HP Pavilion LCD screen is blank
Posted on 2008-09-30
My pavilion laption LCD goes blank but I can barely see the screen. It is too dark to read anything but it is trying to show something. Sometines the display is fine but after a few minutes it goes dark again. The only way to see anything is to use an external monitor. I bought a backlight inverter from eBay (twice) and that did not resolve the issue. What are the reasons for this problem? I suppose the LCD screen could be bad but would this be caused by something else? This is a hardware issue somehow.
If you have experience with this model or series of laptops I would sure appreicate your suggestions. I bought it for my son to use in college but it isn't of much use the way that it is.
