Re: My Sandish Sanza ( 2gb) backlight screen is black
Reset All NOTE: THIS IS AN ADVANCED OPERATION AND RESTORES ALL SETTINGS TO THE FACTORY DEFAULTS. NORMAL USERS ARE NOT RECOMMENDED TO PERFORM THIS OPERATION! If your device freezes up press the Menu button and hold for 15 seconds. This is like a power down of the device. Once you perform the reset, the adjustments you made during last operation will be gone.....
IF that doesn't work try to recover...download the update software and install then lock your sansa hold in the rec key on the left at the same time push the menu/power button this will take you to recovery mode then connect to the computer Star the update software if it doesn't start automatic goto /start /all programs /Sandisk/sansa updater/ sansa updater and start it up manually... follow instructions on the updater and the sansa hope this works....

The monitor on this is an LCD, not an LED monitor. The symptoms you are describing are classic fluorescent backlight failure symptoms. It seems a bit early in life for that to occur, as most failure after 2-3 years of use. To determine if the backlight has failed, after booting the system, look at the screen at very close range at an angle. If you can see what looks like a ghost image of what should be on the display, then the video chip is providing video to the display, but the backlight isn't illuminating it. Repair or replace the monitor.
It would seem that backlight for your screen is out. The light may be dead, have a poor connection, or your brightness may be down to zero. To see if the brightness is just low hold the function button "FN" and if you look on the left and right arrow keys there should be a Sun on each one. The left being brighter or filled in, the right darker or hollow. Press the left key while holding the "FN" button. Keep doing this to increase the brightness. If the screen doesn't get brighter there is an issue with the backlight. This is usually covered under warranty. If you still have a warranty contact Acer and they should repair your computer free of charge. If it is not under warranty you may need to replace the screen.
There is a flourescent light that backlights the screen. If your screen brightness control will not make the screen any brighter, then the backlight has stopped working. You will either have to replace that light or replace the monitor.
The backlight is the light bult that illuminates the screen. Before it finally goes out completely it will turn your screen a pink color on startup (and then usually become brighter and the pink fades). It is also possible that the backlight, also called a Cold Cathode Flourescent Light, CCFL, died an immediate death. But usually they take a while and signal with the "PINKNESS" first. If you found that your computer is working just fine connected to an external monitor (and you moved the base of your laptop around while connected to the monitor to be sure and left the computer on for a long time) then you have verified that the screen is the problem. It is usually two things: (1) the inverter, a circuit board that increases the voltage to supply the LCD which eats around 700 volts (yeah baby); or (2) the backlight itself. The first problem is a relatively easy and inexpensive fix. You can find how to replace an inverter by downloading the Hardware Maintenance Manual for the T40, T41, etc., from IBM/Lenovo's site. Replacing the backlight itself, a bulb that is like a strand of speghetti and even more delicate, is a tougher job. I would suggest purchasing a replacement screen in that event rather than replacing the backlight yourself. (The HMM probably does not show you how to replace the backlight/CCFL as it is a potentially dangerous job.) That suggestion assumes you can find a cost-effective replacement screen and do not mind opening the TP and putting the new screen in. At least look at the HMM to see what is involved. Good luck.
I thought my ipod was broken but i did something to make it brighter: Go to settings and scroll to brightness (i guess it should be right under backlight timer in the menu) There you will need to scroll clockwise and you will see your screen get brighter. Anyway I have a ipod video I'm not sure if it's the same as the other ipod series.
easy fix my friend its temporary firmware problem . ok now to fix it
plug the sansa in your pc ,just doing so can fix the problem if not
,unplug it from the pc the unit should have stayed on (the blue LED's of
the wheel r on but no screen backlight) push the ON button on the side
and hold it push for a good 20 secon then releass it that will make the
unit do a soft reset and then turn it back on again it may chow the low
bat simbol just plug it back in your pc the screen will show the
turning arrow the backlight of the screen will work, let it recharge
and there you go fix.
My Sansa has a similar problem. Sometimes when the Sansa turns on (after the Sandisk logo) the screen will either turn black, blue, or black and white stripes. The player still works, but it is hard to navigate without the screen, obviously.
What I end up doing is letting the backlight turn off and then pressing any button. Sometimes when the screen comes back, the display is allright again. But sometimes it takes more than a few tries. Turning it off and on again seems to work a little better, but it is more time consuming.
