Question about HP G60-120US Laptop

2 Answers

The backlight on my HP G60-237NR went out. I can still see the screen if I hold a flashlight to it, but aside from that no light what so ever. I was wondering if it's the inverter that I have to replace or a lid actuator switch that I cannot locate and if you could tell me descriptively where the location of the switch maybe. Thank You

The inverter board is located under the main screen, there are rubber buttons which hide the screws on the front "about 6" the lid actuator switch just above the keyboard probably to the left "like a small shaft" The inverter board is most likely the problem, the only other possibility is the back light inside the screen housing.

My HP Monitor not displaying home computer


It could be your port to your computer that went bad. If you have a graphics card for you computer that could have gone bad. It also could be the monitor port. If the port went bad on either side it will usually say something on the screen about it not having a connection to the port.

It also could be the backlight for the monitor . Sometimes you can tell if the backlight went bad if you turn on the computer and shine a flashlight at the screen. If you see an image then the backlight is bad.

Hi:
You may not have ot rep;ace the entire screen or the backlight on one side of the screen if you open it up there is a inverter board make sure the connection wires from the main board to the inverter are not pinched from opening and closing the lid.

When i switch on my laptop I see the led lights on but the screen is blank. I do not even see the hp icon that shows up initially


Hello !

It is typically the display's backlight or inverter board.

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.

Sound but no vision, black screen


It's either the backlight lamp or backlight inverter is busted due to a power failure or fluctuation. Here's how to determine which is which:
  1. Grab a flashlight.
  2. Turn on the TV.
  3. Shine the flashlight onto the screen.
  4. If you cannot see any display even a faint one, the backlight inverter is dead, else the backlight lamps are busted.
  5. Replace which ever is the culprit.

Cant get monitor to light up


your problem is a faulty ccfl BackLight Inverter, the display uses the backlight to illuminate the lcd screen, the inverter is used to illuminate the cold cathode light in the back of ther lcd theirs countless places to laern about it on google.
They are cheap to replace google your model with inverter at the end..
However you 1st need to make sure the new screen didnt come with an inverter. It should have if it did then you may have a motherboard issue.

Interior stereo light


Take a Flashlight and hold it Behind the Fuses to make them Easier to See. This way you can check them all and Replace the Bad Ones. If it is not a Fuse, The Backlighting on the Stereo is Probably out and there is no way to fix this once they stop Working aside of Buying a New Head Unit or Aftermarket Stereo.

Dark screen


try this, on the laptop keyboard on the bottom left cornet, there should be a button that says 'Fn' written in 'blue'

also on the keyboard, there are secondary buttons, if you look on some off the buttons on the keyboard, there are some pics, numbers letter etc written in blue on the buttons, look for one that has a arrow up and beside that on the same button a picture of a sun, when found do this:

Hold Fn and click on that key with the arrow pointing up with picture of sun and tap that button repeatedly to increase back light while holding the Fn button down firmly
