Hp pavilion dv4 laptop display works with external display only

Switch the display to the laptops screen. Shine a flash light on the screen and look very carefully for a faint image of what should be displayed. If you see it then either the back light or inverter board is dead. Usually the inverter board. These are housed inside the lid usually runnung alone the bottom of the display. If there is no image then the display is bad. The easiest fix would be to remove the entire lid and replace the whole thing. This will effectively replace all three parts I mentioned, but will be more expensive.

3 red light flashes. left top. left bottom and right bottom. Problem occurs when power is turned on. Read manual and contacted you.

You've got the three red rings.
They light up when there is a general hardware failure in your Xbox.
If your xbox is under 3 years old, contact Microsoft and they'll service it.
If it's over 3 years old, wrap it in a towel, turn it on and let it run.
This is a simple, yet effective temporary fix.

Three flashing red lights

If you have the 3 red lights this is because the GPU and the CPU have heat up you need to stop the heat, you can send it in to do this or you can fix it with a good repair guide

How can i fix the two red rings on the xbox 360

Two red lights means the console is overheating. Don't run it on the floor and especially not carpet. It looks cool standing on it's end but don't do it. The airflow and heat dispersal is much better if you keep it flat.
If you've let it cool down, and it's still showing two red lights, the news ain't good. At this point the damage to the microsolders is done. The only way to truly fix it is to send it back to MicroSoft or have the motherboard "reflowed" by a professional with a reflow machine or at the very least an infrared convection oven. Two red lights that don't go away is a precursor to three red lights also known as The Red Ring of Death.
I've spent many, many hours studying the xbox 360 and have dissected and "repaired" dozens.
The good news is that if it's less than 3 years old MicroSoft will fix it and ship it both ways for free. Call their customer service.
If that isn't an option then do what's called the Xclamp fix. There are videos of it all over the internet. I recommend the 7 part one on youtube. This fix is a very good "band-aid". It "arrests" the damage that's being done to the circuit board while applying pressure to the processors, thereby "reconnecting" the cracks in the solder that are the actual problem. This is usually a long term to indefinate fix but the solders don't RE-solder. They just get pushed back together. Use this as a last resort if Microsoft can't hook you up. And tell them it has THREE (not 2 or 4) red lights. They won't ask you any more questions if you do and it's not exactly lying because it's the same cause and effect and it's their fault. They won't check the lights. They'll look at the work order, toss it on a line and swap the motherboard for a new one then move on to the next one. They do HUNDREDS a day.

Three red light`s on xbox 360 console how can i fix the problem

How to Fix Xbox 360 3 Red Lights
Appearance of the three blinking red lights on your Xbox 360 game console is a familiar problem and in this article I will try to offer some solutions to rectify this nagging problem.
The 3 blinking red lights point to an internal error and might be ascribed to common breakdown of hardware.
Try out this simple fix if you like:
Step one will involve removal of memory units and hard drive.
At step 2, under the system blade run the INITIAL SETUP.
At step three involves declining the insertion of memory unit or HDD prompt offer with a negative reply when the prompt creates the automatic offer.
Finally you need to sync the controller & pop in a game.
Due to the widespread occurrence of the three red light fault, Microsoft is offering a new 3 year free warranty.

Wat is a red eye effect?

I've heard this before. this is pertaining to the main board. this starts off as a video card melt down then your main processors gos and then the power board fails. this is a factory flaw in its design and should be replaceable by Microsoft for free. i would exercise the warranty if possible. don't really know why they call it the red eye effect but, we call it here in the shop total meltdown.

Now have 3 red lights

If you have the three red lights STOP! Don't try to fix it, but rather contact MICROSOFT and get it replaced!! Red lights means that it is a hardware malfunction and you can fix it for a little bit, but eventually it will still be broken. MICROSOFT admitted that they made a factory flaw and it is indicated by the three red lights. Talk to them and get them to send you another system.
