Question about Pioneer AVIC-N2 Car DVD Player

1 Answer

Backlight won't work on screen

I had my Avic N2 for about 3 years and I been riding with the backlight off for about 1 of those years. It just went out one very cold day my car barely cranked up. After the car did crank up, I noticed the screen was blank but the touch still worked. Good thing I had more screens in my car or I would have panicked. I think it's about time I learn how to fix or replace the backlight on this unit so I can discard the other screens I have in my car. Can someone help me ether A. explain how I fix the backlight problem, B. Replace what ever it is I have to replace to get the backlight back on or C. let me know if there is a Chicago IL Pioneer repair show that knows how to fix em (I rather drive to them and wait for it to me done than ship the unit to someone and be without a radio for how ever long). Any help would be greatly appreciated. THANK YOU IN ADVACE!

Sounds like the flex cable has failed. I have the N1 and when the flex cable snapped, the screen still worked, but the backlight is off. Pioneer issued a recall of the flex for N1 and N2's. They will fix it for free.

White screen, can only see shadows of the picture


Hello
Its backlight is not working. Check the CCFL tubes, and it backlight inverter board for fault.
Backlight inverter board will look somewhat like this. If this board has damaged, CCFL lamps won't light up, and there will be no backlight. OK.

Hi..i am using compaq presario cq 40 and screen is flickering.i had it checked and they told me lcd is the problem but they didnt even bother to check.they just turned it on and they told me that i have to...


When it flickers, can you still see the text when the screen goes dark?
May have to use a bright flashlight set right on the display to see
the text on the screen beside where the light sits.
That will tell you if it's the backlight.

You can also look at a grazing angle into one of the edges to see if the
backlight is flickering when the display does.
When it's cold, does it start with a slight pinkish color? That can be
a sign of backlight going bad.
Anything interesting happen when you flex the cable by moving the screen?

I'm not saying it's impossible, but I've never seen software cause
consistent screen flicker. And if the vga port doesn't flicker, sw is
even less likely the problem.

If you bet the odds, you'd bet on a bad display cable.
Won't hurt to try replugging it.

If that doesn't help, then your monitor may be dying....

Hi I have a Acer aspire 9410 (9414wlsmi) 17 screen. The problem is that i have no backlight at all, i've bought a new screen + new inverter/backlight driver + new cable but it did'nt help i have...


The inverter/backlight combination isn't the whole picture. The inverter powers the backlight, but the inverter is controlled by a signal commonly called "Brite-On", which comes from the motherboard. If the "Bright -On" signal from the motherboard is missing,then the inverter (and thus the backlight) won't work. The problem you are having is on the motherboard. here's a link to a datasheet of such a device:

3 year old 42in LG LCD TV scrren went blank


You will either have a fault with the inverter board which drives the backlights or a faulty backlight in the screen. If the problem is a backlight then a replacement screen is the only cure. One or the other is breaking down after it has been opn for a certain period of time, have an engineer call out & check with a tester if it is a screen problem.

Vizio screen went off but power light is still on


may be a mainboard problem. If you can see the orange light it usualy means that there is power running through the TV... usually inverter boards are a problem when you do not see any backlight at all.

Have an Acer 5315-2153 with 15.4 screen went black


Cheack your video with and external monitor, if you have video then you will need replace your inverter or backlight or both, if your lcd it is nor cracked this is a common problem with the lcd.
You need to remove your frontal plastic in order to see your inverter, if this didnt work replace your backlight.

\this is a heavy job if you didnt have the experience or tools, we can replace your inverter/backlight for $75 usd

Backlight on sidekick 3


Because your screen is broken and that can only be fixed if you have it replaced.
