Having problems with your HP Pavilion DV1010 Notebook ?

Backlight failure HP DV1010

\015 A few days ago the computer told me that there was a fatal error with the video card, and then when i reset it the computer worked just fine... so i uploaded the latest drivers for the card, per the computer's recommendation. now the backlight doesn't work at all; the screen is still there, but no backlight, so it is next to impossible to see what is going on on the screen. i can tell it's still there, and i can still do things, just you can't see the screen.\015

Answers :

If it is the inverter, it is an easy and inexpensive fix. One of my DV1010US screens did the same thing and I was able to fix it in less than 20 minutes after the part arrived. No mercury hazard since you only remove the front plastic frame of the LCD.

- Download the service manual for the DV1000 for free on the Web.
- Purchase a *new* inverter board off the internet.
- Follow the few steps needed to disassemble to get at the old inverter. (You do NOT need to take the whole LCD apart... merely the front frame assembly.)
- Unplug and unscrew the old inverter then plug in and screw down the new one.
- Reassemble the DV1000.
- Power up and see if it did the trick!

For the low price of a new inverter and a little patience, you can probably fix it. This reply was typed with the DV1010 on which I replaced the inverter.
You need a new screen or inverter, depending on the problem. You can't\015\012replace the backlight itself because it is build into the LCD panel.\015\012Using a mercury reaction, it makes light. Because of the mercury, it is\015\012also dangerous to replace.

I have the same issue with my dv1000 "If I press the switch at the top left of the unit ( the one that puts the unit in standby when the lid is closed), the screen comes to life momentarily sometimes for 15 to 20 seconds.
