My lenova g550 hard disc indicator light won't turn opn. the screen is black


Have you made any modifications to the computer lately? (Taken it apart ect?) I had a similar issue with mine. There was a short in the keyboard. I ordered and installed a new keyboard and it has booted up fine ever since.

Try something as simple as checking the keyboard connection, this will require taking the laptop apart though.

My Lenovo, G550 turns on every light comes on except the screen the light for the power is on but nothing will get screen on can you help me


Hi eseitz26,

For your G550 issue that no display will show on your screen after turning it on although all the lights are showing there are different reasons why you're getting this issue. The two most common issues are:


(1) The system just needed to be refreshed and reset the BIOS. Don't worry because resetting BIOS is just easy and you can do this on your own. Simply power drain your machine.

Here's how: Shut down your PC >> Remove the battery and unplug AC adapter >> Without any power source press and hold the power button for 15-20 seconds (nothing will happen yet) >> Put back the battery and the charger >> Then, turn on your PC.


(2) The LCD cable from your screen going to the motherboard is loosed, that needed to be repaired or defective, and it needs replacement. For this one, you may contact Lenovo to give you options about the repair.

Well, in some rare cases screen might be also defective and needs replacement. You may also take a look on that possibility.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for using Fixya.

Nothing or black screen shows up when pic is taken


The problem is with the software in the camera! So take your camera to the nearby service center and do a format of your camera! That will fix your problem. Also check whether there is any problem in ur LCD screen!

Problem with iphone the camera shows ablack screen


Clean any debris from lens with soft cloth.
Try and download a free "camera" app from app store.
If app doesnt display camera correctly, restore your iPhone, if still not working your hardware may be damaged.

My camera just shows a black screen


Software or hardware problem ?
Test your hardware here by clicking on "allow" in the top window and seeing if your webcam works in the left panel
http://www.testmycam.com/
If it works there you know you have a software problem
Solutions
1) go to your Device Manager - expand the "Imaging", file update your driver by right clicking the webcam text and select update - take the internet option when prompted
or
2) You can uninstall the webcam program and run the CD or go to the manufacturer's support website and download from there.
or
3) If your OS recognises new hardware - uninstall the webcam software - plug the webcam in and let it find and install the software.

My iphone camera just shows a black screen when i touch the camera app and wont allow me to take pictures what can i do


pls see this First !! B4 reset
Straight from Apple Iphone Manual
Camera is not functioning
  1. Tap Camera, then point and shoot. Note: If you take a picture with iPhone turned sideways, it is automatically saved in landscape orientation. If you do not see Camera on the any of the multiple Home screens, check to make sure that Restrictions are not turned on by tapping Settings > General > Restrictions. If they are, set Allow Camera to ON or tap Disable Restrictions (in iPhone 2.1 software or later).
  2. If that doesn't work, clean the camera lens with the cleaning cloth that came in the box with iPhone.

Phone screen is black


With the phone off, hold * and # keys and then press power button:

- If your phone screen still dont show anything then the backlight or whole screen is broken and you would need to replace or make a technician to replace the screen.
- If your phone shows a boot screen with serial numbers on it, then you would need to re-flash or reload the phone firmware to recover your phone. For that you may need some special software, a PC and your phone's USB cable. You can find tutorials and guides over the web.

To get out the bootloader screen you need to take out the battery and the re-flash procedure delete all your data so I recomend you to download it with your phones PC software.

Good Luck...
