Question about HP iPAQ HX4700 Pocket PC

1 Answer

Backlight Issue Does this sound like a hardware problem? My HX4700's backlight will not dim. The brightness is fixed at maximum. Moving the screen slider to the left (minimum) causes the screen to go dark. Any other position sets the brightness to max. I thought that flashing the latest bios might help but no. Any ideas?

Whenever my Dell Precision M6300 is ever on maximum brightness, the backlight goes dark after 1-2 seconds. The screen is fully functional, but the backlight simply isn't working. I can get the backlight to...


guess there is an larger issue with your notebook.....
you need to get the backlite changed, if you have chanaged the lite then there is a compatibility issue with the screen and the invertor board that's behind the LCD screen.
or the system is not supplying the correct current to the backlite / invertor board

a HW tech guy may solve your issue

When i switch on my laptop I see the led lights on but the screen is blank. I do not even see the hp icon that shows up initially


Hello !

It is typically the display's backlight or inverter board.

If you were experiencing discoloration in the screen (pinkish lower light hues) before it failed, that would indicate a CCFL backlight issue. If the screen suddenly went dim on you rather than a slow degradation the inverter would be indicated.

Hope this helps.

Screen is very dim..can barely see it..bright adjust doesnt help.


Hi, your LCD screen's backlight has gone out. This is a hardware failure, and you'll need to have it replaced or repaired. THe LCD screen consists of two parts, the LCD screen which creates images for you to see, and the backlight which forces light through the LCD so you can see it. Your backlight has gone out, so your screen still has images, but no light.

MacBook screen dims


first there could be many meanings of dims with a laptop screen one is backlight has turned off and it is difficult to see.  if that is the case use you brightness key to check if it is up, if it is more likely your inverter has gone up and in worse cases the screen. it may also start bright then change dim while loading
there is also the feature on mac to automatically dim the screen a little when unused for a set time.  to change this go to system preferences, go to energy saver, click show details, then move to options, and uncheck the the box that says "Automatically reduce the brightness of the display before display sleep".
i hope this is what you are talking about.

Light is dimmed. Cannot make it brighter.


This happened to me, too, when I replaced the battery. Turns out one of the wires that affects the brightness came loose. I found the loose wire, touched it to a few places where I thought it should go, and one of them caused the screen to come on to full bright.

I was extremely nervous dealing with this - never soldered in such tight quarters before, but once I soldered it down, the problem was solved. I have other problems with my ique - like extremely limited battery life - but the brightness problem is solved.
