Open Question

Pavilion 6355 with pavilion m50 monitor model #D5258A

Problem I power up CPU I see the H/P logo screen then it changes to a black screen with blinking curser top left corner.

I can enter F1 Set-up screens

I cannot enter F8 fail safe mode

Any idea's ? Also if I press the select button the screen resolution is set to 720x400 70hz.

The CPU was purchased by my father new 75 years old he used it very little and left it unplugged several years and passed to my son for personal use.

It's basically a new unit love to resolve the problem.

SOURCE: Power Light Blinking & Black Screen

A blinking blue light indiactes that your power-inverter board is not putting out what it should. It needs an overhaul which may be a simple as changing out the capacitors on the boards.
It could go beyong that to transistors or even a bad bulb.
It will have to be opened up to do that.
A picture may show visual signs of damage. If you can take one and email it to me , I'll take a look.

Have you tried the connection with Vga cable? If not try with a vga cable and setup the connection via VGA ports instead of DVI. If usb or audio connections are setup, please unplug them while trying this.

Also, when it goes "blank", look at the monitor very carefully and verify whether you see the images of the screen/desktop (though dark), if you can still see the images of the screen, then it's related to the inverter board, you'll need to replace the mainboard or replace the capacitors. You can refer the capacitors here (Click here, Page # 5), they are C801, C838, C851, C858, C868.

Before you replace them, check for damaged or bulged or melted (joints/connectors) capacitors on the board. You may also smell the burnt scent of the capacitors, sometimes it's difficult to detect with our eyes, only with meter/tester will work.

Also make sure the OSD isn't locked, press and hold down the Menu button until you see a message about OSD locked/unlock.

All the best.

You change it at the PC, the video resolution from your new PC is too high for the monitor to display.

Hi,

First make sure that all the cords are connected properly from the back of the CPU to your Monitor.I suggest you to unplug all the cords of the CPU and then plug them back in after 10min. and make sure they are all connected tightly.Next check if the power cord connected to the Monitor is attached tightly.

If you still face the problem then you will have to replace it with a new power cord whih connects the CPU to your Monitor.It is black in colour.

Screen is blank (white) when turned on.


Hi,
Welcome to Fixya Support
I am Michelle, and i will be assisting you regarding the issue
Turn off the system. Unplug the power cord from the mains. Keep the power button of the cpu (not the monitor) pressed for 5-6 seconds. turn the unit bcak on and check.

Please reseat the monitor cable that connects to the desktop ensuring a secure connection.
Further, if you are able to see the Lenovo Logo on startup try booting to safe mode by tapping F8 key on the lenovo logo itself.
Howevre, in case you are not even able to view the lenovo logo on startup, then it could be a fault with the lcd monitor itself requiring a repair.

Screen is black.


Please shine a flashlight on the monitor screen.
If you see a dim image on the screen the back light needs to be replaced.

If it still shows black try another data cable from the monitor to the computer

If that still did not work as the machine is turned on remove the data cable connector from the computer. Check the monitor screen to see if it says no signal. If it does not the LCD screen on the monitor needs to be replaced. If it does the computers graphics card needs to be replaced.
