    I have the same problem. Intermittent display on the LCD. I took the side panel off the printer and discovered it was a fault inside the ribbon cable connecting the LCD to the printer, probably caused by bending the cable each time the LCD panel is raised and lowered. The cable is built into the LCD unit, so does not appear to be possible to replace the cable. Looks like a design fault.

You need to check firstly that the LCD connections are still connected correctly inside the printer and then you can enter service mode on the printer and run an LCD test. To open printer and run test you will need a service manual:

What do I need to do to fix a blank screen on a whirlpool built in oven?


Often the Whirlpool built in ovens have a control board failure which causes the screen to go blank. May be intermittent and may be accompanied by an E6 F2 failure code on the display (before it blanks out). We rebuild a lot of control boards for this problem. For example see:

I've seen this problem time and time again. Replacing the inverter fixed it every time. HOWEVER it could always be the CCFL backlight as well. Both fortunately are VERY inexpensive. Changing the inverter is easy but the CCFL will be a little harder. Take your time and remember how to put it all back together and you'll save that $100. I'm sure it's either of those two that's causing the backlight issues. NO NEED to change the entire LCD.

Screen went blank


cslkkent, Your description of problem fits the common "black" or "blank n black" lcd screen symptom. Because 98 percent of all desktop cold cathode fluorescent lamp back-lit lcd monitors use the same basic lighting technology, it will be in your best interest to view some video clips of CCFL back-lit lcd monitor repair on YOUTUBE just for info on typical causes of black or blank n black screen symptoms and how some owners do repair on the cheap! Yes, your unit may have BAD capacitors on the power supply printed circuit board or one "thermally intermittant" component solder joint which will need to be resoldered. Just do some research first. Read fixya profiles of "buddymc" , "budmrtn" and my own files. Good luck on your quest. 12fixlouie

Good day sir/ma'am, the problem with your phone sound can be that the driver speaker(earpiece) is defective or it may opened wiring/unsoldered to the driver. also check the volume or mute. 2. the display problem may be caused by intermittent contact problem or the display lcd is lose. you may have to dismantle it and look for these things and fix it. Hate to say it but you may need to bring it to a cellphone technician. Hope this may help. thanks

Usually it is the lcd inverter going bad...if you do a search for your model # and lcd inverter and see if you can find any...also you will be able to very faintly see what is on the screen althought it looks black...if that doesn't work then i may be the backlight in the lcd and a new screen may be needed.
Hope this helps

Strange, intermittent problems with the EOS Digital Rebels can be caused by a defective shutter release switch. We charge about $85 to replace it.

Mag lcd question


Hey CBernard84,

While a blank screen could be caused by a controller, it could also be caused by something simple like the settings on the controller.

Question: When you boot up, does the screen show the Power On Self Test then go blank? If yes, the screen refresh rate is most likely set too high.

Comment me back, if this is the case. I can walk you through the procedure.
Hope this helps,
Mike

Samsung s860 digital camera turns on and then goes to blank screen and will do nothing else, to turn off it requires battery removal. same story with new batteries.


Dear customer

thanks for ur inquiry for ur product

If the LCD screen is blank or black when you have your camera in the Camera or Play mode, the camera may need service. To determine if this is the case, follow these steps:

1. Press the Menu button to see if the LCD screen can display the OSD (On Screen Display). 2. Set your camera to Play mode, and then see if the LCD screen displays a picture. 3. To eliminate the possibility of a user setting causing the problem, put the unit into Auto mode by rotating the dial on the units exterior to Auto Mode. Note: The word "Auto" appears on the screen when this mode is activated. 4. If putting the camera into Auto mode does not resolve the problem, test the unit in Play mode. If the unit operates normally in Play mode, but the screen in Camera mode is blank, your camera requires service which you can arrange by Creating a Service Ticket below. Note: Because your camera has an automatic LCD display shutdown feature, its normal for the LCD to stop displaying when the camera has been on for along period of time. This feature prolongs battery life.

urs sincerely
