Question about Sony VAIO VGN-FS840/W Notebook

1 Answer

The lights all turn on but the screen will stay dark most the time, occasionally the sony screen will come up but the chime wont sound and it will stay on the sony screen. Even less frequently the sony screen comes up, the chime sounds, and I can continue to login but at a useless speed. Any ideas what it might be? I have the light codes and all the lights seem to be normal, I cant get into safe mode. I assume its the harddrive

I have a sony KDL 46xBR2 when I turn on powers up green light stays on but a dark gray screen no picture or sound


The green light merely indicates that power is getting to your TV. The symptoms you describe point to internal power supply failure

My Vizio LCD TV screen fades to dark. Sound stays on.


I w having this same issue when watching a Blu-Ray disc. I found it to be dependent upon what picture mode the TV was set to. By this I mean certain picture modes would cause the TV to dim during dark scenes of a movie. Changing the picture mode helped a lot.

My toshiba A200 screen occasionally turns black and music also stops. When i try manually restarting my laptop, sometimes it works but most of the time it doesnt boot at all. Sometimes it doesnt even go...


This sounds like a hard drive is, or has failed. Either that or the RAM (memory has gone bad)
Did you let the laptop overheat? Was it left on for a long time? Or is this just an old machine ?
I would replace the hard drive, and reload the operating system, that is if you really want to keep the laptop. If that solves it great! Also, did you notice if there are any "beep" noises, or error messages when it acts up? Often times, you can go on the internet and find out what the messages mean.

Screen dark,wont stay on. 52hm95


Here's the online manual for your TV:

http://www.tacp.toshiba.com/tacpassets-images/models/42HM95/docs/42HM95_om_e.pdf

Read the section about the red/green lights in front. It sounds like the lamp went out. Mine consistently goes out once every year to year and a half. If you plan on keeping the television, purchase two bulbs, so you have one on hand in case your new one goes out.

Good luck.
