Question about Toshiba Satellite M100 Notebook

1 Answer

White screen my laptop screen just turns white when i turn it on. i can hear everything fine, its just the screen. a week ago it was black with a faint picture ( just the backlight wasnt on), but now its a whitish/grey color. Last time the backlight failed i took it into get fixed and they replaced the converter and the main cord leading into the screen, but i noticed 2 weeks later the screen began to flicker at times, and when i took it into them the second time, when it turned black, they said the screen must be faulty and its going to cost 800 dollars to replace it. This doesnt seem right though, ive only had the laptop for nearly 2 yrs. please help. the model is M100

    My Dell Latitude 500/600 has the same problem with a white screen. I plug another monitor into it and everything is fine. One of the screen brackts broke and it took some time to get another one from Japen. Could I have caused the Flex Cable to break? I checked all the connections of the cable and eerything is ok

The LCD display in a laptop connect to the screen via a ribbon like cable which is not very secure.

It can happen that over time that the ribbon cable become dislodged by slightly rough handling or vibrations etc. the reasons are infinite, but we arent worried about the why but the how :)

it is quite possible the display is faulty, but if you are brave place the laptopn on a rubber mat of some sort ( car floor mat ??? ), on a table, place a bright lamp close by and open the casing on the bottom first, then turn it and remove the keyboard, look for a ribbon cable coming from the screen that inserts onto the main board. it should be easy to see.

If you arent prepared for this, ask someone you know to do this for you... the cable simply pushes into the slot where it belongs,

this abov e is at your own risk though, be careful of static since this could damage the components ( hence the rubber mat )....

WHITE SCREEN ON SAMSUNG LAPTOP


Prior to the Windows splash screen do you see graphical issues ( black background, white writing, or bios splash screen) if you don't then the problem is with windows and will need to be reinstalled. Samsung ship laptops with a windows cd and is a fairly basic wizard. If you don't know how to do this google is full of guides. If you however see graphical problems right from turning the laptop on then there is likely to be a hardware fault straight from the factory. Contact Samsung and they will repair / replace the laptop through warranty. I have seen several Samsung laptops brand new from the box do this and It turned out to be a hardware issue and was replaced on warranty. Good luck.

We purchased the Hunter Ceiling fan over a year ago and it has worked fine up until a couple of weeks ago. When we turn on the light it just continuously blinks on and off.


there is a watt governor, or black box for the lights to cut down on wattage or energy use. you can remove the black box for the lighting, and wire it directly to the main wires. white wire to white wire, and black wire to red wire. black and red are always a hot wire and white is a neutral wire. the part number on black box should be 98480-02. this should stop the lights from blinking. have a good day !

Look in System Preferences for Universal Access, there is a Display option which says Black on White(the normal setting) and White on Black (the setting that has been enabled).

There is a keyboard short cut to change the setting, it involves pressing four keys - Apple, Option, ^ and 8.
