Ibm t40 laptop screen

When I turn on my laptop the screen comes on properly the gets soo dim you can barley make out that there is still something on it. if you close and open the laptop several times the screen flashes everytime its opend and eventualy it decides to work. I tried hooking up an external monitor while the screen wasnt working and it worked properly. do I need a new screen?

Hit a key on T40, near Mouse and now screen is completely black


Sounds like you hit the Fn and another combination and dimmed the brightness down to black or turned off the light with another Fn combo. Reversing by pressing Fn and one of the keys that looks like a light should do the trick to get it back.

IBM T40 Laptop screen goes black, will not come back


First of all, you have to check whether you can see video signal with surrounding light tilting the screen.
If you can see dim image, all you have to do is replace back-light inverter or fix it. Usually, the fuse is open and you can connect it by simple soldering.
If you can't see dim image, it is another problems.
Give it a try.

My screen on my T40 shows lots of gibberish colored squares


If you have access to an external monitor, connect it to the laptop. If everything works properly, then the screen or inverter has gone out. If you get the same garbled screen, then the video card has gone out.
