Question about Toshiba Satellite R15-829 Tablet PC

1 Answer

Blank Screen Aloha, I am having a problem with my Toshiba Satellite R-15. I was on it the other night when the screen went blank and it was was still running. I thought the battery or the connection was the problem,so I turned the power off and the laptop would boot up and still no monitor. I did turn the screen so it was on tablet mode,when this all happened and the screen was on for about a minute or so thats when it went blank(do not know if that makes a difference or not) Do you have any suggestions on what to do? I do not have a reference manual to help troubleshoot. Mahalos Willy J

Re: Blank Screen

The bad thing about this is that it could be a software related issue or a hardware issue. If you're willing, you can disassemble the unit and check for a damaged or loose connector to the monitor. If there doesn't appear to be any issues there it may well be that the screen has gone bad or there is something wrong with the driver/setting on the unit itself that is causing the screen to saty off. I'd move forward with the hardware issue first though.

My Kindle went blank with almost a white screen tho fully charged and now wont turn on at all. Have followed Amazon's suggestions but nothing works. Can you help?

Chances are your screen went defunct. Or it could be a problem with some other piece of hardware. You can try using the USB cord to plug it into the USB port on a laptop or desktop and see if the computer can read the files. If it can display and explore folders and files, chances are it's the screen (display) that went south. It it can't display and read folders and files chances are it's the memory or some other internal hardware that died. Sadly these things are cheaper to replace than to repair. I have a Kindle II with a faded out display. It works but the text is so light that it's barely readable so I retired it. I have a Kindle Touch that I dropped and the screen broke so I ended up getting a Kindle Paper White and I like it the best of them all.

Word BOOT on screen of zehnder sat box then

Sounds like the firmware has gone from the sat box
take it to a satellite repairer or if you feel competent enough you can use a null modem cable to download the version from your box and then you can then download the firmware from the internet and then install firmware onto box! this happens alot with topfield sat boxes but some wont accept the firmware its a 50/50 chance but give it a shot you cant get any worse!
hope this helps,ben
