Dear There, I have Lenovo ThinkPad T500 - Intel Centrino 2 Core 2 Duo 2.5GHz Notebook Laptops. It does not show clear display, but shows very dark and you can see only pages that's colors are white....


Two things. You might have a problem with the inverter or with the backlight lamp.
You need to open your Laptop Screen. Normally the screws are hiding underneath the rubber stops. It would be better if you can find a LCD disassembly manual for your laptop else just write down what and account everything that you do. Check for the Fluorescent like lamp if its burnt out. If it is then you need to replace that. If not, then you need to replace the Inverter(a long rectangular shaped circuit board. Normally it is just at the bottom of the LCD screen.) Note the product code written on the inverter and order it. This should fix that problem.

The screen on the laptop Inspiron 9200 is very dark, but I can see the computer is on and all my icons very lightly in the background. How can I make the screen brighter?


This is a common problems on lcd screens. Your screen inverter is causing this problem this is the small board underneath the LCD panel in the lid of the laptop. I will give you a link on how to replace your inverter.

My screen went dark suddenly, when I try to restart my computer the screen is tinted red before going dark again. The screen is not completely black as there is letter visible underneath.


From what you are describing, it sounds like the inverter board is failing. This board sits under the LCD screen and is responsible for taking the DC voltage from the battery and AC adapter and converting that voltage to high voltage AC power for the backlight lamp that sits inside the lcd screen. Without that high voltage the screen goes dark. Most inverters do not fail right away, there are voltage fall offs etc. Inverters are approx. 15-20 bucks on ebay, for most laptops, they can be changed out simply by removing the bezel around the screen, unplugging the two connectors on the inverter and changing it out. In most cases except Dell, the inverter is just sitting in there and is not held in by screws.

If the LCD is dark but you see shadows and an external monitor functions normally, then the LCD backlight has failed and the LCD needs to be replaced

Laptop screen illumination


The fault could be a faulty CCFL lamp or inverter.
To determine if you have a LCD screen, inverter or video card problem, read this and follow these instructions.
Defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom: Screen flashs on red/pink and off. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering with dim display or appear black. Picture flickering on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp.
Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

HP Pavilion, Screen working, but extremely dark!


Hi,
As per your description, I find that the issue is with the LCD Backlight which is also called as LCD Inverter which lights up the LCD to show us the Display on the LCD Display.
If this Backlight is gone bad, you will be barely able to see the Display on the LCD.
Coming to the Noise you had mentioned above can be from the Cooling fans of the Notebook which will be spinning at high speed when the Notebook starts and will reduce gradually after few minutes.
I recommend you to try cleaning the Cooling fan vents using any Vacuum Cleaner or Air Blower.
I recommend you to contact any nearest HP Authorized Service Center and get the LCD Backlight replaced.
Hope this helps....

My screen went dark !


hello sir
To state the obvious, make sure the brightness is turned up. This is usually a function key on the keyboard. If this doesn't accomplish anything, then the backlight on the lcd may be damaged, and the lcd will have to be replaced.
thank you
