Dead screen Tags: Laptops Toshiba Last response: July 8, 2010 11:52 AM in Laptops & Notebooks Share jorgokar July 8, 2010 10:57:21 AM my son accidentally placed a magnet on my laptop's (Toshiba sattelite )screen. Since then the screen has gone dead. Any suggestions ?

More likely it was dropped or had something dropped onto it. If you can take the screen apart yourself make sure no cables have come loose. If not then take it to a local repair shop who should be able to replace the screen for around £120-150 assuming it is a screen fault and not just the inverter that lights up the screen. Also check that the machine has not been set to external monitor mode, usually Fn+f10 (or whatever button has a screen logo on it) Can't find your answer ? Ask !
