My tv has a black screen and not images but the audio works fine


Shine a flashlight from the back of the screen, if you see and image your backlight is burned out, if no image you have more serious issues.

Why won't it turn on?


While it is on, shine a bright flashlight on an angle across the surface away from you. Can you see any faint images on the screen. If yes, then possibly the back lit lamp / board needs to be replaced.

You need to perform the flashlight test. Turn off the lights in the room, turn the TV on, take a bright flashlight and shine it on the screen. Do you see the faint image on the screen?? You could have a defective backlight inverter, defective power supply, or a main board issue. You set will require diagnosis to determine.

While using my compaq cq61-412nr notebook my scree will suddenly go blank when i open and close the lid a coulple times it returns then blackouts again


It sounds like you have a bad LCD DC inverter board. This device low voltage DC current into high voltage AC current, which is required to power your LCD screen's back light. Here is a simple test to determine whether your DC inverter board is bad:
1. Power on your computer 2. If the screen initially turns on, either wait for it to go black, or perform any action that you know consistently makes it go black. 3. Find a standard flashlight and shine it directly at the screen. If you can see your display with the light shining on it, then your inverter board needs replacing. You may need to maneuver the flashlight to a particular angle to see the display through the glare of the flashlight on the screen.
Replacing the DC inverter board is inexpensive, if you are moderately experienced with the mechanical aspects of laptop computers. The replacement part will run you between $20 and $40 (here is one that fits your computer for approximately $20: http://www.zlectronic.com/product/For-Compaq-presario--cq61-412nr-Laptop-Lcd-Inverter-Display-Replacement.html). You should not attempt to replace the component yourself unless you feel confident about what you are doing. If you feel better having an expert perform the job, consult different computer repair shops in your area for a price quote on the labor. Be sure to let them know you will be supplying the part yourself; if you have them obtain it, you will almost assuredly be charged a mark-up.

Monitor has power. Will come on very briefly and the go to black screen. Can turn power off and back on and get the same above result.After a 2-3 hour period may come to life...may not.


It appears as if the monitor's back lighting is failing. To test the theory, take a bright flashlight and shine it on the lcd monitor screen when it goes black. If you can see the images that were on the screen before it went dark while shining the flashlight on the screen, then the back lighting is failing. Depending on the monitor, it could have florescent or L.E.D. back lighting, but it's usually more economical to simply replace the monitor with a new better performing monitor, than to attempt repairing the back lighting on the failing monitor.

Blank screen


Take a flashlight and shine it on the screen. If you can see an image, you probably need to replace the power inverter board. It supplies power to the backlight.

TV was playing, then the screen turned black.


If the screen is black and you have sound then lightly press and shine a strong flashlight against the screen. If you see an image around the edge of the flashlight, an image is being 'displayed'. The problem is probably in the Inverter/CCFT or the power going to the Inverter.

Screen went black


Hi this is the way how to examine what's wrong with your LCD monitors. Power on both CPU and monitor. You have to check that if you can see the image on the screen or not by shining a flashlight into the screen, not directly but find the best angle to the screen and take a look very closely. If you can see the icons or any image, there will be a minor problem. This is because of the lamps inside. Some of them were broken and it is very easily replaced. If you cannot see anything on the screen, there'll be some problems with inverter board. You might go get technician to do fix it.

Problem with monitor going black


Hi this is the way how to examine what's wrong with your LCD monitors. Power on both CPU1.gif and monitor. After it goes black, you have to check if you can see the image on the screen or not by shining a flashlight into the screen, not directly but find the best angle to the screen and take a look very closely. If you can see the icons or any image, there will be a minor problem. Like me, I can see window image using flashlight and check lamps inside. Some of them were broken and it is easily replaced. If you cannot see anything on the screen, there'll be some problems with inverter board. If you have soldering tool and want to fix it by yourself, check the caps first. It may cause this problem. Some caps might show leaking or burn spot on the board because of too high temp. If you don't have soldering tool, you better go get a technician to do so.
