    My Toshiba Satellite WINXP started having problems when I noticed the red tint to the screen after monitor would resume from a stand-by state. Now, the screen goes very dim (almost can make out the content) after being on a few seconds. I can still hear sound and make out some movement, that's all. The power strip is working, the cords are plugged in, nbattery is full.There have been no major changes, and no power or configuration changes.

Toshiba tecra a2 screen backlight problem the is screen not lighting up at all but in bright daylight fully functioning screen can be seen could this be the lcd inverter and how difficult is it to replace


screen not lighting up is either the screen inverter or a broken tube inside the screen. Tubes don't break by themselves so a dim screen usually comes after a transport or a drop. I would replace the inverter first (just cause it's easy and cheap). eBay's a good source for inverters and screens and you ought not pay more than $5 for a used inverter and anything more than $30 for a used screeen would be considered tourist price. Tecra A2's are rare, but it's the same as the more popular Satellite A55's. Its screen should be a 15" XGA and would be the same screen as many other Toshiba Satellite models (A10, A15, A40, A45, A55) and Satellite Pro models (M10, M15), to name a few.

In my opinion, dim screens are 98% broken tubes and 2% inverters.

Screen dim after a few minutes of running.


If its on battery then it may be set in control panel/power settings to dim when the batery is low.
Try to adjust the settings to max.
When it dims if you move the lid or very gently flex the lid does it change?
may be a loose connection loosing contact when it heats up

I have a Toshiba Satellite A55-S1063 the scrren is dim but I can still see using a flashlight. I have had the back light replaced once it worked great for about 2 weeks and then went back to being very...


Hello !

Since the screen is dim, the display's inverter board needs to be replaced.

If you were experiencing discoloration in the screen (pinkish lower light hues) before it failed, that would indicate a CCFL backlight issue. If the screen suddenly went dim on you rather than a slow degradation, the inverter would be indicated.

Hope this helps.

Monitor is dim


Sounds like your inverter is failing. The inverter takes the dc power from the battery and charger and converts to high voltage AC current for the backlight lamp inside the screen. When the inverter starts to fail, the display will sometimes blink, dim out over time, flash just get dark and stay that way.

Satellite L45-S7409, Screen is very dim.


Try reseating the lcd cable on the back of the LCD and also where it plugs into the motherboard. If you still can't get a normal screen and it stays dim then its going to be either your lcd is bad or the inverter that supplies the voltage to the lcd (inverter is located underneath the lcd, small rectangular board) is bad.

Dim display on Toshiba Satellite 4090XDVD notebook


The backlight CCFL lamp provides the lighting for the LCD screen. If you have already adjusted the brightness to the max. setting and it is still dim, it means the CCFL lamp is is nearly worn out. To determine if you have a LCD screen or video card problem, read this and follow the 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. Check out www.lcdparts.net for parts, repair service and DIY info.

Ok i think i can help,

Step 1: Go to preferences
Step 2: Go to power
Step 3: Change the Auto-off after: feature and increase it to 3 minutes, the maximum.

I know this will only help it a lil from the 1 minute you had before, but if you pres the volume button or something within the 3 minutes it will restart the 3 minutes.
