View Full Version : What's wrong with my LCD

29-05-2010, 02:37 PM
Hi, just out of curiosity. I have a laptop that I bought in 2000 and it still working via a CRT monitor.

The laptop screen does not work. If you press Fn + another button to switch the screens you do get a light glow but it is pretty much just black.

If you tilt the screen to the side next to the window light there is a horizontal band on to the bottom of the screen, maybe 1" height of a dark green colour.

Anyone know what's wrong with it?
Not looking to fix it but curious to know why.

Many thanks.

Sounds a bit like the the Back lighting has gone AWOL.

Probably faulty inverter, lamp, or both...

The green band sounds a bit odd though
