Screen went dark

My Compaq V2000 recently started having screen "display" problems. At first there was distortion and discoloration........and it has advanced to a completely DARK screen, as if a bulb went out. The info is still on the screen but to see it I need a flashlight!!! Does anyone know if this is an easy fix, the computer still works great besides this

My Compaq Presario v2000 will turn on but the screen is just black what do I need to do to fix it?

Can you see any image on the screen in a dark room, using a flashlight sometimes helps. An image will be most visible right after you turn the laptop on, when the logo appears. If you can see the image but it is dark you need a new probably backlight inverter which is a relatively easy and cheap repair - I usually charge less than $50. JC Hunter

Compaq laptop with dark screen

It is possible that the problem is in the video card - that it's just not turning on the backlight. But it's so much more common for it to be the backlight or inverter that I'd try to get a second opinion.

Have you try external monitor? If it's still same, the LCD screen back light or the inverter of the LCD screen was faulty, but yours most likely the inventor of the LCD screen was faulty, it's only can be repaired by components level tech.

Try pressing Fn-F4 a couple times. Sometimes people accidentally enable the external screen and disable the internal one. If this doesn't work, try plugging an external screen in. If the external works then you might have a dead display.
