Maybe the lcd screen is going bad. Try an external monitor. if the external monitor works fine then your lcd screen on the laptop is going bad. If the external monitor behaves the same way, then the Video Card on the computer is going bad.
Plug in an external monitor and see if thedisplay shows up on it. It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crtmonitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vgaport. If so that proves your video card is ok. The video will showon most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systemswill require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold downthe FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thruF12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will havethe icon of a display.
I had this same problem with the 100 and 500 version. I had to use HD connector on those devices and the RGB cables only work with some devices. It is kind of hit and miss on which works and which doesn't. I have an 8 year old VCR only that works on the RGB cables but my new VCR/DVD machines only work on the HD (Round black connector) connector output.
What is your signal source, OTA or cable? Did lightning or another type of power surge recently hit? Make sure you have the TV on the desired input.
If OTA check your antenna direction and that you have the Channel Setup (from the menu) set to Antenna. Also check if you have the right antenna to get stations in your area. Antennaweb.org gives the most likely channels and directions. tvfool.com will give more detailed information and more stations. Both sites assume outdoor antennas but the direction information is always good. Look for new construction or big trees that might block the signal. Do you have multiple TVs sharing the same antenna? You might need an amplifier.
If cable, check the Channel setup. Check for someone recently damaging your cable installation (cutting the wires, trying to split the signal to get it for free) Splitting the signal to multiple TVs may also be an issue, get an amplifier of the correct type. Some cable systems may require a bidirectional amplifier.
If you recently had a power surge, see if the TV works with other inputs. Tuners can be replaced if the TV is worth the labor costs for you.
I hope this helps.
Cindy Wells ( My household had three tvs and a digital to analog converter that lost
their tuners after a nearby lightning strike. We chose to replace the
TVs since two were over 15 years old and the third was also out of
Yes but you will need to replace the panel. in total to have this fixed about half the price of the TV (good way to get a figure), though you can save about half of that again by ordering your own panel and installing yourself.
Is not that hard to do, just open the tv and take it apart, place in new screen then work backwards to put everything back together... al the cables ect can only go one way.
Hope this helps in some way
without seeing the set this is a hard one to fix if the button is slack when you press it then the button is going to be the problem otherwise it could be a transformer that has gone in the set, 12 years is a good age for a tv so i would suggestreplacing it with a new lcd or plasma.
