Sony vaio PCG-GRT30P Screen Problem

\015 The screen has over the past 6 months sometimes appeared pink, sometimes normal colour. Last week while in use, the screen flickered a couple of times then went black. \015\012\015\012I hibernated computer and then brought out of hibernation and saw "restarting windows" appear at the bottom of the screen, then nothing. \015\012\015\012So, I shut the computer down by switching off. I then turned back on and saw the windows logo and writing what normally appears upon start up..after this the screen remains black. I can hear the computer is operating otherwise and believe the fault is with the screen, however I'm no expert! \015\012\015\012I have tried connecting to 2 different new monitors following all instructions but I get exactly the same result as I do on the laptop screen.\015\012\015\012Thanks for any assistance,\015\012\015\012Luke\015

Answers :

You could have a defective screen, either a faulty inverter or a CCFL lamp - follow this to determine the fault.

Defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom:
\015\012
    \015\012
  • 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. \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.
