You have a defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom: Screen flashes on and off or displays reddish pink hue. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering with dim display or appear black. Picture flickers on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replace the CCFL lamp.
To determine if the video card or the LCD is faulty, connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight. It could be a faulty inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out; usually the CCFL lamp fails before the inverter.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

Charging and monitor issues


If your AC Adapter and Power Cord is working fine, then your new battery has a problem if it will not charge. Just because it is new does not mean it will work.

As for your Monitor, try the steps below. Because it works with an external monitor, we know your Video Card is working fine, so the problem is either the LCD Inverter or the Lcd Screen itself is bad.

Shine a flashlight on the dark screen to see if you barely see the icons on the desktop. If so, then the LCD Inverter is bad.

If you see no icons by shinning a flash light and the external monitor works, then your screen is bad. If you see no icons by shinning the flash light and nothing shows on the external monitor, then most likely your video card is bad.

farooq473, replace the Inverter.

1) An LCD screen cannot produce enough light by itself. A Backlight is used to help provide the needed light.

2) An Inverter is used to provide power for the LCD screen, and the Backlight.

An Inverter boosts power up for the LCD screen, and lowers it for the Backlight.
90 percent of the time a bad Inverter is the problem.
A Backlight usually goes out all at once, Inverters slowly 'die'.

Dell Support > XPS 1210 Notebook PC > Service Manual,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/xpsM1210/en/SM/index.htm

In the list click on > Display
Now click on Display Panel.

Dell doesn't show, and describe how to replace the Inverter.
When you click on Display Panel, you are looking at an exploded photo showing the Display Panel removed.
Scroll down to the next small illustration.
Has 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 pointing to the Display Panel.

5 shows you a pull tab to release a flat cable from the Inverter. The Inverter is the small circuit board to the left of the pull tab.

This is not advertising for this website. Just an example to show you what the Inverter circuit board looks like.

This is Not a Dell XPS 1210 Notebook PC. It is a guide for replacing an Inverter in a Dell Inspiron 1525 Notebook PC, but I wanted you to have photos, and instructions for the basic procedure.
After you have repaired over 100 laptops, you'll realize that they all have the same basic procedures.
Just different parts.

http://www.insidemylaptop.com/replace-lcd-screen-inverter-dell-inspiron-1525-laptop/

3) Be SURE ALL power is removed from the laptop before you start.
Remove the AC adapter (Charger) and Battery.

4) You should follow Anti-Static Precautions implicitly. It would be best if you bought, and wore an ESD wrist strap. (Electro Static Discharge) Connect the alligator clip to a good ground source.
(For example, I connect to the metal frame of an empty desktop computer case)

The cost averages from $3 to $12.
A $3 ESD wrist strap will do just fine.
This is an example of an ESD wrist strap,

5) Use a multi-compartment container for the various screws you will remove.
Label each container for the area the screws came out of.
You DO NOT want to mix them up!

You can use a clean egg carton in a pinch. Label each egg holder.

My dell inspiron laptop 1000 screen turns dark every few seconds. if I close the computer half way and open it,it stay bright for a few seconds and turns dark again


This is your back light on your lcd display, To prove that have a flash light handy when it goes dark point the flash light at the screen and you should see the screen and that would mean right there you got a back light going out or the inverter that powers it is going bad. Etherway if this is not your area of work you need to tech it to a computer tech local to have it repaired.

Thanks for being considerate with your ratings and feedback today.

Manually flashing a Dell XPS 1330..


Ok when you use the BIOS software to re-flash the BIOS THAT file will already be BINARY code. You make a bootable disc, on this disc you have the BIOS Reader/Flasher, and the Binary file to be Flashed. Now you boot up on the disc. When at the prompt, you type in the name of the Flasher, and the binary file name & press enter, if all OK the software wil address the BIOS and re-flash it with the new data. when finished you will reboot and now, hopefully you are back. The BIOS file will be available from DELL's web site usually where the Driver downloads are ... or you could go here I found it for you. http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&releaseid=R178150&SystemID=XPS_M1330&servicetag=&os=WLH&osl=en&deviceid=14178&devlib=0&typecnt=0&vercnt=4&catid=-1&impid=-1&formatcnt=1&libid=1&fileid=242504
Also on that page there is exact installation instructions too. GL

XPS 1330 screen turns black


My first guess is that your video card is starting to go bad. My second guess is the processor needs to have its heatsink reseated. If it is under warranty I would have dell repair it so you don't incur the charge of a new video card.

No response when i turn xps on.


the monitor may have been toggled off.... usually this is a function key and another key at the same time. examine the keys for one that looks like a monitor unless you have the manual... it will tell you there how to change it.

Boot into Safe Mode and change the video resolution to the lowest resolution supported. Reboot the machine normally. The problem should have disappeared. From here you can readjust your display resolution to any higher resolution supported by the system if you wish.
