HP Pavilion laptop screen has gone black/blank

HP Pavilion laptop screen has gone black screen/blank. If you tilt the screen, you can see the display is there and everything is working properly. The only way to get the screen to light up again is to press on the bottom of the screen. Does this mean something is loose? How would you suggest I fix this? Thanks in advance.

If you mean that when you put pressure on the bottom of the screen it lights up like it is supposed to, there might be a loose connection in the LCD power converter, which is located just under the bottom of the screen. If it was "broken", then you would have no effect when you push.
Before replacing the screen, I would take it apart and check the connections. It will be obvious where the power converter is. All the rest of the enclosure is just the LCD screen.
What you are missing is a constant connection to the florescent backlight.

You can either use an external monitor for working with the laptop or talk to HP for replacement.

The best option is to use external monitor to backup data before sending it to replacement.

Good luck

The screen went blank, after nine of ten years. I am using an extension screen, but this pretty well stops the portability of this unit.

Take the laptop into a dark room.. I.E. no lights at all, pitch black.. Then see if you can see anything on the screen.. I tell my customers to take it into the bathroom and shut the door.. If you can see something on the display then it is the backlight inverter that is out and needs to be replaced. If at that point you still cannot see anything then you would be looking at replacing the screen in it as it has gone bad.

My HP Pavilion G6 laptop screen turns on and then goes blank (black)

When the screen turns on does it show anything or does it turn on and go to black?

If it goes to straight black it could be two things typically.
1. The LCD screen is having an issue. Connection cable / LCD screen itself.
2. The Graphics Card has gone out.

Sounds like your display has completely gone out. If your device is under warranty, you should try to contact HP as soon as possible and request that your device be repaired.
You could try swiveling the display around or tilting the laptop at unusual angles--if there's a loose wire or connection, the display might flicker on.

Hi, I have an HP Pavilion DV7 laptop. When I turn on the computer everything seems to be working but the screen is blank. Blank meaning black and/or colorless without light. Thanks!

Borrow a monitor and plug it into the side of the notebook to verify that the computer still works. If it does then the screen has gone out.
