    I have the identical problem; the canon logo appears when camera is turned on but then fades to black. I can still take photos and download them. If it is the backlight (as the soultion offered) can this be fixed by me? Thanx!

Sounds like your backlight may be out, unless you're still able to see a faint image when the LCD is "black"...?

If you can still see a faint image of what your camera is pointed at, I would assume your LCD is bad. In which case you could purchase a new one on for ~$60 or have them do it for you for ~$85.

Vaio LCD problem

Periods.......Nice little items because they denote the End of a sentence.
See how this works?

"I have a vgn cs36gj, I was working with it, suddenly the LCD became pale black, I connected it to external monitor and it has a picture, sometimes after turning on for 30 minutes LCD start working normally, but after turning off and disconnecting power when I turn it on, it only shows a pale black picture, you know it is on but only black!"

Now you try it.........

"I have a vgn cs36gj. I was working with it, suddenly the LCD became pale black.
I connected it to external monitor and it has a picture."

Okay, I got that part.........

"sometimes after turning on for 30 minutes LCD start working normally, but after turning off and disconnecting power when I turn it on, it only shows a pale black picture, you know it is on but only black!"

Laptop LCD?
External monitor LCD?
Man on the moon LCD?

1) If the external monitor LCD goes 'pale black', the problem is the graphics chipset.
This I do not believe

2) If the laptop LCD goes pale black, this I believe.

When a press alt+tab the monitor has no picture but it still on and no picture like all black

Try connecting the monitor to another computer to see if this problem is also on this computer, if so then the fault is the monitor, if not then the fault is the video card in the other computer.
If the LCD monitor has a faint Windows image, then the LCD monitor has a back-light problem and it could have a faulty inverter board or a faulty CCFL lamp.

Describe your Dell E173FP 17" LCD Monitor Problem The monitor seems to be turning itself repeatedly on and off. No picture is ever seen, the screen stays black with a slight flicker.

Sounds like the monitor is cycling power.
Try plugging the monitor into a different power socket. Try not to use the same power bar as your computer

My lcd monitor loses the picture. it is still on

Sounds like the bulb in your LCD screen is going bad, or the LCD inverter or cable is going bad.

If moving the screen back and forth causes the LCD screen to show a picture normally, but intermittently, then the LCD cable is probably bad.

Blank Screen..Will not power off

Have you checked your video source to ensure that this isn't a problem with your PC or whatever you're displaying on it? Try using a different display and see what happens. Try putting this LCD on a different PC and see what happens. If indeed it is this screen then it could be something as simple as a loose cable. Start simple and work from there.
