Hi I own a Sony VAIO notebook and recently the screen just refused to come on again. When I turn it on, it glows a different shade of grey than when it is off but there are no images. I hooked up the notebook to my desktop monitor and it works but I really dont know what happened to the lcd screen.
I am sure it is not the lcd/crt toggle switch.
Most of the places I have called to find out about repair have standard rates irrespective of the problem. The thing is if it is just a wire that needs sodered, I would not mine paying the fee but if the lcd is busted it probably does not make sense to repair it considering the price of lcds and the fact that the notebook is not the newest.
So from the symptoms I have described do you think that the lcd is gone and I should avoid taking it to repair or do you think it is something that can be fixed???
