Compaq evo N600c monitor problem


My laptop monitor became dark

I can see the icons if I come really close to it or if I project some light on it

I did reboot many times, and every time I can see the display if I come really close to it or if I project some light on it

But from little far it is dark

Is this a backlight problem, inverter problem or/and other reason

    I have had the same issue. Is this something that should be attempted to be repaired?

  • Anonymous Feb 04, 2008

    My screen has only a small portion of the desktop clear on the left - about 1.5" top to bottom, the rest of the screen goes dark grey. For us laymen, who don't know what an lcb tube or whatever is - can you tell me if this is a fixable problem for a reasonable amount of money if I take it somewhere to be fixed? The laptop is only 14 months old.

    Compaq Evo N600c Laptop over 5 years old but has been working fine. About 2 months ago the screen went dark (bad lamp?) so been using an external monitor. Turned it on this morning and it started to boot...

    Do you see any lights on the laptop that are on? If you see any lights and only a black screen, then more than likely your video chip on the motherboard has gone out. Some local shops might be able to replace the motherboard it might be cheaper than buying a new laptop. Good luck

    Laptop crashed put windows back in cant find wireless link

    Frequently, Compaq laptop computers have their wireless buttons on the forward facing corner of the case. Usually on the right side, you can see it if you open the lid/monitor, then look at that corner. If you see what looks like a wireless icon, press it, and then a lighted icon should light up next to the corner on the right.
    If these two things do happen, your WiFi is turned on.

    Evo N600C, display is 'dim' and mainly 'red'

    There is one CCFL lamp on the bottom edge of the LCD screen.
    You may have a faulty inverter or loose power inverter connection. OR
    You may have a defective CCFL backlight, it may have 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 or appear black. 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 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 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.
