Hi eutrucker,

Please let us know which Toshiba model exactly & whether still under warranty or not.

It sound like the back light that's got intermittent connection

PS you could try pressing the little pin that the lid Presses in when you close the computer case, to see if you have a faulty switch

its a satellite 1800-921, warranty has finished, if i press the pin and release it comes back on , but not totally blank you always see a siluete in the background

I would think it's the back light that's at fault, you need a laptop repairer
