Laptopscreen not coming on lights and fan ok


When it is running if you hold a light up to the screen, can you see anything on the screen? What about if you connect another monitor to the computer does that work?
If you see something on the screen using a light, you have a bad inverter or back light.
If you see nothing on the screen and nothing on an external monitor, you have a bad motherboard.
If you see something on an external monitor but nothing on the laptop then you have a bad cable or display on the laptop.

Screen truns red to green to normal to red


Try it on another PC first, if it is still bad, read on.
When you have strange symptom like this, first thing to look for are the caps (bad caps with bulging tops) inside. Common problem with these Princeton and other brands as well as you can see in my pictures:

Chances are the video card is bad if the display is black and the external monitor isn't showing anything as well.

There is a field of capacitors on the power board that usually goes bad. I believe that there is a total of 6. When you look at the power board you should notice them. I have the capacitors if you need them. $2 each. Just check to confirm that they are swollen. and let me know the voltage and uF. good Luck. David

The most prevalent failure on these boards are the transformers and or the ic that controls the frequency of the lamp drive. More times than not you will find a bad transformer.

Monitor problem


I used to repair LCD monitor from Dell. It works for me. You might be using these following steps to examine what is the problem of your LCD monitor. After you turned PC on and monitor stopped working or went blank, you have to check that if you can see the image on the screen or not by shining a flashlight into the screen, not directly but find the best angle to the screen and take a look very closely. If you can see the icons or any image (Start menu), there will be a minor problem. This is because of CCFL lamps inside screen. Some of them were broken and it is very easy to replace. You don't need to do anything with the inverter board in this case. If you cannot see anything on the screen, there'll be some problems with inverter board. Hope this help!! If anything I can help you with, feel free to let me know.
Thank you,
