Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Hello I have another Toshiba Satellite L25 S1217 Issue, this time it seems to be more serious. recently it started showing what appeared to be all the signs of a dying backlight. The function keys didn't work, so I never could change the brightness. I came across a Good Display and inverter from another L25 that I was planning on parting out. to my shock, that display was dim as well, and testing the other display on the parts unit, it was dim at first but brightened to normal levels in 2 min. t


Answers :

Sounds like you have a bad backlight fuse on the MOBO. It can be fixed but you will have to figure out which fuse it is. It should be somewhere near the video connector, but it could also be a transistor. You would need proper testing equipment and schematics to locate your problem child if that is the case.
