Hi all,

I'm having a problem repairing a video issue on a Compaq Presario V5000 laptop.

The problem was when the computer would start up it would have a orange/red hue and them come up with a very dim screen.
I replaced the inverter but the problem was exactly the same.
I then replaced the screen and the orange/red hue went away and the screen picture comes up bright and clear for about a minute and then goes very dim again.
Any ideas on what could be causing this?
If you need more information, please let me know.

You could be having an issue with the video processor.

Is there any settings that are enabled that might be putting the video into some sort of suspend mode?

When you say dim, I take it you're saying the back light goes dim, does anything you do make it brighten back up again?

If so please discribe it as best you can.

Kind regards.
