Could be a bad backlight or inverter board.

Hi. I have hp 6735s laptop and when I move him screen suddenly go black or in rare case white and I need to hold power button to shut down and when I turn him on everything is normal until I move him again...


When you say you move him, do you mean lifting the unit and moving to another location or just moving the lid (changing angle of the lid/lcd)?

If changing the angle of the display gives you black/white screen, you may be having problem with the LCD cable, it might be loose or defective. But if moving the unit to another location gives you the black/white screen, one component of the unit might be loose. Either you need to properly reinsert the memory of the harddrive. If these simple steps will not resolve the issue then you might need to check the whole motherboard including the connection to the LCD.

Hope this helps.

Black screen

Usually when you see a reddish hue then indicative of an inverter or backlight failure. Hold the laptop up after it is started and look from the bottom toward the top. Try to shine a flasklight at the bottom of the screen upwards...see if you can see the windows startup screen or anything that gives an indication that the laptop is running and booted to where you can faintly see something on the screen. If you can barely make out an image, then 9 times out of 10 you need another inverter. There are rare occasions that a backlight bulb will fail, but this is rare and most backlight bulb failures are from shock damage. The inverter can be changed by simply removing the screen bezel, unplugging the inverter and changing it. If the bulb has been broken or burned out, it is more cost efficient to simply change out the lcd panel. The bulb sits in a channel under the lcd panels inside the aluminum framework. The panel has to be disassembled to remove it.

Laptop screen went black

When I opened my laptop this morning my computer won't come on. The screen is totally black. I took out the battery and put it back in ---- still nothing. I plugged it in with the power cord --- nothing! What is wrong with my HP Compaq Presario CQ60?

Black screen/flickering

try using an external monitor, if the problem doesn't happen on the external monitor then definitely the problem is with the LCD screen. Possible replacement required for the LCD panel.

Compaq V5005us is weird. Powers on with black screen and freezes

It sounds like your Video card and/or motherboard are starting to give out or your LCD is giving way. Try plugging the laptop into an external screen and see if it still acts strangely or even displays on the external monitor.
