Hello people, I cracked my laptop screen so bought a new one and installed it only to have a blank screen on start up. My old screen was plugged into an inverter and the new one I bought had one of these conversion kits on it. I looked at plenty of installation videos so am pretty sure it was installed correctly. I'm probably going to send the screen back. When I plugged the old screen back in that also had a blank display whereas it had a backlight before I took it out and you could make out some of the display. The laptop works fine when connected to a monitor via a DVI lead.
Hoping I haven't damaged anything in the process of exchanging it.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Sounds like the new one is defective. I'd contact the seller for a replacement.

Hi,

Am I understanding correctly  that You bought a LED LCD screen with some sort of conversion kit to replace a CCFL LCD screen?

 

I hope that you have not damaged the Video cable or the Inverter cable or the inverter, You could also have damaged the old screen further. These are all possibilities.

 

One other possibility, Are You sure the the cables from the motherboard to the screen and inverter are plugged into the motherboard tightly.

 

In Your position right now I would Assemble it and try to find a local computer shop that offers low cost or free repair estimates.

 

Good Luck

Roger

Here's a link to the screen on eBay http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=230879040050 and yes you are right rotor it is a LCD with a conversion kit to replace a ccfl screen. I will also check the cable to the motherboard, I also think I may of damaged the cables myself.

Depending on which laptop you have, the cable may very well have been damaged. Some bezels are real easy to take off while others are difficult.

 

One other thing. When removing the old screen, the cables are usually taped to the back of the screen and need to be carefully peeled off. The camera cable is often included in that, so be particularly careful.

 

Sorry to hear of your problem and what I just said will not help much but you may want to consider a new cable.
