Backlight suddenly disapears.

When I take out the adapter, put it in again and restart the pc, the light comes on again. This happens quite often. Sometimes it comes back when I change the angel of the screen a little bit. What`s the problem ?

Sounds like it could be a loose connection to the backlight. This can happen with the opening and closing of the machine over time. The only way to check is to open the case and possibly remove the screen in order to check the connections. It could also be that the backlight is starting to fail. This is not a serviceable part and would have to be replaced.

SOURCE: backlight keeps going out

there are possibly two answers to your situation.

  1. the connector which connect the display with the motherboard is not properly connected.
  2. the display module in the motherboard is malfunctioning
in both the cases you must call the customer care.and if your system is under warranty they will repair it for free.

if you find the solution useful plz rate me carefully.

Engine suddenly quits with no warning

Without knowing where the sound is coming from, theres no way to know if it is important.
Is it possible the noise is the ac clutch, and the ac compressor is locking up and killing the engine ?

Light is turning red not green and sometimes dosent come on when xboox is turned on

the adapter only comes on usually when the xbox is turned on and booting itself up. try restarting the xbox over and over again and replugging in the adapter.If the light is red that meanes its on and running but cannot connect to your router or modem etc. if this is happening reconfig your connection so it recognizes your router.IMPORTANT: if you have security on your router you must enter everything in before you can connect. If your adapter still doesnt read your router you must be out of range or the router is not putting out a signal.

Dim Laptop screen

It could either be your power settings dimming it (battery saver mode), or more likely when you replaced the screen, you replaced the backlight with the one that came with it. The replacement backlight is probably not as good as the one you had. You can try putting your other backlight in it (the backlight is that circuit board near the hinge that you plug in when you switch the screens out). Since it's going in and out, I'd check the power settings first though.

Series Back Light

It is possible that by holding the power button down too long, that you turned off the backlight. When you hold down the power button, a menu eventually comes up with "Backlight Off" highlighted. The easiest way to undo this, is to simply do a soft reset. Or, you can hold down the power button again, and "Backlight On" will be highlighted (if there's enough ambient light you can see this message); just tap it, and the backlight will come on again. Also check out your backlight settings by tapping: [Start][Settings]tab[System][Backlight] the tab [Battery Power] should be highlighted; adjust as desired. Next tap the tab [External Power]; adjust as desired. Finally, tap the tab [Brightness] and make sure the sliders are high enough.
