Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad T22 2647 Notebook ?

My IBM thinkpad is not working

\015 When I turn on my think pad, my screen goes blank? what is the problem?\015

Answers :

If you hear the hard drive spinning and you think Windows is working but you can't see an image then :-
\015\012You could have a defective screen - a defective inverter or a CCFL lamp or simply the video cable needs reseating. After reseating the video cable and the problem is still there then :-
To determine if you have a LCD screen or video card problem, read this and follow the instructions.

Defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom:

  • Screen flashs on red/pink and off. \015\012
  • Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. \015\012
  • Picture flickering with dim display or appear black. \015\012
  • Picture flickering on and off.
All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp

Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power it up, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight.

Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.
