Answers :

You could have a defective screen - a defective inverter or a CCFL lamp.
To determine if you have a LCD screen or video card problem, read this and follow the instructions.

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.

When wireless switch is flipped on Toshiba laptop Satellite A105-S2716 - the screen goes black and blinks repeatedly. I thought my screen was going bad but as soon as I flip the wireless switch to 'off' and hook into my ether-net connector (land line versus wireless) the screen is fine. I called Toshiba and they said they have no idea and want me to bring in for service. Would like to avoid that as I need my laptop everyday. Anyone know what the problem could be with my wireless?


This could be a connection problem with the wireless antenna, which is interfering with the monitor, as most laptops have a high effeciency antenna which is fitted in the screen surround, so i would send to a qualified repairer to check it out. ... PC Desktops
