Some cameras have a button to toggle the back light on and off. It is possible that the old screen damaged the back light drivers on the circuit board. It is also possible the new screen is defective. I have seen both scenarios.

How to replace LCD panel on Toshiba Satellite M105-S3004 Notebook?


Plastic Display Bezel is not as simpy as you think. It is made of space-age plastic.

Procedure is the same as for a Satellite M110 series, and M115 series Notebook PC,

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-M115/remove-inverter-replace-lcd-screen.htm

Just to add;

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-M105/take-apart-notebook-1.htm

After the Screw Covers are removed, and the screws, from the Display Bezel, the Bezel can be 'popped' off.

The Bezel has plastic protrusions, or tabs, extruded from it's plastic frame. These tabs snap into place in the Display Cover. (Top cover of laptop)

There are tabs formed on the inside edge of the Display Cover, that the tabs from the Display Bezel, snap into.

When I started years ago, I used a guitar pick to ease the Bezel up, so I could get my fingertips under it. (OUTSIDE edge of Bezel. Not inside edge where the LCD screen is)

Now I don a set of anti-static gloves, and ease the inside middle edge of the Bezel, (LCD screen side), up. Then I start working towards one corner, until this portion pops free, and then I go towards the other corner.

Once you work a side loose, and the bottom, the rest of the Bezel starts popping free.

Although the Display Bezel looks to be flimsy, as stated previously it is made of a space-age plastic. Pretty tough stuff, really.
Just go slow, and use care.

When you hear the tabs pop up for the first time, you may think you have broken something. Nope.
Just wanted to state to ease your mind.

Make SURE the LCD screen you are purchasing is THE correct one.
An LCD screen, and the screen Inverter, are a MATCHING pair.

Crossover the manufacturer name, and model number on the back of the LCD screen, to the new one.
Or go with the LCD screen replacement manufacturer's information. B

If so, be sure there is a Return option, if the new replacement LCD screen proves to be the wrong one

[ An LCD screen does not produce light. It needs an additional light source.
A Backlight is the additional light source.

A Backlight is a CCFL.
Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp. (Bulb)
Similar to Fluorescent lighting used in homes, and businesses, but on a MUCH smaller scale.

(Some of the newer LCD screens use LED lights for a Backlight.
The Toshiba Satellite M105-S3004 Notebook PC, uses a CCFL for a Backlight)

A screen Inverter is used to convert the electricity (Power) from the laptop, for the Backlight, and the LCD screen ]

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

1.The Function key (Fn), and the F6 key are pressed to turn the Backlight off to conserve power.

2.The Fn key and the right side arrow key, are pressed to increase Brightness.

You have a TFT LCD monitor screen. (Thin Film Transistor)
The LCD screen cannot be seen clearly without a Backlight.

The Backlight is a CCFL. Cold Cathode Fluorescent
tube. Resembles a small fluorescent tube used in residential, and commercial lighting.

The Backlight can go bad after time, and weaken.
If so, it will have to be replaced.

Sounds easy, it isn't.

The TFT LCD monitor screen is made up of layers. It's enclosed in a thin metal frame. Resembles a picture frame.

The frame is removed, after removing the LCD screen from the laptop's top cover.

The LCD screen transparent outside layers, are separated partially from the rest of the LCD screen.
The Backlight is removed out of the side.

This gives you an example of removing, and replacing an average Backlight,

JUST REPLEACED LCD R52 AND THE SCREEN IS BLACK


You replaced the broken LCD screen in your laptop with a new screen but it’s not working.
Does this sound like your problem? Let’s find out what could be wrong and how you can fix it.
First of all, I assume that your new LCD screen is compatible with the old one. Different screens require different video cables. Make sure you new screen is compatible with your laptop.

You did some research and purchased a compatible screen, installed it into the laptop, turned it on and… The new screen is not working!!! What could be wrong?


Before you start to panic, check all cable connections again. Check connection between the video cable, LCD screen and inverter board. Reconnect cables just in case.
Take a closer look at the connection between the video cable and LCD screen. It’s possible you accidentally pulled the video cable from the connector during the screen installation.
The video cable has to be seated properly, all the way down.
Also, on some older LCD screens there are very thin pins inside the connector. Take a look inside the connector, make sure there are no damaged (bent) pins.
You can straighten bent pins with a very small screwdriver but this procedure requires a lot of patience and concentration.

Fortunately, most newer LCDs have a different type of connector, without fragile pins inside.
OK, you have reseated all connectors and cannot see anything wrong but the new screen still is not working. What’s next?

Remove the new screen and connect the old one. If the old one works properly (except the damaged area) but the new one is dead, apparently the new screen is defective and has to be replaced.


Hopefully it has warranty.
Here’s another scenario. The new screen kinda works. You can see a very faint image but there is no backlight.
If that’s the case, disconnect the new screen from the inverter board and plug in the old screen instead, as it shown on the picture below. If the backlight inside the old screen lights up, apparently the new screen has defective backlight lamp and has to be replaced.

Need instructions on replacing brocken screen on fuji A800 camera


Do you have the LCD screen already? If you don't, you can search the internet for Fuji A800 LCD and there are several businesses you can purchase an LCD screen from. Some even offer an LCD screen install service for a few dollars more than the LCD on its own.

If you have the LCD screen or have purchased it, it is usually pretty simple to install the LCDs, HOWEVER! (disclaimer here) the Fuji digital cameras almost always use a weird screw driver, we call it a tri-wing. It is not a phillips and it not a flat head screw driver, but rather, a 3 prong, kind of looks like a piece sign screwdriver. If you do not have this screwdriver, and your Fuji does take this screwdriver, you will have to purchase it as well.

After the case is apart, there is usually 1 or 2 ribbon cables holding the LCD down to the board, gently lift the tabs that hold the LCD and Backlight cables down, and pull the LCD screen out of the camera, and then reinstall the new LCD the exact same way. Make sure if the LCD has a protective film over it, and you don't want the film to stay on it, that you peel that off as well.

Good luck!

I need a new lcd screen for my fuji finepix s700, where can I find one??? My lcd screen on my Fuji film S5800 has stopped working. it is white with stream line colours through it. Can someone please help.


Sounds like your LCD screen is broken. Did you drop the camera? You may be able to find a screen or a broken same model camera with a good screen on eBay. Changing it out, however is NOT for the faint of heart. You will need tiny tools to work on tiny parts with very small electrical connections, a steady hand and nerves of steel with a service manual at your fingertips so that you disassemble only what is needed in the correct order and don't do additional damage. Still want to try it? I recommend taking it to a reputable camera store and getting a quote to repair it. Weigh that cost against the cost of replacing the camera. In the meantime, switch over to the Electronic View Finder. Good luck. (FYI: I will undertake the repair of anything short of a nuclear device, but I will not try a digital camera of any kind.)

Regarding LCD


If the LCD is still operational, then a self repair with self adhesive clear tape will do the trick. Some photoshops the UK sell a self adhesive film to put over screens as a protector[how about India anything like like over there?- what about mail order from the U.K. ? Try www,jessops.com -for the film that is As for a proper repair - then it will have be a full replacement only your local repair shop will be able to advise you of a price.
