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.

Re: zd8000 LCD no display
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.

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.
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.
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.

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.
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!
