Bad wire braid from cicuit to screen halfway open makes contact and screen comes on. These portable unit made by off brand companies can be hard to find parts for. But it could also be where the braid connects on either ends is slightly out of place. If you are handy with electronic you could disassemble the unit and check. or replace the braid but there is voltage, and many delicate parts. But its not impossible.

Half screen is blank 42lg20 or 42lg50 when

This is likely to be the T-con board. If the entire screen glows but you have no picture on the second half of the screen then it is the main board, not the backlight inverter. If the screen is half picture and half gray it is the T-con board.

Replacement of one of the above will fix the issue.

Please rate if this helped :)

Have HP slimline series. Came back from a break.

Try another monitor on it to verify it is the video card that has gone bad. If it does not work with another monitor then that is the likely culprit.

When you put in a blue ray movie the screen goes blank

Search the official playstation website for the latest update and download it to your desktop
Move the file from your desktop to an usb stick or flash card or whatever.
Plug it in your ps3 and update (Info on how to do that should be on the official PS website.)

Are you referring to the black bars that show above and below the movie? That's normal, it's called widescreen aspect ratio.

If you don't like that, you want to buy/rent fullscreen movies.

Widescreen is 6:9, fullscreen is 4:3. (Square versus rectangle)
