    YES IT IS A LAPTOP, SORRY. I REPLACED THE MONITOR AND WHEN I PLUG THE RIBBON CABLE IN THE UNIT SEEMS TO SHORT AND SHUT OFF. I UNPLUGGED THE OTHER END TO ISOLATE AND SEEMS TO BE CABLE. DO YOU AGREE?

    This is posted under a PC desktop heading, and I can't think of any ribbon cable used with a monitor. Do you mean the monitor signal cable which is round and connects to the computer? Is it one of the internal cables? Or is this a laptop computer which has had the display replaced? That would be a ribbon cable connection to the main board.

There should be two cables to plug in to the main board. One is a larger multi-pin plug which is the data cable to the display electronics. The other should be a 2- or maybe 3-pin plug which is power to the inverter which provides backlight power.

It's possible the replacement display you used is defective in some way or is not the right one for your laptop. If the data cable is wired differently from your original that might cause the trouble. Or the inverter board in the replacement may be bad and is drawing too much power and causing the shutdown.

In either case the display certainly seems to be the problem. I would suggest contacting whoever sold you the replacement about this and ask for an exchange.

Accidentally my netbook fell down,now the display screen is not working


You get nothing? Black? You didn't post the Make, Model of Laptop or the OS. Is the monitor broken? So here's a general idea. There is a ribbon cable that connects the monitor to the motherboard, it's on the back of the monitor. Google your Make, Model of laptop for a video on screen replacement. Check ALL graphics cables. How does it shut off the monitor when you open and close the lid? Some laptops have a tiny switch near the hinges. When the hinge is damaged, out of line, etc., it will not function properly. That's a good place to start. Take a look at this video tips: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Yi6GNFcP3w

Cant logon black screen


Do you see anything? No "ghost image"? A white cursor in the top left? Any damage ? Drop? Jarred? Bumped? May be backlighting, inverter, lose ribbon cable, bad graphic adapter. Can you attach a external monitor to verify the graphics adapter? Take a look at this video for ideas: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Yi6GNFcP3w Remove ALL media from DVD rom, usb, etc. shut down, unplug, remove battery, plug in, reboot. Any change?

Screen goes blank when any key is pressed


Open your netbook and remove the ribbon connecting the keyboard to the motherboard and the screen cable (long and black cable) and dry it out (DO NOT GET WATER ON THE MOTHERBOARD it will break COMPLETELY) YOU ARE very very lucky id didn't already and replace and tell me if that worked

Hp pavilion dv4 screen will not work. everything


Few trouble shoot solution when it comes to these HP Laptop from 08-09.

1). Remove battery and ram. Plug in AC Adapter and insert only ONE RAM into a slot. Boot up and see if this will turn on display (it work on a HP Dv4-1225dx) IF it works then shut down and re insert the two ram and should be good to go :)

2). If your tech savvy remove keyboard and gain access to LCD flex ribbon cable to check if cable is loose (or go on a limb and replace the lcd flex cable ). I would detach it and re attach the ribbon back to motherboard. ( This happen sometimes by chance)

3). Your LCD is shot dead so it will need to be replaced. Current used LCD can range from $40-$50 and new ones with warranty $60-$100. HP is set up for easy LCD removal so shouldn't take more then 30mins to replace, just be careful when handling the ribbon and inverter cables.

GOOD LUCK

Well something more appropriate i guess would be my ongoing issue with DS's that have had screens replaced.

if you could describe something for me

as the unit will not power ,,, plug in the charger, if it is as i suspect you will get an orange light illuminate for 1 second, after it goes off the unit is unresponsive until you unplug and replug the charger.

if this describes your problem i would be most interested to hear weather you used the ORIGINAL screen or if it is a replacement screen

thanx

Definite ribbon problem!!! Need help.


Hi It's sad when a simple problem, causes a piece of equipment to be thrown away, while all the expensive parts are still ok. If you are mechanical, and can carefully take the unit apart,(make sure it is unplugged), the ribbon cable may be a plug-in type, and you can remove it from it's connector on the monitor end, and in the main unit, and if you bring it to your local electronics repair shop, they may give you one if they have one the same size (same # of conductors), or sell you one for a few dollars. Otherwise, if you have a fine tipped soldering iron, and experience soldering, you can bypass some or all of the damaged connectors in the ribbon cable with small wires. Cut them to length, and solder them to the respective pins on the ribbon cable connectors. Hopefully, you can see which lines on the ribbon cable have been damaged, and will only have to hard-wire bypass a couple. Otherwise, it would be more economical to replace it. Hope this helps! Good Luck!
