Question about Dell Inspiron E1705 Notebook
My e1705 monitor went out today, I can see this screen fine with S-video cable to my TV as I'm using it to enter this. The screen of the laptop actually comes on for a brief second when bouncing back and forth with the Fn and F8 key, but will not remain. on. I also notice that my Wi Fi light is on, have never paid any attention to that before. Any suggestions for a fix is appreciated. Thanks in advance.
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.
