My burner won't burn in my dell Studio 1537


Inside the DVD drive is a laser optical eye. This eye get's dirty.

Suggest remove ALL power, then open DVD drive tray. Use a can of compressed air for computers to clean, and aim down towards the bottom of the tray.
(Remove AC adapter {Charger}, and Battery)

Disk cleaners have the tendency to wipe the 'gunk' off, then wipe it back on.

Also make sure you still have burner software. Nothing like going to use the DVD burner one day, only to find the Nero burner software was just a trial.

It's FREE, and NOT a trial.

Plus a DVD drive is mechanical. Wears out over time. Has a 'Life Cycle'.

http://www.laptopdvdrw.com/dell-studio-1537-slot-cd-dvd-rw-burner-drive-p-37670.html

Just an example. You may find a better price from another reputable dealer.

The DVD drive is held in with ONE screw,

The fault could be a faulty inverter board that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or the CCFL lamp is faulty. The CCFL lamp is a mini fluro lamp that provides the back lighting for the screen.

Dell STUDIO 1537 black screen on first boot up ??


The inverter maybe faulty, it supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp and would cause the screen to be black.
Since it was just repaired, I suggest you return it to Dell to have it repaired under warranty.

The back light is the whole of the screen, the screen is illuminated by a CCFL lamp (fluro tube) on the bottom of the screen. A inverter supplies high voltage to this CCFL lamp.
If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp. Please click on this link and follow my instructions to identify the fault and possible fix :-

What is the most common problem with A Dell Studio 1537 LED backlit LCD not lighting up?


LCD inverter board. They're pretty simple to replace and cost only bout $10-$15 on Ebay. If you do it yourself just be careful taking off the plastic bezel from the screen.

My brightness control does not work just turned on and can not hardly see anything it is up and running what now


Have you tested it with an external monitor?

I would say you either have a damaged inverter board or screen baclight lamp. Usually the inverter board fails in one of the following ways:

1. When you turn on the laptop, the screen lights up for a short period of time and then goes dark. You still can see an image but it is very dark, almost invisible and definitely not usable. When you restart the laptop, the screen lights up and then goes dark again. The laptop works fine with an external monitor.
2. Your laptop turns on but the screen remains dark all the time. You still can see a very dim image outline. The laptop works fine with an external monitor.
3. The laptop screen works fine for hours or even days, but sometimes it goes very dark as it mentioned above. When you restart the laptop, the screen works fine again.

Inverter failure symptoms are very similar to backlight lamp failure symptoms and in most cases you cannot tell which one is causing the problem until you replace either the inverter board or the backlight lamp. From my personal experience, inverter boards fail more often than backlight lamps. If you have to guess, replace the inverter first.

Replaced LCD Inverter, now screen comes on and bright but choppy


Does the external monitor display a normal image?
If the images is OK then the video card is OK.
The inverter supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp which provides the backlighing and does not jumble the colors on the screen. If you get a pinkish hue or a flashing screen then this would indicate
the CCFL lamp is faulty.
From the description of the fault, it indicates that the fault could be a faulty video cable or video connector. Try reseating the video cable/connector on the motherboard.

Monitor black Replaced lcd inverter


Hi,
The Inverter just proved that the power up is just fine, and Video Card are just in perfect shape. Try to see if you can finde a replacement for the ccfl in the screen.

CCFL is Cold Cathode Flouroscent Lamp, a type of lighting LCD screens use to ulluminate the screen.

Try to turn on you laptop, you will then flash a light on the screen, you will notice there is display, only dimmed. This should work after you replace them just fine. :)

Lcd screen black on laptop. External monitor works.


Defective CCFL backlight may has the following symptom:
  • Screen flashs on red/pink and off.
  • Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal.
  • Picture flickering with dim display.
  • Picture flickering 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 replacing the CCFL lamp


Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power it up, 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 and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.
