Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 6000 Notebook ?

Dark pink Dell Inspiron 6000 display

\015 I've a similar problem and hope an expert can pinpoint the problem for me.When I turned on the laptop, it usually starts with an almost blank screen, then it slowly lit up faintly with a shade of pink. Windows logo etc. is visible faintly. If the laptop is plugged into an external monitor, everything shows properly on the monitor. In other words, it no longer works as a laptop. There are 2 USB slots at the back of the laptop and the top one might not recognize the device being plugged in once in awhile. Given the location, is there any correlation with the LCD issue?Much appreciated if somebody can confirm which part(s) needed to be replaced and roughly the repair costs, so I have an idea how loud my wallet should be yelling.Thank you so much\015

Answers :

Your wallet will be yelling a bit. The display problems are typical of the back lighting system going out. These are the lights inside the display that light it up enough for you to see it. Without them the images are still there but too faint to see. There is nothing actually wrong with the lcd just these lights.

\015\012A typical back lighting repair kit will be about $100 for the parts and then there is the labour. You need to consider the cost of repairs verses purchase price of a laptop. There are some very capable new ones out there for about $400. Unless you can repair it yourself (not hard) or your techie will work cheap for you on this, you do need to consider replacement. Before you rush out to buy a new one make sure there is no warranty left from either the manufacturer or the store you bought from.
\015\012
\015\012I know of lots of people who would just use it as a desktop system with an external monitor keyboard etc.
\015\012
\015\012So you need to consider if you need it portable, if you want to spend the repair money or if a new one would be money better spent. Sometimes if it is a higher end laptop it is definitely worth fixing even if it is a few years old.
