Question about Sony VAIO Computers & Internet

Screen goes black after plugging in charger.

The button that it is charging lights up when I plug it in, but the screen goes black. It did not happen earlier today, only after i restarted my laptop. I tried it in safe mod and the screen did not go black when it was plugged in.

I had problems with my laptop also. My screen would go black, backlight, I could see my screen if I shined a flashlight on the screen. If I opened the screen quickly I could get it to turn back on.
I replaced the inverter board, as mine was a cfl back light for a lcd. Inverter was weak. That helped but I still had some problems with screen not turning on. I found that I had a magnetic lid close switch. I took a magnet and ran it around the edge of the laptop until I located the switch, would turn off the screen. I rubbed circles with the magnet above the switch, med powered magnet from a magnetic screw holder bowl. So far my laptop shut off problem seems to be fixed. Working very well.
Before I ran the magnet over the switch my computer would also shut off when I pulled out the AC plug. Stopped after magnet. I think something gets magnetized and causes problems and magnet corrects problem. You might try this, couldn't hurt.

SOURCE: Blank Screen on HP Laptop

HP has identified a issue with the DV6000Z and monitor. I just reported the same problem to HP and even though off warranty, they will fix free. Power up of DV6000Z you will get 3 beeps and no monitor display. External monitor does not work either. This is a known issue woth the DV6000Z.

SOURCE: acer 4520 light going dim

Normally the way it works is if you plug in your AC Adapter to a laptop the computer screen will Brighten up since its no longer running off of battery and is actually charging . The reason why it should go dim is when you unplug the Ac adapter it goes dim to save battery life and last longer. If you are getting a really dim you can check and make sure that the Ac adapter jack on the adapter or motherboard isnt loose and it could be having contact to the unit and be loose inside and every small movement causes it not to charge / charge in and out and would cause this Dim effect. Again this depends on how old the computer is and I dont really think its the LCD or backlight going bad but you can try to mess with the screen brightness and If im not mistaken on that model it should be the FN key and the Right > and Left < Key for lower and higher brightness. Give that a try and check the adapter connection and you can pin point the issue . Hopefully it doesnt come worst to worst which could be a bad LCD going bad or damaged lcd internal cable. Hope my answer helped guide you closer to a solution.

SOURCE: laptop screen goes black ,but when charger is plugged in it works

This particular model of Hp was shipped with a bad inverter. You can check out the link below to another forum with users with the same problem.
http://forums.majorgeeks.com/showthread.php?s=2d48836d2fa4bb298f0d0f8261490630&t=108320&page=2

In order to fix the problem you just need to discount the old inverter and it should work according to what I have read. The link to the manual is listed below.

SOURCE: Charger light goes out when plug in computer

it could be that the connection jack on the mainboard has been dislodged from the solder joint, common among Gateway comuters and HP units too. is the DC jack loose from the notebook ? if so thats the issue it seems. You will have to bring it to a computer person to resolder. if not and youc an do it yourslef, save money -- but be careful not to damage anything on the mainboard.

Posted on Jan 03, 2012

Testimonial: "Good to know but when I first look at the Jack it look good and soild, I went and ordered a new one anyways and will relook at it just in case, someone said it might have somthing to do with windows 7 software in the device manager battery control method."

Will not charge. Plug it in green charge light goes on, screen flashes battery low, screen shuts off green light goes out


Try resetting your Kindle. Turn off first then hold power button down for about fifteen seconds and it does a reset. This should correct the problem. Make sure you have a charger made for Kindle and not a generic one.

Why laptop screen goes black after plugging battery charger?


Try another charger and then see or it might be a power options issue

Try this

SOLUTION: If you have a second computer, use Remote Desktop by choosing 'Run', type 'mstsc', type the name of the computer with a black screen, and connect. After logging in, open 'Control Panel', and choose 'Power Options'. On the left panel choose 'Choose when to turn off the display'. On the row labeled 'Adjust plan brightness', under the 'Plugged in' column, turn up the brightness slider.

Screen only lights up on battery power but no ac adapter/charger tried three ac chargers all do the same thing so its not screen or charger


Hi David
It sounds like a fault to its power transition section circuit. Actually, this circuit is built inside the mother board to your laptop.
Please contact the authorized service center, and describe and show them the problem you do experience now, with your laptop. It can be rectified. Gopakumar Gopalan Google

How can I fix my hp61 of it won't start screen


You say the battery is charging? Have you tried another Cord/Charger with the EXACT same power specs? Has the AC jack been damaged due to pulling on the cord while plugged in? Any damage? Drop? Do you leave the Laptop plugged in while not in use?

If the phone does not power what may be the cause


hi, does the screen say charging when you plug the charger in if it dont then the problem could be the screen, the battery or the charger.

if the screen lights up and says charging but the phone wont switch on then this points towards the on/off button not working properly.

if you dont know the history of the phone then to me it sounds like it could be liquid damage which means its probably not worth getting fixed.

let me know what happens when charger is plugged in ok then i can assist you further

Battery Charging, Nuvi 35


Charge the unit over night, Plug in the AC charger and you should see a lightning bolt over the battery bar graph display.

With the charger plugged in, gently press and hold the on/off power until the screen goes black and displays the text "Charging battery". After a few seconds, the screen will go black to conserve power. At any time, you can press the screen and it will light up saying its still charging.

If you let it go over night, when you touch the screen, it will say Charging Complete and you can then remove the charger. You should have full green bars on the battery indicator.

NEW PURCHASE AND PLUGGED INTO AUTO TURNED ON AND GARMIN LOGO APPEARED AND THEN SCREEN WENT BLACK. DOES NOT WANT TO STAY ON. INTSTRUCTIONS SAY UNIT WILL PROMPT BUT NOTHING HAPPENS. IS THERE SOMETHING ELSE...


Yes!!! Please charge the unit overnight. You didn't say what model you have. If it's a 2xx series, plug in the charger and move the on/off switch momentarily to the left until you see the screen say charging. Set the unit down and the screen will go off. If you touch the screen again, it will come on. After charging is done, when you touch the screen it will say charging is complete. Remove the charger. If its' a 3xx or 6xx product, hold down the on/off power button until you get the charge screen.

Did you charge the unit over night? When they are brand new, the batteries are not always charged. See if the lights and screen come on when it is plugged into the charger. If so let it charge over night and try turning it on again. Otherwise, you should probably return the unit.
