    I've since found that the backlight isn't on. When I hold a flashlight to the screen, I can see the display. Does anyone know where the backlight button is? Does this model have one?

    so, the backlight or inverter need to be replaced?

Either it is set to use an external monitor, or the backlight or inverter is bad

Power turns but screen stays black no


Sounds like you need a new LCD Screen(is the screen a little lit up or completely blank) If completely blank than most likely the LCD needs to be replaced if it appears to be slightly lit up than most likely it is a software related issue.

I have an MSI Wind U100 which was powered down without any drama but the next day when it switched on, the screen remained black and only the blue power light plus the Wifi and bluetooth indicators...


It is likely that the backlight went out on the screen. This model has an LED backlight and can be replaced. If you are mechanically inclined, you can purchase a new one on ebay or amazon and replace. If this is a motherboard problem, then it is likely not worth fixing. One way to tell is to see if the screen is completely black. To test, turn on the computer and go near a bright light source. if you can barely make out any image on the screen, then the LED backlight is bad. If the screen is as dark as it is when the computer is off, then it is likely the motherboard.

Screen went blank


cslkkent, Your description of problem fits the common "black" or "blank n black" lcd screen symptom. Because 98 percent of all desktop cold cathode fluorescent lamp back-lit lcd monitors use the same basic lighting technology, it will be in your best interest to view some video clips of CCFL back-lit lcd monitor repair on YOUTUBE just for info on typical causes of black or blank n black screen symptoms and how some owners do repair on the cheap! Yes, your unit may have BAD capacitors on the power supply printed circuit board or one "thermally intermittant" component solder joint which will need to be resoldered. Just do some research first. Read fixya profiles of "buddymc" , "budmrtn" and my own files. Good luck on your quest. 12fixlouie

Blank screen and flashing green light near on/off switch


fred_lane, Well, it could also be just black, or both black and blank! DID you do flashlight test that every CCFL back-lit lcd monitor owner should know how to perform and interpret the results for when confronted with a black screen problem that is not caused by sleep mode?? I can only suspect a bad "switch-mode-power-supply" that is in partial or full SHUTDOWN mode due to it detecting a FAULT CONDITION with itself or the CCFL inverter circuit supply. Read other options you have open to you in my fixya profile! 12fixlouie Hope this steers you in good direction.
