Black blob on nano screen

Something must have smushed the screen of my nano while it was in my backpack. It works, but a black blob is hiding about half of what's on the screen. Any fix or do I have to replace it (or use it blindly)? THANKS!

Sorry to say, but there's really no viable way to repair a cracked/broken LCD screen, you'll just have to fly blind for the time being.

However, Apple is usually pretty diligent with these kinds of problems, and you can probably get a replacement (for a fee) No guarantees though, good luck!

p.s. If you feel like you're pretty proficient with electronics, you can check here for info on DIY replacement parts.

The screen is cracked and that is why you see black blobs. Probably the hard disk is also broken.

I have a Sony lcd data projector- VPL-SC50.. There is a big black blob in the middle, with other lines near the edges. And the blob is growing larger now. But it does not look like a burn out, it looks...


Normally a "blob" on an LCD is a delamination of one or more of the LCD panels. But, they are usually not black. You may have a poor ribbon cable connection from the main board to the LCD panels....there is a ribbon connection to each of the Red, Green and Blue panels. It's either that or a main board failure, but certainly soemthing you want the factory or other authorized service center to check out.

Good luck.

The problelm is a defective vertical deflection system. Could be the amplifier, vertical output driver or whole printed board that supports the vertical deflection activity. It is considered to be a serious failure.

Black blob appears on display screen and the background is white


This usually means that the liquid crystal has been broken in that section. Usually caused by something poking or pressing on that section of the screen. The only solution is to have it repaired or replace the camera. I'd get an estimate from an authorized repair shop or Samsung directly, and then weigh the options against buying a new camera, buying a working used one, or paying for the repair.
