There is a possibility it is your backlight because the laptop is probably older than 3 years, then you have to replace the ccfl lamp of the screen. It is a difficult repair but it can be done, if you look for guides online you will find something. I work for company that does Laptop repair in NYC and we do this repair frequently.

With these machines the inverter is always first on the list. Since you've ruled this out, it's going to be the screen or cable. I'm leaning towards the screen. Inspect the cable and connectors thoroughly for any flaws that may create a bad connection. Generally when this occurs and the inverter is ruled out it's the back light in the screen versus the cable. The screen is a sealed unit so the back light cannot be changed out. I suggest a new screen. I browsed Ebay and you can get a screen with the cable for under $40, I'd go that route.

The screen is too dark to read


See if there is a contrast adjustment somewhere on the laptop first, if not then its a possibility your back light has gone and needs replacing.

You could have a defective LCD screen, If the laptop appears to be running and the hard disk is spinning but the screen is dark then, to determine if you have a LCD screen or video card problem, read this and follow these instructions.
Defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom: Screen flashs on red/pink and off. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering with dim display or appear black. Picture flickering on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp.
Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

Sometimes there are keys are your laptop that adjust your settings.
If you know which keys you can hit the fn key simultaneously.
If your not sure go on line and you should be able to find a site that will tell you how to adjust your screen.
In search type your laptop model then type display settings

IBM T30 screen has gone dark .


Above the upper right corner, there is a littlesquare nutch that turns the screen dark when the lid is closed. In most cases it's stucked. poke it with a pen and see if the light turns on.

Laptop screen gone dark


I had a similar problem on my Fujitsu-Siemens Lifebook C-1020 and I had to replace both the C/C inverter that the CCFL lamp. Easy to find/replace the inverter (only take care of input/output plugs), tricky to find/replace the CCFL lamp (because of diameter, lenght and toxic Hg content).

Have fun!

Dark screen


Your backlight is probably burned out. It is repairable, but I recommend having a computer repair shop take care of it.

Hi my IBM 2635-6AU, ThinkPad 380ED 26356AU screen is dark and i cant see


From what you are stating it seems like your backlight in your lcd needs to be replaced. Plug an external monitor up to your laptop. Press the fn & f key (the one with the picture of a monitor in it.) Your diplay should project to the monitor. Display is ok.....replace the backlight.

Hope this helps you
