I am thinking the Hard drive might be dead. It is something that can be easily removed from the possible problems via Firewire the iMac to another Mac or option boot to a OSX Install disc and run Disc Utility repair. If that is good then you quite possibly have a hardware problem.

Simple fix try this first - be sure the power cord is plugged into the back securely. Check the A/c outlet or power strip for voltage.
Next simple fix: Pull out the plug, let the computer sit over night. Before plugging back in, hold the power switch on for about 5 seconds. Plug in and try to restart.
Otherwise the problem is more complex: Try this site:

I know this is really simple, but are you turning it on using the power button on the lower left back of the computer?

Fix samsung lcd screen not turning on. Sound works.

You have a an intermittent anomaly - nasty situation to fix for obvious reasons. You can live with it and wait till sucker finally goes for good.

Your problem lies with no backlighting (inverter board) or the T con board responsible for the images you see on the screen.

You are on the right track because caps and resistors can have dual personalities - both are also heat sensitive. Solid state devices either work or do not work - period.

Or you might have a hair line crack on a board. Using a small directional fan and giving the respective board the mother of all blow jobs you can perhaps localize the heat issue. Good luck.

Why doesn't the touch screen work on my ipod touch 4th generation?

By reset you mean holding the home and power button down? If so, it sure sounds like it is the digitizer. If you are thinking about replacing it yourself, I would consider doing some research because these aren't fun to fix or easy. The screens never seem to sit right. In most cases, the LCD and digitizer come together as one piece. Pricing starts around 30 dollars. Also, check to see if there are any recalls because apple would replace it for free. If you need any further assistance, feel free to ask!

Have a 42LB1DR, no picture or sound, just a light blue screen. When I turn it on or off there is an usual delay.

I have the same TV. Just take a deep breath and listen. My TV stopped so I did much research and came to the conclusion that there are 5 capacitors that were causing the problem. I did it myself for $15.00. I don't want to tell you how to do it because of liability. Do a lot of research on the internet and also LG will send you schematics on the internet. I am currently having a problem of my TV coming on at random times, so I am now in the process of figuring that one out. Don't be discouraged. I like my TV. Sometimes these things can be frustrating but remember when it was so much simpler. No need to cuss and get angry. God bless you and good researching.
