Laptop: The screen is black. The back light is visible
Since I haven't really found anything that brought me any further, I decided to put up a question myself.
After my laptop got dropped, the monitor stopped displaying. The only thing that's still working is the back light. It reacts when I change the brightness, too. Also, I tried to connect an external monitor; it didn't help.
My guess is that a contact has got loose. I try to find it but I don't even know where to screw the laptop open exactly.
My laptop isn't made by a big brand, so does anyone know where such contacts are usually?
dvda, lets start you off with the service manual. Download that from here. It will show you how to disassemble your laptop properly :) Once you have it opened, take a look at the connector to the LCD. Make sure it is properly seated, as well as all other connections. Let us know how you are coming along. Hope this helps, good luck.
