Question about Toshiba Satellite M45-S331 Notebook

1 Answer

I changed the inverted in my toshiba satellite

I changed the inverter in my toshiba satellite m45-s331 it works for a few minutes and then it goes down. I can see the background, but very dark no illumination. I know is not the backlite because I can see everything with a lamp. If a plug it to an external monitor I can see everything. This is the second inverter I changed.

    Thanks for your tip durtopian, but here I go again:
    I tighten up the inverter connector and worked for a while, I was able to see 3/4 of a movie, then it went blank, the movie was running but I couldn't see anything. I turned the computer off and restarted it and I saw the toshiba logo coming out blinking and then again I could see the background with a flashlight. With these info do you think that it is the screen that is gone bad?

    Thanks again for your help

Sounds like the screen itself is bad or possibly the plug is bad to the inverter or motherboard.The videocard sounds like its ok.

    Yes the display really should be replaced as yours has a short in the backlight or inverter.

Toshiba M45-S331, Black screen


I just went through all this myself. First I had the inverter replaced ($200) and it worked great for a week, then the screen went out again. It turned out that the LCD needed replaced ($200 more, labor comped from the first no-fix). There's a problem with the Toshiba LCDs that makes them burn out sooner than other brands. Since the replaced screen, no problems (2 months). Sucks, I know.
