I have just recently brought a Laptop of Trade Me and the screen works but is very dark. It said this in the auction and I brought it knowing this was the case. Now I was wondering whether you guys could give a look into it and possibly tell me what to fix/replace/tweak.

Cheers Guys

Try the Fn hotkeys to make the brightness more.

Or the backlight is dead

BTW Welcome to PF1:)

Take it to QMB if you are in Auckland.

www.qmb.co.nz

Or any PC repair shop near you.

If its a laptop under 400 I wouldn't bother, as the screen itself may be quick expensive.

Hard to say without seeing it, I'm not a repair tech and only one of them will be able to tell you once they have inspected it

IT would cost most of the price of a new laptop.
Use an external monitor.

Hi Njbb1995

Yep, your lappie's backlight and/or invertor is dead. Provided you can source another at a reasonable price they are relatively easy to fit yourself. Goto HERE (http://www.laptoprepair.co.uk/how-to-repair-backlight-inverter.htm)for instructions.
