This is usually caused by a defective CCD image sensor and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.

I have a toshiba satellite a305-s6909 and just replaced the motherboard and when i went to power it on nothing comes up on the display the screen stays black?????


A couple of crazy ideas:

1. Press the Fn key with the (usually) blue icon that looks like two monitors. That's usually Fn/F5.. That could help if the keys were pressed before and the video was redirected to an external monitor.

2. The ribbon cable from the motherboard to the monitor came loose, or wasn't inserted during the replacement.

It is one of two possibilities, bad inverter board, or the back lights behind the display has failed. It is usually cheaper to replace the monitor than have it repaired.

From your description they replaced the inverter board to fix the problem. When you had it repaired was the right side dark when you got it back? because if it was they are responsible for making right. If the problem was fixed, it still could be the inverter board or a bad back light that is going, if it is the back light most technicians will not attempt this repair because you have get in behind screen which is not meant to be taken apart. "a very tricky repair that requires solder work" They will usually opt to replace the complete LCD display to correct the problem.

Check the power supply.Hope the notebook receives power from the battery or the Ac adapter.We need to ensure there is no issue with the power supply.boot the notebook to the safe mode.If it boots to the safemode perform a system restore.In case the notebook does not boot to the BIOS,connect to an external monitor.If we still do not get a display,its the video card

X9G NAGAIV goes black; can display, but wont.


Took it apart, all the way down to the boards and first examined the capacitors on the power board7d50dd4.jpg. It turns out it was a cracked metallized polyester film cap (C10), not a blown electrolytic capacitor. Ordered a new one and some transitors from DigiKey. Dont know if that is the complete fix, but the cracked cap certainly isnt supposed to be there.
