Dell XPS M1330 Backlight Problems

LED screen, I've had it for almost 2 years, about a year ago (just after warranty expired) the backlight started to sometimes not work when I turned on my laptop, or just opened it while it was sleeping. Sometimes it'll be fine, but most of the time the backlight won't turn on. I can see the screen itself is working, but without the light I can't see good enough to do anything. Hoping I won't have to replace the entire screen?

Really does sound like a backlight problem. They usually don't cost much and are easy to replace if you are good with a screwdriver.

SOURCE: led backlight on display for m1330 xps dell

This model laptop uses a CCFL lamp for the backlight, it does not use LEDs for backlighting.
The CCFL lamp is attached to an inverter which supplies high voltage to this lamp.
For details on how to install and or replace CCFL lamps go to
www.lcdparts.net for information and parts.

I assume you are not replacing the whole LCD screen.

The sreen of my DELL XPS M1330 suddenly does not lght up!


It can be either the display is dead or it is a loose connection. If you are still covered by warranty then I would suggest you to contact the dell technical support. They will replace the part for you.
However if you don't have a warranty then you can buy this part from dell online store (the display) and you can fix it on your own - http://ahwee.com/how-to-disassemble-laptop-dell-xps-m1330 follow the instructions here to dismantle your laptop and refix it with the new parts. If you find any troubles doing so; please let me know; I will help you further.

Dell blue screen of death


posting the stop error code and what you are doing when error occurs would be helpful. If you are getting blue screens and have pixelation of video, artifacting or other Video weirdness, then you may have a defective motherboard. If you have video corruption, and the system is in warranty or if the warranty has expired in the past year, contact Dell tech support for a motherboard replacement.

The screen on my husband xps 1330 turns to lines.The computer is just a few days over a year old. I belive that this is a common problem with this computer. Please can you let me know what can be done to...


Yes, this is a very common problem with the M1330 due to a flaw in the Nvidea graphics processor chip. It also affects laptops from several other manufacturers, including some models of Apple laptops. The chip overheats and fails. Dell has supposedly extended warranty coverage by an extra year for this particular problem only. My daughter's M1330 was repaired under warranty for this issue.

Dell XPS M1330 - Backlight not working


If you are having issues with a backlight I would check the lcd inverter first. It is usually 20 dollars on ebay. I would avoid contacting dell as they are no help to people that are out of warranty.

Dim Screen when Power is Unpluged


If you see a very dim image or black screen or flicking image on the LCD screen it means you have a backlight problem.

Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power it up, 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 and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.
