Re: Toshiba Satellite A105 lcd display

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.

Re: Toshiba Satellite A105 lcd display

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.

If you've replaced the LCD Panel already, then chances are good, the failing part may be the FLR inverter. It's a thin little chip about 3 or 4 inches in length that bridges the connection between the LCD and the motherboard. It's location varies from computer to computer though, so you may have to check with manufacturer documentation. They're not too terribly expensive to replace though, much cheaper than the LCD panel, anyways.

If you've got exacttly the same each time you're start, then the VGA card has issue, or even the motherboard and CPU.

If not then try to chock the base of the screen with two fingers when starting, if nothing happen try to chock the middle of the keyboard and several spot around it. (it's a little bit brutal but the easiest way to find a bad contact or dead components)

My Toshiba Satellite does a similar thing, It goes gray while I am working on it. The only way to continue to work on it is to complete shut it down manually and reboot. I took it to Toshiba they said nothing was wrong.

when you "adjust the angle of the screen", that can only be a faulty electrical connection. Try again at the mainboard connector.
