The backlight of the screen goes dead while opening the screen. My assumption is that either the wire or switch to the backlight for power is broken. How do I dismantel the camera to fix the problem?

Its possible that the backlight is failing.

Try pressing the FN (function key) and the more light button, it most likely has a bright sun on it, possibly the up key.

Tip

Monitor LCD Screen Replacement With A Laptop Screen


This tip is for the typical PC tech with a shop full of dead laptops and monitors, looking to make an extra Monitor for bench testing malfunctioning PC's. Maybe you're a tinkerer and just have some spare parts laying around, and want to make something cool and easy. Either way, this tip is a fun way to make old dead parts work for you, rather than sitting in a corner gathering dust.

Replacing a Laptop screen is pretty easy if you take it slow.
LCD Monitor screens are actually easy to replace too, if you are careful not to crack anything getting one out and in again.

This tip doesn't address any of the typical replacement methods.
What this does is show you how to use a laptop screen in a standard Desktop LCD monitor.

Having already disassembled your Desktop monitor, and determining that one or both of your backlights is dead, you will most likely begin searching for sources of a new one. Before you do that, try testing both backlights in the dead monitor screen first by hooking them, one at a time to an inverter in a working laptop to verify that both are dead.

Most of the time, you will discover that only one light is dead, and this is where the fun begins.

At this point, you have a few choices to make.

1. Extract a working backlight from a cracked LCD, we all have a few of those lying around somewhere in just about any PC tech area.
2. With the extracted backlight in hand and the old LCD screen still attached to the monitors electronics, remove either of the sets of wires going to one of your backlights, leaving one still attached.
3. Now you can attach the light you extracted to the empty socket your original screens light attached to, while leaving the other one still attached.
4, Now, turn on the monitor and wait for the extracted backlight to come on, if it doesn't switch it with the other light socket plugged to your screen, and plug the opposite light wire back in.

This will do 2 things for you. First, it will be a quick test of your inverter, and second it will verify that you do or don't have at least one working backlight still functioning in your monitor.

Remember that with most LCD monitors, just one backlight can provide enough illumination for your screen to show a very crisp picture.
The problem appears though, when we decide that our existing LCD is dead because we dont see it light up.

The solution for this is to simply disconnect the dead light wire from the existing inverter plug leading to the LCD screen, then replacing that with a working light from the cracked screen without disassembling the LCD screen itself. If you did everything right, your old dead screen will be working as it should. Be sure you swap the backlight connecting wires so that your Bright/Dim controls work as they did before.

You see, most dual light inverters work the same as a standard twin tube household flourescent light. When one goes out, they both eventually stop working. So, adding that second light completes the circuit, then swapping light socket connectors turns your backup light tube into the primary light, instead of the secondary.

Now, if THAT trick didn't work, you can move on to the Laptop LCD trick, which is pretty much what you did before, except that the Laptop LCD usually only has 1 light tube. So for this to work, you can complete the lighting circuit by simply adding your spare backlight tube to the second open backlight connector, then installing the LCD to your monitor.

Many of these Laptop LCD screens are the same height and width as comparable Desktop screens, but they are also thinner, and will have to be glued or taped to the frame from the inside. Everything else connects exactly as the original screen, but may need to have wire added to the Laptop backlight wire so it reaches the power source.

I figured this tip was worth posting, since I just did this trick with a 15" polaroid HDTV/HDMI/HiDef Television/Monitor combo.
The model I have died a few months after it was bought new from Walmart, and the customer just didn't feel like paying $129 for a new screen.
Being the packrat I am, I just couldn't bear throwing it away, figuring that some day I would find a matching screen. As you can see, I got tired of waiting. The pictures of my project are below.

dc79966.jpg2e21d78.jpg

That bright line of light isn't the flash from my Camera, it's the flourescent light tube from a broken LCD screen placed on top of the steel housing.
The incidental effect of that light is that my back wall is a nice nitelite, and hooking up new components is a lot easier. Yes I could have blacked it out, but I think I like the added light behind the TV.

I hope this Tip comes in handy for you.

Pink screen


Problem can be;

1) Graphics chipset
2) Video Cable
3) screen Inverter (IF Used)
4) LCD screen

Diagnose to find out.
I need the laptop manufacturer name, and model number.
Model number can be found on the Bottom of the laptop.

Post back in a Comment.

A) Graphics chipset:

An external monitor is used to check, and see if the display is also pinkish on it; or it is OK. Info posted I need, I will detail this procedure out step by step.

Display good on external monitor means graphics chipset is OK.
(Mounting is usually the problem)
Means problem is screen Inverter (IF used), or Video Cable, or LCD screen.

B) Video Cable:

The Video Cable connects to the motherboard, in an area under the Keyboard, or under the Switch Cover.
(Depending on laptop design, Switch Cover may be an integral part of Palm Rest Cover)

From there it leads under, or close by the left Hinge; and then goes up into the Display Assembly.

IF, a screen Inverter is used, the Video Cable has a separate small cable that branches off; and connects to one side of the screen Inverter.
The main part of the Video Cable connects to the back of the LCD screen.

Just due to normal repeated opening, and closing of the laptop; the Video Cable may become pulled on, and/or pinched.
This can lead to a loose connection at the motherboard side, or LCD screen side. (and/or screen Inverter, IF screen Inverter is used)

Can also lead to a damaged Video Cable. (Stretched/Broken wires inside it)
This can cause a pinkish screen.

C) screen Inverter:

With Backlighting that uses CCFL/s for a Backlight, a screen Inverter is used.
(Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp)

For Backlighting that is LED, a screen Inverter MAY, or MAY NOT be used.
(First design LED backlighting seemed to. Later design LED backlighting, does not. Light Emitting Diode)

A screen Inverter is used to convert the power (Electricity), from the laptop; for the LCD screen and Backlight.
Screen Inverter going out, can cause a pinkish screen.

D) LCD screen:
Graphics chipset is good, Video Cable connections are good; no damaged Video Cable, screen Inverter is good (IF used); problem is LCD screen.

Awaiting manufacturer name, and model number.

Regards,
joecoolvette

I just replaced a broken led lcd screen on my emachines em-250 1162 netbook. The screen works fine when powered on, but when the computer is off, the screen stays on and white. I've checked all the...


Sounds as though you haven't wired the backlight correctly? This too should Go Off, when the screen does... are you sure it is correct screen? have you plugged in all plugs correctly? is the backlight inverter wired right? is the lid, open/close switch operating right/at all?

AOPEN LCD monitor


hi   
If you switch on your screen it just goes dead again. If this is the case then all you have to do is replace your backlights of your lcd. The backlight are florescent tubes Which are gas filled and they have a lifespan of plus/minus two to five years. Once the gas is depleted the backlights try to go on then switches off 

This problem occurs alot on all different lcd screens eg. ibm, gigabye and alot of other name brands and even the cheapies. the backlights come in different lengths so you have to open your screen and remove them carefully so that you dont damage or crack the liquid crystal. i have been repairing lcd screens for a while and this is the problem most of the time.This also affects your power supply as the backlights sometimes arc inside and causes the power supply to act funny the reason for power light flashing
You can order the backlights from RS components. They supply and sell backlights if you wish to do it yourself 
Glad to be of any assistance

Screen seems dead, but comes alive once in a while


 Sounds like it is a problem with the backlight. Or the switch controlling the backlight.
