Question about Toshiba Satellite A135-S2386 Notebook
Started to have a sudden problem, noticed a reddish tint when i start up the computer the monitor blinks and goes dark, but not completely black, so i can see a little through the black. restarting doesn't always help.it still works in that i can still log in and see the start menu pop up if i use the keyboard. i know it's the monitor and not the vid.card. can anyone tell me how to differentiate whether the problem is the inverter or the backlight?
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 the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out, this is the most likely case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.
