      Backlight of a 4 yr old Sony Vaio

      Can anyone tell me how much would the backlight of a 4 yr old sony vaio cost?

      The brightness on the screen is currently non existent, however i can make out that the laptop is functioning alright and the screen is showing the images. So hence correct me if i am wrong but it seems that the backlight is gone. Its my fathers laptop. Its a VGN-CS17G.

      MODS - pls move to the appropriate thread, if it exists.

      looks like you need to buy new LCD screen, Check at Nehru place it should be around 5k to 6k

      On ebay it is for 6,750.

      Thanks,

      Cant just the backlight be replaced? Coz the screen is working perfectly but it has lost all its light, and is thus very difficult to see.

      AFAIK, there is no backlight behind the LCD screen ... that back-light thing used to come in old gen LCD screens ( calculators / watches ) .

      Edit ..

      Also, there can be issue with the laptop light sensor or try adjusting brighness of the laptop via Function + Brightness combination key.

      hmm, but Sony Viao CS176 comes with WXGA Screen (Clear Bright LCD) and I have not seen any new gen laptops with back-light supporting LCD.

      Not sure about the new gen laptop as most of it comes with LED and other new technologies

      Thanks a lot guys. Its definitely either the inverter board or the backlight/screen, i will be taking it to sony first and then to nehru place if required (knowing these sony guys, i think its quite a possibility)

      Cant believe that i had bought this shit for 60K, even the battery does not last for more than 15-20 mins and takes exactly 346 days to fully charge completely lol. The good ol' toshiba is running like a pro even after 5 yrs in spite of having the problematic vista and still manages a battery life of around 3-3.5 hrs on balanced.


      If i am not travelling, i mostly use the mac mini these days. Does the job perfectly well. Has a meagre 2 gb ram but runs ultra fast and ultra smooth.

      Btw lets start a what windows PC/mac to buy thread for the community. Do tag me cammy if you plan on starting it.
