If you see a dim image or flicking image on the LCD screen it means you have a backlight problem.
Connect an external monitor to the laptop and power it up, if you see a clear image on an external monitor, this means your video card is OK.

Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

Harmony 890 just went dead. Nothing. Nada. Not


I have an 890 also. I've found that the remote doesn't always charge when it the charger. I have to put a rubber band around it and make sure it shows that the the battery symbol on the display is showing that it charging. Or the battery isn't taking a charge anymore and I'd try to replace it. Doesn't really hold a charge very long either.

My touch screen cell phone wont do anything or load nothing


So you take out the battery then put it back. Then you press the power-on button and it powers up. After that .... nada. You cant gert it to do anything? What happens if you call the cell phone? Does it ring? Can you answer it?

If the answers are that you cannot get it to do anything - even answer calls then the firmware is corrupted. You will need to bring it back to the store to have it fixed.

This is a common problem with older Philip Magnavox projection sets. Over time one of the IC chips on the main power board begins to fail. You can find replacment chips and repair instructions on www.magnavoxhelp.com.
