My hp laptop turns on bt the screen will not come on how can i fix it


As per your description, there are two possible causes. Either the LCD is out of order and needs to be replaced, or that the inverter is defective.

The inverter is a electrical device which 'lits' the LCD. Without the inverter and the bulbs it powers, the screen would be too faint to be seen.

To test if the inverter is defective, just turn on your laptop in a dark space, then put a flashlight on the screen to see if you have a fainted display. If you can see something, it is the inverter which is defective and should be replaced.

If you are handy, you can also remove the screen cover to see if there is a neon like light which lits up behind the LCD. If you can see the light, it means that the inverter is just working fine and that the is with the LCD itself.

Picture of an inverter.

Replacing the inverter:

1. After removing the screen 'cover', locate a small circuit board (usually below the LCD). Unplug the electrical cables and replace.

In case the inverter is working correctly, try to check the LCD cables. If all cables are well connected, your LCD has to be replaced.

Hope this posts helps you.

Hi my son has broken the screen on his laptop it is only 5 months old so want to be able to keep 5 year warranty on it..... what is the best way to go from here ..... and who are authorited to fix it...

The Hardware Warranty on any computer would cover only defects and failures in the Hardware due to workmanship or manufacture. The Hardware Warranty will not cover anything that gets broken due to user interaction on the computer.
Hence, the Hardware Warranty will not cover any part that a user of a computer breaks (either intentionally or unintentionally).
I understand that your laptop is a Toshiba.
Just to let you know, Dell offers a Complete Care warranty over and above the normal Hardware Warranty, in orde to cover unintentional damage to a computer.
But, in your case, to be honest, I do not think the breakage to the laptop or any part of the laptop would be covered under the normal Hardware Warranty.
But please get in touch with Toshiba support (800) 457-7777 (toll-free) or (949) 859-4273 (I am presuming that you are in the US) and get things clarified :-

I recently got the lcd panel of my laptop fixed but now it's broken again. will dell fix it for me for free since it is within 30 days of when i sent it in for repair??

The answer is: Maybe
  1. Is the system still under warranty?
  2. The previous LCD replacement, was it a manufacturers defect, or broken accidentally?
  3. Is this failure a manufacturer's defect or accidental damage?
If the system is under warranty, any defect failure is covered. If the system has complete care accident damage coverage, accidental damage is covered.
If the system is OUT of Warranty, and it is a manufacturer's defect, it should be covered as repair parts are covered for 90 days or the length of the warranty, whichever is longer.
If accidental damage and out of warranty, you pay for repairs

if yes then try battery again being sure the contacts are clear and the packing/ship[ping cover is off the battery contact area.. also make sure the shipping cover has not become jammed in the laptops contacts inside the battery compartment...

if NO then u may have a defective power supply inside your laptop - see a repair center.

Cracked HP laptop LCD

under warranty if it is a defect from manufacture or if you bought extended warranty from retailer, some policy's cover damage. Only covered if policy is still within time of purchase.

If it is not covered it will be cheaper to replace computer than repair.

You can search here for warranty from manufacture.

Hope your covered. Please rate if this fixed you. Good luck!

Limited Warranty on HP Laptop??

Cracked screens are never covered by a limited warranty. A limited warranty from a manuf. covers defects in product or workmanship at the factory. Screens can run 600-1200 bucks.

Laptop hinge

This is a tough one. Usually this type of damage is considered customer damage and would not be covered under any type of warranty. That being said, if the reason for the break is a defect in the hinge itself, then that would be covered. I would suggest that you call Gateway first before you incur the expense of sending the laptop out.
