Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A105-S4074 Notebook PC ?

Just replaced a cracked screen in a toshiba a105-s4074....when i turn it on i can barely see the screen....it is very dim.....when i plug the old cracked 1 up it works fine....any suggestions?

Answers :

If you see a dim image on the LCD screen it means you have a backlight problem.
Connect an external monitor to the laptop and power it up, if you see a clear image on an external monitor, this means your video card is OK.

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.

This where I would suggest marking new parts from old parts and start switching parts on and off. Start with the screen first, if you have an old screen, plug it into the new inverter on the computer and fire it up, if the old screen lights up even i ... PC Laptops
