Having problems with your Dell Inspiron B130 Notebook ?

I changed the inverter and the screen still won't stay on completely... it keeps coming on for a few seconds and then turns right off. I can use an external monitor though and everything works fine... what is there to do?


Answers :

If you have replaced the inverter board inside the LCD display with a known good one then the most likely cause for your issue is a bad or failing LCD bulb. An easy way to tell if this is the case is in the few seconds that the backlight is working see if you notice a slight pinkish hue in the light. This means that there is a mico-fracture in the bulb itself, as the inverter board supplies power to the failing bulb it heats up and shuts off. LCD bulbs in laptop screens can be replaced but this is not something I recommend for anyone but a VERY advanced user with the correct tools are his or her disposal. I needed, I can provide you with a step by step explanation. If you do not feel that you can handle a bulb replacement then the easiest thing you can do is replace the LCD itself.
