So my friend's HP DV6000 developed the classic no backlight, but still LCD image problem [You can barely see an image if you look at it the right way, or shine a light on it.] Instinct told me "Oh, inverter issue!" so, purchased a cheap [this is probably my mistake, I mean real cheap. 10 dollars, USED from ebay... said it was in working condition]. inverter and replaced the old one.
First thing I did was remove just the screen bezel to replace just the inverter board. Turned the computer back on, and It would work for a minute, but as soon as the computer was jostled in the slightest, the screen would go dark again.
Okay, Possibly a loose cable connection to the LCD or the main board. So I dig a bit deeper, and just for good measure, I replaced the cable that connects the main board, the inverter board, and the LCD. Turned the computer back on, and it works better, I can get all the way to the desktop, and I can jostle the laptop pretty good, and it doesn't shut off. However, after about 30-40 seconds of being working on the login screen and desktop, it blanks out again.
So I'm not sure if it's STILL an inverter issue, and I just made the mistake of buying a crappy broken one, or if there's a dual issue, or something else.
I tried to search the forums to the best of my ability, but couldn't find an issue quite like this one.
Any guidance would be appreciated.
