Question about SPARKLE Computer GeForce 6600GT, (128 MB) AGP Graphic Card

1 Answer

Flickering monitor attached to notebook.

I recently added and new 24 inch LCD monitor to my HP Pavilion dv9000nr notebook running Vista Operating System. I have a Nvidia GeForce Go 7600 integrated graphics card. I run the monitor from a HP expansion base via an analog VGA connection. I have tried the connection directly from the notebook but the same problem persist. The problem is that the monitor flickers as if there is some interference. This is the second 24 inch LCD monitor (different brand) I have connected with the same flickering. I have tried to reset resolution and refresh rates but this does nothing. Drivers appear updated. No electrical device or cord problems seem apparent. I have my monitor set as a single monitor rather than a clone or dualview. Doesn't seem to matter anyhow as far as the background flickering is concerned. This flickering does not appear on the notebook screen. Any suggestions?

Which model of Inverter Board does HP pavilion f1503 uses? My backlight keeps on dimming after 10 secs of start up. please be spefic with the model number

The part is a "ribbon cable" for an lcd monitor...ribbon made by Youngshin (AWM 2896 30V 80C VW-1).

2 ribbon cables for a hp pavilion f1503 LCD monitor (the two from the AD board to the TCP)

The LCD panel is made by HannStar (HSD150SX84).

Also, looking for other LCD parts, particularly:
the AD board for a Proview Pro-576 (I assume Sylvania PL-576 & Mag LT576s are similar); Board #: 200-100-AS576 Rev: B MV5-S2?
It uses a sampo inverter (QPWBGL8621DG) & a AU Optronics M150XN05 LCD.

Keyboard lights up screen stays black....after inserting recovery disk screen still remains black...

Would like you to attach an external monitor for a diagnoses.

A VGA monitor.
Can be a CRT monitor that resembles a small TV, or a flat LCD screen monitor, that has a VGA cable attached,

1) Laptop OFF, monitor OFF, attach the VGA cable of the monitor to the laptop's VGA connector.

[For the HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook PC, the VGA connector is on the Left side at the Rear. Second port from the rear. 15 pins.
3 rows of 5]

2) Turn the monitor on. If a CRT style allow it to warm up.
3) Turn the laptop on.

By default the display should show on the external VGA monitor.

If not, press, and hold down on the FN key,
(Second key from the left, on the Bottom row on the Keyboard),
and tap on the F4 key.
(Top of Keyboard towards the left)

Still no? Hold the Fn key down again, and at the same time tap on the F4 key.

There are 3 display options;

1) Internal monitor of laptop ONLY
2) Internal monitor of laptop AND external VGA monitor
3) External VGA monitor ONLY

IF, the display shows up on the external monitor, and if it is OK, the problem lies in the Display Assembly, and/or the Video Cable.

More on that in a moment.

IF, the display does Not show up on the external monitor, or if it is garbled, the graphics chipset is bad.

HOWEVER, there is a problem with the graphics chipset, for the dv6000 series of HP Pavilion Notebook PC's.
More specifically it isn't actually the graphics chipset itself, but the mounting of the graphics chipset to the motherboard.
More on this in a moment.

External VGA monitor shows a good display;
Video Cable:
The video cable is checked for apparent damage first, and at the same time, see if it's connectors are tightly plugged in.

On one end, the video cable is plugged into the motherboard.

(ALL power removed, AC adapter { Charger} and Battery, the Switch Cover is removed, and the Keyboard, far enough to lay it back out of the way. Keyboard Cable still attached to motherboard. The Display Cable is the one to the Far left, right under the left side of the LCD screen. The cable next to it, to the immediate right, is the Microphone Cable )

The video cable routed from the connection on the motherboard, up under the left Hinge Cover, and into the Display Assembly, where it then attaches to the Back of the LCD screen.

THIS connection must be checked also.

{ Just gave advice similar to this earlier. The asker's problem turned out to be a loose video cable connection, on the back of the LCD screen }

Examine the sheath of the video cable. See if there are signs of damage. If so the tiny wires inside the cable could be damaged.
Apparent damage or not, you may want to remove the video cable, and perform a continuity check with a multimeter. (Ohm's. Check each wire in the cable)

Video Cable connections prove to be tight, video cable continuity check proves video cable is OK, move on to the screen Inverter.

An LCD screen cannot produce light. It needs an additional light source.
A Backlight is the additional light source.

A Backlight can be a CCFL, or a series of LED lights.

The Backlight is a CCFL for an HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook PC.
[It is 2mm Wide, and 334mm Long. Or a little thicker than 1/16th inch Wide, and a little over 13 inches Long ]

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

A screen Inverter is used to convert power (Electricity) from the laptop, FOR the Backlight, and LCD screen.

90 PERCENT OF THE TIME the fault is a bad screen Inverter.

Example of a screen Inverter for a Pavilion dv6000z Notebook PC,

The thin plastic frame that surrounds the LCD screen, and is in front of the LCD screen, (Resembles a picture frame), is the Display Bezel.
The screen Inverter is located behind the Display Bezel, and at the bottom of the LCD screen area.

External VGA monitor does NOT show a good display, it is a graphics chipset mounting issue, more to follow.

you could have accidently changed to external monitor with Fn +F(the number is 8 on my comp but could be 5 on yours-check keys on top of the keyboard it has a picture rectangle / little TV), anyways to check that attach external monitor to your laptop(must have a VGA cable) if you have a picture on external monitor try Fn + F(depends on what you have on ur keyboard) it should bring you a window with choices to choose laptop LCD or external LCD choose 1st one .
hope that is it.

HP G6000 laptop, screen completely green. top and bottom taskbars are black/ red flickering.

Seem like your video is going bad on the motherboard or your LCD screen. This is how you can determine which is going bad:
- Connect a monitor to the output and toggle Fn+F4 about 2-3 times or until you see video on both screens.
--If you have that same picture on the monitor then its the internal motherboard needed.
--If you don't have that problem on the monitor then its with your LCD screen and it will need to be replaced.

Screen always flicering

If the screen is flickering then I would assume its a dry solder on the inverter board or the LCD panel is about to die. Are you skilled in electronics?
