Question about Toshiba Satellite A105 Notebook
I have a problem with my display on my lcd screen. I can faintly see my start up window but I believe my backlight button maybe stuck but can't find it on this model. Can you help me out?
It's the LCD inverter, it's like the started circuit for a flourescent light that makes your backlight work.
Can be purchased online from a bunch of places.
Then remove the rubber stops and the screws from around the screen, CAREFULLY pry the bezel away from the screen and you will see the inverter at the bottom of the screen.
NOTE: This also applies to laptop screens that turn pink or red and ones that go bright and dark ar random. A good 85% of the time.

The Satellite A 105 does not have an external switch to tell the laptop that the screen is open or closed. Instead there is a magnet in the uper right corner of the screen trim. This magnet activates a switch hidden in the laptop.
I have the same problem. I believe I found the problem. I don't know what you call it, but I believe on my laptop, the backlight starter is bad. I can't get any voltage out of it.
If you want to test the switch, you can change your power settings so that the computor goes into standby when you close the lid. Then when you close the lid, if your laptop hibernates, you know your switch is working.

keep typing the combination of "Fn" and "F7" on the keypad .
note: you can find "Fn" on the lower left of the keyboard and "F7" on the topmost right of the keyboard...
Please let me know the results...
