Question about HP Compaq Presario V2000 Notebook
My laptop was fine till one day I turned it on and had a black screen. I connected it to an external monitor and all is well with that computer works fine. the little button on top left side that gets pushed and puts the computer in sleep mode when the lid is closed, if i play with that a little I can see the screen for a second till it goes into sleep mode. Before I buy a new LCD for it I just wonder if that button could be stuck or something making the screen black?
I know this is stupied but I had the same problem and it is fixed now - here goes techies - I called HP and of course they were giving me the story out of warrenty - i could pay to talk to them and all the other stuff. They had no clue and neither did I. However in the discussion i had to give them the model number "turned the thing over to find it" When i opened it and tried again it worked. I then moved it and had the same problem - once again turned it over and it worked. I have no clue what I did but I am going to take it in to have it looked at. Can someone tell me what happened?

Fixed! Saw the screen with a flashlight, tested on an external vga - everything OK. Took a chance ordered an inverter $15.00 shipped on ebay! Laptop is working again, thanks Coldcut!

If it`s the same as the NX 9030 + various others with the same chassis, then change the switch, or unplug it and the backlight should come on. even if it`s not try it anyway, you`ve got nothing to lose, i do know that the lid switch on the nx9030 also turns off the backlight when the lid is closed and can stick in a closed position(it happened to me)
hpoe this helps...piratone

i cannot tell you the exact problem you are facing but you can try connecting to other monitor...when the laptop is on right click on it even if you see nothing. press down arrows six times and then right arrows twice..press enteer..this will make your attached moniter display the graphics...from there you can further see what the problem..i did it and it worked.

If it is lcd switch or as some call the latch switch this is a little micro swith that needs replacing.I have the same problem,and at the moment trying to find the part.

As you can see the screen with a flashlight then the lcd and video card and cable are fine,
That leave the inverter and the support cable to it.
if you installed another inverter then the lamps are bad, but you have to be certain the inverter is putting out HV, else the support cable and circuit that turn on the inverter is at fault. it is best to trouble shoot in the bios screen , and be certain that you have the brightness turned up.

My lid switch has lost its springiness. The monitor backlight goes off randomly. I had to take off the switch plate which covers the buttons above the keyboard to diagnose it. The lid switch actually rocks back when you push it down, and if I pull it forward the backlight comes back on. I've tried pushing on the connector to verify that it isn't the pressure on the board causing the fix. It really seems to be the rocker lid switch. My laptop is labeled V2000 but it is actually something like a V2600. Anyone know the part number for the lid switch?
