Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A45-S150 Notebook ?

Monitor Went "BLIND"!

\015 The built-in monitor pannel/screen of my notebook went BLACK all of sudden after 2 years of regular use, and I can't see anything...! \015\012Has anyone ever had the same problem? And any idea about how to fix it? \015\012\015\012This is the 2nd notebook I'd experienced the same problem - last one was Sony laptop - and I suppose both Toshiba and Sony got their monitor pannel parts from the same manufacture (in China)!!\015

Do you have a problem with the backlight on your laptop? If yes, you\015\012are not alone, that’s one of the most common laptop problems. In most\015\012cases the screen inverter is the culprit. Here are some LCD screen backlight failure symptoms that could be related to a bad inverter board:
\015\012- Laptop boots as usual but after some time the screen\015\012blacks out. You still can see an image on the screen but it’s very dim.\015\012You might even use a flashlight to see it better. Sometimes the\015\012backlight comes back for a while but then goes off again. In some cases\015\012you can turn the backlight on if you tap rapidly on the lid close\015\012switch.
\015\012- The screen always stay black and the backlight never comes on but you\015\012still can make out an image on the LCD. It’s dark, but the image is\015\012still there.
\015\012-In some cases you might hear a buzzing noise coming from the area\015\012where the inverter board is located, it’s on the bottom part of the\015\012display assembly.
\015\012 NOTE: if you cannot see an image on the screen, most likely\015\012you have a different problem and there is nothing wrong with the screen\015\012inverter.
Hi,
\015\012Actually, there's 3 major manufacturers of laptops and parts.
\015\012Can you connect to an external monitor and boot the unit up. You may have to toggle (F3 or F5 i think) between on board and external a few times. If you get an image on the external, it's probly the lcd inverter (#1), or the backlight (#2), or the cable is not completely connected to the lcd (#3)
\015\012Let me know how the external monitor test works and we'll narrow it down from there.
\015\012Good luck
