Dear ...,

when switching on te laptop, does it make noises, does the fan run, the CD/DVD-drive
LED shows green light and the harddisk rattle little bit? - good for you if it does, as the system still boots up !

to check if the LCD screen is broke and not the graphics card malfunctioning:

hook it up to an external monitor (one usually used with desktop PCs)
when laptop is switched off, using the 3-pin input in the back or to the right side of your laptop, and make sure the external monitor's power cord is properly fused...

Now switch on the external monitor first and then your machine again, and wait for the laptop boot messages on the monitor!
see anything? if yes the laptop screen is broke and needs to be replaced.
If still the external monitor stays black the onboard graphics card is up in smoke and you're in big trouble then.

Good luck finding out!

I gotta a green screen


It is possible that you have a shorted green CRT, you can remove the front speaker cover, and you will fine a focus block, and if you turn down the green screen voltage, very slowly, the green should turn down. if not then the gun (CRT) will have to be replace, If it does turn down, then go into the menu and turn the color are the way down and that should give you a black and white picture. If it is not black and white. adjust the red, blue, and green screen voltages until you receive a good black and white picture. Turn slowly they are touchy, and if turn to high, you will get retrace lines and the TV will shut down.

Green semi-circle of lines on Samsung 55" HDTV (projection)


I believe i have the same problem myself. When my TV is on any of the Component Inputs without my DVD player turned on i usually get the normal green screen. But now that is a dip in the green at the top of the screen from the top left to almost the top right and black pushing down on the dip. Almost like a green curtain was sagging at the top and you can see the black behind it. It does this on every input and distorts every picture you see. The distorted picture has all the green slightly off from where the rest of the picture is and where the dip at the top of the screen is there is somtimes purple instead of black.

I know the basics of how the picture gets onto the screen and its my guess that the Green "gun" for lack of a better term and somhow come loose, or been missaligned to a great extent. I would love to find an answer to this problem, and anyones best guess as to how much a repair man will charge, just so i know the ballpark.

Problems with green arching lines


yes there is a small black box with 6 controls on it, take off the bottom front of the tv, behind that you should find a black piece of plastic you can remove by taking out 2 more screws. the black box should be in the upper rhs.now i don't remember if the top 3 are the screen controls or the focus controls. the rows should be labled, you are looking for the screen control row. the green control is the middle one. you can try turning down the control till you no longer see the green lines. try adjusting in a dark room, it will be easier to see the lines & when they are gone. if you problem is not solved by trying this, then i agree with your tech & the green tube is bad. good luck.
