Dell Laptops (Has power no display issues)

1. Immediately run PSA. (Make sure laptop is connected to AC Adapter. Leave laptop off. Press and hold on the Fn key then press power button once).

2. Just wait for about 3 to 5 minutes then you might will hear beeping sounds (no display with beeping sounds) this means that laptop is working fine but no display. This might cause by either the video card or LCD.

3. After hearing beeps turn off laptop. (Press and hold on the power button for about 3 seconds)

4. Leave laptop off. Press and hold on the D key then press power button once. If full screen colors appears this means LCD is working fine and the problem is the video card. If no display from the LCD no colors were displayed try the test again just to make sure. If still the same no full screen colors then the problem is the LCD.

I need a manual for Tripp lite omniplus 1000 lcd


Changing the battery

If your Tripp LIte Omni 1000 LCD display a fault icon and beeps after changing the battery, try the advice given by the buzzerman which worked perfect in this case:


1. Turn the UPS on. Press and hold the ON/OFF button for one second.

2. Run a Self-Test: Press and hold the MUTE/TEST button for two seconds (until beeps several times). The test will last 10 seconds. All LCD Display icons will be illuminated and the alarm will sound. At the end of this process the fault icon and the beeping turned off.

Cant display


need to find out if the issue is with the display, power chord, vga cable, vga card or the connectors...

1. disconnect all the cables from the LCD or the monitor, now just connect the power chord and power on the display and now see if it gives you any display

2. Try swapping the power chord with the tower (if its a desktop).

3. Try and change the VGA or the HDMI cable to test if the issue is with the cable or not, (the cable that usually goes from the back of the display to the tower)

If the issue is with video card then launch PSA on your Dell machine and perform LCD bist test.

To launch PSA:

1. Restart the system.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2. At the Dell logo screen, press <F12>.
Note:
Some systems do not have an F12 key, to access the boot options you have to press the <0> (zero) key at the Dell logo screen.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
3. At the One Time Boot menu, press the <Down> arrow key to highlight Diagnostics, then press <Enter> to begin PSA.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4. Write down any error codes listed.


Steps to perform LCD BIST after PSA is launched:

1. Watch the screen and listen for the color bar test prompt tones emitted by the PSA Diagnostics. If the screen is visible, one will see the PSA diagnostics draw a series of multi-colored bars across the screen. When completed, a prompt asking if the pattern was seen appears, accompanied by a brief series of tones.

2. Press <N> or wait approximately 30 seconds to fail the color bar test.

3. Watch for the LCD BIST color generation and listen for the beeps every 2 seconds that indicate LCD BIST is running.
LCD BIST runs for approximately 20 seconds, then stops. The 3-3-3 or 3-3-4 error code is then displayed when the LCD BIST is complete. If LCD BIST does not initialize, then the system may not have been upgraded to PSA version 3019.

No display lights


Run the PSA Diagnostics and Obtain the PSA Error Code

To run the PSA diagnostics and obtain the PSA error code, perform the following steps:
Shutdown the computer.

Press and hold the <Fn> key, then press and release the power button.
Release the <Fn> key when the lock lights above the keyboard begin to flash or Diagnostic boot selected is displayed in the upper right corner of the screen.

Release the <Fn> key.
The PSA diagnostics sequence begins.
After approximately 2 minutes the system produces a number of alert tones.
After the alert tones, the system produces either a series of low beeps or error codes.

Note:
PSA diagnostics will prompt for input during some tests. The resulting error message does not necessarily indicate hardware failure.
For example, input is required during the color bar test. Failure to input a response will eventually result in a timeout error: 1000-0333 Graphics test timed out waiting for keyboard response. This does not indicate a graphics failure has occurred.


Note the sequence of beeps or error codes.

Initialize LCD BIST Diagnostics



You can initialize the LCD Built-in Self Test (BIST) in two ways, depending on the revision of Pre-boot System Assessment (PSA) diagnostics:
PSA versions 3019 and greater run LCD BIST immediately after failing the color bar test, via user input of <N> or waiting for it to time out prior to generating the 3-3-3 or 3-3-4 error. PSA version 3019 became available in November 2005 on various Dell laptops. The PSA version is upgraded with the BIOS.

With older versions of PSA diagnostics prior to November 2005, LCD BIST runs after responding with a <Y> after receiving a 3-3-3 or 3-3-4 error code.
To initiate the LCD BIST on PSA versions 3019 and greater:
Boot to the PSA Diagnostics.
Watch the screen and listen for the color bar test prompt tones emitted by the PSA Diagnostics. If the screen is visible, one will see the PSA diagnostics draw a series of multi-colored bars across the screen. When completed, a prompt asking if the pattern was seen appears, accompanied by a brief series of tones.
Press <N> or wait approximately 30 seconds to fail the color bar test.
Watch for the LCD BIST color generation and listen for the beeps every 2 seconds that indicate LCD BIST is running.
LCD BIST runs for approximately 20 seconds, then stops. The 3-3-3 or 3-3-4 error code is then displayed when the LCD BIST is complete. If LCD BIST does not initialize, then the system may not have been upgraded to PSA version 3019.
To initiate LCD BIST on systems with PSA versions prior to 3019:
Boot to the PSA Diagnostics.
Watch the screen and listen for the color bar test prompt tones emitted by the PSA Diagnostics.
Press <N> or wait approximately 30 seconds to fail the color bar test.
The system emits a 3-3-3 or 3-3-4 PSA error after failing the color bar test. Wait for two iterations of the failure code and then press <Y>.
Note:
On a working LCD, the PSA diagnostics shows the following message:
Error Detected, continue testing? Yes or No or Retry.


Watch for the BIST color generation and listen for the single beeps that indicate LCD BIST is running.
Patterns of flashing color should appear on the screen. With every color change, an audible beep is heard. If the patterns of color do not appear, and the beeps are audible, an LCD failure may be the issue. If the patterns of color appear, a video card or motherboard failure may be the issue.
IF AN ERROR IS INDICATED, PLEASE CALL DELL SO YOU CAN SEND SYSTEM TO SERVICE DEPOT FOR REPAIR (WE'VE JUST TRIED TO ISOLATE ISSUE TO SEE IF ERROR IS CAUSED BY HARDWARE OR SOFTWARE, OR JUST SOME CONFIGURATIONS)

Thanks and Goood luck! =)

Dell D800 won't boot


you have an issue of no display and as you see that u are betting the knocking sounds, could u plzz let me know are you getting these sounds when you power on the computer with the Fn and the power button, if you are able to listen to the sound but there is nodispaly then its a no video issue . in order to determine whether its an issue with the LCd you can connect an external monitor to the laptop and power on the laptop then hold the Fn key down and then press the F8 key and release both the but keys, look for the display on the m#external monitor , toggle the keys a couple of times , if you are able to see the display on the external monitor and not on the LCD , then u have to open the cover above the keyboard (hinge cover) and reseat the LCD cable, if there is still no display then the LCD has to be replaced.

Let me know once you try these steps...

all the best :)
