Screen is black except briefly blue upon power on or putting source on "VGA"
I cannot display the on screen menu in any source mode. I have two sources hooked up from my cable box and also a DVD player and nothing appears on screen, with two exceptions. When I cycle the source to "VGA" the screen is briefly blue, as in no signal. Secondly, a blue screen is briefly displayed a few moments after the system is powered on. Then the screen goes black again. Any ideas? TIA, Dave

Hi there , if you can activate menu on screen , then try to change the video input source to something like VGA , and be sure that You've connected some video source with VGA cable prior to this. Sometime when there is no input signal (especially digital like HDMI) it flashes like that. Hope this helps .Cheers.
It depends on what type of connection you are using. If you are using a VGA (analog) cable then you need to select that mode on your monitor menu. If you are using a DVI (digital) cable then you need to choose that mode on you monitor menu.
Try a reset of the display device or hit the menu button to get a display on the screen- If you get a full picture that way then you have some setting set wrong. It could also be a PIP- picture in picture mode that you only have one source put into the TV rather than two.
first try entering VGA mode in the startup menu. u can get the startup menu by pressing the F8 key immediately after the POST screen. if the screen stabilizes try changing the resolution to 1024 by 768 which should work in normal mode. if that doesnt work then the monitors internal bulbs may be burnt. an electrician may fix this problem for you.
When you power up the computer Press and hold F8 key 5 to 6 times untill you see windows logo then you can see safe mode and other menu enter in enable vga mode then go to start menu->control panel->display ->property ->settings . change screen resolution to 1024*768 then apply and ok. Then check . Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.
Pressing the f8 key doesn't work either? This should boot the laptop to safe mode, if it doesn't then check the memory cards before you do anything else, try to get somebody with the same type of memory card to lend it to you. If that doesn't work, then your HDD is corrupted, and to re-install Windows.
there is a burned-in spot on the polerizer light filter for the blue lcd. it makes sure the light is blue coming through, that's why it is black on a blue screen, and yellow when the red and green are the only light showing through. it needs to be replaced. pat # PFiLW0213CEZZ.
firstly stop turning it off and on because you will blow something else like a power board then it will be a big paper weight. next get a torch and when it is powered on and supposed to be showing images, shine the torch at the screen. if you can see everything then you have a broken backlight or problem with your backlight and connections. they cost approx £15 and a little labour, its not a big job. you may be able to do it yourself if you can get hold of a service manual.
Safe Mode (SAFEBOOT_OPTION=Minimal): This option uses a minimal set of device drivers and services to start Windows.
Safe Mode with Networking (SAFEBOOT_OPTION=Network): This option uses a minimal set of device drivers and services to start Windows together with the drivers that you must have to load networking.
Safe Mode with Command Prompt (SAFEBOOT_OPTION=Minimal(AlternateShell)): This option is the same as Safe mode, except that Cmd.exe starts instead of Windows Explorer.
Enable VGA Mode: This option starts Windows in 640 x 480 mode by using the current video driver (not Vga.sys). This mode is useful if the display is configured for a setting that the monitor cannot display.
