Power supply will be the first place to check.
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

My T30 turns on but the screen doesnt work?


Try to attach EXTERNAL MONITOR to check if you have display from External Display and to confirm that your Laptop System is still working. If you got display from external monitor, therefore you have a faulty LCD / Inverter (gives your LCD a back-light)

This is an example of an inverter going out slowly. Usually, they tend to just go out and you diagnosed correctly when you seen the faintness on the screen and tested with another monitor.

The Dell inverter will not fit, more than likely. They are all different sizes, lengths, etc.

I would recommend just replacing the screen of the Toshiba. You can get one for less that $50.00 on eBay and it will save you alot of hassle trying to swap out the inverter (my opinion).

the problem is most likely you graphics card, if you have installed more than one graphics card you will most likely not get any picture from this.

When turned on, it immediately turns off after about 5 secs. can u help me find solution regarding this? thanks


Sounds like it could be that the lcd is going bad in your monitor. Try hooking up a known working monitor to your computer and if you get the video to stay on then you know the original monitor is bad. If you cant' get the video to stay on even with the known working monitor then you know that the video card inside of the computer is bad.
