Hello there Bill,

If you think you have already adjusted the screen brightness and contrast from your Laptop's keyboard, then your LCD screen's backlights need to be changed. This is a cheap fix so if you are not technically equipped to take the scree apart, just have it changed by an authorized computer technician.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Bottom screen/touch screen is black

The led light has burned out on the screen and needs to be replaced. Unless you can still see light around the edges and then the screen itself needs to be replaced.

The screen on my g600 has gone really dark and isn't lighting up properly. It's as if the lights that are used to light it up are broken or something.

this is a hardware problem
send your mobile to a repair store
if the screen is not lighting up and the buttons are lighting ,that means you need to change the screen in a new one.
but if the all mobile lights are not lightining ,that means the i c and the capacitors of the lightening ic on the main hardware board needs to be repaired

I have a Acer 1355LC. When i turned it on, the screen failed to light up. All connections seemed ok.What do i need to do? bruce


Does the system power on, just the screen that fails to lighten? if yes, the problem should be from the screen back light. The back light must have gotten burnt and needs to be replaced for your screen to brighten up again.

Take care.

MY Laptop Screen Is Dim It Will Not Show Bright

When you say that your laptop "screen is dim", do you mean that there is no light coming from your screen, but you can see images on it? or do you mean that there is light coming from the screen, just a very little amount?

If you can images, but NO light is coming from the screen, then the LCD backlight is dead, and it needs to be replaced.

If there is light coming from the screen, but it's very dim, then you'll need to find the screen brightness adjustment keys on your laptop. This is usually two keys. The first one is normally in the lower left corner of your laptop and should be a different color - like blue or purple, and will be labeled something like "Fn". The second key is normally in the function key row (F1, F2, F3, etc...) and has a symbol on it that looks like a sun or burst of light with an arrow. There's usually one for "brightness UP" and one for "brightness DOWN". Hold down the Fn key, and then press the "Brightness UP" key a few times to see if the screen brightens up. Good luck.

I have a problem with my psp I can't see nothing in the screen but i can hear the sound of the psp

i have had a similar problem,
this could be one of two things
1 your screen back light is damaged
2 your LCD screen has been very badly cracked

dose your screen light up at all?
if it dose light up then you would need to replace the screen
if it doesn't light up you may just need a back light.

Where you plug in the power cord the light stays on and the screen don't even turn on i need help findin the problem.

Hi There....

- Check for the brightness/ contrast of the screen
- just change the position of the screen, may be you can push it little front/ back or you move your chair a little left/ right
- check the lighting in your room and make sure direct light fall on the screen, coz you may just find the same reflection and cannot see the original screen...

- if nothing works, may be the prb with LCD screen itself and may need a repair/ replacement of the same...

ALL the Best...

Spots on screen

Spots on screen do not automatically mean you need to replace the light engine. It depends on the brand. Panasonics can reset the eeprom. Samsung can replace the DLP chip. Hitachi needs a light engine replaced.
