Ok, I just solved this issue. I have had the issue for a while and called GE and they told me they would give me a discount replacement at $125, when new it is less then $100. SO GE ITS NOT HAPPENING!!! Well I decided to fix it my self. 1st: Take out all the screws (7 total) one is hidden under the av out cover. Make sure u mark all the longer screw heads and location with a marker so you know where they go. There were only to sizes so if you mark the longer ones you should be ok. 2nd slowly pull the back of the camera back (BUT BE CAREFULL, do not pull to far there are wires from the LCD and buttons to the camera.) Now there is a little tab on the main board holding the wires from the LCD to the camera. Flip it up and remove the LCD wires. After you do that push the LCD wires back in and flip the tab back down. Be careful not to damage wires or tab. Put case back together, put screws in where they go, and wallah. Your camera should work. If not try again, and make sure your properly putting wires in. If it doesn't work email me I will be making YouTube video for this soon. REMEMBER TRY AT YOUR OWN RISK!!! I AM NOT RESPONSABLE FOR ANY DAMAGE YOU CAUSE!!!
If the light stays on for longer than about 20 seconds, try moving the lid back and forth, try positioning it in every possible way. If you get an image, even for a second, you need a new LCD cable. If nothing happens, try to get your hands on an external monitor. Plug that bad boy in, if you get the image, you need either a new LCD cable or a new LCD screen. If still nothing happens, then you probably need a new motherboard.
Before you go buying a new MB/LCD/LCD cable, which can be rather costly, open up the back and make sure the RAM is seated properly, sometimes something can jar RAM sticks loose.
I posted to your problem with a similar one. I was able to get my PS3 to work by:
1.) Powering down both the PS3 and ViewSonic LCD
2.) Unplugging the power cables to both PS3 and LCD
3.) Waiting at least 10 or more seconds
4.) Plugging in the power cables to both PS3 and LCD
5.) Turning on the ViewSonic LCD
6.) Turning on the PS3 and holding down the power button until the beep
After this sequence I heard the bootup audio and the menu appeared on the screen- which detected the HDMI connection to my LCD.
Very odd.. I've had my PS3 in the same place for months and just today this happened.
Try to plug in an external monitor on laptop to check if there is a problem with your LCD.
Plug in the external monitor then boot the computer. If still nothing happens try removing the battery and the adapter, let it rest for a minute then plug in only the adapter and try to boot up with out the battery.
You will have to open the unit up and repair whatever broke.
When this has happened in the past to less complex remotes, I have found that usually the oscillator chip has broken off of the circuit board, but whatever it is will have to be resoldered back into its original position.
If you have never worked on electronics before, you will have to take it to a repair shop, send it to the manufacturer, have a knowledgeable friend repair it or buy a new one.
Hook up a different monitor and set resolution to no higher than 1024 x 768. Samsung monitor will then work fine. It appears that something fails in the monitor and it will no longer support anything higher than this.
