Hello Chris,

You have a monitor with a common problem. After a few years some LCD monitors will blow a power supply. The problem is caused by parts called capacitors overheating in the confined space of he monitor. If you are good at electronics repair/soldering you can usually fix he problem. Check out a few pictures on my web site www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm You can take the back cover off your monitor and look for the bad parts, replace any that look like the pictues and your monitor should work fine. The capacitors do need to be installed with the correct + and - connections, note the strip on the old one and insert the new one the same way. If you don't want to try the repair yourself we offer a repair service for $35 plus shipping. I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

Picture has gone very dark will not adjust brighter


Could be your backlights are bad. Don't know how old your set is. May check your backlight setting up and down to see if it changes the brightness. Not a cheap fix at repair shop. You can order online and change yourself with the help of you tube videos.

Picture shuts off


Is there a dark patch when you see the picture, easiest way to check is on the tv tuner with no cable attached, this way you have a grey static screen, if there is a darkness across the screen when it lights for that breif moment, then it may have a broken backlight tube. Had the same problem with my 32" LG.

How do I fix a screen thats has gone dark


Ths is usually the backlight and we commonly see failed capacitors as the cause. Take it to a qualified repair facility as mis-repair can result in fire and/or an electrocution hazard.

Dell Latituse D600 display goes dark


Hello,

The picture board on your monitor is faulty or bad, since it goes black after few seconds, it means the picture board of your laptop has developed fault.

The best thing for you to do now is to take the laptop to a local repairer within your vicinity to help with the replacement of the picture board because the fault is not something you can fix yourself. in order not to complicate issues.

Take care.

Your problem is usually caused by a bad power supply. You should be able to do the repair yourself, if just requires replacing 6 capacitors on the power supply board. Here is a link to a repair guide that shows how to disassemble the monitor and repair the power supply board.

Picture goes off after a few minutes but sound remains. what is the problem?


Hi,

There are a number reasons why this might happen:
  • The backlight has gone (Find a dark place and shine a torch into the screen and see if you can see an image in the background, if you see an image then the backlight has gone) - Needs a new backlight (Engineer to remove and fit) or have a new panel fitted.
  • The panel has died - Need a new panel
  • A cable has worked itself loose or is broken
  • The inverter has gone - Need new inverter
  • The driver board is faulty
Thanks

Wont turn on It won't get past the start up page. It goes black


Hi,
There are approx 6 reasons why this might happen:
  1. The backlight has gone (Find a dark place and shine a torch into the screen and see if you can see an image in the background, if you see an image then the backlight has gone) - Needs a new backlight (Engineer to remove and fit) or have a new panel fitted.
  2. The panel has died - Need a new panel
  3. A cable has worked itself loose or is broken
  4. The inverter has gone - Need new inverter
  5. Long shot, the bios has got corrupted - Engineer could re-flash the bios
  6. Long shot, Mainboard onboard graphics has gone - Need new mainboard

My personal opinion is that the backlight or inverter has gone - Either way it needs to be opened up to repair it, consult a service centre and get a quote or repair it yourself if your up for it.

Thanks

L13V36 Dark Screen, picture can be seen in bright light.


If the backlight lights up for a second it's probably fine - It lay odds on the display inverter in the screen. Actually finding parts for anything made by gateway may be difficult, however. They do not sell spare parts. Considering the size of the LCD i bet it would almost exceed the replacement cost of the screen to repair it

Monitor picture goes extremely dark


sounds like the backlight is defective. You can probably get a new backlight online if your comfortable taking apart sensitive electronic equipment BUT you must be very very carefull and handle the lcd with care as you can easyly damage it. Oh one more thing the power supply may also be defective for the backlight. I would contact the manufacture to see about the repair or replacement parts as they should be listed in your operators manual. Good Luck
