LCD Screen has has no light to it anymore

The main LCD screen on the back of my Toshiba M700 camera has become almost unreadable. You can barely tell it is still working if you are in the light but in the dark you can't see anything on the screen. I would like to know what is wrong and how to fix it. Everything else seems to be working properly. The camera is about 3 years old. H E L P !!! if you can. Thanks, Ernie/

The backlight to the LCD in your camera went out. You're going to have to get it replaced. Find a local repair shop that handles these cameras and get an estimate. There's probably nothing wrong in the camera, it just needs a little lamp swapped. Good luck

Tv is dim and can't brighten

Back - light problem. Check and replace damaged component/s at its back-light inverter board, or replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the inverter board as card basis.

To some model sets; especially LED back-lighted types; the back-light inverter circuit will be part of the main power supply board [SMPS]. In such cases, the power supply board might need replacement. To some models sets, the back-light inverter and SMPS section circuit will be integrated at its main board itself. If so; the main board should be replaced. To some models of sets, all these section circuit will be integrated at its main board. If this is the case, you have to replace the main board.

When my m45-s331 laptop is turn on for a long time, if i put the monitor off, maybe in not be turn on again and it's brightness become very low and hardly it can be seen! what should i do?

It's possible that the LCD lid close switch stuck in the "closed" position and the back-light stays off even when you open the LCD screen or turn on the laptop. The switch turns off the back-light when you close the LCD display to save the laptop battery power.

If that didn't fix it then there are 3 things that could have gone wrong:

1. Video cable connection from inverter to LCD got loose. To check this, follow instructions from step 3 on how to open the LCD and check if cable is fitted properly.

2. The video inverter is faulty
The screen inverter failure is very similar to the back-light lamp failure. In both cases the screen gets very dark and the image on the screen becomes very faint, barely visible under a bright light. If it's still under warranty, take it for a replacement. You can replace this otherwise - you can find the inverter under the screen, follow the procedure described at point 3 to open up the screen.

3. The LCD monitor is faulty
If it works on an external monitor most likely the LCD is faulty and needs replacement. If it's still under warranty, take it for a replacement. If not, you can do it yourself, it's pretty easy. Remove the rubber covers on the side of the screen, unscrew the screws take the plastic cover off, disconnect the video inverter and put in the new LCD after you connect the video inverter to it.
