Re: Half the screen is dark

Sounds like half your backlight is not functioning. The only thing I suggest is to call the manufacturer thats listed in your user manual and see what they think it will cost to repair unless its still in warrantee. There are no user serviceable parts inside of this unit so i dont think it would be a good Idea for you to attemt to take it apart as it may be a system to dissasembly and you make tear or break on of the small flex cables. Good luck

Why do i have a white screen on d1210 portable dvd player

That will be the screen driver chip faulty or even the luminance set too high. Try turning the brightness down and if there's a dark picture it's the chip, if not maybe even the flexi strip from the base to screen.

Screen does not lighy

If you look very closely, is there an extremely dark picture, or a solid black screen? If it's an extremely dark picture, you just need a new backlight. If it's a black screen, you either have a bad connection (broken, shorted or unplugged cable), or need a new LCD. Let me know, and we'll go from there.

I have a Protron LCD 26" TV model#LT26CIPI...The tv was working great turned it off on night and in the morning turned it back on to sound but no picture just a Black screen...when you change channels

Since its a LCD take a flashlight and have the room as dark as possible and with the light look to see if a very very faint image of the picture can be seen or not---many of these sets use a "back light" for the brightness and if that's not on.......

GPX PDL705---Picture very dark

Sounds like the back lighting of the LCD screen is faulty. Is it a new unit - take it back. You might try the brightness and contrast controls and turn them up. If that doesn't help it needs to be repaired.

Audio..Black Screen?

Either the backlight tube or the board that drives is broken, probably the tube - it's a cold cathode fluorescent, usually along the top or bottom of the screen. It may be fixable, but probably only worth it
if you DIY and can get replacement cheap enough. They can be a real pain to get to, usually cheaper to get a new player.

You might need to adjust the settings by pressing the LCD button then using the up/down/left/right arrows on the player or remote to change color or brightness. If this doesnt work, your screen might be shot. There isn't much you can do if thats the case.
