Having problems with your HP Pavilion dv1000 Notebook ?

The back light does not stay on after boot up

Answers :

Normally this is caused by the power inverter for the lcd. It is a small circuit board right below the lcd, that powers the backlight. If you take off the front bezel of the laptop you should be able to see it, it will have a 2 wire power cord coming out the one end, and another plug in on the other end with several wires.

9 times out of 10 the problem is just the inverter going out, check ebay for a replacment but make sure you get an identical model as the one you have, as they are very specific to each laptop. The inverter will have the part number written on it.
