by on November 26, 2011

Q: Dropped HP laptop Pavillion dv6000. small damage to cover at hinge but functioned well until later reboot.

Now very, very dim screen (nearly unviewable but other systems and programs working.

Can anything be done at home to re-illuminate screen?

    Without actually taking the laptop apart, I’d guess that either the screen backlight is damaged or the cable that supplies power to the backlight is loose/damaged.

    You’ll need to either contact HP or locate a local repair shop to get a repair quote.
