White screen appears at start up

A laptop suffering from a blank screen can fully impede all computer productivity, but fortunately there are a number of common problems that you can swiftly troubleshoot for in your own home, even if you have no prior computer troubleshooting experience. The power adapter, monitor brightness settings, inverter cable or otherwise may all be possible causes for your screen's problems, but all can be repaired with only a Phillips screwdriver and a potential replacement screen.

Check the power adapter of the laptop and ensure that it is still properly plugged into the back of the machine. Check the monitor brightness settings for your screen. There are dedicated monitor brightness keys on the keyboard, typically located just above the numeric keys. If the brightness has accidentally been turned all the way down, this will result in a screen that appears completely dark or blank. Turn the brightness up. Open up your display to check on the backlight's functioning. Remove the screws that run around the bezel, or perimeter, of your laptop's screen. Use a Phillips screwdriver. Pull the bezel carefully off the display, starting at one corner and working around the bezel until it is completely detached. Find the inverter board, which will now be visible with the bezel removed. It lies at the bottom of the screen. A black inverter cable connects into this board via a connector that lies atop the board. This cable is instrumental to the operation of the screen's backlight, so if the cable has come loose, then the backlight will fail to function and the screen will be dark and blank. Reconnect the inverter cable into the connector by inserting it and then snapping the connector down into the flat, "locked" position, which will put it parallel to the inverter board. Consider full replacement of the screen if the inverter cable fix does not restore the screen's proper operating state. Ensure the inverter cable is disconnected, then remove the metal brackets on either side of the screen. These brackets are held in place with two screws that must be removed with your Phillips screwdriver. Pull the laptop's screen slowly up and out. Slide in the replacement screen, then restore the screen brackets and reconnect the inverter cable. Slide the bezel back into place over the display and replace the bezel screws. Hope this helps

I have a phillips go gear MP3 player and when i turn it on it freezes only the words www.phillips/ screens shows. how to i fix this?


Your GoGear is freezing because there is an error in the operating system and can be fixed by resetting the device. Resetting the GoGear is similar to rebooting your computer. You will not lose any of the data uploaded to the device. To reset the GoGear, press the "Reset" button located on the left of the device. The screen will go blank for a few seconds and then turn back on.

If the GoGear freezes after uploading a file to the device or if one song or sound file freezes the device each time you play it, the file is likely corrupt and needs to be removed from the GoGear. Connect the GoGear to a computer and delete the file from the device.

Screen is blank, can't turn odff


Try taking the battery out and put it back in, all you need is a small phillips screw driver. Don't worry, nothing will fall out or break, it is set up to be able to do this.
If that don't work, I suggest you get in touch with manufacturer.

Good Luck
