I have a fujitsu c series life book labtop. screen really dark

Hello, sorry for the question.
I have a labtop that the screen goes really black and you can hardly see the info on the screen.
It happend just like that, one day working the next day when turned on it does not.
I know the battery is bad it only holds about 30 minutes of energy but I always have the lab top plugged in.
Now is the screen broken?

Can I get the screen back?

I also have a hook up on back for a another monitor I plug into with a monitor but do not know how to get that to work .

Thanks for any help in advance.

    Thanks for the help but that did not do the trick.



    I plugged in the monitor and hooked up and turned on the labtop



    The monitor said:

    dpms

    please check signal



    Nothing came on.



    I even tried another monitor and that would not come on either.



    I heard something about pressing fn- f5 or f7 and tried those things and did not see anything .

    after rechecking the battery it only holds about a few minutes of power.



    Thanks for any help

I have this problem myself at the mo with a fujitsu siemens amilo laptop, the brightness up is fn + F8 on my laptop though this has only helped slightly. I have to have my desk lamp shining on the screen to be able to see anything. I think it may be a problem with fujitsu LCD screens. If I find a solution will let you know.

Hello dear sir i have an old samsung labtop


You may 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 the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out, this is the most likely case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

My laptop displays very dark


Unfortunately, (Isay that a lot on this site), your lcd screen is backlit with tiny flourescent lights, sounds like these have been broken not much to do except talk to a local tech and hope that he has an lcd screen to swap or steal parts from.
Sorry my prognosis is not better...

Fujitsu c series labtop screen goes blank, the hooked up to a monitor, starts to work then says out of frequence and goes blank


The video resolution and/or frequency that's set in windows is not supported by the monitor you have plugged in. Restart the PC in VGA mode (hit F8 after the BIOS messages but before any Windows messages) and change the video settings to something basic, such as 800 x 600 @ 60 Hz. Then restart the machine normally.
