Strange Laptop Problem...need help

I have a Toshiba Satellite L-675-06k (warranty now expired), which has been working perfectly up until recently. When I turn it on, the screen back light turns on, but there is no image. Sound works, and when I connect it to any external monitor (via RGB or HDMI) it works. Pushing around the hinge area doesn't help either. I'm pretty sure I dropped it (but only a few inches) - I just kind of let down my backpack with my laptop in it. I know this is why I have the screen issue because it was working at school just prior to when I 'dropped' it.
So, what could be the problem here? I'm hoping a video cable just got knocked loose, but I don't want to open it up without getting an idea of where the problem could be.

  1. video cable between the screen and the machine could be cut or diconnect google to see how you could dismantle
  2. Meh I got it fixed, they ended up replacing the entire LCD panel. Turns out it was under warranty, so it didn't cost me anything :D :D :D
