I have a Toshiba P20 Notebook. The screen looked like a t.v. using rabbit ears with bad reception. i.e. moving lines and poor resolution. To resolve this I rebooted and sometimes it would work (screen appeared normal). However a few weeks later the problem would not go away no matter what I did. I decided to take it apart. I unplugged the screen and plugged it back in. Things have gone from bad to worse. Now the laptop seems to power up but there is absolutely no image on the screen except the backlight. I thought okay I must have really screwed up the lcd screen by unplugging and plugging it back in but I also don't get an image on an external screen using the blue video port. With this info can anyone suggest a course of action? Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
P.S. Is this problem possibly related to the inverter? Is the inverter used in creating a video signal for the external video port? Or does it just govern the laptop lcd?
