No image Just happened! Turned on proj. and laptop, but no picture . I tried doing the function button and F8 but no good. I tried rebooting, no go. When I picked it up, it seemed hotter on the bottom than I recall. It's been a few weeks. Any idea?

    Oh my, of course I checked the connection and the user manual. This is why I'm posting this question to you! Any one else have a solution?

    The warning light did not go on , so if there is still a light projecting, would the bulb be bad? I had already checked the filter and it was clean, as I clean it regularly. Any ideas?

First lets determine whether the projector is capable of producing a picture.

1) If you hit the menu button, do you see a menu on the screen? If not, then the problem is inside the projector.

2) You state that you see light. That would indicate that the lamp has fired and should be good.

3) Is there a shutter button? Some projectors allow you to do a quick "fade to black" by closing a shutter. Check for this.

4) If you do see a menu, run thru each of the input possibilities. If you have selected the wrong input mode, there will be no picture.

Please update this with what you find and we'll continue from there.

Thanks,
Dan

Check to see if your cable has any bent or broken pins, happened to me once, all I had to do is carefully unbend the pin with pliers (ultimately, use another cable). Also, check if it hasn't burnt out already, too much heat can ruin it.

Is the fans working properly cause if it overhead from not ventilation it can cause something similar to this. also projector lamps only last any from 700 hours to 1000 hours depending in the brand.

Monitor remains black when computer is turned on (images there but black). happened before, hit Function/F8 (crt/lcd). would turn back on. now it doesn't. argh.


Hello,

If you barely see images on screen, try to use function key and Up arrow key together to increase the brightness.

If not working, then the backlight bulb of LCD is failed and need to replace.

I have a Dell D600. It starts up to boot page and after 3-5 seconds the picture disappears but the laptop is still running. The indicator light near the power button with a 9 on it stays lit.


I have a similar problem currently. Boot and try pressing Fn+Up arrow repeatedly to raise brightness. Then flick the little button right above your volume control that tells the laptop youve closed it. If you see the screen flicker on/off then its the button. Otherwise reboot and try shining a light at the screen from different angles and see if you can see dark images. If you can see windows boot up but dark, then it is almost certainly your LCDs backlight. If you can't see dark images, next try using the VGA output plug at the back of your laptop to connect to a different monitor. Within less than 1 minute you should see the image on the external screen. If not, try pressing Fn+F8 a few times to toggle the output. If still no picture on the external screen your video card might be fried. If you do get a picture on the external with or without seeing dark images on the laptop, then it is a problem with either the LCD screen, it's inverter, or the screens flex cable. Check Dell support for your systems original parts list HERE. You will need your laptops Service Tag number, which is on a sticker on the bottom of your laptop.

Hope this helps, Good luck.

I think as per your question this seems to display resolution problem happens some time with games.

For this follow these steps
1. Switch on the Laptop
2. When you get screen before use F8 function keys for few seconds until you got a list of options.
3. Then select "Safe Mode"
4. After entering into safe mode then reset the default display settings to 800by600 and apply.
5. Restart the system.

Hope this information is useful

Laptop crash after inserting blank disk


do not worry at all. take out the cd and reboot in safe mode by pressing F8 at bootup. Then you can restore your laptop to an earlier date from Start->All progs->Accessories->System->restore. reboot normal this time.

Regarding sound problems in my laptop


Try Fn/F8 (function/F8). It turns the sound on/off.

If that doesn't work, try rebooting 3 times.
Lately, Windows Service Pack updates have been breaking compatibly with Compaq sound drivers.
It happened twice to me with Vista. It takes a couple of reboots before Windows gets the drivers downloaded?/installed properly.
