My lenovo laptop has a black screen

Can you hear beeps and the hard drive starting up?
Has the unit been dropped?
Without much info it sounds like it could be either the LCD panel or as simple as a connector coming lose between the board and the screen.

Display fades away and colores waile reading

Replace it with a new LCD Inverter, you can address the following issues:
Screen image, but the power light stays in
Dark display, but still readable
Flashing on and off of the screen between 1/2 to several seconds
The power indicator stays on, but no display and sound
Screen images, but LCD TV still has sound
Picture cycle on and off, as well as high-power LED lights

Laptop screen has gone blank

I assume that your laptop's display has been damaged. Are you sure that other things are working normally? If other components are working, then problem will be with the display unit. Try to repair or replace with new one.

I have a nokia 6220 classic smartphone, the problem i have is that when i switch it on the screen soon fades off again i did have a new screen fitted recently but i doubt this is causung the phone to...


i have a question. when the display fades off, does the unit still functions? i mean do you still able to make a call or receive text messages or the keypad lights still illuminates even the display fades off?

If the answer is yes, then the new lcd that you have just replaced recently is defective. have it replaced again but now to a different source. maybe the lcd that you replaced is not a good quality.

if the answers is no. have your unit reprogram, it has a corrupted software.

Hope I helped you in your problem...
Don't forget to rate me OK! thanks...

Corrupted display on LCD monitor.

Those lines on the right side show sign of damaged T-CON board, part of the LCD panel assembly, nothing you can do but getting the new LCD panel. The bright section on the screen looks like the backlight lamp reflector got out off the guide channel.
Sorry for bad news.

One of 2 things happened....
1) You Blew the Power Inverter... The Power inverter is a thin rectangular circuit board that plugs into the display panel cable and also powers the LCD Bulb.. If This Part Fails - You Lose Light to the Display even though the display will still be on and viewable against a bright light....

2) The LCD Bulb is Faulty... When the LCD Bulb Fails it will typically give pre-warning signs- though not always.... It will give signs like the whole screen has a light orange or pinkish tone to it, but eventually it will blow and no light at all to the Display Panel....

Both Of These Are Repairable....

The Power Inverter Can Be Purchased Off of Ebay, For Around $15 to $30

The LCD Bulb Itself is also Replaceable.. Though It is a Job Only to Be Performed By An Experienced Laptop Tech... Bulbs as well can be bought off of ebay for a few bucks..

My screen lighting seems to be not as bright as it used to be.

I'm going to presume you've gone through all your settings to make sure nothing changed. If you haven't, you can do this by going to 'display' in your control panel.
How long have you had the laptop for? LCD displays unfortunately do fade over time. The life of one is roughly 3-4 years. Lamps can be replaced - I'm not sure if this is cost effective for you, though. Your mileage may vary.
Hope this helps! Good luck.

Display has faded out to the point where it is difficult to read. What to do to repair? Replace a new display screen? How much the cost to repair it?

As the display is manufacturer and model dependent probably your only bet is to get it to a repairshop able to order a new display. my guess is that it is either a fluorescent display and the gas inside it has somehow leaked out, or when it's a lcd display the lcd crystals tend to have a disliking for heat and fade out in the long run. The cost could be anything from a few dollars for the screen ( if it's a generic one) plus labour, up to whatever the manufacturer charges for a replacement screen and hours spent on replacing it.

Sony 61" lcd has bluish spots in screen, any ideas?

Hello, inside the set there is an optical unit with 3LCD panels. Somehow the dust particles came into your set and now the dust is all over the optical unit and 3LCD panels. Only way to solve this issue is to clean the dust. Please contact your Sony dealer. Best regards, Arpi
