Diagnosis:
1. Test using an external monitor. If it works, then either the screen bulb or the inverter board might be defective.
2. Test the inverter. Easiest way to do it if you have a good screen with a good bulb. Connect the good screen to the inverter board & test it. If it lights up, then the inverter board is good. If it did not, then the inverter board is bad & needs to be replaced.
3. If the inverter board is good, then we are left with the possibility that the screen bulb is bad. To fix this, we will need to replace the LCD screen.

    OK it works fine with an exterior monitor and I installed a brand new screen
    same problem. where do i find the inverter board?

  • Mohamed Omran Oct 07, 2010

    Usually you could find the inverter board either under the LCD screen front cover, just below the screen, or under the front hinge cover (the panel which has the power button). It is a slim printed circuit board with a cable attaching it to the LCD screen (the LCD screen cable).

    Please refer to the following link to get an idea of how the inverter board looks like:http://www.laptopparts101.com/screen-inv...

I can barely see the screen, its very dark. Its a toshiba satellite m115 s1061


Try attaching an external monitor to the laptop & see if you could get any display on it. If this is successful, then you might have either a faulty LCD cable or screen inverter board.
The LCD cable transfers data signal from the motherboard & video card to the LCD screen. It also supplies high voltage DC power to the screen inverter board. The screen inverter board works as a power supply for the backlight lamp mounted inside the LCD screen. It converts low voltage DC power to high voltage AC power needed for the backlight lamp.

Using Fn + F8 should go through 3 different positions: Laptop screen, Both screens, Ext Screen --- and back to Laptop screen, etc. This is set up in the computer's internal operating parameters and can not be changed.

Screen goes dark


Either the backlight lamp or the invertor for it is failing. I suspect the colors and contrast isn't as it once was either.
