Zd8000 LCD no display

Zd8000 powers up, all works fine. One day red tinge when starting up on screen - lasted only a few seconds. Then screen just went out.
Works with an external monitor. Checked settings, drivers, bios. All is fine

And on a certain angle looking at my zd8000 LCD - you can faintly see whats on screen.

The power inverter needs to be replaced. it involves removing the LCD opening the LCD bezel and swapping parts. Power inverters and much cheaper then LCD screens. You can take the LCD apart and find the part number on the power inverter or just search for one for your model laptop.

Sounds like your display went out to me. You may be able to replace it yourself, depending on your skill level/experience with electronic repairs. At any rate you'll need to find a reasonably priced replacement screen. I usually find New and Used ones on ebay and laptops for parts there and other internet classifieds and auction sites. You could also get a replacement through HP, but at an inflated price I'm sure. Since yours went out and it's not a simple repair, I would only consider a new replacement screen and after figuring the cost, resources that your laptop has compared to a new replacement, and time involved, only then would I determine whether it's worth repairing or not?

On the other hand, you could check the ribbon cable that connects the display to your Graphics card on the Board and re seat it to see if that cable has come loose causing your very dim display. My experience would lead me to expect the LCD to have run it's course though.

Happy tinkering and Good luck.

My screen has a pinkish overtone, when I restart everything looks normal for a few seconds after I log into my name and then it goes red again. Everything works fine, but it pretty much hurts my eyes.


That means the backlight on your LCD display is on its last legs. I say that but I have had laptops with the pink screen that lasted like that for over a year. Or, it might go dark tomorrow. It is not the inverter, which is an easy fix. Only a replacement of the backlight (a flourescent tube built into the display panel) will fix it. So Replace the backlight at repair shops...THANK YOU

sounds like your power inverter is going bad. replace power inverter and see how that works. Other issue if not solved is probably lcd screen. Inverter's can be found cheaper used if you use the serial number on your old inverter for searching, seeing as how inverters are often used on many different of machines. FYI.

I've got a Dell Inspiron 1525. When I power on the unit, the LCD shows the Dell startup screen, then a whinning noise and the screen goes black. Sometime shortly there after the Windows screen appears but...


This sounds more like a hardware issue. Now you say that the external display output is working fine. It could possibly be a problem with the lcd display itself shorting out. If there was a problem with the video hardware then I do not think you would be able to get the external display working either. The whinning noise could be coming from the lcd inverter.

Sony vaio vgn nr160e laptop - no display (intermittent). Attached monitor shows display fine and laptop works fine. Screen used to flicker intermittently (last few days).


You may have a defective CCFL backlight, it 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 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. It could be a faulty inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out, 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 also have the HP ZD8000 and mine as become a semi-mobile laptop as it only works with the power cord and I have multiple lines on my screen. Sof fare my keyboard appears to be fine. The other item I did...


Several problems here.

#1. You probably need to replace the battery. They do not last forever.

#2. The lines in the LCD screen indicate to me that the LCD panel needs to be replaced.

#3. Are you positive that you have a DVD/RW, or is it a CD/RW-DVD rom?

Good luck.

LCD starts to display for about 2 seconds then goes dark.


lamp(s) perhaps.... with an LCD monitor (the desktop kind) you can shine a lite behind it. if you can see things on the screen it's the lamps... if you can't it's something else.

Acer Laptop TM240 , display has green tinge....


This is one of two things.

The first is that the color settings in the advanced section of your display properties has been altered.

The second and unfortunately the more likely is that your lcd screens back light or cfl (compact fluorescent lamp) has began to fail, usually due to age.

If this is the case you can either replace the entire lcd panel or just the cfl. Changing the lcd panel is fairly straight forward, but changing the cfl while it is the cheaper option it is a much more technical job to complete.

Since the hardware route is expensive, have you tried to upgrade the software/drivers for the drive?

It looks like there's an incompatibility between the software, OS and hardware.


Hope this helps :) Kindly leave a rating. Thanks..

It could be a bad screen, but I'd suggest checking the screen cable connector (unplug and reseat it a couple of times). Also, check for any breaks, wear or fraying on the screen cable.
Have a super day!
