No video on screen

Whenever you run into a situation where you have no video, it can be frustrating cause it can be a number of reasons why its happening.

The most common cause of no video is that dust or dirt gets in the memory slots, sometimes you may not even see it.

The best way to handle this is to take the memory out of the slot. Take a can of air and blow some on the contacts of the memory and also blow some of the air into the slot as well.

This will ensure that contacts on the memory are clean and also it will make sure that the contacts in the memory slot are clean as well.

Then put the memory back into the slot, make sure it snaps back into place and then turn on the computer and you should have video again, this usually solves at least 80% of the problems with no video.

tv continually changes from video 1 to video 2 to video 3 etc... sometimes get black screen as well + menu items. Based on a suggestion, I removed the batteries from the remote but that does not help. This is very frustrating since this is the second time in 5 months that this has happened.


It sounds like a switch problem inside the TV if you have already tried removing the remote batts. Try replacing the switches behind the push buttons on the front of the TV. Also, if glass cleaner or some other foreign substance has run down the front of the screen and into the set, this can cause switches to short out and cause this problem. The part number for the switches is 23145227. Thanks for using fixya.

PC freezes when I open a video file...............


The reason(s) you may experience computer freezes, could be software related or hardware related; perhaps it's a combination of both.


1.- Use another program to run the video and see what happen
2.- Uninstall innecesary software. Those can be creating conflicts.
3.- Add more memory
4.- Replace the video card
