This is a coincedence. The CDX-M800 had a HUGE problem with the ribbon cable on the face going bad, causing this exact problem.
$14.00 and some time will put it back into perfect condition.

My LG R410 makes wierd whenever i press any buton noises and blank screen


It will do that if the screen is black, Beep repeatedly, every time you tap a button. If that is the only problem you have, you don't have a problem. Just don't push the keys a blank screen. The statement "it was fine then i shooted it down then again i turn it on it was blank" , could you rephrase that statement? Is the machine not booting?

My mini NB300 notebook has blank (blackout) screen when it is "on"


I had the same problem with Mini NB300. Computer would start to boot and the screen would go black. I tried everything humanly possible and stumbled onto the solution to resolve it.

1. Plug the AC Adapter into the Notebook PC.
2. Press and hold the Power button for 5 Seconds to turn off the PC.
3. Press and hold the F10 key while you press the Power button to turn on the PC. Release the F10 key after text is displayed on the screen of the PC.

I hope this will work for you.

Screen black out


best way to trouble shoot a monitor is to plug into a different monitor do you have a desktop monitor you can try?also alot of laptops have a small button that turns monitor off when you shut it down around the base of the monitor make sure it isnt stuck.is it going into hibernation? try pulling the battery and unplugging it then plugging it back in.if it is stuck in hibernation that should work.

When monitor power button is pressed, a small white image appears and alternates briefly between an alalog and digital icon in black then the screen goes blank, no color.


My issue is similar.. however after trying a couple of times it will work. (yes everything is plugged in) It will function for a good 10 minutes before just powering off (blackout) screen.
If you attempt to turn it on after it blacking out, the blue led for the power button will blink a couple of times and it will remain off.
However if you wait 5-10 minutes and turn it back on, it will repeat itself...

I have it hooked up to a radeon X1650 graphics controller as a secondary digital controller, and its hooked up by VGA cable.

I also have two other displays besides this one (one primary and extended that dont have any issues whatsoever.. they continue to function while the syncmaster 193p takes its time snoozing.... please help.

SCREEN WON,T STAY LIT UNLESS I TOUCH IT


You are simply in blackout mode. This is so at night you aren't blinded by the glow of a screen. Here are instructions right from the manual to turn on or off.

Blackout Mode On and Off
When Blackout mode is turned on, the monitor display will turn off to
reduce power consumption.
This additional power enhances the sound quality.
1 Touch [VISUAL] on the main source screen.
The VISUAL selection screen is displayed.
2 Touch [OFF].
The backlit-display portion goes out.
3 Touch [OFF] again to cancel the display backlight.
To make the setting, set to “Setting the VISUAL Touch Button” (page
34).
If any button on the unit is pressed during Blackout mode, the
function will be displayed for 5 seconds to show the operation before
returning to Blackout mode.
While the backlighting is turned off, the function indicator

Getting frequent black screens on 1501 Inspiron Laptop


Black screen is probably a screen saver or the screen is turned off by power management software.
Check your screensaver setting. Change the screensaver to None to disable screensaver.
I assume you are using Windows XP.
If the LCD is turned off by power management, on the same screen with screen saver, on the lower part of the box there is a Power button. Click to open Power Options Properties. Set your monitor power properties there.
When the screen go blank and you have to push power button, probably the computer is set to go to stand by mode after some idle minutes. You can also set it here in system standby setting.
