    No less than 15 seconds after I took it out of the box, the screen went black; then blank. The scanner still functions exactly how it should just without a display.

    Rat shack should take it back considering it's under the 30 day purchase. Too bad I didn't know before hand the screens commonly stop working.

My DTV stopped working giving a blank screen

It may just need to be Re-tuned.

What I would suggest you do is make sure that you are on a DTV channel on your Tv. then with your Pioneer remote press the menu button and then set it away on a Auto tune.
You must have it on a DTV channel first before try to tune as if you mistakenly have it on TV (terrestrail channel) It will only Auto tune that and not your freeview.

Hope you get it sorted.

My acer 4520's screen is blank when i'm turning it on.


There are approx 4 reasons why this might happen:

  1. 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.
  2. The panel has died - Need a new panel
  3. A cable has worked itself loose or is broken
  4. The inverter has gone - Need new inverter
  5. Long shot, the bios has got corrupted - Engineer could re-flash the bios
  6. Long shot, Mainboard onboard graphics has gone - Need new mainboard
My personal opinion is that the backlight or inverter has gone - Either way it needs to be opened up to repair it, consult a service centre and get a quote or repair it yourself if your up for it.

I have an acer laptop. When you turn it on you can hear it running but the screen stays blank

Is the screen black(unlit) or blank? If it's not lit, use a bright torch to see if there is a picture, and it means the backlight has gone, which is an easy fix.

Sound stays on & picture goes to blank screen

I do not see any reference on this problem and I even checked with Sony. If you are on a cable box, I suspect that is the problem.

After power outage, TV screen is blank

It sounds funny but, unplug the set for 30 seconds to allow the TV to reset then see if the problem still is there.
