Why does the screen keep going white?

If my computer is not at the right angle or is jostled just a little bit the screen freezes up and fades to white or with a bunch of lines and I have to pinch the edges of the screen and adjust it until it unfreezes and I have to release it very very slowly or else it messes up again. What is wrong with this thing?!

From your brief diagnoses, it 'sounds' like the Video Cable is loose at the back of the LCD screen.

But it (Video Cable) could also be loose on the motherboard side, and/or the Video Cable is damaged.

Only one way to know; Open this baby up, and take a look.

If you post the laptop manufacturer name, and model number, I may be able to post a link to a free Service Manual, and perhaps a pictorial disassembly guide.

This way I can SHOW you how to fully diagnose the problem, and repair it.

This info is on the bottom of the laptop, in a sticker, or white Service Tag.
(For HP it is in a white Service Tag. P/N = Product Number. This is the info I need)

Post back in a Comment.

Bottom Half of Laptop Screen quickly fades to white!


1. you can replace it with a new screen. (expensive) 2. have a technician to repair the board of the screen, the cable, the IC's, etc. (save you money but the length of repair is very long. maybe it will take a week or two.)
your choice.

Screen fades to white, everything freezes, then returns to normal


My first thought is a video inverter.

Install an external monitor and see if the problem persists.

If it doesn't then it is the LCD on the laptop.

Good luck

Korg Triton Keyboard touch screen fades when viewed directly overhead but is more nomal when viewed at extreme angle. This was not always the case


there is a little knob on the back of the triton to change the screen brightness. sometimes when you have had it on for a long time you will notice the screen being a little lighter, just adjust with the knob and it should fix that.

Wont start up right


These are the most common methods for recovering Sandisk's Sansa Mp3 Players. I have been almost universally successful in recovering Sansa players using one or a combination of these methods. These methods do not work if you are having synchronization or music format issues - they are for recovering a player that will not power up, freezes, flashes, is not recognized by the computer, and a host of other issues.

Reset the Sansa Player first. On most models, restart is done by holding the power button in for 15 seconds or longer. Check your specific manual to be sure. The manuals are available from the Sansa website if they have been misplaced.
Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/DriverDownload/driverList.asp
If these fail, then:
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
If you get the problem where MTP Device keeps popping up continuously, uninstall the “MTP Device” by going to Start à Control Panel àSystem à Hardware à Device Manager (you computer may vary slightly, depending on Windows Version).
You may have to restart your computer after each of these methods to get them to work properly. Disconnect your Sansa player BEFORE shutting down your computer.

Faded Picture


I would have to say it does sound like the CRT is reaching its end. The thing that points this out that the picture gradually gets a little bit better as it warms up. It most likely isn't worth the cost to fix it.
