Lenovo 3000 n100 lcd display works but only less than a minute before display goes black. Connect an external monitor and it works fine.


possible problem is your led light on your LCD or its Flex. you might need to have it replaced. Try to check your LCD when it turns black under the light if you can see a dark image of your desktop. If you can see your desktop then the backlight has a problem. If there is no display, your LCD needs to be replaced.

There are two places to look for the problems, the backlight inverter board and the power supply, look for burnt parts, bad capacitors, etc.

No display image.only back light.


Friend, as a mobile techncian for how many years. I encountered many of such problem. Your problem is the lcd connector at the back of the LCD display. a small slot having small pins is detached thats why it cannot display. It is need to be resolder.using a electronic soldering iron. But be careful not to short the pins of the connector. Good luck.

IBM T40 Laptop screen goes black, will not come back


First of all, you have to check whether you can see video signal with surrounding light tilting the screen.
If you can see dim image, all you have to do is replace back-light inverter or fix it. Usually, the fuse is open and you can connect it by simple soldering.
If you can't see dim image, it is another problems.
Give it a try.

Monitor goes black but the green light stays on. I turn the power button off and then back on and it comes back on. It may stay on for a few seconds to several minutes.


Check to see if the image is Dimmed. Chances are the power supply on the FPD is either dead or not supplying power to the back lights.

Your problem is the back lights are not being powered. There is a signal going to your FPD because the power light remains on green, but the back lights are what helps support an image from the Front Panel Display.
The only way to fix this is to open it up.

If its got 3 boards inside((logic-->video, Inverter, Power)) The problem is the Inverter. Replace it.
The inverter is the board that supplies power for the backlights to turn on. The backlights
provide a light.for the LCD Panel(provides color and is the logic. ... similar to a projector.
If its got 2 boards inside ((Logic-->video, Power)) The problem is the power supply. The inverter is embedded onto it.

Simply replace the part with a known good one, and you got a spanking new monitor.

Does it display as a black image, a white image or static? You most likely have 1 of 2 problems. Either your camera (the actual lens if you want to be technical) may have been damaged or you are having an issue with drivers. Go Start>Control Panel>Administrative Tools>Device Manager. Under Imaging devices your web cam should be listed. Double click the description and post back with what the information from that window.

No live picture on Benq digital projector


seems to me like your acer laptop's display is configured " extend my desktop to this monitor", that's why you can only see the desktop background. Go to your display properties and change it to clone display or uncheck the extend display option.
