Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook

1 Answer

Tried to repair my backlight and created new trouble...

Hi, I took my old sony laptop screen apart as the backlight went.
I put in the new backlight and it solved the problem of the hissing and flickering screen.
But, o dear, now the feed, which was fine before, does not come through.

The feed from the laptop itself is fine, it's just that I have done something to the screen when taking it apart/ reassembling.

All I have now when I switch on is a white screen with a little image of a tab about 1cm long along the the left hand side near the top of the screen.

I've no idea where to go from here as I thought I had put it all back together OK and I have no experience.

Any ideas most welcome.

The only thing left is the inverter board located just below the screen and is a common issue with a black screen, the inverter board drives the backlight behind the display.

My display screen goes on and off

I find sleep mode nothing but trouble, eventually corrupts window files over extended use, go into power options, go to stand by and select never and click apply, next go to hibernate "top right" and click, make sure the check box is clear, if not! remove check and click apply and restart your laptop.

My Sony VAIO Laptop screen is black. It worked fine, no issues2 days ago. Went to turn it on last night and it is black.. When light hits at a certain angle, I can see the desktop, I can hear the startup...

A faint and barely visible image on the screen indicates that the backlight(s) that illuminates the display isn't powering on. A device called an inverter board takes DC power from the laptop motherboard and converts it to AC power to power the screen backlight.
Before attempting anything below, be sure and remove the laptop battery and unplug the laptop
You need to take the screen apart and check to make sure that no cables are loose that are connected to the inverter board. If everything is secure, the next thing I would do is try to test the inverter board by hooking up an LCD from another laptop to the inverter and turning the laptop on to see if it lights up. If the other screen does light up, then the inverter board is likely good and your backlight needs to be replaced. Backlight replacement, unfortunately, can be very tricky for even an experienced technician, and many will opt to just replace the entire screen.
If you can't test the inverter board, then it might be worth it to order one and see if installing it fixes the problem.

Good luck!

My daughter has a Pavilion dv4-1220 at school and called that her screen went out. The tech guy at the university told her that repairs would probably be more than a new one would cost and that a monitor...

This is one of those 'it depends' things. Usually what fails is the backlighting system. A lcd screen works sort of like a projector. IT requires a backlight shinging through it to be able to see the images. If you (or your daughter) looks at the screen with the laptop running you may see a very ghost like image of the normal desktop display. If that is the case then your display is fine it is jsut the backlight. That can be fixed for about $100.

Since you won't have time to fix it the next thing to try is hook up an external monitor to the laptop. If that works then we have both confirmed that the backlight is the problem and more importantly you can use the laptop as sort of a desktop until you either replace or repair it. It also will let you save off all of her documents and important files before you send it in or replace.

If the external monitor does not work then the chances are the video section has failed. That requires that the mainboard be replaced that is worth about $299 for that model (plus labor and shipping). Not all is lost as you can take the drive out of the laptop put it in a external usb drive enclosure and read the files using a differant computer.

It may be past the 1 year warrenty for HP but is there other warrenty such as store? If you purchased from a chain store they usually try to sell you a store extended warrenty. This won't help you get it fixed that fast but after it at least would pay for repairs.

Screen Blacked Out...

Before taking it for repair connect it to a working external monitor to verify the video card is working. It probably will. You most likely experienced an inverter failure. The inverter supplies the high voltage and frequency required to run the backlights. In some cases it is the backlight that fails. If you are comfortable taking apart the LCD putting a new inverter is easy, it just plugs in. Be sure and verify that the cable that goes through the hinge is intact If it is damaged it is inexpensive but requires taking apart the top and bottom to replace.

D600 screen went very dim

You also might check to see if there is a HOTKEY setting for the brightness of the screen (usually FUNCTION or FN and then some key on the top row).

Replacing the backlight on an LCD is a very advanced and trouble prone procedure, unless you are good with soldering and taking things apart, you should probably use it with an external monitor or think about getting a new machine. :>|

No backlighting

You need to repalce the backlight/Screen altogether, or have someone do it for you. If the backlight has cracked then no amount of reconnecting will get it to work. Try one of the many Laptop repairers online to get a quote
