The backlight may be going or has gone out, is it plugged in or running on batteries? when plugged in it should be bright with a battery is usually dies down so as not to use alot of energy.

If that does not help, try function key and making it darker, I know that sounds weird but sometimes it gets stuck in a weird loop, My dell laptop does it all the time.

go into the BIOS settings and tell it to use the LCD/Monitor as a display.

or

press fn key+(F5 or F7 or F8) 1x or 2x or 3x.....

Fn key combination. The Fn key is located at the lower left of the keyboard, normally between the CTRL and the ALT key. Toshiba uses Fn-F5 to toggle between the laptop LCD and an external display. IBM or Lenovo uses FN-F7, Acer varies with the model, using Fn-F5, Fn-F3, Fn-F8, Sony Fn-F7, Dell Fn-F8, HP or Compaq, Fn-F4. There are variations with the age of the laptop and not all manufacturers have standardized on a key combo across the whole range, but you can usually figure it out from the little graphics on the function keys that line the top of the keyboard.

No brightness visible on screen, but positioning at an nagle you could faintly see the proram open.Tried adjusting light dimmer but tono avail.e


Hello,

try pressing Fn + F8 to increase the screen brightness and Fn + F7 to reduce brightness.

If this does not make any difference, then it means your screen bulb is dead and needs replacement.

Once you replace your screen bulb, your screen will brighten up again.

Good luck.

The screen is black on start up. No image at all.


The dv1000's were a limited edition notebook withmany issues. the motherboard going on them was one of them. connect the motebook to a desktop monitor if you have one and simultaneously press Fn + F4 to use the monitor as a screen. If nothing happens begin crying. Time to buy a new laptop. You information is safe but you need an IDE/SATA PCI adapter to view the files on another computer. If you were using XP, i hope you didn't password protect it making it private. That will be problem number 2.

HP DV1000 screen too dim


The 4 most common problems with dim lcd's on a laptop are boken screens, bad power inverter, bad florescent bulbs or a broken cable.

You can test the power inverter with a meter.

There should be 2 bulbs. If your screen is dim and your inverter is good and you can still make out what is on the screen, you probably have a bad bulb. If you can't determine which bulb is bad you'll have to replace both.

In my opinion, the easiest way to handle this is to replace the whole screen. Yes, it's more exspensive, but consider that it is most likely to fix your problem. A replacement screen comes with the power inverter, both bulbs, and the cable; already assembled and ready to install.

Pavillion dv1000 back light does not work


Well, I believe the reason why it isn't working is because:
The backlight only works when your at the dark or at a low light condition.
If not press "fn" and press the backlight increaser on the top of the keyboard.


Hope this helps!!

The backlight on my HP pavilion dv1000 notebook went out and I am trying to run another monitor as my primary monitor.


when you boot it up after you see the main screen, I know that you can barely see but you can see something, on your keyboard there's a key that have 2 screens like this: [_]/[_], it could be by F7 or on it, well you would have to hold down the Fn ( function ) button then press on that key and it will switch from the LCD display from your laptop to a monitor from a desktop, which is the connection you have on the back of your laptop.
