You have a busted backlight lamp. It is located inside the LCD so taking it apart is necessary. Take note that replacing the backlight lamp is not an easy task even for experienced technicians. A wrong move can permanently damage the LCD.

Sounds like your laptop screen backlight has stopped working. It is easier to replace the screen than to replace the backlight, but is your option.

The problem

Image on the screen is very faint


It sounds like yout lcd inverter is blown. You can usually get a new one and replace it yourself. I would look on ebay. Its just a small computer chip that fits inside of the monitor housing.

Back light or inverter. my screen is black.


If you see a very dim image or black screen or flicking image on the LCD screen it means you have a backlight problem.

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.

Shine a torch light onto the screen. If you can see a faint outline of the images, it could indicate a back light failure. Unfortunately, you cannot fix this by yourself. You will need to take it for servicing.
