Display screen has a bulls eye


This description has physical damage to LCD display. If the screen has been pressed on by an object or finger too hard this is the out come. Softly press your finger tip on the screen and move it. If the 'BULLS EYE' follows your finger the LCD display is the culprit. I suggest you contact Hummingbird in Alabama for the repair. ROLL TIDE!

HP Pavilion dv5 laptop screen keeps blacking out. I have to move it back and forth to get the screen to come back on... sometimes it takes a few minutes to get it in a position where the screen appears...


You could have a faulty inverter or a CCFL lamp, To determine if you have a LCD screen, inverter or video card problem, read this and follow these instructions.
Defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom: Screen flashs on red/pink and off. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering with dim display or appear black. Picture flickering on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp.
Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

Presario 700 has a blank screen. Started occasionally going to a blank screen, now it stay blank. Will replacing the hard drive correct this problem?


If the laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk is spinning and the hard disk LED is flashing then the hard disk is OK.
Then the fault could be a faulty video cable or connector or CCFL lamp or inverter.
Try reseating the video cable/connector that connects to the motherboard first.
If this doesn't work then to determine if you have a LCD screen, inverter or video card problem, read this and follow these instructions.

Screen Flickers


Hi I've recently fixed 2 laptops with a very similar error, neither of which were Hewlett Packard Compaq's. That aside its a fairly common error and that is a loose connection. Unless you've a lot of experience in dismantling and reassembling laptops, I strongly reccomend taking it to an experienced technician.

I hope this helps

Monitor keeps blank even the power lLED is on green


If it's working fine in DOS, it can only be your display drivers for your operating system. What happes when you start in SAFE MODE? When you PC starts, keep pressing the F8 key, go to Safe Mode. If it works, bring the Resolution down to 800 X 600 and load the new display card drivers. Restart, should be fine.

Koss KS5190 Display mode stuck


I'm not ranked and I'm not a Guru, but I can solve this picture rolling when the problem is "the video was accidently changed from NTSC to PAL and you can't see what your doing to get it back". You will need the remote control unit. First, remove the disc from the tray. Now, turn the unit off with the power button. The tray will close by itself. After the display on the front of the unit goes out, turn the unit back on using the remote control. This will let you know the remote control unit is working. When the power comes back on and the display on the front of the DVD player says, "NO DISC", with the remote control and (very important) while pointing the remote at the player, (Remember to point the remote before pressing any buttons) press the "Down Arrow" button 3 times. This will take you to the "Display" box. Now, press the "Right Arrow" button 1 time. This will take you to the "TV Image"box. Now, press the "Down Arrow" 1 time, this will take you to the "PAL/NTSC" box. If you have done everything as I have tried to clearly lead you blindly to your destination. Press the "OK" button 1 time and the picture on the screen will stop rolling and change from black & white to color. You will have now changed your video output from PAL to NTSC. If you press "OK" again, it will start to roll again. If this did not take care of your problem, turn the player off and try it again.
The previous problem solvers were on the right track, but the track was rough and they just about derailed the train. Thanks to them, I had a track to follow. I had no other information, except what I found on "Fixya.com". MR. CD
