That last link is NOT for an Inverter Board, but rather for the RJ11 & RJ45 Modem jack. It appears, going through the Service Manual, that you need to purchase the whole Display Assembly. I'm a certified Compaq, HP, IBM, Toshiba and Dell PC Specialist. Should you have any other questions, need parts,, or some help of break-down/re-assembly, don't hesitate to ask. I have #'s for most all PC and Notebook Parts Vendors, so can help you out with parts, too. Just email me at: [email protected] I'd be more than happy to assist you! =)

    Sorry - my bad...he DID list the inverter board. But it didn't have a picture, and ALL COMPAQ PARTS begin with "CPQ-" so would look something like, "CPQ-XXXXXX-oo1"

    Thanks and sorry for being wrong about it. Just be sure you see what you're buying, before laying any money out. Again, you are more than welcome to email me (as listed above) any time and I can help you order parts and repair your notebook...

This is probably a defective inverter board or backlight. It can be repaired by a user with the right skills, patience, some tools, lots of time and the ability to risk damaging the laptop beyond economic repair. If we open it up and don?t see anything obvious then the troubleshooting process will require obtaining new, working parts to switch out. Overall you will have to make an investment in parts which many or may not pay off the end. I typically recommend that users who do not have experience working on delicate electronics seriously consider taking their laptop to their local authorized repair shop. They have the experience, tools and parts which generally translate into getting a working laptop back at minimal expense. If you decide you want to continue troubleshooting (and opening up) the laptop let us know and we can give you some general instructions how to open it up and where to get parts. Good luck and please don?t? forget to rate this posting.

    The service manual can be downloaded here:

    Specifically you want to open the Removal and Replacement Procedure section and go to 5.15, Display Assembly.

Can not get my Sony brva tv screan to go smaller

find you remote look for input button push find screen selection
16:9 and other numbers select the best view for you.

the remote maybe have menu push menu go to screen the icon will have a monitor as the tv symbol than high light screen size

Green flashing light

the green flashing light does not make sense if set is working.

As far as a dark picture if lamp not replaced or replaced with a generic it may be nearing the end of its life, many will dim just before failing.

The screan is too dark while I am watching tv

If a conventional picture tube type set it will have a high voltage transformer inside with a focus and "screen" control--in this case the screen needs to be adjusted up slightly.

Adjustment is inside the set so you have to have back off and be careful as high voltage is present when set is on (need it on to adjust the screen control just up a tiny bit).


Half screan show dark rest screan o k

The LCD screen is defective, the only option is replacement. Go to Type make and model of your laptop, refine search to screen and go through the list.

Imagines are dark even in bright light

the flash settings should have been kept in auto mode.if you want the flash always.normally, there is a button near the lcd screen, with the symbol of a lightning flash. when you press it once it sets the flash mode to auto, second time it sets it to "flash always on mode", third time "flash always off" can refer this process in instruction manual also.thanks for using fixya! please dont forget to rate my solution.

MD96015 Monitor problem

Sounds like you may have a bad LCD backlight or inverter. When the screen is dark, take it into a dark area and see if you can see the screen dimly showing. Or, shine a flash light on the screen and see if you can make out anything showing up.
Try this and let me know what you find.

Dark screen but just replaced it

I have a compaq laptop Hp 5000 the screen was black and I took the batterie out for a few minutes pluged the unit in and shut it back down and put the batterie back in and now works


Solution for this problem is to re-set the settings for color, contrast end brightness.
The have had a spontanious reset to 0.
Just go to custumsettings for picture: menu, picture,custom, customsettings and tune up the settings .

voila picture is there again...
