Hi everyone. I am asking for a bit of help, of course.


I have a Toshiba Satellite L675D-S7016, running Windows 7.


I have had screen problems for some time. It would flash white, go back to regular screen, go back to white and stay that way. I would have to shut the computer down just to get the screen to work again.


Finally the screen just went dead - so I thought.


Actually it was still working, but I had to tilt the screen and shine a light on it to read anything. It was not a quick fix by any means. I can use the computer with an external monitor - my computer is actually working fine - it's just the attached screen.


I DID replace the screen - this did not fix the problem. I still have to tilt the screen to read anything on it. Back to using an external monitor.


Now on to my question: What could be the issue?


Thank you in advance for any help you may give me!

Well, it's the inverter or the backlight bulb. The inverter can be fairly easy to replace, but the bulb can be difficult without knowledge and use of a solder station.
