cybershot DSC-S650, the LCD was very dark and could not see anything except if I pointed it at a bright object, everything else worked ok. I could take pictures but could barely see them in playback as well.

I took it to Sony authorised repair outlet and was told the CCD was damaged, they charged me USD $55 to repair it (in Quito, Ecuador)
