My t722i display has no back light

When I power up my phone the backlight does not come on, you can see what's on the screen, but the screen is dark. What can be the problem? I've tried the brightness, the contrast setting and nothing. Please help me resolve this problem

    It's November 4th. I bought my LG Chocolate VX8500 phone on October 22 and the backlight has not been working, so I cannot see the screen! When I turn it on, it works until the screen turns off from inactivity. When I slide it open or unlock it, the screen comes back on but the backlight doesn't, so it's dark. I can just barely make out what's on it only if I squint and look really closely and only if I have the right amount of light. I have gone through the display settings and have tried it with the backlight set on "Always on" and with it set to go off after a certain number of seconds, but nothing makes a difference. The phone is two weeks old and it has not been damaged as far as I know of. It starting acting up basically the day after I bought it. I didn't even use it the day I got it because it had half a charge out of the box and I was waiting for the battery to run down completely before I charged it so I left it at home, where nothing could've possibly happened to it, so I cannot think of anything that I might've done to it to cause this. I signed up for the replacement program in case I lost it or it was damaged and not covered by the warranty, so I can get a new one if I need it, but I don't want to do that if there's a way I can get it to work without having to pay to ship it to the company for fixing and without having to buy any replacement parts or anything. The phone is not in my name, so I myself would not be able to get the replacement, and I don't want to bother the account holder with this if it is not neccessary. I'm grasping at straws here, because I think the only thing I can do is get a new one, but, before I do, is there anything that I can do to fix it? Thanks.

    Actactlly the same thing I did. No backlight, everything works fine. I use to give my phone to my 1 year old daughter who just loves to play with it. She keep putting it in the mouth, and I think my problem started due to this.

Sanyo DP46142 TV comes on for approximately 30 seconds and then screen goes black. Power LED stays on.

Sounds like a backlight problem to me. If you input a signal to the HDMI or Composite input and then it goes black have you tried taking a flashlight to the screen to see if the picture is still there but just dark? That would indicate a backlight issue. That model appears to be an LED edge lit backlight, so if the picture is still there after going black your going to have to trace out the backlight circuit and see whats going on. Usually with LED backlighting if it comes on at all then the LED's are good, its just the driver supply thats failing to keep them on. Some TV's have a small separate board that provides the backlight control, but i suspect with this model its on the power supply board and not the motherboard. Have you checked that board? It could be bad caps on the power supply board, check the voltages to the backlighting when it lights up and then when it goes dark. It could just be some failed capacitors on the power supply causing that voltage rail to drop off.

TV turns on, but the screen is very dark, almost completely black.

It sounds like your backlight is out or barely functioning. Try replacing the inverter board(s). Since you can see a picture, the T-Con board is probably okay.

Dark Screen even when i adjust the 'brightness' tab?

check the power settings on te unit, if it is set to default for the backlight, possible that your LCD's backlight is not powering up properly on the unit or LCD's backlight needs replacement.

My dell inspiron 1520 has dark screen

If you replaced the backlight and you still have the same problem then the next step you should take is to replace the inverter.

That should solve your problem, if it doesn't let us know.

The screen is dark on my e71; the back light is off

It seems you have a backlight failure. If you can still see the screen on the device (as far as texts and pictures), you would simply need to replace the screen in the device.

Dark screen

if the picture is REALLY dark, like you can just barely see it in a lit room, then the backlight might not be lit. LCD TVshave backlight that shines through the LCD screen which allows you to see the picture.

If it's not the backlight then it would be the brightness/contrast settings that need to be adjusted. If the picture used to be normal and all of a sudden went dark, verify the backlight. Normally you can look through the slots on the top of the set and determine if the backlight is on. If you can see a bright light through any of the slots, the backlight is probably OK... go after the brightness/contrast settings.
