Satellite A660 - screen does not work

I have a Satellite A660 and when not hooked to an external monitor or TV, the laptop screen is white and you can't use it.
The only way I can use the laptop and being able to see the screen is if I connect the laptop to the TV via a HDMI cable and use it like that.
The laptop is less then 6 months and is rarely taken at our office in our office.

I was wondering if anyone else has had this problem or knows what it can be.

If this is not the case, how I had to do to someone qualified by toshiba for have a look that would be a problem of guarantee being under 6 months old.

Thank you in advance for any help anyone can provide.

Have you tried to use the FN + F5 to switch between the internal and external screen?
Try this.

If that does not help, then I would recommend contact the ASP in your country, because security must still be valid (as you posted it above).
I think that the internal display is faulty, because the output of the video work, which means that this graphics card should be ok.

  • Satellite M70 - screen does not work properly

    Hello world

    My screen on the laptop does not work correctly. He sometimes starts to white and becomes inadmissible. I followed the problem down, I think of what I can only describe as a fluorescent light ballast in the upper left of the screen (when looking from the front). If I use a clothes pin and apply steady pressure in the upper left corner, it is achievable. That is to say I can still use it.

    But barely.

    When disassemble the screen there is a kind of metal plate on the side of the screen and there is a part called electw f-1 94v-0 coming in contact with this piece of metal. My guess is that the two pieces have shorted or well have become loose such as tightening this part of the screen made it work again. There are discolorations burned on the piece of metal and the underlying aluminum backup that spans the entire screen. There is also a very slight discoloration burned on the play in question also.

    But as I said that the screen still works if I apply the necessary pressure in the upper left corner (currently with a clothes PIN).

    I have no money and cannot pay to have this problem so I have to come with an eraser he togetether solution myself or end without a laptop.

    What is this part? Part of 94v-0 f - 1 of the Electw? It is manufactured by Tyco Electronics, but in a search on their site I could not find it. And Googling shows up nothing important. There are two of these parties behind the screen on my Toshiba. The one on the right and one on the left.

    They are sodered to two sons, one black and one white that goes down to the area of FL Inverter.

    I know it's a long shot, but I wonder what that these pieces don't and if there is no hope for a temporary solution that will alleviate me of having to use a clothes pin in the upper left corner of the screen to get the screen to work. Perhaps by folding the parts to better contact with this or that. I tried to move a party earlier that helped a little but not much.

    It's got so bad that it sparkles now... a little constantly. Very annoying. But... still usable.

    Any input would be appreciated.

    Thank you.


    If the part is attached to the screen, then you will need to replace the LCD screen, or ask someone to fix it if possible.

    You can not buy the different parts of a strainer.

    If you are referring to the wiring harness/LCD screen, then you can buy a replacement at a cheap price. They are not expensive.

  • Satellite A660 Wireless does not work: how to turn on the wireless switch?

    Wireless to the new laptop just stopped working. When I press Fn + f8 it says: Wireless Communication is disabled. Please activate the Wireless Communication switch.

    I tried to disable and enable wireless, update (Realtek PCie FE family controller) and Broadcom 802.11n network adapter driver and load the default settings in the Bios but nothing has worked. The button on the top panel wireless is turned on and when I press the button, a window called support thoshiba button jump upward and said: the key has not been configured. But this happens to other laptops also (we have 8 portable type, even), it cannot use the wifi. What can I do now?

    Please reinstall the Wlana driver and try again. (Do not to update to uninstall the old driver, restart the device and install the new drivers)
    In most cases these disorders Wlan is displayed if the WiFi driver does not work correctly.
    Given that all other laptops are ok, I think that it is a temporal matter in the registry or something like that

    PS: It is possible that the FN buttons do not work corectly. Therefore, you can reinstall the VAP (value added package) and support of card Flash Utility so in order to reconfigure the FN keys.

