It is natural to ipod the screen will be dark if has no power unless the LCD of your iPod is defected even it has a power its remain dark that’s the symptom of defected LCD screen. I hope your problem is a power failure only. Make sue your iPod is fully charged and then toggle the hold switch on and off. Then reset your iPod nano; Toggle the Hold switch on and off,(Slide it to Hold then it off again). Then press and Hold the Menu and Center (select0 buttons simultaneously until the apple logo appears ,about 6 to 10 seconds .You may need to repeat this step . If you having difficulty resetting your iPod set it on a flat surface .Make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel,and not near the center. Then If the above steps did not work, try connecting iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep. Try your iPod nano with a different USB port on your computer, not a USB port on your keyboard or hub. iPod will stop charging if the computer, or portable computer, it's connected to enters standby, hibernation, or sleep mode. To charge your iPod, connect it directly to a computer's USB port and make sure standby, hibernation, or sleep mode is turned off. If using a portable computer, make sure it is plugged in to a power source and that the lid or display is open. If the lid is closed the computer may go into either standby, sleep, or hibernation mode and iPod will not charge properly. If you have an Apple iPod USB power adapter you'll be able to charge your iPod without leaving your computer powered on. If all procedure above for power to on is not working then its better to replaced the battery with anew one so its works normal again.

Hope it may help you;
Regards;

Panasonic TV TC-2175C, display turning dark


There are mainly two reasons for this fault. The first one is with its screen voltage settings. If the screen voltage settings have gone down [it can be happen automatically in rare cases], the screen will look dark. The second one is with its video output section itself. Anyway, you have to seek an experienced service technicians' help in this matter, if you are not handy in electronics.

Screen stays black when i turn it on. I get no picture at all


Hi,

There are a number reasons why this might happen:
  • The backlight has gone (Find a dark place and shine a torch into the screen and see if you can see an image in the background, if you see an image then the backlight has gone) - Needs a new backlight (Engineer to remove and fit) or have a new panel fitted.
  • The panel has died - Need a new panel
  • A cable has worked itself loose or is broken
  • The inverter has gone - Need new inverter
  • The driver board is faulty
Thanks

Dark screen


Sounds like it is the backlight that has gone. New screens are a lot more reasonable cost option now and they tend to have the backlight incorporated into them. Replacing a backlight is not a simple procedure by any means. If you're not sure about changing components yourself then take it to a repair shop.

The screen went dark on jmv 111


Dark as in gone or dark as in the image is still viewable?  How does the onscreen menu look when the image is dark/gone?  If the onscreen menu looks right and the image is still dark, you might want to check the cables or another input.  If another device using different cables and another input looks fine, you may only have a problem with the input/cable you are using to view the movie.  If the onscreen menu is also dark, then I would think there is an internal problem that needs looking into.
