Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite 5205-S703 Notebook ?

Display has gone bad with fine vertical pink lines

\015 Suddenly failed and lost resolution on screen. White lines appear on start up screens and pink after boot up with green lines on black background. Seems unstable with flickering. Hoping I don't have to change the motherboard, but need some help with this one. I have a Toshiba Satellite 5205 s703 running XP SP3Thank you,Tim\015

\015\012The fault could be a defective inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or a faulty CCFL lamp. Most likely a faulty CCFL lamp.

  • 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.
\015\012 All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) as reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp

\015\012The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.
