Try removing the powercord from the printer and powering it back on- you may have had a small surge that caused a glitch in the printer itself.

Thanks for using FixYa. As you have already tried the reset procedure so to check what has gone bad you’ll have to open the back of the unit and check the backlight inverter board. The inverter is the power supply source for the backlights. If that’s the issue then it’s always better to replace the inverter board completely just to avoid any future issues. If not then check the power supply board however, it seems to be the inverter board as the sound is still working fine.Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

LG Renoir wont turn on

Hmmm, I have the same problem as well. I have just recently exchanged my LG renoir for another one with my buisness contract insurance due to the previous handset's camera not working.
I have had this new one for about 4 days and everything was fine until last night. I sent a text and looked at my phone and it just went black. The backlight still on, the green button, the menu and the red one all light up. Even when I take the battery in and out, it just goes to the lights, if im lucky, i would see the logo LG then it goes back to just all the backlights on. I am wondering if I can reset the phone but I get my upgrade in April. To be honest, I cannot wait.

Fdp2275w Gateway lcd monitor won't turn on. comes on for a second then goes black

Ok, I just got one last night, and it took a while to open the bugger. Why put screws when there are so many hidden clips to carefully pop? My poor Craftsman club card will never be the same! But, I digest...

There were two bad capacitors, the first and probably the main culprit was a 1000uF 25volt cap that had expanded and vented. I also found a 680uF 25volt cap that started to expand, and when tested it was low, about 550uF.

If you are so inclined, these can be obtained by mailorder (I use Parts Express), but Radio Shack parts can be used in a pinch, just expect to go back in there eventually. I didn't have the 105 degree low ESR caps, so I used regular ones and I had the monitor up and running in aobut 90 mins.

Check for any capacitors that are expanded at the top. Look for a dome shape or feel with your finger, it should be completely flat. Or look for the rubber bottom pushing out where it goes into the board. This is the third monitor I have repaired in the last six months, and each one needed one or two capacitors to fix a dark back-light problem.

A 4 flash indicates you have a backlight problem. Either the backlight inverter boards have failed or you have a backlight that has failed in the LCD panel. You will need a technician to check the set to determine which is the problem.
