I have a Toshiba Satellite A205 that has a "dead" screen. An external monitor still worked, so I thought it was just the cable leading from the
motherboard to the screen. I replaced that, and it didn't fix the problem. So I figured it may be the inverter. But as far as I understand, when an
inverter goes bad, the image is just very faint, this is totally black. And I forget what key it was that I was holding, but when booting up, I was
able to to get the screen to turn bright white, so I'm assuming that means the backlight can be lit up just fine. Anyone have an idea of what this
I figure if I can't diagnose I, I'll tear it apart, make a new case from plexiglass, and turn it into a home theater computer or something, but I'd
like to try and get it working again just out of principle. Thanks in advance.
