I had my laptop brightness turned down this morning (the laptop was still usable at this point) and when I went to turn it back up, it didn't go any brighter. So I turned the laptop off and back on... and it blue-screened. I turned it off/on again and ever since then, all I can see is a VERY faint image of the screen... no brightness whatsoever. I can barely tell what's going on if I point my flashlight at it. Completely unusable
Here's a picture of my flashlight on the screen.. you can barely make out the MS Word logo: http/
Any ideas? Thanks for the help. I really appreciate the helpful atmosphere here.
I looked on Amazon and I see LTN160AT03-001 but not LTN160AT03-002. Would that one still work? Does anyone have a direct link to the screen that I should be looking at buying? I really don't want to spend ~$100 on the wrong part and have to deal with returns and those kind of hassles.
Weird indeed. What would you suggest personally? Is there a decent chance that the Amazon screen will be incompatible, or is the compatibility of these parts somewhat flexible? I don't have a problem paying a few extra dollars for the eBay screen, but it will take two weeks or so to get here
Maybe they use the same picture for different screens they sell at Amazon.com, and it's the reason they cover the sticker. But one thing I noticed from Amazon, they don't mention which laptop will use the screen. On the other hand, eBay mention the screen they sell is compatible to your laptop. It's up to you to judge which one you will buy.
Does anyone have any ideas as to why the new screen is having the same problem? I haven't done much work at all with these kinds of internal parts.. so I'm drawing a blank. The laptop still functions perfectly when connected to another display via HDMI but I don't want to completely lose the portability. I'd like to get the internal screen working
Thanks for all the help so far and I'm looking forward to any ideas.
