If the screen isn't visibly damaged(cracked or shattered) it is either the CCFL tube $15 part on ebay or an inverter board that either has a loose connection or is bad. The flex cable rarely breaks unless the lcd was seperated from the laptop and/or pulled on. The flex cable may have come loose from the back of the screen as well but it just plugs back in like anything else.

The cable isn't nearly as fragile as the LCD screen. It sounds like the screen is broken. The flex cable is alot cheaper to replace, so you can always try that first.

Acer 4745g black screen problem


So, if you can hear startup sound then motherboard, RAM and HDD is OK! Try to connect it with external monitor, if it's working on it, then problem in LCD, LCD light or LCD cable. If not working with external monitor then it is video card problem, if card is integrated then you need to reball or change at all south bridge on the motherboard, if video is as module card then just replace it with compatible one.
If LCD cable - disassemble laptop to get LCD cable and test each wire with any multimetr with sound beep and replace it if needed.
If LCD light - try to take LCD screen under good lamp then power on laptop and carefully look to dark screen if you see very dark Windows boot screen then you need to disassemble LCD housing, disassemble LCD, remove and replace LCD lamp with working one.
If all this cant help, then you need to replace LCD at all.

Black screen but i do have sound


HelloCheck the backlight inverter board. If it has damged, most common fault to LCD TVs, there will be no backlight to the LCD screen, and will look black. Your tV has sound output without picture. This means that all other boards ar functioning well. Check the backlight inverter section and CCFL tubes used in backlight assembly. OK.

Hello

I suspect a flex problem

The flex is what connects the screen of the phone to the board of the phone.

what you are experiencing is common with all flip phones and slide phones, the more you flip and slide these type of phones,the flex gets weaker and that may be the cause of the blank screen

What you should do is;

Open your phone,you will see a plasticlike cable connecting your phone screen to the board of your phone(that is the flex)

Remove the flex and fix it back carefully, you should hear a click sound.

Close your phone and switch it on you wont have a blank screen anymore.

if you cant do this yourself,get a person with experience to do it for you

Thank you for visiting fixya

Screen does not lightup nor display


If the flex cable is ok, you're lcd inverter or the actual lcd may be bad. try using an external monitor and see if it works. If not, you may need to call dell for lcd replacement.

Black screen but still able to hear sound. Have tried turning off and leaving off for 24 hours and still no joy


This sounds like an LCD problem. My tv did something like this. Only my screen lit up and flashed random colors.I took it to a shop and was told the LCD was bad and throw it away.I kept the tv and just found a replacement LCD on EBAY for a grand total of $88.Now I can fix my tv for a fraction of an new one. The part number is LTM190M2-L31.I hope this helps.

Flashes a black screen while playing a ps3 game.


It sounds as if the set is losing & recovering sync; these are the signals that tell the set when to start painting a line of horizontal and a frame of vertical. Try to catch the thing doing this while holding the cable from your game system to the TV and whether moving/flexing the cable causes it to go to black or return from it.
