SOURCE: Connecting a sony Vaio vgn-fe570g laptop to a Samsung Monitor

There is an issue with the vga port on 2006 - 2007 sony vaio laptops. It doesn't push enough power to samsung lcds. There are all sorts of complicated solutions suggested by all sorts of people. Don't waste your time. Get yourself a connection cable with gold contacts and you'll be straight. It costs approx. $33.99. I got this one and it works fine (and I have a weak-*** TZ):

1) Check your laptop works by hooking up an ancillary screen to the VGA port on the back.

2) Assuming that's OK, your screen is either broken or a ribbon connector has become detached, either way you have to dismantle your laptop.

3) Check the screen ribbon connectors are properly connected to both your motherboard and the screen, if its been jolted loose, reconnecting should be the repair. Give yourself plenty of room to work in.

4) Then its onto replacing the screen, fairly straight forward if you're practically minded. But to get an idea, log onto "youtube" and search for screen replacement video's. There are quite a few, watch at least 2 or 3 to get an idea of what you're up to.

5) Buy a generic replacement, its likely to be a lot cheaper than a Sony specific part, check on ebay and other online shops to get an idea of the price.

6) Before you buy, ensure its compatible with your laptop.

The screen is white >>>


Your inverter board is OK otherwise you will not get any light on the screen, there is only one inverter board, Check the flat ribbon cable connected to the LCD panel (locate behind the LCD panel), when this connector comes off you will get white screen.

Screen is white


You could have a video controller problem or a LCD screen problem, what you are seeing is the backlighting but no video information.
To check if you have a video problem, connect an external monitor to your laptop and bootup your laptop, if you see Windows booting up the external monitor then the video controller is OK, and your problem is the LCD screen or the video cable connection on the motherboard (may need reseating).
If you cannot fix the LCD screen then use your laptop with an external monitor.

Toshiba screen goes blank when it is opened too far


Sounds like a problem with the ribbon for the screen being either having a loose connection or getting nipped. Pretty common on laptops because the ribbon runs along by the hinges on the base and then up to the screen.

Hopefully you will be able to access the ribbon on your model by removing the plastic bezel which lies just above the keyboard. The ribbons I have seen are about 1/2 inch wide and as I said connect on the base and the screen. The connection just pushes in. If its loose at the connection on the base then obviously push the connection fully home. If it's getting nipped then reseat it so that it does not get caught. ***NOTE*** a problem could arise if the ribbon has actually been damaged from being nipped - opening the laptop could cause it more damage and then you could lose the screen until you replace with a new ribbon. These can normally be purchased on places like Ebay and don't cost an arm and a leg.

If this helps, I'd appreciate feedback so other people can use this as a solution. Thanks
