Laptop Display Problems

Hello all,

I am attempting to fix a Compaq Presario laptop with display issues.

After fixing the switch that turns the display on and off I now have this problem:

The display will turn on for about a second when you first turn the computer on, and each time i press and release the switch for the screen.

After this the back light (i assume) turns off. You can still barely see an outline of what is on the screen.
I assumed it may be the backlight, or inverter. But I am unsure.

I would love for anyone with experience in this to help me out.

Thank you much and I hope I explained that somewhat clearly!

Justin

No guarantees but from research I've done lately, it has been suggested that if the light comes on at all it is most likely the inverter..... Good luck...

Well that is useful to know! I figured I would start with replacing the inverter. Now I am just on the hunt for one that isnt really expensive :whistling:

Thank you for your assistance!
