    No, there is no faint image on the screen. I even purchased another set of screen and inverter, and I have the same problem. this is laptop HP zv6130us version widescreen.

    I replaced the cable also.

    hinge can be bought in the ebay.
    cable replaced. rehooked cable several times. Simple solutions have been applied, such as inverter, cable connection, cables. Only thing left is the motherboard?

    I noticed the lcd screen is made by HannsG from China. I have s set of LCD monitor for desktop, and it went out less than a year. My guess is electronics from China means trouble in short time frame.

    My IBM ThinkPad 560X LCD is dark, but can see a fade of the background when the lights from the room are on. Can't see screen at all if lights are off. And the light adjust bar on right side is up and still dark.

I have a problem with my hp laptop monitor's hinges, could you link where you were able to purchase those hinges?

Also, make sure you monitor's ribbon cable isn't missing any wires or that all of those wires are fully contacting.

Make sure to check that it's plugged in on both ends - at the motherboard and on back of the screen.

The other possibility is that your inverter got shorted out somewhere along the way. Try shining a flashlight on the screen - if the cable is plugged in ok you will see a faint imge.

    Then the next logical thing is a failed cable - it's the only part you haven't replaced. Go by the part number on the cable itself.

How to remove screen from HP pavilion dv6 2012ax


it might be just your inverter its inside the lower part of the screen
it plugs in and lights up the back light its cheap but you need to take apart the screen bezel and if you change inverter change the cable too
these are not expensive parts its just doing it right and maybe not fix it but a cheaper way to isolate the problem

My hp dv5000 screen is blank


Problem can be;

A) Graphics chipset
B) Video Cable
C) screen Inverter
D) LCD screen

Let's diagnose, and find out.

A) Graphics chipset:

To start off with, the Pavilion dv5000 series of Notebook PC's; is NOT known to have a problem with the graphics chipset.
The Pavilion dv2000 series, Pavilion dv6000 series, and Pavilion dv9000 series; does.

1) Laptop OFF, monitor OFF, connect a VGA monitor to the VGA port; on the laptop.
The VGA port is on the Left side of the laptop, and located towards the rear.

This is a general example of a VGA connector (port), and VGA Cable,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_Connector

Scroll down a little for VGA Cable example.

You can use a CRT type of monitor (Looks like a small TV), or a flat LCD screen monitor if it has a VGA cable.

Turn the monitor on. If a CRT type allow it to warm up.
Turn the laptop on.
By factory default settings, the display should show on the external VGA monitor.
IF not:

There are at least 3 display options available;
1) Internal monitor of laptop ONLY
2) Internal monitor of laptop AND external VGA monitor
3) External VGA monitor ONLY

Press, and hold down on the Fn key, and at the SAME time tap once on the F4 key.
The F4 key is the Display Toggle-Over key.

Still no? Hold the Fn key down again, and tap once more on the F4 key.

No display on external VGA monitor, suggests a problem with the graphics chipset.
(Most of the time it is a problem with the Mounting, of graphics chipset TO motherboard. If this proves to be your problem, state in a Comment )

Display on external VGA monitor means the problem is the Video Cable, or inside the Display Assembly.
(screen Inverter or LCD screen)

B) Video Cable:

The Video Cable plugs into the motherboard, in an area under the Switch Cover.

(Left side.
Switch Cover is the plastic cover above the Keyboard, and below the LCD screen. Has the Power On Button, LED indicator lights, etc in it)

It then loops by the left Hinge, and goes up into the Display Assembly.
There is a small separate wire that comes from the main Video Cable, and connects to one side of the screen Inverter.
The main part of the Video Cable goes on, to connect to the back of the LCD screen.

Example of Video Cable,

http://www.batterycentury.com/hp-430531-001-cable-p-215726.html

Click on image to enlarge.
The wide connector you see at the top/left, connects to the back of the LCD screen.

The wide connector at the bottom/right, connects to the motherboard.
The single cable (Wire) coming off at the bottom, connects to one side of the screen Inverter.

