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

A125 monitor is dark


If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp.

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.

Note: Always click on the 'Apply', and 'OK' buttons after application changes for the process to take effect. 9.

Your laptop's monitor went bad and needs to be replaced. I had the same problem on an IBM laptop I had. Replacing the monitor costs between $120-220.

Monitor is blank!!!!


Firstly, the LCD+external setting will switch one or the other or both on.

Secondly, if you go into your display properties (or even the advanced page where your video card additional features are) you can usually select which monitor is "primary".

I suspect that your external display is primary, and the LCD screen is not "enabled" or used as part of the desktop.

The settings are all there, it's just a matter of finding them (depending on what video card is in whatever laptop you have)

This might have happened in the first place if you accidentally hit "Fn" and one of the "F" keys up the top. Fn + F6 on my laptop will switch LCD/external monitors on and off. (for example) There is usually a little blue picture on one of the "F" keys to denote that function.

Display is very dark


Dim screen is usually caused by a bad inverter board especially if you get video to external monitor. Usually cost $100-$200 depending on laptop.

Hope this helps!

Monitor Went "BLIND"!


Hi,
Actually, there's 3 major manufacturers of laptops and parts.
Can you connect to an external monitor and boot the unit up. You may have to toggle (F3 or F5 i think) between on board and external a few times. If you get an image on the external, it's probly the lcd inverter (#1), or the backlight (#2), or the cable is not completely connected to the lcd (#3)
Let me know how the external monitor test works and we'll narrow it down from there.
Good luck
