Question about Dell Latitude D800 Notebook

Dell D800 display out of order

I found out yesterday that the reason my LCD kept dimming after a few minutes of use was that the backlight is broken. I'm planning on just purchasing a new display to replace the old one. Can you provide me with the steps involved? Also, any recommendations on places where I can buy just the display?

    I found out that I can simply purchase a new backlight for around $15.00 and replace the broken one. Can anyone help me with backlight installation instructions for Latitude D800?

You can find a great many displays for sale on e bay from great places for rather cheap. I just repalced the mother board on my Inspiron 600m for $119 direct from Japan right off the line. As for replacing, it is rather easy.... there are little rubber stoppers around your screen about the size of pincle erasers. Under these is screws, undoo the screws to remove the plastic housing. Then where the power button is, that strip of plastic comes up easy from either the left or the right... you will see a little slot for a small flat head scew driver to go in to pry up the side. Pry it up and (make sure you have the screen laying flat ie, all the way open) and pull the strip up but not to hard, it should come up pretty easy. This will give you access to the connection for the cables to the screen. Then it is just undooing the screws that mount the hinges and then screen from the back pastics and then repeating in reverse.


The following is a link to a 15.4" lcd for the dell D800 on ebay that includes the plastics and hinges, so all you would have to do is remove the plastic by the power button and then it is plug n play.

Sounds to me like a power inverter. Fix it yourself with the parts found on Ebay at a cheap cost to yourself. The entire Dell E173FP 17" power inverter is selling for $29.99 plus shipping.

The fix can be found at: http://syscon.wordpress.com/2007/07/13/dell-dell-e172fpb-lcd-backlight-repair/

Dim screen


Its going to be either the lcd or the inverter more then likely. Go ahead and unhook the lcd cable from the motherboard and the back of the LCD. Reseat the cable into the LCD and the motherboard. If its still dim then the best thing to do is to replace the LCD cause it comes with the inverter.

Dull laptop screen back light


You may have a faulty CCFL lamp. A faulty CCFL lamp may have the following symptom: Screen flashes on and off or displays reddish pink hue. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering and/or with dim display or appear black. Picture flickers on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replace the CCFL lamp.
To determine if the video card or the LCD is faulty, connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight or a faulty inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp. Usually the CCFL lamp fails before the inverter.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

I have a Dell laptop D505. The laptop powers up but the screen display is very dim. I can't see the image on the monitor. I've tried to manually increase the color/brightness button and nothing changes. ...


Sounds like your inverter or your backlight is failing. The inverter is an easy repair, the backlight can be replaced but it involves taking the LCD panel apart, The backlight comes installed on new screens. I can include a service manual below and possibly a generic guide to backlight replacement....

Dim Laptop screen


It could either be your power settings dimming it (battery saver mode), or more likely when you replaced the screen, you replaced the backlight with the one that came with it. The replacement backlight is probably not as good as the one you had. You can try putting your other backlight in it (the backlight is that circuit board near the hinge that you plug in when you switch the screens out). Since it's going in and out, I'd check the power settings first though.

I've also had that, The FN and brightness I've not determined, as I changed LCD panels, however, components in the LCD screen can be swapped out, cable and inverter and backlight (<-very hard to do!!) and the ATI graphics board is mounted to the mainboard, for the C600 they are affordable
