    Hi everyone. Im new here and was wondering on, how do i get the screen back, as I've just changed the screen ribbon on toshiba c660 as my old ribbon had broken wires. Everything works and can hear the fan etc but no screen. I noticed though that if i shine a light on the screen i can see the background. Im not computer minded but need help. Thanks

    Hi mw_86 and welcome to TSG.

    Have you tried an external Monitor ? I would do that first if possible and if it's display is good carry on below.

    With those symptoms if that model has an Inverter I would try switching it with a known working one.
    You should find some on Ebay. (I've had good luck even with used ones).

    If it does have an Inverter it could be the backlight instead but that's usually much more difficult to replace.

    If it's an LED model (ie no Inverter or Backlight) I would guess either the LEDs have failed or they aren't getting power from the motherboard.
