Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A100-S8111TD Notebook ?

Screen is balnk

\015 I spilled juice on it and then it was still working, i turned it off right away. the next day i went to open it the screen did not work. when it starts i could see very clearly it says toshiba then when it goes to load windows i can not see anything, i could just barely see anything its as if i lower the brightness on my compouter you would really have to be a in very dark room to see just the window not the words. does anyone have any idea what might have been short circuited, could it just be the motherboard? let me know thanks in advance/\015

Answers :

You need a new inverter board... it sounds like the transisters or capacitors in the last stage of fireup are gone. I'm no pro, but I've fixed a few lcd monitors with that very same problem.

\015\012Here's something crazy you may want to try at your own risk... I play in a band and very often our guitarist spills beer on his effect pedals. These are digital pedals with very similar components to that of a computer. When they finally give up and stop working, I take them apart and pull out the circuit boards and run them for a few seconds under warm to hot tap water (goes without saying, but NOT salt water, hehe) and then let them dry out for several days. When they are TOTALLY dry and reassembled they work fine again... it washes the ber off and gets rid of any shorts until the next time I have to put them through detox!

\015\012My guess is that the sticky juice is shorting the transistors, which are basically voltage controlled switches... if they don't switch then your monitor lights won't fire up. OR if they are getting too much power because of a shorted cap, they would switch back again, leaving the screen blank.

\015\012Again, I'm no pro and it's at your own risk... but considering it was juice... if I were you and could identify the inverter as the problem and planned to replace it, I would try that as a last resort before spending the cash. Make sure your inverter is completely dry before re-installing it!!!
