TOSHIBA TECRA S1 No Display

  1. My TOSHIBA TECRA S1 has no display at all, I have it connected to a stand alone monitor and the laptop itself is operating perfectly, just have no display. Does anybody know if there is a way to troubleshoot the screen display to find out if it is good or bad, or what the problem might be? Thanks!

    Hi

    So when you turn it on you get nothing, could be a bad connection from the board to the screen, or the screen itself is faulty.

    There are no methods to trouble shoot the problem all you can do is swap the screen from a working laptop and see if that works.

    Best advice back up, format and stick it on Ebay as a faulty unit and use the money to buy a new one.

    Regards

    I personally dont like Tosiba's so Ididmyc600's advice may be the way to go. But you may also want to look on eBay for a replacement screen. I did for a Compaq one time that needed replacement. It was years ago but I think it was only around $30 bucks. This may be a cheaper alternative for you too.