  • Satellite M45 - screen does not work properly

    I followed the instructions at the bottom of this thread by Jimi

    I use Windows XP Home 2002 SP3, Vista then I used Jimis instructions rather than the senior son for Vista. In any case, I used the instructions of Jimi and he fixed the DVD RAM problem - works good as new now, but now my screen is a normal screen, when I have a big screen.
    17.5 inches and it uses a 4:3 ratio and my taskbar are high and when I drag my mouse underneath, just stretches on the graph of pointer.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    The display driver and the BIOS updates, you can get on the Toshiba site.
    Download-online portable => Satellite-M45-xxxxx (your model number) online

    In the BIOS update package is a readme text file so first read this.
    The display driver normally also contains text file and there you must start only the file of configuration or installation.

  • Satellite L550 screen does not work

    My Satellite L550 laptop shows that a screen empty.
    I attached another screen. I've already updated the display driver. Then I tried to update the BIOS. There were 2 versions to upgrade to.

    When I tried to upgrade to the 2011 version, I got the following error: "Version of Bios more high capacity 220/battery more than 10%/AC is attached. Then I upgraded to the oldest, one dating from 2010, which gave no error. The screen remains blank.

    What can I try next?
    Thanks in advance!

    If possible try to connect your laptop to external monitor and check if you can see something on the screen.
    > So I had to upgrade to the oldest, one dating from 2010, which gave no error. The screen remains blank.
    How, you can upgrade the BIOS if you don't see anything on the screen? I don't understand this. ?:|

  • Satellite L300 - 1-5 - the screen does not work

    Recently, I encountered a problem with my laptop, the screen does not work.
    I tested my inverter of the screen and my backlight lamp to see that if that was the problem, but they both worked perfectly, I then tried the entire screen with the parts and that worked too. (I tried in my friends Toshiba Satellite L300 - 217)

    Then I looked around online and got told to try to connect my laptop to an external monitor, so I did and the screen didn't work there either. So now I'm stuck, I have tried everything even made sure all connections aren't loose etc but it still does not.

    Anyone know what the problem with my laptop?

    Thank you, Tom

    Hey Buddy,

    > connect my laptop to an external monitor, so I did and the screen didn't work there either.
    This means that the internal monitor is ok and the reason must be the graphics card or card mother herself.

    I guess for now, you get only a screen empty and nothing happens on your laptop?

    In this case, you should contact the closest service provider authorized in your country. Just get in touch with the guys and ask for help. They can check the cell phone and fix it! ;)

    Can someone help me please on a screen problem? I have a Toshiba Satellite A60-122 and when I turn it on the screen does not work. It remains black as if the power of the laptop was turned off. I tried to connect the laptop to an external monitor, but it still does not work. I have no more ideas of what can do to make it work.

    I already told to format the pc with the cd of restoration but without an image, it is impossible to do anything...
    Thank you


    Hello Isabel

    I'm not an expert, but if there is no image on LCD internal display and the external monitor, I assume that there is a problem with the graphics card. I think you should contact the customer Service of your country partner and let check the device.

    I also hope that the warranty is still valid and if something needs to be replaced they will do it for free.

    Bye and let us know if you have more information about it.

  • Screen does not work on Satellite L775-10F

    I turn on the computer and the screen does not work. Everything seems fine but the screen is all black.

    Nothings happening. I tried turning market and its still does not.
    I also tried to connect to my TV with an hdmi cable.

    What should I do?

    Connect it to the TV and wait until Windows 7 is fully loaded (you will hear sound Win) than trying to use FN + F5 several times. It may happen on the TV Office. Be sure you use the right settings on the TV (HDMI port must be enabled on the right).

    F nothing helps I presume the display can be defective then contact the closest service Toshiba and let them check your laptop.

  • Qosmio DX730 and Win8 - touch screen does not work


    My wife's parents bought a Toshiba Qosmio DX730 (model PQQ11A). They have recently upgraded to Windows 8 and the touch screen does not work now.

    The problem is lack of drivers (the monitor driver reports as a generic PnP monitor).

    I have went on the Toshiba site and selected downloads driver for the appropriate model and installed a number of drivers, including recommended NVidia display drivers. There is no drivers on the site that seem to install support for Toshiba touchscreen.

    Are there no drivers available for this model Windows 8? If not, is there another solution? If Yes, where can I find them. Any help very appreciated because they have nice and bought computer Windows 8 so they could use the touch functions.

    Thank you.
