    LCD and yes can see images but are dark can only make out white areas

  • dreagon May 11, 2010

    Is this an LED or LCD screen? if it's LED it's likely the light bulb is burned out on it. Can you still see images but they are too dark to make out?

Inverter is not functioning.

Generally: to be specific, the fuse on the front end is open. It is a small chip fuse of varying amperage - so no power is being input into the amplifying circuit to raise the voltage high enough to 'strike up' an arc in the CFC backlight tube. The small transformer on the inverter raises the voltage in excess of 300v (but very low current).

If you shine a bright light at the screen, with no external screen connected, and you can see a picture/desktop just around the light source, the ballast unit or flourescent back light maybe faulty. If nothing at all, check out flea bay for a replacement screen.

...........Oh. c'mon I wuz just playin...........

A) Is the Screen resolution correct?

B) You may have a problem with the screen Inverter, or Video Cable, or LCD screen.

A short primer if I may;

An LCD screen does not produce light,

(Click on the monitor image)

It needs an additional light source.
A Backlight is the additional light source.

A Backlight can be a CCFL (Or more than one), or a series of LED's
(Light Emitting Diode)

A CCFL is a Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp. (Bulb)
Similar to Fluorescent lighting used in homes, and businesses; but on a MUCH smaller scale.

Average thickness is 2mm. That is a little larger than 1/16th of an Inch, or about the width of this capital letter -> O <-
Average length is almost as long, as the LCD screen is in height.

View the last 8 photos,

Not knowing what laptop is in reference here, I cannot tell you whether your laptop uses CCFL/s, or LED's.

A screen Inverter is used to convert the power from the laptop, for the screen Inverter.

Laptops that use a CCFL for a Backlight, also use a screen Inverter.
Laptops that use LED';s for a Backlight, may or may Not use a screen Inverter.

90 PERCENT OF THE TIME, the fault can be attributed to a bad screen Inverter.

Primer over.

What is the laptop manufacturer name, and model number?
The model number is on the bottom of the laptop.

Laptop has a black screen no picture.

It sounds like the back-light in your laptop's LCD screen has died. If you turn the laptop on, and hold the screen up to the light, you may be able to see the operating system and windows, but since the screen isn't emitting any light, it appears to be off or all black. If this is the case, you'll need to either replace the back-light, have the laptop repaired, or replace the whole thing. There's no easy fix for a dead back-light.

Power on screen still black

The following might be the problem:
  1. The screen might be bad
  2. The screen board might be bad
  3. The screen light might be bad
  4. The laptop mother board might be bad.
To be sure if the mother board is still working, connect your laptop to a monitor an see it it displays.

You need to take your laptop to a qualified technician to ascertain the main problem so that action can be carried out.

There was a Toshiba laptop that some brought to me, the fault was the same as yours but when the laptop was checked, we found out that the fault was from the screen light. That is the lights that makes the screen bright was dead.

I wish you the best.

Screen Back light no longer works

Bad wire or a bad solder. you can have this repaired if you have the service manual of the computer as it shows the full anatomy of the machine. Or a local computer shop is always a good option.
