Backlight turning off while in use on Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop

At the moment on my Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop as I am working away the screen goes dark not blank. I use Ctr Alt Delete enter my password and the screen is back working. Then it can go off a few minutes later. At the moment when I first use the laptop there is no problem for 15 minutes or more, then it can happen regularly.

Dell Sceen I have a Dell 1525 Laptop the screen got cracked to day. Looked up screen, 1280 x 800 resolution, do not know which vga/wxvga etc I need to buy to replace. Dell show it as being a Y599 screen....


justinbur167 it's a WXGA screen. I don't know if yours is Glossy, or a Matte finish.

This is one example,

http://www.laptopscreen1.com/ls1-froogle.shtml?brand=Dell&family=Inspiron&screen=1525&size=15.4&res=WXGA&backlight=1+CCFL

Here is another example,

http://www.laptopscreen.com/English/model/Dell/INSPIRON~1525/

You'll note that offerings list With Inverter, and Without, also Glossy, or Matte finish.

[An LCD screen cannot produce enough light by itself. A Backlight is used to provide the additional needed light source.

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

An Inverter is used to invert power from the laptop, for the LCD screen, and the Backlight ]

This is the Service Manual for the Inspiron 1525 Notebook PC, (Free),

Clicking on Display at the bottom of the first column, will provide information in replacing the LCD screen.

My dell inspiron 1525 notebook brightness is goes down,it looks very dark, whatshould i do?????


Press the Fn key and the up arrow key simultaneiously, this should increase the brightness. (down arrow key reduces the brightness)

If this does not increase or decrease the brightness, then the problem should be with the backlight or the backlight circuits. Please contact Dell for a replacement of the LCD panel (if your computer is in warranty) if not contact a local tech who can replace the LCD panel or the Backlight for your laptop

Inspiron 1525 screen goes black, image is very faint on the screen. computer remains on. What is the problem


Sounds like the backlight for the screen has died the part isn't that pricey but having it put in will probably cost almost as much as replacing the laptop. You can always plug into an external monitor, however that is not very portable

Dell laptop screen goes blank when ac adapter plugged in


I believe I have found the problem with the 1525 that I am currently working on which has the same problem that you describe. Ultimately I think it's a problem with the inverter in the LCD. When the laptop is powered by battery the brightness is lower than full. When I plug in the power adapter the brightness goes to "full" and I hear a faint sizzle and the LCD's backlight goes off. Same as if you hold the Fn key and press the up arrow to brighten it, it will do the same thing when you reach near the full brightness. So for now I have fixed this problem by going in the Power Options and clicked on Adjust the display brightness on the left. Slide the slider to the left on the "plugged in" part and now when you plug it in it shouldn't make it go blank. I do want to note that I hear a faint buzz coming from the LCD when I plug it in. That must mean the inverter is faulty. WAY TO GO DELL!!!!!!

Computer seems to locked up.


The Bios battery is probably dead. It is installed on the motherboard, replace the battery.
