Most likely the issue is power related with the surface mount components on the board. it can be repaired. i have had luck with technicians on ebay that do this type of work. they have the equipment to repair the actual board and in most cases it runs 80-150 depending on the issue. try checking that out before you do a board replacement. in most cases the guys that do the work do not charge for the work if the board is non-repairable, i believe they just charge a small shipping/diagnostic fee. most i have seen are about 25 dollars for the fee. well worth it.

Good Luck!

Samsung LN46C600F3F has audio but no video


Similar thing had happened with me. Solution: Probability: 1 Start any familiar movie on DVD/Blueray, and press pause, now go near tv and flash torch light on and off on screen. you will come to identify- 'that familiar scene' paused, of course very faint and un-lit. If you can see faint image then cause of problem is that choke coil giving power to drinking-straw like tubelight is burnt. (Do you remember 4feet fluorescent tubelight with a very heavy metal encased five inch block sitting in the middle?) that block is choke coil. LCD TVs have similar tiny slim tube rods inside with electronic choke)

Makes ticking sounds and wont work


The ticking noise is either something touching the fan in the Fan Assembly; or the Harddrive has gone bad.

My thoughts?

Harddrive

Samsung n145 will not power up


Related to a Samsung Np-n145 Notebook PC:

Plug the laptop into power for 24 hours. See if the Battery charges up.

Next test, or have tested, the AC adapter (Charger) See if it is putting out 19 Volts -> DC.
Know someone with a multimeter? I can guide you in testing.

AC adapter is good? Things go downhill rapidly here.
The next problem could be a DC Power Jack.

The DC Power jack is the jack on the laptop, that you plug the AC adapter into,

1) The DC Power jack may be broken
2) The solder joints holding it to the motherboard may be cracked. Poor connection to motherboard.

The DC Power jack can be replaced, or it's solder joints re-soldered.

DC Power jack proves to be okay?

Power MOSFET's have gone bad. The next link, is an article that deals with bad Power MOSFET's in an HP laptop. Used for an example,

Let's hope it's a bad AC adapter

Tv went black no sound either. TV only five years old,is there anything i can do? Thanks James


Cannot offer solution but my mine has also gone bad.  At first a black shadow appeared on the left side of the screen.  Took it to the authorized service center.  they kept it a few days, said nothing could be done.  Used it anyway for the next 5 years when suddenly it went black (or sometimes blue) after working perfectly for the first 5 minutes. A sharp rap next to the right speaker fixed it a few times, but no more.  Good luck.

I shut down the laptop at once and i turned it on immediately.so only power light is on and the computer is not working.only black screen is seen.


Try this :

1. unplug the ac adapter and remove the battery .
2. press and hold power button for a minute
3. now put the battery back and plug in ac adapter
4. turn on the laptop now

it should work.

if not, try removing hard drive and memory modules then reinstall them back.

if the issue persists, your motherbord has gone bad.

Compaq Evo N600c Laptop over 5 years old but has been working fine. About 2 months ago the screen went dark (bad lamp?) so been using an external monitor. Turned it on this morning and it started to boot...


Do you see any lights on the laptop that are on? If you see any lights and only a black screen, then more than likely your video chip on the motherboard has gone out. Some local shops might be able to replace the motherboard it might be cheaper than buying a new laptop. Good luck

Screen went black...rebooted, computer seems to


Remove the battery and disconnect the power adapter for about a minute.

connect only the AC then boot it back up. If you can see the Compaq splash screen and still unable to load Windows, re install OS.

If you could not see the splash screen, too bad it could be a motherboard issue,

Hope this helps.

No picture, good audio. Replaced motherboard...


I think I may finally have the answer for the "black screen of death" for the 42" Polaroid LCD televisions. I was having the same issue with the screen going black after a couple minutes of being on. I would shut it down then turn it back on and it would work again for 5-10 minutes. On the "power board" which is the board on top, there is a little red light that turns on when the screen would go black. above that there are 4 little switches, the lower on says BURN. I simply switched that over and the television has been working for 2 days for 8 hours + each day. Hope this help. Let me know

Color problem


Check the cables connected to the back of the projector. reinsert the cables a few times to get a good contact. Jiggle the connection at the projector to see if there is a bad connection, do this while viewing the image on the screen. If everything is good and no response to the connections, It might be the main/input board is bad and will need replacement.
