Hi Rubedog,

It sounds like your Backlighting has gone out. Look at the LCD screen at an angle in light while it is playing sound and see if you can see graphics working. If so, your backlight is out. You will need to send it in to Sony (lowest cost) contact them at . If you do not qualify with them under warranty Click on the "repair Directory" at the bottom of this screen. Look up "Video Game Consoles" in the directory and pick you out a good Playtstation Repair shop.

My machine is konica minolta c252 my touch screen dont show any thing and havent light its hust black screen and i changed cable also not fixed pleas any one can help what is way for solve

Black Screen
When you turn the machine ON, if there is no display on the control screen and also there is no sound of warming up, then the problem is with the Print Conrol Board, (Main Mother Board) replace it and your problem is solved.Before doing that you can try replacing the RAMs.
Secondly, If you hear machine's normal warming up rotation sound and there is no display on the screen then please check the Display Cable, white VGA like cable connected with the control panel.Check, it may be loose or not properly connected.

Dont know how to turn sound on and off

if you are not getting the sound then try checking the sound button on the right bottom side of the screen that has been put on "mute" or not...
check for the speaker power button or the volume button on the speakers itself...
also try uninstalling & reinstalling the sound drivers...

Screen black no sound or picture with line in center

this is a common problem,the vertical hold has been damaged.dont leave the teli. on,the white line will burn the middle of the screen and leave a black mark. You need a new integrated circuit(i.c.) for vertical hold.
