Solved Emachine E525 laptop display problem

Specs: Windows 7

Hello all,
I have an emachine E525 that I am having display problems with. When I boot up, the laptop display does not work, but if I plug in a VGA monitor the external monitor will work. When I hit Fn+F6, the laptop display will come on for a few seconds and then blink out again. I have noticed that if I look at it closely with a flashlight, I can see a very, very faint image on the laptop display.

I have removed and reinstalled the driver, then reformatted and reinstalled Win7, to no avail.

From what I have gathered, it is either the backlight or the inverter. Is there a way to tell which part I need?

Thanks for any help you can offer.

Mike

It could be either, as failure of either will give the same symptoms. However, as the screen is coming on for a few seconds and then blacking out again, my guess is it's the inverter board which needs replacing, but I could be wrong.

To avoid disappointment I would replace both the backlight & the inverter board.
