Toshiba Satellite LCD Problem

By bschaf14 ·
I have a toshiba satellite M65-S9092 laptop. The LCD screen all of a sudden quit working. Didn't flicker or distort before, just quit working. I have since replaced the inverter board to no avail. I have looked closely with a flashlight to see if there is a faint image but their is not so I don't think it is a backlight problem. The computer does still work, and it will display properly to an external monitor, but not its own lcd. Any ideas or suggestions???

Graphics chipset?

LCD bad? Bad connections? Set to display to an external monitor?

Try hooking it up to another monitor, this will narrow down possible problems.

As there is no image on the screen the Back Light is unlikely to be the culprit here but you need to check the Ribbon Cable between the M'Board and the Controller Card in the Monitor.

These are a flexable cable which can develop breaks in the tracks so you need to test each track with a Multi Meter to check for breaks and you also need to check that they are correctly inserted into the Sockets at either end.

Also While not as common a thing on some model NB's it's possible to fit this Ribbon Cable in backward so that the Tracks are not making contact with the sockets so you should also check this.
