Problem with screen

I am having a problem with my screen. It has some sort of bad connection in the screen or behind the screen. Some times the screen will have some horizontal lines and some times it will start going white with fine black spots. This might sound bad, but if you tap the back of the screen you can get it to clear up. I'm resonably sure its not the inverter. Thanks

    I already pulled the screen off, cleaned the contacts of the ribbon cable and plugged it back in. It made an improvment but didn't fix it. I also unplugged both connectors on the inverter and plugged them back in. Still nothing. Thanks for your reply

Hi there
Obviously a disgruntled Fixya member!!!

Ok, it sounds like you just have a bad connection either at the inverter end (bottom of screen) ot the cable that goes to the top behind the screen has worked loose.
To fix this, you might have to remove the lid from the base of the laptop, but i find that unscrewing the bezel (plastic that surrounds the screen) and removing the plastic and re-seating the connections again, you have to be carefull though as the ribbon cable behind the screen is fragile.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!

The LCD screen intermittantly flashes

It could be the on/off switch that turns on/off the monitor when you open and close the lid. If the hinges are lose, damaged due to a drop, jar or have dust, dirt, etc. it will get stuck. If you have canned air clean around the hinges. Also there is a ribbon cable behind the monitor and a backlight at the bottom of the monitor. This video will give you the idea:

52 Inch RCA D52W17 BYX1 projection screen tv cuts off when i TURN ON

The set literally has a 3 strikes and you are out where it will try three times and go to shutdown.

The common issues this set has are bad solder connections under and around the high voltage transformer and also in some cases the High voltage splitter block (located way up front behind lower grill below screen unit and behind a removable inspection plate).

The transformer rarely fails but can--photo of what is general appearance of this type of part is attached.

Will not come on screen black power light on,

Try connecting it to an external monitor when you boot up and see if you can get some sort of indication about whether the machine is actually booting up or if it is completely dead.

You may have a bad screen or screen inverter, or a bad motherboard. I see these kinds of problems frequently and they usually take some time to track down the cause.

It is starting to have a convergence problem, for a short time then go back to normal. There is a big bow in the middle of the screen.

carefully remove the back of the tv and look for the convergence panel then make a note of where the plug/socket connections go then remove

once you have done this use a good soldering iron and re-solder any bad connections on the panel

that should sort it , post back if you have any more questions.

It is possible that you have some loose connections, but I have seen the relays in the power supply get to be intermitent and will not stay closed. Tapping lightly on the relays will usually tell whether or not they are bad.
