Question about Compaq Presario Notebook
I have a Toshiba Satellite A305. It was playing music and working fine, and then the screen went black. I shut it down and left it a bit, but when I tried to start it back up it went red at first. After a second of the Toshiba screen at the very beginning of the start up, it went black and stayed black. This happens every time now. Before Windows comes up, I can press FN plus F5 for a second and get it to go red again briefly, but after Windows comes up, not even that works. I've tried the whole take out the battery and plug, press the start button for 60 secs and then add in the plug fix, but that won't work either.
My computer is from America, same as me, but I'm currently living in Japan. I also don't speak the language very well yet. So if there's a fix I can do, it'd be really appreciated! Can anyone help me? PLEASE? Thank you in advance!!
Its either the inverter in the screen or the backlight is blown. Hopefully its the inverter as they are quite easy to replace you just need to remove the front off your screen to get to it. There is videos on youtube showing how to do it. You can get them on Ebay about $10 . If its the backlight it requires a bit of patience and soldering a few wires again about $10 .If youre not confident take it to a shop not sure what prices in Japan are like? Good luck with it from Scott and please dont forget to vote
