Gateway 6510GZ LCD backlight goes out

Gateway 6510GZ LCD backlight goes ou. it stays on for 4-5 minutes, then the backlight goes off. I have tried all sort of power setting options, inc. the one in the BIOS called AUTODIM when on battery only.

BIOS is 61.01

I have tried another inverter that didn't help. IF I connect a second monitor then toggle between them with the Function F4 , the LCD comes back on.

    I have replaced the LCD invereter but have not tried to replace the backlight bulb. The inverter I used was a good pull according to the seller. I understand that replacing the backlight bulb can be a complex undertaking.

Depends on your comfort - but if you've been as far as the inverter I would think not. The bulb usually runs on the bottom of the display and our vendor provides good step by step instuctions.

6510GZ PC Notebook: gateway ml6232 want power up no lights...


Can be a lot of things.
Try with removing battery for 10s.
If that doesn't work, access RAM, remove it and install it again.

Power stays on but screen goes black on my Gateway laptop.


If the laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes then you have a backlight problem.

You may have a defective CCFL backlight, it 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 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. It could be a faulty inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out; 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.

MY Gateway notebook 6510gz is always dyeing on me


You don't need a recovery cd. You just need to remove the hard drive and insert it into an external drive caddy. Then it will become just like an external hard drive. You can browse the drive to copy over your new files and then use the drive for backing up your new files in the future.
