Hello,

I have a sony laptop. When I turn the computer on the screen light comes on for just a second or two in a pink color. Then the screen becomes so dim I can barely see what is on it. It is not blank. I can see it dimly. I have used the key to lighten the screen but that does not seem to do anything. Does anyone know what the problem could be? Just the light maybe? I had someone tell me it could be the Mother Board. But would I even be able to see anything if it was something serious? Will this be costly to fix ?

Thank you. Any help is appreciated.

Hello,

i think its the ribbon that connects your screen to your motherboard!
I will advise you to take it to a technician to get it repaired!

Thank you, be.st55 2

Hey, im no computer dude but I had the same problem as well... what I did was go on sony's website and just put in ur model number and search drivers. installed the latest drivers and not only did fn/brightness key work but overall system was faster and smootherrrr. btw make sure u choose it for either vista or windowss

No guys, I have the same problem, I did my research about it, the problem is the light bulb inside the monitor, needs to be replace, in order to be replaced take ur lapto to the sony store and pay 100.00usd to have them ship to their repair center.
I notice my computer screen having a small black spot in the lower right hand corner of the monitor for a while, then eventually the whole screen became black, but still I was able to see the screen then the whole screen became black.
I do use the computer using a HDMI1 cable thru my tv that will sove ur problem untill u get it fix

Hello, I wanted to share my experience regarding this topic.

A while ago, my screen too turned its color to pink but not flat out. It becomes dim pink. Unfortunately, I did not get a screen shot of it. I did my research as well. And I ended up here at kioskea forums to look for an answer. I focused on this thread:

http://ccm.net/forum/affich-78673-laptop-screen-pink-out

and centered my trial and error to the "video card problem" that I have read. I almost opened all the hardware of my laptop.

Btw, Sony Vaio Fit 15A is the model of my laptop.

Until I turned at the flip screen and I saw that there are screws in there and tried to open it up.

<<I'm actually trying to insert a picture here but it's not processing. :P>>


Actually, I can't open it wholly. But it seems like there's something about the video card in there perhaps. Im no techie much.

So there, what I did was I lightly pressed that part. Note that it was slightly open coz I disengaged all the screws in it. And then, my screen turned back to normal.

I hope my post will help for those who has the same problem and doing their research as well.

Thanks kioskea. :)
