Having problems with your Toshiba PC Laptops ?

Screen is very dim - can hardly see - Toshiba PC Laptops


Answers :

Hi,
It sounds like the problem is the inverter cable or the inverter itself.
If you have any warranty left on the laptop then i recommend you take advantage of that and send it in for repair. Or you can deal with this 2 ways.
Fix the problem yourself.
Remove the screen bezel (plastic screen surround), this will\015\012reveal the whole screen. At the bottom of the screen you will see an\015\012elongated piece of circuit board with wires coming from either end\015\012covered by frosted plastic.
That is the inverter, check the connections on the inverter and power the laptop up to check the display, to remove it\015\012gently pull the plugs from each end and remove the screw from the\015\012middle and pull the board away.
Look at the inverter for a copper coil, if you\015\012re-solder the solder points around the coil you may find it works again\015\012as components that suffer from extreme heat the solder joints dry\015\012causing bad connections, re-floating the solder solves the problem in\015\01290% of cases.

Take the laptop for repair.
In this case all you have to do is source a reputable PC repair store and take it in for them to fix. (it should be fairly inexpensive).



Good luck.




Good luck.
Increase the brightness by pressing the brightness keys on the laptop.

If this happens as soon as you switch on the laptop then it could be a problem with the lighting fuse on the screen itself.
\015\012It will have to be taken to a Toshiba repair center.

My Acer Aspire 3680 has began to require (usually) a three-step process to get it to come up after powering it off for the night. First I turn it on. I hear noise like it's going to come up, but after about 30 seconds, it turns itself off. Next I press the power button again. This time I see the normal Acer screen, but it's a very dim screen. It then turns totally dark while I continue to hear the hard drive working, but it never comes up. So after about a minute. I press the power button and it
