I have recently fitted a new LCD panel to a Dell 1545 Inspiron Laptop as well as a new inverter. When i boot it it gives a quick flash on the screen and thats it. I have tested the panel on the inverter on my packard bell and it lights up ok. I have an output to an external monitor too.
When i ran the dell diagnostics, it came up with a Error Code 0321-LCD EDID - unable to access EDID EEPROM.
The inverter passed ok. The HDD also failed on a error code 0142- self test unsuccesful status 70.
the computer boots into vista ok on the external monitor, but there is only a flash on the laptop screen when you try to switch back over to the laptop.
when i checked the BIOS the version is A10 but the LCD panel was listed as unknown.
Could it be the wrong panel? it seems to me that the power to the inverter is being switched off as it only gives you a quick flash on the screen and thats that.
Can anybody tell me what the EDID EEPROM fault is?
Incidentally the laptop was sat on thats why the screen needed replacement.
