Need help with my screen. HP Pavilion G6

My screen hasn't working properly the past few weeks, the screen would go black if it wasn't tilted in the right position, yesterday the screen wouldn't light up at all no matter what position the lid was at, I can still see the display if i shine a flashlight on the screen. My laptop is a HP Pavilion G6-2240sa. Any help on what the problem is or what I can do to fix it would be appreciated, thanks.

Hi dreamseller, welcome to the HP Forums. There are many causes for low brightness. My main concern would be the physical component of having to tilt it in just the right way to get a display at all. This would seem like there is a short in the cable internally, or an issue with the LCD itself. Regardless, since there are many causes, I have provided many documents, one of which may hopefully recitify and remove the need to hold a flashlight to see what you are doing.

I hope this helps. Let me know how it turns out.
