Re: screen

Probably a loose cable from the inverter to the LCD inside the screen bezel. Here are <a rel='nofollow' href=",compaq,diagram1.shtml">disassembly instructions</a>

The inverter is the 2 wire cable at the bottom right. check it for any breaks as well.

My HP Pavillion G6 laptop screen goes black if not tilted in two certain positions

Sounds like the cable feeding the inverter is either faulty or has a bad connection. You will need to take the laptop to bits. See utube video.
Hope that helps.

My laptop can only be opened at a 45 degree position otherwise the screen is black in the 45 degree position the light and image is perfect.

You may have a faulty video cable that connects the screen to the motherboard or the video cable needs reseating to the motherboard.

Key combinations to rotate screen


The key combination to rotate the screen back to normal is: Ctrl+Alt+Up Arrow

If you use Ctrl+Alt+Arrow keys - whichever arrow key you press is the direction that the screen should rotate.

Hope that helps!

Black screen / works on external moniter

When you turn your laptop to different angles can you see extremely faint graphics? Try shining a bright light at it an turn it at a 60 degree angle to your eyes. If you can see any graphics then your inverter board is bad. It it located just below the screen in front of the keyboard. The inverter itself is very inexpensive (about $12). Having someone install it shouldn't take more than 45 minutes. Let me know if this helps you.

When turned on the screen stays black.

What about the other things? Does the cooling fan work? What are the conditions of the indicators? Does the DVD drive open? Anyhow try this: Remove the AC adapter and battery. Then hold on the power button for up to one minute. Then connect the AC adapter only and try to switch on as usual. If it does't fix the problem, then remove the RAM module. It is located under a cover which has two screws on it. If you remove the screws, you can see it. Pull slightly apart the two clamps holding the RAM. Now it will lift up a little aoutomatically. Carefully pull it outwards. Then reinsert it holding it by 45 degree angle from the base. Push it back to the socket. Keep the notch on the module is aligned with the base.

When turning the notebook -- I get a 'black' screen. Is this an easy fix?

It would be helpful to know if the LED indicator lights that you see on boot up and after are acting normally. If so, and you shine a flashlight close to the screen on a 45 degree angle and can see icons or password prompts, etc., then you have narrowed the problem down to the screen and/or the screen inverter. If you have access to an external monitor and can hook up to it with the laptop, that will show quickly if it's just a screen issue. If the display is good on the external monitor, you know the screen is the problem.

You should be able to remove the LCD hingecover and reeseat the video cable. But hte issue may be a damaged cable going thru the hinge assembly which would require a replacement LCD.

HP Compaq nx9030: screen ON only in to lid position

One of two things.
Either your inverter gets unpluged (therefore it isn't plugged in correctly in the lappy) unless it's moved to a certain position (so don't shake your lappy or else you might see nothing), those being positions where theres slight pressure on the connector, even though it's loose or unplugged (POSSIBLY faulty, but most likely not, if it turns out it is, other than resoldering it, you'll need to return it for a fixing up.)
The switch that turns your screen off when the lappy closes is faulty (if it's located near the back of your laptop, aka. under the lappy's LCD bezel.

Opening it up and unpluging and pluging in the inverter is probably what the solution is. A tech might do it for free if you're nice (or you could do it yourself, don't loose any screws :) )

Hopefully it is just a loose connection and isn't a big deal at all to fix.

Stay Spicy and Happy Lappying!! :) Don't forget to rate!! :)

Laptop screen problem

Sounds like a loose connection, you will have to get the repair manual and try to fix it yourself if u don't want to take it to a shop.

Screen problem

Perhaps your connections on the inside have come loose. It may warrant you take it to a specialist to check it over before it gets any worse. Some other person was on here some time ago who had a similar problem and all it was is the switch in the lid. Apparently they tinkered with it by just kept on pushing it back and forwards as if to continue to open it and it came right they tell me that they hardly used it thats why!.
