    When you say LCD backlight, do you mean the "lightbulbs" that light up the monitor?



    One of my co-workers had one of the "lightbulbs" go out on his laptop, but he said that he could still see stuff on it if he tilted it a certain way. Mine is completely black, not a thing on it.

    Same problem here - it's black - but I hooked it up to my desktop monitor and no problems and if I get close enough and tilt it a certain way i can see stuff on the screen - move the mouse around etc....

I'm having the same issues, i think my backlight just died on me -- when i turn on the computer its a pink tint screen then it just goes all dark, if i get up close enough then i can barely see some of the things. If it is the backlight, how much does that usually cost to fix?

The LCD inverter is what controls the backlight display. If it goes bad the screen does not light up.

Could be a problem with the LCD backlight or the LCD ribbon connector fault. I would recommend taking it to a tech to get it serviced.

Latitude B130 screen works great then cuts out to complete black, works with external monitor


Are you sure that the display is not set for external monitor only? Also take bright flashlight and shine on the display. If you can see the images then the problem is with the back light and usually caused by a bad inverter. Some times you can get the back light or inverter bu most times it is easier and cheaper to replace the entire display.

Laptop Monitor Problem - I have a Toshiba Satellite Laptop. I had a system crash and I think I may have had a second problem with my monitor on my laptop showing, it went black and flickers on and off. ...


Possible disconnect of the wiring harness from the LCD to the motherboard? Might just need a new screen, but always check the simplest first. Flickering may imply faulty wiring or a lose connection in my opinion.

you could have accidently changed to external monitor with Fn +F(the number is 8 on my comp but could be 5 on yours-check keys on top of the keyboard it has a picture rectangle / little TV), anyways to check that attach external monitor to your laptop(must have a VGA cable) if you have a picture on external monitor try Fn + F(depends on what you have on ur keyboard) it should bring you a window with choices to choose laptop LCD or external LCD choose 1st one .
hope that is it.

HP Pavilian external monitor color problem.


The easiest thing would be to check your cable for a bent or loose pin. Next put another external monitor on the laptop. The circuitry to provide video to the laptop screen and the external monitor are separate except that they share a video processor and video memory. There can be bad electronics involved.

One way to test it is to connect a monitor to the VGA port (make sure to activate the external monitor (Fn+monitor key)
If it does work on the external monitor, I would look at replacing the onboard LCD.
If it doesn't, you are looking at problems with the onbaord video.
