Question about HP Pavilion zd8000 Notebook
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.
