Laptop screen has gone blank

I assume that your laptop's display has been damaged. Are you sure that other things are working normally? If other components are working, then problem will be with the display unit. Try to repair or replace with new one.

Please try and reset the mode of the image to see if the LCD does not go blank when shown to higher light. Also if there is no issue with the indoor pictures then it is possible that the auto light detection is giving a higher value to reset the image balancing. Shift from Auto to manual mode and try.

Fainted image on screen

ltaufer, My best guess is monitor has partial shutdown of the internal "switch-mode-power-supply"/"CCFL inverter supply that lights-up the fluorescent lamps that provide WHITE LIGHT so you can see all the pretty colors on the LCD glass panel. Your monitor falls into the BLACK screen failure type. (no backlight) Full shutdown mode=BLACK and BLANK. Read more of my FIXYA profile to discover all the options you have to get it repaired and not ripped-off. Your CCFL backlit LCD monitor no different than any other brand of LCD in it's basic design and operational principals. Read, read, read!!! You must find out two things first. Not just WHAT failed, but also WHY it failed. Follow the links in my profile to other web sites!! Livio, This is my response #200 on fixya dealing mostly (98 percent) with BLACK screen problems. If you find this response helpful, please return to rate it in a few days. 12fixlouie

My monitor shows a blank screen .But when I press the RGB, DVI button, I can see my desktop for a second then it stops displaying. I have to keep pressing the button to change the display type in order to...

moneyshaker, Maybe your screen (LCD panel) is not blank, just BLACK!!! First thing to do is the flashlight test! With monitor connected to a KNOWN GOOD fully booted pc with WIN-desktop showing, reconnect N9 lcd to pc. Then and only then turn on N9 lcd. Note what you see or don't see!! If screen flashes on for 1 sec and goes to BLACK, then shine a bright flashlight 1" form screen at different angles and note if you see or don't see the desktop. This is only a test to check the condition of the unit's power supply and or INVERTER circuit. If you can still see the desktop even though the screen appears BLACK, then the "switch-mode-power-supply" is only partly bad. You did not state age of your unit? Most likely your problem is that the SMPS is detecting a fault in the INVERTER circuit that provides 800 to 1200 volts to light up the "cold-cathode-fluorescent-tubes" that are hung on the rear of the Clear Glass LCD panel and in front of a mirrored reflective surface. GEE wiz If I could take these long, straight, CCFT's and turn them into coils and mate them with an electronic ballast circuit called a CONVERTER circuit (ac to ac) and put them into an oversize light bulb screw-in base I could make millions.... Oh ****, That's already been done!!!! Oh! so that's how those new CFL lamps work. I suspect that your INVERTER (dc to ac) has almost bit the dirt. It will need to be looked at by a tech type person or you could visit Youtube and chcek for video clips that deal with monitor disassembly and or repair of the 2 most common LCD monitor failures. Look under "swollen electrolytic filter capacitors" and BAD capacitors, and Poor soldering and /or poor factory oven REFLOW SOLDERING and or Thermally intermittant soldering connections on printed circuit boards. This is only a guess as to what plagues you monitor. Please rate this response on fixya if it was of any help at all. im'louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel @aol .com

I am using this great LCD for about an year. But few times in the past my LCD didnt show up the display though the Green light was still ON, turning off the LCD and opening it again always solved the problem.

I am just seeing a blank screen with green light ON. and ya theres a very low hissing sound coming from the LCD.

Please help me agian

So, if your motherboard is turning on and the fan comes on than for now you can check to see if your back light turns on for your lcd panel by going to a dark place and turn ont he laptop there. Than check if you see a faint light that stays on or a flicker. If you see a faint light or the display is dim than it is the inverter on the lcd panel otherwise you may need to replace the video card which can be integrated onto the motherboard and may require a new motherboard. All depends on the model you have.

LCD Display Blank

I have a sony cybershot DSC-S650, the LCD was very dark and could not see anything except if I pointed it at a bright object, everything else worked ok. I could take pictures but could barely see them in playback as well.

I took it to Sony authorised repair outlet and was told the CCD was damaged, they charged me USD $55 to repair it (in Quito, Ecuador)
