Its possible your screen's backlight is out, normally a easy way to tell this is by holding it up to the light and looking at it from an angle while moving around the mouse.

Another thing to try is to tilt the notebook's lid back and forth slowly and see if you see any blinking, if its blinks, then your video cable has been damaged and you will need to replace it or hire someone to replace it.
if you can't see anything on the screen when you test for the backlight, and you don't see any blinking then its possible your cable was just unplugged. and you will need to open up the notebook and plug it back in or hire someone to do so.

Hope This Helps.

Most likely a problem with the motherboard(main component of computer). If it is a problem with the motherboard, it will need to be replaced.

Try the following before getting the motherboard replaced or getting a new notebook(better idea).

1) Unplug the ac adapter wire and take out the battery.
2) Remove the Memory(RAM) sticks.
3) Hold the Power button for 30 Seconds.
4) Put back the memory and plug in the AC adapter wire only.

Model S400CA-CA006H, Power ON, only back lit blank display. Battery icon is green while the BULB icon LED is orange in colour.


  • rjsymmes has the most accurate solution. Start with a battery replacement. Next course of action is to use a Bootable Media Source (Windows Disk or Recovery Disk) to see if the laptop responds and can have the Start Up repaired. If a Boot Media fails, then examine RAM, Hard Drive removal, then boot. Last resort Motherboard.

How to trouble shoot no display problem in PC


Mostly the prolem comes with PCs is no display. When such situation comes we can try following DIY and 90% the faulty part could be diagnosed:
1.Unplug the VGA cable of the monutor and if monitor shows some message (check signal cable) monitor is ok
2.First check for the power whether LEDs are blinking?If yes power unit is fine.
3.Check for the responses of the kwyboard LEDs, if after switching on LEDs are blinking processor is ok otherwise there is some issue with Processor.(Note it might not blink if the mainboard is burned)
4.Try to press num lock key if the LED is responding most probably this is the issue with RAM otherwise with Mainboard.

Thanks

In my experience, there will be damage to the main pcboard, usually under the transformer.
If you are lucky you can find all of the broken track and remake the track.
Good luck.

ULine 2175RF Digital Touch Controller not responding.


Hi
You will need to remove the grill. Unplug the unit, Then on the control board you will see 4 wire with a black connector. Unplug that and plug it in 4 or 5 times. Make sure you dont bend the pins. Then plug the connector back in and plug unit back in. You should have better response on the display. They have a special coating and the pins needs to be cleaned this way.

Inspiron E 1405 laptop won't turn off and displays black screen


If it turns black again, try to check first if it's just the LED's that are defective. If you push the monitor 40 degrees down, and you can see very faint display from that angle, then it's probably that the LED's are the culprit, and you can have it replaced for a less price.
