    I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro 4200 laptop which has a very pale screen. It
    is almost unreadable. The machine is otherwise very good, fast enough and
    powerful enough for carting around the bush for audio recording. A fair bit
    of Googling leads me to believe that the screen itself is probably O.K. and
    the problem is with the "inverter" and/or the inverter's connections. A
    reassuring number of forum posts claim the a bit of jiggling has fixed a
    similar problem. Anyone have any clues? I am adept enough to follow
    instructions to pry it all open and probably to put it back together again.

    Thats the reason I avoid Toshibas, a real dearth of proper maintenance manuals for stuff like that.

    if you have a little coin, pension it off, and get a cheap netbook:
    just about giving them away these days.

    if the Toshiba has a vga output, you can always make use of it
    somewhere, with an external cheap VGA monitor.

    Cheers Don...
