    My son put in a game and the screen is blank and the game won't come on. We've tried taking the battery out and putting it back in to no avail, in addition to turing it off and on. Any other suggestions? Thank you.

3 year old 42in LG LCD TV scrren went blank

You will either have a fault with the inverter board which drives the backlights or a faulty backlight in the screen. If the problem is a backlight then a replacement screen is the only cure. One or the other is breaking down after it has been opn for a certain period of time, have an engineer call out & check with a tester if it is a screen problem.

My sons PSP isnt working right. He says he didnt drop it but who knows. It will turn on,make sounds, and I can hear it scrolling when I scroll but the screen is blank.The screen does light up a little but...

There may have been shock inflicted on the PSP causing it to break the LCD which is fairly easy to do as they are fragile. If you are courageous you can buy a new LCD screen for it of the internet then open the PSP and swap the LCD screens.

Monitor going black

HP's are known for bad capacitors in the power supply.
Replacing them is simple if you know how..not so simple if you don't.
Try your local TV repair centre. It should not cost alot to have the capacitors replaced.

Hope it helps =)
