Hello all! 

I replaced my laptop screen in February. A little bit after that my laptop charger broke and I had to replace it. I gave the laptop to my mom and her boyfriend in order to buy a new charger for me. When I got home the laptop was charging, and I opened it to turn it on and it would not come on at all. 
I looked this up online someone told me I probably needed to release some of the charge from the laptop. This did not work. However the next day I was inspecting the laptop and found I could see the contents of the screen very dimly, only when I shined a light on it. I then guessed that either the back light or the inverter was broken. 
However one day I picked up the laptop from the bottom of the screen and the screen came on but only when I applied pressure to the bottom of the screen. 
I don't understand what's wrong with it and I want to send it away for my brother for Christmas and I don't have time to send it to fix. Also the computer is in perfect working order when I hook it up to an external monitor.

The screen has failed, or the inverter (unlikely).

There is a possibility that the cable that plugs the screen to the motherboard may be loose, I have also seen these cables go bad but it is very rare. I would open up the screen and try reseating the cable before buying a new screen.
