Having problems with your Toshiba PC Desktops ?

Toshiba Satellite P25-S5092/ Computer will come on, but screen will not work. Wondering if it is most likely the LCD screen itself, the backlight or something else.


Answers :

Hi,

If you have deduced that indeed the Toshiba Satellite P25-S5092 will boot and therefore operational except no display on the screen, you can always verify by connecting an external monitor. You of course would need to press Fn + F? (the F key with the small monitor icon).

As to the LCD screen having no display, often this could either be the CCF lamps (cold cathode florescent) and/or the inverter that powers it. One way to verify this is by shining a flashlight obliquely to the screen and a portion of your desktop would show albeit very very dark. Often, it is the inverter that fails. In some instances it could even just be a cold solder, loose connection or capacitors that have dried up, leaky or blistering.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I have a Dell laptop D505. The laptop powers up but the screen display is very dim. I can't see the image on the monitor.

Dell Inspiron B130 was black when turned on. Holding flashlight to screen, could see desktop and all icons. Was able to open programs, etc., while looking with flashlight. Replaced LCD Inverter listed for B130. It turned on fine, worked about 2 days, then started flickering, and went black again. Could this be power surge from motherboard, or backlight instead? By the LCD Inverter I purchased working for a couple of days, I felt like that was the problem, but something is knocking it out again.