Just due to normal repeated opening, and closing of the laptop; the Video Cable may become pinched.
This leads to it being pulled on, and may also lead to damage of the Video Cable.
(Stretched/Broken wires)

Procedure is to Physically check the connections of the Video Cable. Visual inspection alone will NOT do. You need to physically see if you can plug the connection in tighter.

1) ALL power removed. Remove the AC adapter (Charger), and Battery.
2) Remove the Switch Cover.

[Switch Cover is just that. A Cover. I will give a link to a free Service Manual from HP Support, towards the bottom of this solution ]

Try to plug the Video Cable connection at motherboard, in tighter.
Once done reinstall the Battery, and attach AC adapter. Plug AC adapter into power.
Turn the laptop on.

Still no? Turn laptop off. (Hold down on Power On button)
Remove ALL power again.

This time check the Video Cable connections at screen Inverter, and back of LCD screen.

The plastic frame in front of the LCD screen is the Display Bezel.
Example,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/447997-001-HP-Pavilion-LCD-Display-Bezel-DV9000-Series-w-Webcam-GENUINE-/170992584210?pt=US_Laptop_Screens_LCD_Panels&hash=item27cff3c612

Service Manual indicates to remove Display Assembly from laptop, in order to remove Display Bezel.
IMHO this = NO.
I think you can remove the Display Bezel, without having to remove the entire Display Assembly.

This video details removing the Display Assembly.
Shows replacing the LCD screen.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NNyvf4KqeIY

What my concern is with removing the Display Bezel, is the integral Hinge Covers that are a part of it.

I believe the Display Assembly can be tilted far enough back, that the Display Bezel can be removed, and carefully ease the Hinge Covers out/off at the same time.

Why not just remove the Display Assembly?
A whole lot less stuff to reconnect, after you have checked the LCD screen connection of the Video Cable, and screen Inverter connection.

After disconnecting the LCD screen from the Hinge Brackets, you just tilt the LCD screen forward, and check the Video Cable connection.
Then slightly tilt the Display Cover back, so the LCD screen can rest against it, and reinstall power.

Connections are plugged in tighter, and this proves to Not be the problem, go on.
(Don't forget to remove ALL power again)

The Screw Covers are made of synthetic rubber, or plastic.
They are held in place by a type of rubber cement.
I like to use a computer pick, (Much safer than a blade!), and lift up at the base of the Screw Cover.

I also like to GENTLY stick them to the Display Bezel for safekeeping. (They like to stick to the tool, your fingers, and it seems passing cars. "Oops, dropped one. Where'd it go? Hmmmm)

If you are careful with them you can reuse them. (Doesn't stick anymore? Apply a TINY dab of rubber cement to them, with a toothpick)

Screws removed, I suggest cut a piece of thick construction paper, that just fits the inside edges of the Display Bezel.
Helps prevent scratching the LCD screen, from your fingernails, when you go to flex the Display Bezel, and remove it

The LCD screen is an Assembly of layers. They are held in the factory aligned position, by the metal Screen Frame which surrounds them.

There are screws that hold the Hinge Brackets TO the Screen Frame, and there are screws which when removed, will take the Screen Frame apart.

ONLY remove the necessary screws which hold the Hinge Brackets, TO the Screen Frame!

HP pavilion tx 2130 screen becoming loose on hinge, in open/close movement. (swivel function unaffected)


In the screen section after remove the front plastic around the LCD you will see some screws holding the LCD display in place. Sometimes these get loose over time. If you can locate and remove the screws " usually under little pads or stickers " and pull off the plastic case around the LCD screen " usually held on by some clips as well " you will easily have access to the hinge screws from there just tighten them down and make sure there no broken off the housing for the screen. Then place the front panel back on and screw is back on and you should be good to go again,

Hp v2010us screen is almost black, but i can see extremely dim


I have fixed a few laptop screens with this problem ...it is usually the lcd inverter ...somtimes if you just unplug and plug back in it may work , but usually a new one is in order .....The inverter is a small cuircut board just behind the plastic cover at the bottom of the lcd screen ....to get to it you probly need to remove the rubber protectors around the face of the screen and there are screws behind them ....not sure about your model but maby do a search for replacing the screen on it and you will get pictures that show you how to take it apart.
Hope this helps
