I was given a Dell Latitude D-610 today that have a strange display problem : when the computer boot, screen goes black after 6 seconds (delay after which I can still see images, provided light is at the right angle). When such a thing happen, I can get an image again by simply closing the laptop and opening it again.
So. What can I do to have the screen working again?
- opening it and finding in the cable mess which one is responsible for the neon to turn off?
- considering it lost and cannibalize its parts?
EDIT Indeed, according to Jeff comment, the symptom is screen backlight turning off. But, as all House MD viewers know, it's not Lupus ... err, I mean the cause could be software, hardware and its multiple variations.
