Compaq laptop green pink screen pixalted


One of the things is to hook it to another monitor and see if that still happens. If it does not then it is most likely the screen on the laptop. Not to worry though it could be the cable that connects the laptop motherboard to the screen. When you open and close the lid, it flexes the cable and the little wires in can break. The cable is not cheap though. One way to test this is to change how far the lid opens by flexing it open and closed to see if the screen changes. If it does then it is that cable.

No display at power up


Lean the display as far back as you can and see if you can see the start up screen "shadowed" across the screen. If you can then the backlight burned out and you need to replace it. Sometimes a reall bright flashlight will help you see whatever's on the screen if the light burned out. Just hold the light up as close as reasonably possible to the screen and the icons and stuff should be visible.
Another thing you can try is toggling the onboard/external video by pressing F4.

Black line down right side of screen


turn off laptop.
press and hold on the D then press Power button.
during the LCD BIST test check if the black line down right side of the screen is visible. if yes LCD needs to be replaced. if not connect your laptop to an external monitor check if the black line display appears to the ext monitor, if yes uninstall / reinstall video driver if fails replace video card or if it is built in replace motherboard.

if no ext monitor available then run PSA (press and hold Fn key then press Power button)

check if the black line is visible. Check also in BIOS is black line is visible, if yes then uninstall reinstall first the video driver if fails replace LCD.

Connect broken laptop screen to external monitor


Suggestion- on my toshiba fn-f5 switches display modes, but to remove display connectors, you may have messed up your keyboard ribbon cable connection. it probably has a small sliding lock to hold it in place- if the lock isn't tight, your keyboard may not be recognized, which could mess up your display. Also, make sure your battery is charged and/or your power supply to your laptop is connected. hope this helps!

Use the tilt adjustment in the menu system or if that doesn't go far enough, move the metallic object, (loudspeaker etc) further away from the screen.

Blackberry lcd screen replacement instructions


This sounds like you have a broken lcd screen. If you feel comfortable with replacing the screen you can purchase a new screen off ebay.
If you are not comfortable I would recommend cellulardr.com they sound pretty reasonable as far as price goes.

I hope this helps

Sanyo Projector==No signal


Hi, Perhaps you can try lowering the screen resolution first of the laptop before plugging in the projector and then the Fn + F8. Thereafter, gradually increase the screen resolution until projector stops displaying. The idea is that your current screen resolution maybe too much for the projector to handle. This of course is assuming that there is no hardware problem with the projector. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
