    Hello BMW Rider, Hmmmm.... That's what I was afraid of, I would ask then, have I shortened the overall life of the unit? You see,I have damaged my spinal cord and my "new" life (unfortunately) revolves around the T.V. I have been alot more aware of not leaving the unit on when not watching. One tech told me that leaving a "cranked up" snow screen may disperse the pixels. That doesn't appear to do anything. although my F.U. churs hop extended warranty ($250.) won't (or wouldn't) cover repair. Thank-you very much for taking your time to read. Kind Regards, Slipdisceddy

    Hello Larry, Thank-you-Yes! I am indeed relieved. With the current life situation, a replacement / expensive repair is out of the question. Outside of the burn,( yep, white screen is the most severe) It is a pretty good unit for the money. I have had other screens ,and I think my dream set is (the most expensive) the biggest Mitsubishi or Toshiba avaliable. I'll keep playing the 6/49! Anyway, Thanks again for sharing your knowledge.....ANY questions regarding billiard tables, I'm your man! Happy Holidays, Regards, Ed

    P.S. May I ask one more question? I've long since disconnected it, is a playstation one harmful to the set......I've been told yes/no, .....Your opinion or experience again very much appreciated. Slipdisceddy

Hi, no it cannot be repaired for a reasonable cost there are 3 tubes in your tv set, red,green & blue. Of course they are all fed the image so they all have the burn image on them, only recourse is to replace all 3 tubes, very expensive to do.
The problem will not get worse
The damage of course is permanent.
Hope this answers your questions, if not feel free to ask me more, Happy Holidays, .

    Eddy, the overall life expectancy of the rest of the set has not changed or been damaged. The tubes have a special paint on the inside of the glass kind of the same as a regular frosted 100 watt light bulb, some of that paint has been burned off by the image that was left in one place for a long time, that you can never get back but I had a set (53" Hitachi) that had the same thing happen to it and we used it for 5 years(kind of a pain in the A** when an all white scene came on) and then I gave it away and as far as I know it`s still running. Your not going to hurt it anymore than it is so whatever your looking at now is as bad as it will get, hope this gives you a little piece of mind, Larry

Dim display on Toshiba Satellite 4090XDVD notebook


The backlight CCFL lamp provides the lighting for the LCD screen. If you have already adjusted the brightness to the max. setting and it is still dim, it means the CCFL lamp is is nearly worn out. To determine if you have a LCD screen or video card problem, read this and follow the instructions. Defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom: Screen flashs on red/pink and off. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering with dim display or appear black. Picture flickering on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp. Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case. The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills. Check out www.lcdparts.net for parts, repair service and DIY info.

The backlight on my toshiba laptop burned out would like to get it going again.


If you see a dim image on the LCD screen it means you have a backlight problem.
Connect an external monitor to the laptop and power it up, if you see a clear image on an external monitor, this means your video card is OK.

Hi im michael i have a old sony projection screen 10 years old or more. i believe its a trinitron.the picture comes on for awhile then goes out and comes back on just a minute later


Hi Michael,

If you were to watch a DVD using a different input than the cable/satellite input, does the image also fade in and out? When the image disappears, are you able to view the TV's onscreen menu or does it disappear too? When the image comes back, does it look fine and is the brightness the same?
