I have a Provies PL456s and when mw wife went up to it it went grey. It now has a static line on the right side 2inches out from top to bottom. I tried poweroff with both the monitor and cpu. I unhooked the monitor too. The contrast/brightness stuff still shoe up but that's all. Not even getting a nosignal msg.

After initially reading your question and the responses I was tempted to agree with everyone that you had a dead monitor on your hands. BUT, you said that the monitor's menu options are showing up. Sometimes when I plug my a monitor into my macbook pro and the connection is loose, the image is all kinds of messed up. I suggest checking the cable's connections on both ends to make sure they are nice and tight.

If you are still having issues, try another cable (around $5 at radioshack but cheaper than a monitor) and dont let your wife near it.


Happy Holidays!

You can also try a hard reset: Unplug monitor from AC mains and remove all cables from monitor. Wait about 30 minutes and replug to AC power and redo the cabling. Switch on the monitor and see if it works..if this did not work then connect the monitor to different computer and check it ..if still as the problem then there is hardware problem with the monitor ..

Good luck....

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, it would seem that the main board of the monitor is faulty. We can probably rule out the power supply, inverter and/or the backlights.

One way to verify if it is the LCD monitor is to try another monitor on the computer or try the Proview PL456s on another PC.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

How to Take Apart Your Xbox 360?


1. Insert your index and middle finger into the memory slot holes, place your thumbs on the bottom of the Xbox (for leverage), and pull the face plate off with a steady force. It should come right off. 2. Break the Microsoft seal off. (Note that this will void your warranty.) 3. Now, flip the Xbox on its side and take a close look at the holes located on the top and bottom of each side. If you look closely, you can see that some of the holes are filled in. This is because the filled-in holes are keeping the grey plastic pieces on the top and bottom of the Xbox in place. 4. To remove the top and bottom grey pieces, use a small pointed object. Locate a grey plastic tab by peering into the holes, then use your pointed object to carefully push down and lever out the grey top/bottom cover. Both pieces have three tabs/clips per side, with a total of six per piece. To remove the top grey piece, you will have to remove the rubber pad. This is the only rubber pad you will have to remove. 5. With the grey pieces removed, take a close look at the back side of the Xbox. On the right and left side there are small notches that will require closer inspection. You again will need a small screw driver or narrow probe. 6. Using the probe, start on the left side (near power plug socket) and push the catch a bit into the Xbox until it clicks, then use a screw driver to keep the two sides apart. Once the left side is done, start on the right side and do the same thing to the rest of the catches. 7. Once they are all separated, the bottom of the Xbox will lift away. At this point slide it around to the front side and undo the four catches, keeping the case together. 8. Now grab your Torx driver set. You can use a T10 and T8 to do the job. You do not need a T12. 9. Unscrew the six T10 black screws, then use the T10 to unscrew all the silver screws. Finally, unscrew the black screws with your T8 driver . 10. Carefully flip the Xbox back over and remove the DVD button arm assembly to keep it out of your way. You just need to pry it off the black plastic guide. 11. Next, remove the top cover. Watch the DVD button latch. 12. Disconnect the SATA connector and power connector from the DVD drive and lift it out of the case. 13. To remove the white plastic air guide, locate the notch on the top outward side, insert your probe/small screw driver, and leverage the air guide out. It should lift straight out very smoothly. 14. Disconnect the power for the cooling fans. Now, use your probe/screw driver to pry the fan catches out from the metal guard. This will allow you to remove the fan device from the Xbox case. 15. Look at the front of the Xbox on the RF module, and remove the white plastic power button. It is held in place by a clip on the top and bottom. 16. Remove the three screws from the front circuit board (RF module). 17. Once the screws are removed, you will be able to slide the front circuit board off the Xbox with a slight pull. Notice that it is connected on the lower left side. You should now be able to pull the entire circuit board right out of the case with relative ease. Be careful not to touch any exposed circuits. 18. The next step is to carefully lift the motherboard out of the Xbox case. With the motherboard removed, flip it over and locate the two X connectors on the bottom. These are what hold the heat sinks on the processor. You can remove this; just be careful. It takes a little bit of force, which could destroy your Xbox if not applied properly.

Dell n5050 grey static screen


Sounds like the GPU has over heated and is causing video driver issues. Usually the GPU needs re balling as the solder has melted underneath the BGA chip. A specialized repair is required. Take a look on flea bay for prices.

Black screen with grey lines on the right side


It looks like your panel in the tv may have gone out. Is the tv within warranty? If it is the panel and not the video card, it probably is beyond repair and has to be disposed of. Most major brands don't have extra panels available, and if they do, it would be likely to be more than the tv is worth. Customer support will usually have you take it to an asc within 45 miles of you and then have you take it back and have it picked up if it is the panel{How their in warranty service works} If out of warranty, U are on your own.

LG RZ-26LZ50 LCD Television-Solid Black line down the right had side of the screen


It's the driver tabs that operate that section of the panel. To have them repaired/replaced can be very expensive and is normally just replaced completely as a whole panel (at least while under warranty). If it is out of warranty, then get a few quotes over the phone. This will help dramatically when you explain to your wife that you are about ot go shopping to buy a new TV.

I find things like "Have I told you how good you look today" help when this process is taking place.

Sorry for the bad news.
