I'm afraid your backlight has failed. The screen will need to be repaired or replaced. Perhaps there is a wire between the mother board and the screen (usually a ribbon cable) that has broken. I hope this helps lead you to the problem.

In a bright light do you see a "ghost image" on the screen? Have you tried a External Monitor? This may help: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Yi6GNFcP3w

HP G62 black screen on start up


If it has no "ghost image" on the monitor, nothing, it could be a connection issue, a ribbon cable on the rear of the monitor, the inverter, a tiny switch the operates the on/off of the backlighting when the lid is opened or closed, sometimes located near the lid hinges. Have you tried a External Monitor? Take a look at this video, it may help troubleshoot the issue: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Yi6GNFcP3w

My HP Pavillion DV6000 laptop starts up fine and after a few minutes the screen turns black. I can still see the desktop image in the background but barely. If I reboot the screen looks normal again but...


That means your backlight is going out. The fact that it's happening intermittently like that suggests that you have a faulty screen inverter (a small circuit behind the screen that converts DC power to AC, in order to light the florescent backlight).
I suggest replacing it. Here are some on abay for pretty cheap:

Screen goes black on my hp pavilion dv4000 notebook


Try connecting an external monitor to the laptop, power up the monitor first then boot up the laptop. The video data will switch to the monitor automatically, check if the monitor dislays a normal image and see if the image stays on the monitor.
Also press and hold the Fn key and press the F4 key, these keys toggle the video output between the LCD screen and the video port.
Test to see if this functions correctly.
Get back to me with the results of the tests.

Screen went almost completely dark, can barely see at all.


This is a hardware failure of the LCD back-light or a loose connection which requires partial disassembly to verify. Most likely it will require an LCD replacement. If you have an external monitor you can connect it to the video output so that you can see.

I can view pictures that were taken on my camera but when I go to take pictures the screen is black


Does the screen deliver anything such as menu. Or can you see ghost images if looked at from the side? If you see nothing then this is a connector issue of a circuit board failure. If you see ghost images then it a back light failure. Either way this is a return to HP situation. If under warranty via the seller if not under warranty contact HP customer support. If they are quoting money- you may find it more economic to write it off and get a new camera.
