If you have already replaced the screen...
Common problem when replacing equipment on laptops is that the "cable" goes into a flat housing that requires you to lift a little white "gate" then insert the cable and put the "gate" back down. Problems usually occur when snapping the "gate" back down. Pull the cable back out and be sure to lift the gate insert the cable and then put the "gate" back down. Once done give it a light tug and it should hold very firm and not move at all
Sounds like a backlight problem. Backlights can be replaced but it all depends on the make/model of laptop you have. Connecting an external monitor to your laptop also depends on the type of connection you have on the laptop.
Most (if not all) will have a VGA output which requires a standard 15pin VGA cable. Newer laptops might have DVI or Mini-DVI. Some even have HDMI. So ultimately, the type of cable you need really depends on the type(s) of output your laptop is able to display and the types of inputs your monitor supports.
You need an Video out, adapter cable, for your model Laptop, IF yours indeed does have the ability to TV out, the "output" is "Composite Video" and goes into the Composite Video "IN" on the TV. Audio is taken from Line Out in laptop & goes to AV audio in, via a Phono Jack to RCA converter plug. Also it must have correct drivers and be enabled and have desktop extended to the TV either Cloned or Spanned.
Usually one connects up to the TV, powers TV on & then Turn your laptop on.
You may have a Yellow RCA socket on the back/side of your laptop, otherwise you have to get a converter cable.
You could try to open the case and reattach te connectors going into the screen (reattach the other side of the cables as well). If that doesn't help, I'd return it to stoe, because yur screen, graphics card or motherboard is probably broken.
If your warranty has elapsed already, I'll help you replace the broken parts yourself.
I've had the same problem with two other unrelated HP input products in this area myself so I understand the pain. Media Center is not really well geared for nor is very friendly in the end user component input area. I'm assuming you've already tried playing a video file from your camcorder while setting up the Media Center input settings? Try a different software that will recognize your input card. Ideally, you should use any input software that came with the card itself from the manufacturer. Contact the manufacturer for a link to the original software bundle if you can't find it from their website or you may need to research your own replacement software solution for this product.

there should be a vga output its normaly black or blue on the side or back of your laptop its the cable that a monitor would plug into you can plug that into a vga input on most newer tv's or your laptop may have an S VIDEO out put which looks like a mouse or keyboard port and is usually yellow check your owners manual to see if you have these or look it up online then you just have to buy the proper cable to connect it I use an S video cable that converts to Audio video cables and plug it into my tv that way so im sure you can find a way to do it you may need some type of adapter once you know what your tv and what your laptop has for connections the only real reason i would recomend doing it is for watching movies from the laptop because the quality of the picture sucks for web surfing but is awesome for video in my experiances
