Question about Toshiba Tecra 8200 Notebook
I have been using this old laptop exclusively to play video. So I have not used the laptop's monitor for some time.
In order to use the laptop connected to the TV I had to switch video output modes by holding down "fn" & pressing F5 to toggle video modes.
But now, I want to use this laptop again as a laptop, with the laptop's LCD screen. I thought it would be a simple matter of disconnecting from the TV & toggling through the video modes to get the LCD back but that doesn't seem to be working. It was quite a while ago that I connected the 8200 to the TV, so while I can't remember, I'm wondering if I made a change in settings to deactivate the LCD. If I did I can't find it now to re-activate it.
Any help gratefully received,
Sounds like the inverter has gone out or backlight of the laptop has gone out.
you would normally see a logo or something when you removed the TV from it, you can boot dual lcd with laptop on and TV. so i doubt something is turned off.
when hitting FN and F5 usually take about 3 sec to refresh the screen. but looks like the LCD screen on the laptop has failed and need to be replaced or the Backlight or Inverter has to be replaced.
