Toshiba satellite p75-A7200 how to turn on keyboard backlight

Backlights turn on automatically when you power on the computer. If you have no image on the screen, either the lcd inverter or screen is bad.

My laptop screen will not turn on. The laptop turns on & I hear it working, the screen will just not turn on.

Hi

This sounds very much a backlight or invertor issue and will need to be replaced. If it is the backlight then a screen replacement at about £140 is a rough guide. IF its the invertor then they tend to range from £10 to £40 and really both jobs should be done by a reputable computer retailer.

Thanks

Acer 5810t laptop. screen gone black

Press and hold the Power button for 45 seconds to turn the laptop off.

Then, remove the battery from the battery compartment and clean the metal contacts.
Next, reinsert the Battery and try to turn it ON.

If the display still doesn't come then you may try connecting an external display to check if the Computer is able to produce display and the issue is with the backlight of the LCD screen.


wish u good luck!!!!!!!!!!!

I turn on my computer but the screen is still black

think you might have a failed screen inverter (FL inverter); this problem is very common with laptops. The inverter board acts as a power supply for the LCD screen backlight bulb, it converts low voltage DC power into high voltage AC. On most laptops the inverter board is located inside the display assembly below the LCD screen and you can get access to it if you remove the screen bezel (LCD mask). When the screen inverter goes bad the backlight will not turn on anymore or it turns on for a short time and then goes off, but you still can see a faint image on the screen and the external monitor works just fine. First of all I would make sure it’s not just a loose connection and reseat connectors on the inverter (it looks like you already done this part). Next, I would try replacing the inverter board. It might fix your problem with the backlight. It’s possible that you have a faulty cable, bad motherboard or even bad LCD screen, but I would try replacing the screen inverter first.

Dell latitude Cpi LCD screen Backlighting?

What do you mean exactly?

To increase or decrease the backlight brightness use Fn-key(next to left Ctrl-key) with up and down arrows.

There is not some key-combination to turn off the screen, you can make your computer turn it off after some time (if you're using XP this can be done in control panel->Power options), or just close the lid :)

The screen still displays the image but the backlight if off

you need to get the inverter changed out. Thats the part that changes DC to AC and powers the backlight
