Default Sony Vaio LCD problem

Hello all,

I just acquired a Sony Vaio PCG-F520 saptop from a friend. It's nothing great at all (PIII 500, 64MB Ram) but it would be nice for using the internet on my couch. The reason he gave it to me was that the screen doesn't work. The neons come on but there is no picture. I've gotten a picture for a split second while moving the screen around, but haven't been able to do it again. The picture works when connected to an external monitor. Just wondering if anyone has any ideas? Any help would be appreciated.
