Is the power source good - AC adapter or batteries?

If ok, it sounds like the backlight for the LCD display is going bad. Many LCD displays these days have an integrated backlight that is built into the display so the entire display will need to be replaced.

Let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good Luck,
- Jim

    It depends on the quality (resolution) and size of the screen and how readily available it is. I have not purchased screens for a MP3 player yet but I have purchased them for digital cameras. They are not hard to replace at all. I wrote an article on how to replace a screen for a camera. See the following link.

    The procedure will be pretty much the same for almost any device. The difference being the dissassembly of the the device.



    The cost for for the Kodak screen was $31.00 but it may be less for your player if the screen is smaller and requires a lower quality (resolution) display.

Screen has gone black, all other operations work fine....


i would imagine that the screen has gone bad.sense you said it started to fade..screen replacement is very easy on the V3. There are 4 screws on the cover under little rubber pucks.Then gently pop the back off.and you'll see the camera and the ribbon cables ..undo them carefully, the rest is very self explaining.

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

Inspiron 6000 black screen


I think your talking about your screen fading out.
This is normal. LCD screens do slowly fade out over time. They have a life span.....If this is indeed the problem, then you have 2 choices.

1) Get the screen replaced.
2) Get a new laptop.

My advice would be getting a new laptop as the prices are getting lower every day. Most likely this is the cheaper option.
