New laptop screen is completely black when I turn it on?
I replaced my old cracked screen with a new LCD screen of the same make and model. Model B116XW02 V.0 LTN116AT01 CLAA116WA0A LP116WH1-TLN1 TLP1
Now when I turn the laptop on, the screen is totally black. But when I shine a bright light on the back of the screen, an image appears on screen. So is this a dead backlight or bad inverter?
Weird thing is, the old screen lit up fine, it was just badly cracked. The new screen is totally dark. BUT now when I try in the old screen, it’s also totally dark but passes the flashlight test. So what’s the deal? Did I blow the inverter somehow? Damage a cable? I’ve checked the connections a hundred times and it’s driving me crazy. I don’t even know where the inverter is on an Acer TravelMate 8172T and I can’t mess around with the board. Please help!
Is this a good question?
