Laptop monitor Suddenly the screen went dark on my Toshiba Laptop. I connected my laptop to a regular monitor and it works fine but I can not see anything on the laptop screen. I have had this laptop about 7 years. Can it be repaired inexpensively? It works great otherwise.

This will be a problem with either the screen or screen inverter. Screen or inverter replacement is fairly easy, and you should be able to do this yourself. As far as pricing the screen or inverter, try Ebay. With this being an older model, you should be able to get a good deal on a screen and/or inverter on Ebay, and definitely a better deal than at a shop. If you will get back to me on the model, I can probably get you instructions and diagrams for the screen removal/replacement.

Why is there no display?


hi

can you plug in another monitor to the video plug on the side of your laptop?

if the monitor works but your laptop screen stays dark your laptop screen needs to be replaced .

If the monitor is also dark then the LCD screen is ok but the inverter needs to be replaced

Connect a known working monitor to the the video output terminal of laptop. If that works then your screen is bogus. If it does not work then the laptop video circuits have an issue.

I have a toshiba c655d but I the screen is too dark, when I connect an external monitor it works just fine. Any ideas?


Hi boris jurado...

Sounds like your LCD is faulty, if it works with another external monitor, then that is normally the problem.
You will need to change your LCD to correct this problem.

Screen went black


I don't know. I've never actually replaced parts in a monitor. If the bulb is expensive, it might be best to buy a new monitor. They're cheap nowadays. Or you can check if there's warranty on the monitor and it can probably be fixed for free.

Just turn the monitor off and on,,it should cure the problem,,also,,,tap the space bar on your laptop,,,,also,,you may want to change your settings on your laptop to prevent it going into sleep mode, or standby state,,which is what is causing this problem with your monitor.

My toshiba laptop screen changed color


connect an external monitor (crt or flat panel monitor) at the back of your laptop and see if the display is fine. if the display is fine on the monitor then it means to say that the lcd backlight is not working properly.
