Hey, I've had some problems with this myself - but from not putting the plug back on right. First you're going to want to pull up, or print out the manual for detailed help.

But here's what you need to check:

Power down your laptop, unplug it, remove the battery, all that jazz. When you remove the battery there will be a bunch of silver screws. There should be 6 screws on one side, three on the other.

On the side with six screws, remove the four that are directly under where the battery was. (Those two that are slightly risen from the row don't need to be removed.

Once those are removed, open the lid and you can carefully pop off the plastic cover which has the power button, quickplay, and media control buttons.

Once that is removed, there will be a silver rectangle to the right of where the power button is, and there should be a small black tape attached, that is the plug. Make sure it is secured all the way, and that should fix it.

Failing Inverter An inverter, typically found inside a laptop computer, consists of a small board, which has impregnated electronic circuits stamped on it. Inverters look like thin boards about the of two sticks of chewing gum. The inverter and its bulb control the intensity of the liquid crystal display, which lights the screen monitor. The computer can control the output voltage of the inverter and either lighten or darken the screen. A special type of inverter can adjust the brightness of the screen by using an internal sensor to judge the room brightness, and then adjust the screen accordingly. Failing inverters give off some specific warning signs, which can be recognized by observing different screen characteristics.

Short Intermittent Display Upon turning on the laptop, the screen flashes on in the normal mode for a short period and then blinks to black. A very faint image appears in a dark background, which will be very hard to see almost invisible. After shutting off the laptop and restarting, the same mode occurs, where the screen appears normal for a few seconds then fades to black. This condition points to a failed inverter. To confirm this, plug in an operational external monitor; if the external monitor functions, the inverter has failed. b> Total Blackout with Ghost image b> The laptop turns on, as indicated by the power supply button, but the screen comes up black. The screen comes up black after restart. You might be able to detect a very dim or ghost-like image on the monitor. When you plug in a known functioning external monitor, the external monitor operates normally. This mode of display indicates a failed inverter. b> Long Term Periodic Operation b> With this failure mode, the laptop screen illuminates normally upon start-up and remains that way after several minutes, hours or even days, until it goes very dark again. Brightness controls or restoration attempts do not work. Most often, the screen will function normally with a computer restart, but will eventually return to black. Faint ghost images might appear, as seen in the total blackout mode. b> Dark With Color Variation b> Upon computer start-up, the monitor shows black or dark gray, accompanied by very faint images. The screen might have an intermittent color change, or remain on with a non-standard color variation, like pink or red. b> Auto Control Switch b> If the screen appears black, with no faint or ghost images, look for the lid switch near the back hinge. The switch, when depressed with a closed lid, shuts off the computer and monitor functions. Sometimes the switch becomes stuck in the closed position, disallowing the computer and monitor to turn on when opened. Pushing the switch manually several times can often free it up. If the switch tab has broken or jammed inside the case, it needs replacing. b> Loose Connection In this mode, the display looks normal upon start-up, but tapping the side case of the computer turns the screen black. More tapping results in the screen functioning normally then cutting out again. This condition points to a loose wire connection from the inverter to the LCD backlight lamp, or the video cable. The connectors can be accessed by removing the monitor bezel screws and pulling the plastic retainer off. Both connectors can be cleaned and refitted.

Auto adjust flashes all time

davidfoun435, Possible that unit's internal power supply is about to fail! Go here first and do some reading: Remember this! Your cold cathode fluorescent lamp, back-lit, lcd monitor isn't any different than any other brand in it's basic engineering design and mode of operation, and when "strange stuff" appears on the screen the first thing to investigate is the "switch-mode-power-supply"

Got an alpine cda 9855 the screen keeps goin black but if you touch the button it comes back on it has like a 5 sec delay then it goes black but still plays any help

Blackout Display Mode: When the Blackout mode is activated, the display turns off to reduce power consumption. The additional power made available by turning off the display helps enhance sound quality. If a button is pressed during the Blackout mode, the display will illuminate for 5 seconds before blacking out again. Blackout Mode On and Off (CDA-9855 only) When Blackout mode is turned on, the display will turn off to reduce power consumption. This additional power enhances the sound quality. Press and hold FUNC. for at least 2 seconds to activate the blackout mode. The display will turn off. If any button on the unit is pressed during the blackout mode, the function will be displayed for 5 seconds to show the operation before returning to Blackout mode. To cancel Blackout mode, press and hold FUNC. for at least 2 seconds.
Copied from the alpine user manual..
Hope this helps

The display on myy HP dv1000 laptop went black.

Sounds like its either going to be a bad display or the inverter underneath the display is not providing enough power to the display to light up properly. Only way to troubleshoot it is to swap out the inverter and/or the inverter to designate the exact problem.
