My screen is still dim after replacing the inverte

My screen went dim a while back , and on researching the internet i found out that it may be due to either the inverter or backlight. but since my laptop was onle a month old i though it couldnt be the backlight so i bought a brand new inverter and connected it. the weird thing is that when i connected the two ends to the two wire connections from the laptop it came back on perfectly. then i switched it off and screwed on the inverter to the screen and sealed the screen up. on putting it on again same problem as before, no light on screen, and to make matters worse the inverte seems to be 'dead' because if i connect it like before it doesnt even come on now. sorry about the spelling errors i've now connected it to my tv and the resolution is really low, so i cant see what im typing pls help me, guys.

If its still under warranty, get them to fix it, but you may have crushed a wire, or moved something.
does it have a function button and brightness arrows?
check for update on video driver too.

You may have inadvertently crushed or pinched a wire inside the monitor and this may have been your problem all along. Take the bezel around the screen off and see if your monitor comes back to normal. While it is off, look around the area for any signs of damaged wiring. If this was only a month old, why didnt you return it to have it repaired?

A dim laptop lcd screen is either the result of 1) a faulty inverter which is a separate piece from the lcd screen or 2) a burned out backlight which is part of the lcd screen. In the majority of instances, the inverter is the cause of the problem and not the backlight as most people tend to assume and therefore does not require the purchase of a lcd screen.
I have done some research and it seems you can fetch a new inverter for around $59.00

Acer netbook AO751h screen does not work, external monitor works fine.


Hello !

Since an external monitor works, it is 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.

Test with an external monitor. If it works, there is a problem with the display's backlight or inverter board.

My sony vaio vgn-n365e screen is Dim


The fault could be a faulty CCFL lamp or inverter.
To determine if you have a LCD screen, inverter or video card problem, read this and follow these instructions.
Defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom: Screen flashs on red/pink and off. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering with dim display or appear black. Picture flickering on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp.
Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

Screen dim to black


This will be a problem with either the screen inverter or screen backlight. You will need to take it to a shop for diagnosis, in order to find out which one it is. If it turns out to be the backlight, then the entire screen will have to be replaced. They are considered a sealed unit, and the backlight can't be changed out.
