My Sony Laptop has absolutely no picture any longer. I cut it off and restarted. The ''VAIO'' letters came up pinkish orange and the faded completely. The computer is running, but won't display a screen . It's like a bulb or picture tube is blown. Can that happen, or what does this sound like. I know nothing about computers. I use it for work, but my son plays sport games on it once in a while.

There are to things that come to mind, the LCD panel is bad, " will need to be replaced" or the video cable from the motherboard to the screen has come loose and will need to be reseated back into place. I would also suggest hooking a spare monitor to the laptop to rule out the video graphics card on the motherboard.
Since that water is spilled inside the Computer, please do not turn it ON or
connect to the AC Power. This will cause serious Hardware damages in the
Computer. I would recommend that you contact Sony Service Center to repair the

unfortunately, when this happens on a sony vaio it is not fixable economically. there is a part inside that makes the screen backlit, and it is powered by another part that sits deep inside of the laptop and technicians like to steer away from this one.
I had a friend with a sony vaio and it was a nice older model from 1995 or so, and it had the same problem, but worse.
You may have a defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom: Screen flashes on and off or displays reddish pink hue. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering with dim display or appear black. Picture flickers on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replace the CCFL lamp. To determine if the video card or the LCD is faulty, connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight. It could be a faulty inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out, usually the CCFL lamp fails before the inverter. The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

It's possible you have a problem with either the LCD or with your system board or CPU. Plug an external monitor into your laptop and then boot it up. If you get a picture on the external monitor, the problem is your LCD. If you still get no picture, you likely have a bad system board or processor.
