If hitting any key on the keyboard still gives a black screen then your computer has probably crashed, I suggest a restart. If during restart you only get a black screen (no apple logo, especially if no startup chime) then you may be experiencing a hardware issue, take it do your local repair agent to have a look at. If after restart the screen goes black after the apple logo was shown during boot, then you may have a corruption of your operating system and may need to try some recovery.

A good thing to do before trying any recovery/reinstall techniques is to backup your mac data. A good way to do that is to power on, when you hear the startup chime. press the T key. This will put the computer into target disk mode and will allow you to access the hard disk like its an external portable hard disk.

Beyond that I would need more information to help you further, like model of laptop, version of operating system if you know it.

Try holding the shift key when restarting the computer until it is all the way up. It would show safe mode. release the key. Basically it would not load 3rd party items to load. If it works find the offending program. Also go to the library and trash the " ". Please include your OS version. Currently it is 10.9.3.

SOURCE: when turned on screen lights up with apple logo

reboot while holding the option key down. It should show you available hard drives from which you can startup.
Choose the drive and then press return or enter.
Then restart.
If nothing happens, turn off the laptop and insert your Mac OS disk and then reboot while holding down the C key.
The computer will load the system on the disc instead of your hard drive. Then instead of reinstalling the system software, look at the top menu and find the Disk Utilities program and run a repair on your hard drive.
Then reboot without the disk in the drive.

My IPad is stuck with the apple logo on a black screen while resetting to factory settings. No more movement now. What to do?

Don't forget to plug in the power. And again, press home button and on / off switch, till it switches off. Then press the on / off button, till the Apple logo comes back, then release the button. It can take up to a minute, before the screen comes on.

Hit my app, screen goes black

Depending on the App the chance that it simply is a hung app or an app which hasn't been updated to the latest iOS is great.

To see if it is a hung app you can do the 4 finger swipe up, or double click the home button at the bottom of the screen and see if you can find the app in the running app menu. If it is running close it and try to reopen the app. This may resolve the issue.

If this does not however try to restart the iPad by pushing the power button in the top right of the screen for a few seconds until the red "slide to power off" button appears. Then swipe to turn it off and let it sit for about 30-60 seconds.

Then push the power button again to turn the iPad on. (You will see the Apple logo at the center of the screen when it turns on again) Now try your App again.

If this still hasn't resolved the issue please contact the App Manufacturer ( you can find the information in the iTunes App Store and request a Support Ticket for them to help you out ).

I hope this helped you.

Ipod won't turn on screen is black

May be the battery id dead.
Connect your ipod to computer and press and hold the middle and menu button together until you get an apple logo on the screen.
Let go the buttons as soon as apple logo appears on the screen. In most of the cases, that fix the issue.
In case you wont get apple logo on the screen, then it's a hardware problem. Call AppleCare at 1800-275-2273 in that case
Hope that answers your question

Iphone only see apple logo and itunes logo in a dark screen after

If it got wet, you can bring it to any Apple Store. Nine times out of ten they will replace it for $150 to $200 dollars. Unless they determine it is a manufacturers defect and you are still under warranty, then you want have to pay anything. they will usually just replace it for you.
Otherwise, you may have to pay up to $200 for a replacement.
Hope this helps...Let me know...
