    I also have a blue glow, going to check the warranty when I get home. I am alomost positive I purchase an extension. Sounds like this might be common.

I need to know if my computer is still under warranty. For some time now it has a pink screen on it. This varies from a worm like effect to a carbon type smudge. It apparentely is a screen defect as when...

Hi s_anderson,

I think I understand the question, which is based on a defective screen, the questions are

1) Is your machine under warranty.

a) Typically you have 1 to 3 months from the dealer that you purchased it from ****Smith from the date on the invoice. You have usually 1 year warranty from Acer.

2) Who should you contact regarding the problem?

a) I'd look at the invoice date first and see if it falls within the 1-3 months, then contact the dealer, 1 year then contact Acer, and if it's over 1 year old, then contact a repair person to repair it. I might add that even if it's older than 1 year, I'd call Acer support to question to see if they can resolve the problem over the phone, and if not, ask them to suggest a technian that you can trust.

Good Luck

Sony kdl-46xbr4 Black Horizontal Bands When I First Turn on TV

I had the exact same problem with the Sony KDL46XBR4. The problem started 11 months after I purchased the TV (Dec 2007). Luckily I placed the call to Sony just before the 1 year warranty expired and they replaced the entire front panel which is basically the whole TV except for the stand and the plastic frame. Last month the same issue started happening again (5 months since the repair). I called Sony and they say they have a 90 day warranty on the replacement part so I would need to pay out of my own pocket to first have the problem diagnosed (it's the EXACT same problem!) and then pay to have the repair done since the warranty has expired. I asked how much the front panel costs and it's $1,400! I paid $2,100 for the TV when I purchased it. Interestingly, at the time that part was back-ordered.....hmmmm, I wonder why??? Perhaps a recall is warranted here (no pun intended). Needless to say, I have sworn off Sony products due to their lack of support for this issue.

Yellow-green spot in center of screen

Defective light engine. Contact Sony support. They warrantied a lot of these sets even after the warranty had expired because of so many going bad after 3-4 yrs. Have the complete model and serial number ready when you call them.

Vertical lines on my 40 inch lcd mitsubishi hdtv 1080

Similar problem with an eleven and a half month old LT-40148. Approx. 1 inch vertical banding line on left side of screen on all inputs. After about two weeks, same problem on the right side of the screen.

Fortunately this occurred two weeks prior to the one year warranty expiring.

Called Mits customer service and they referred me to an authorized service center who I happened to have dealt with before.

They picked up the set. The front panel (LCD screen ) had to be replaced. Set was gone for two weeks as parts were not in stock. There was no charge. I hope this screen last more than a year.

Blue Screen on Dell Vostro 1400

OK you can try a couple of things.

1. On booting the Laptop, hold down F8 key, then choose "Last known Good Configuration". Windows may now start correctly.

2. If this doesn't work, do the same, but choose "Boot into Safe Mode"

If neither works you may have to repair Windows...

Blue "Haze" at top of screen

My VPL-HS51 just started doing the same thing. There's a lot of similar reports out there and they all end up at the same bottom line - the problem is due to a design defect in the 'prism block' (LCD panel) and the only option, other than to throw it away or sell it for parts, is to pay Sony about $2300.00 to fix it. Good luck!
