hi all as in previous tpost further down i explained screen comes on fully when little movement of lcd cable just where it plugs to mother board so got another wire but does same thing so now know it wasnt wire so thinking what inverter or lcd backlight please help as i do not want to buy 1 then its the other is the only way finding out by buying part and testing. thanks in advance
Alright, since you can move the new video cable near the LCD hinge and get video on the screen, it has to be a bad connection on the inverter. Sometimes the inverter connections burn and oxidize, or become loose
yea mate i got a 2nd hand cable from ebay from good supllier tested and it does exact same as before touch the cable inbetween plug to mb and plug to inverter just near hinge and screen comes on fine soon as go to move again it goes off again sometimes pure black sometimes can see faintly the windows screen in the back ground.. so you reckon get inverter ?
yea i got good ideal mate just wanted to be 100% as some people say could be backlight but like u and i say when i move the cable the screen comes on and i see back light all working as screen fully functional . your a top man and great asset to the site mate thanks T
hi alll and tmagic i now changed inverter and still exact same thing u can see the screen faintly in the back groundif u move the screen about i looked for this lid closed switch as i heard it is in the area by the left hinge but i cannot see it anywhere what do u suggest now magic .. cheers
When you close the laptop cover, there is a very small switch that turns off the LCD display. It is on the motherboard or on a small circuit board near one of the top cover hinges... I have never had a laptop do what you describe here exactly. Because you can see a faint image, this indicates that the backlight is turned off. It is easier to replace the whole LCD Panel than it is to replace just the backlight
£42 for a screen then wondering if i buy the new screen weather it will still do it < meaning could it be this switch coz does seem funny how screen comes on fully when i touch the lcd cable near the bit where it plugs in under keyboard
na no switch anywhere that i can see i heard this model has a magnetic strip as the lid close thing .. and i gently touch the cable just inbetween the connection to mb and connection to inverter and screen comes on
