Not really, it could be the LCD ribbon, LCD inverter. Also does the system power up? Like does the fan spin? And is there a Hard Drive in it or not, Sometimes the Hard Drive pin connector will do that. " Not The Hard Drive, Part that Hard Drive Pins plug into" If you want me to see about fixing it for you, you can send it to me and I'll see about fixing it. I mostly get trouble with Screens from the Gateway Brand they mostly have the LCD Issues. But I do mainly repair for IBM ThinkPads but also do other brands aswell.
IBM, DELL, Compaq, HP, Gateway, Toshiba, Sony, Acer, emachines and fujitsu. All you will have to pay is shipping.
Thanks...

Screen wont turn on , i have a inspiron 6400 .. I rang dell & my extra 3yr warranty ran out just 6 weeks ago & * They WONT HELP*


when you say screen will not turn on it means we do not have display right? now, try this. turn off laptop, press and hold D key then press power button, check if the LCD will display colors if yes then it might be your video card causes the problem which needs motherboard replacement. if no colors appear then LCD needs replacement.

Display problem with colors


Check the display on the external monitor. if the display if fine, you lcd needs to be replaced. if the display is the same, your computer mother board has gone bad.
here is what you can also try before calling Dell.

Turn off your computer.
now, press and hold the Fn button at the bottom left hand corner. and then turn on the computer. kepp holding the Fn key down untill you see Pre boot self assesment. it will check all the hardware problems in the computer. After 2 minutes it will show you a rainbow. if the colors are fine press Y else press N. it will give you an error code. call dell and give the error code and get the LCD repalced.

My dell inspiron 1501 laptop has been flickeri ng colors or a lrge strip down middle , now half the screen is black with little color line


hello
This could be anything from the screen is dying or the inverter (electronic board that powers the screen' back light).

If you press slightly at the top of the screen, see if the lines will disappear or not, if it does then come back again; you might need to change your lcd.
hope it helped

Cannot get by dell screen to come back on once it hibernates


sounds like a power scheme setting is shutting off your monitor after a time-out period. sometimes monitor will not return without re-boot. change your power options settings in control panel.

Laptop doesnt boot only power ligth comes out when press on buttom a ligth comes out but nothing on the screen i dont hear the fan keep going.


Maybe there are some problem in your start button (the button wire connect to mainboard is Loosening.

Please press the start button for about 3-4 seconds then see it would start. Always it may solve the problem, this happend to my inspiron 6400 too, after used for years the start button failure. It shows only power lamp lights green but the other light cant light red.

If no, maybe your must change a power supply, as the lower volt current cant start all the device.
