Sound to me like it's toast. You probably will be ahead to get a new one, rather than trying to have that one repaired (if you can find anybody to work on it!)

Vaio LCD problem

Periods.......Nice little items because they denote the End of a sentence.
See how this works?

"I have a vgn cs36gj, I was working with it, suddenly the LCD became pale black, I connected it to external monitor and it has a picture, sometimes after turning on for 30 minutes LCD start working normally, but after turning off and disconnecting power when I turn it on, it only shows a pale black picture, you know it is on but only black!"

Now you try it.........

"I have a vgn cs36gj. I was working with it, suddenly the LCD became pale black.
I connected it to external monitor and it has a picture."

Okay, I got that part.........

"sometimes after turning on for 30 minutes LCD start working normally, but after turning off and disconnecting power when I turn it on, it only shows a pale black picture, you know it is on but only black!"

Laptop LCD?
External monitor LCD?
Man on the moon LCD?

1) If the external monitor LCD goes 'pale black', the problem is the graphics chipset.
This I do not believe

2) If the laptop LCD goes pale black, this I believe.

Pajero 1989,too much smoke durong first start

Is it white,black or blue smoke?
If it's the org. engine it will has over 200,000 miles on it.

It's normal to has the valve stem seal/oil seal on the head to leak oil into the cyclinder.

The smoke you see is the motor oil drop from the seals. It land on the top of the cyclinders and it create black smoke at start up.

The inexpensive fix is to start using high mileage oil with seal conditioner.

This will help soften the rubber seals and help reduce internal oil leak.

The correct fix is to wait until it's time for a head gasket replacement and let the professional to service the head.

Complete head service is the only method to stop this internal oil drip problem.
I will monitor the oil and coolant level.
White smoke AFTER warm up is the first sign of blown headgasket.

This is general LCD monitor advice. I don't know your specific model. Your problem, however, is very common on many different monitors.

In 90% of cases, the problem is one or more failed electrolytic capacitors on the power supply board. They are a simple matter to replace, but require desoldering the old ones and soldering in new ones, as well as general electrical/electronic safety practices.

If what I've just said already makes sense to you, then you're probably qualified - go ahead and replace them. If I'm talking greek, then go find an electronics nerd - some goofy looking guy wielding a soldering gun should do.

AOC 19MVWK - no image or rainbow vertical lines

It seams like connection is bad. If it is black but light show that is on or in stand by than it is the cable from monitor to computer if monitor is totally off when it is black either the electrical connection is bad or the power plug is broken.

Monitor suddenly goes black

Is this monitor and LCD flat Panel? If so this is due to a bad power supply, an inverter board going bad or LCD backlight bulb blown. When the backlight goes bad it gets just enough power to start up, but when it is on for a long period of time it goes black because the bulb is not stable enough to hold the charge because it is going bad. These bulbs can be changed, but they also can be costly!
