Compaq 610 when i start vdu is white screen and


hI,
if the screen is completely white the problem could be a bad LCD cable. To cross check if the problem with the LCD or the motherboard. Connect an external monitor to the laptop. Tap the Fn + F8 key together to get the display to toggle to the external monitor if the display comes on the external monitor without any problems the problem is with the LCD and you would have to take the laptop for repairs.

Thanks for using Fixya

Need to replace screen on presario r4000. do I remove bezel and 'POP' screen out ? is it that easy? thanks Ty


it's not safe to do that alone.
It's LCD, you must not touch it.

It's impossible to replace alone.
If your laptop still under warranty, send back to the warranty.
They will replace it for it.

If not, send to any computer shop, they will know how to repair it.
LCD is different with a normal monitor, you shouldn't touch anything on it. It's very sensitive.

How to replace my backlight, for a compaq 2500


Your laptop's LCD is illuminated by cold-cathode bulbs, often times a specific size for fitting purposes within your laptop's screen (as size constraints and cosmetic differences can leave little to no room withing the top lid for standard bulbs).

Replacing the back-light bulbs requires the original parts, or replacement as approved by the manufacturer. The first place I would start would be contacting HP (who now owns compaq) at 1-800-hpinvent and inquiring as to the cost for just a replacement screen for your model. Otherwise, you can order one from eBay or some other similar online resource.

The actual installation is quite simple, but it requires about 15-20 minutes of time, and three or four specific tools.

You have to disassemble the top lcd beveled casing, you have to detatch the lcd from the video flex cable that runs through the hinges of the unit and underneath the keyboard bevel. And re-attatch all said parts when you are complete. Keep track of the screws you remove in order to release the casing. And on the screen, often times those little rubber dots along the LCD screen actually need to be removed to locate several more screws.

That solution is if you purchase the entire LCD replacement contained together, which can be considerably more expensive than just replacing the back light. But finding the compatible parts to replace your LCD's defective ones might be close to impossible.

A quick search to help explain the process of replacing the cathode bulbs brought up this website via google:

http://www.inventgeek.com/Projects/shorts/overview.aspx

It has pictures that help illustrate the process for a standard screen. You would modify the instructions for your laptop's LCD screen.

If you do purchase a replacement LCD kit, you can always bring it to a Geeksquad technician and request an estime, or shop around to find a certified repair center that will install it for you.

Hope that helps.
