Can anyone help me with my problem?
My L520 screen is black when I turn it on. Everything powers up, the on/off button is on, I can hear the fan going and the cd Rom tray opens okay.
I've tried the usual stuff like removing the battery and holding the power button for a minute or so, removed and replaced the Ram boards but nothing works.
When I turn my machine on and shine a bright light at the screen I can see the (very faint) ThinkPad logo so I'm sure it's a problem with the screen.
Anyone any suggestions on how to fix this problem?
Thanks in advance.
For my money, your problem might be backlight fault in the panel - if you see something faintly visible there. Try shining a light (can be the torchlight from your smartphone) into the screen at varying angles. If that helps you see any letters/graphics (whatever is displayed) then it's backlight for sure. If re-seating and reconnecting cables doesn't help, such symptoms mean you need to replace the panel.
Of course, you should also try with an external display - just connect some monitor you find to the VGA port and start the system like this. This will help you verify the system runs fine (which I guess is the case).
