Question about Lenovo ThinkPad SL400 Notebook

Screen is black but I can see (very little) on the screen but only if held at a specific angle. Not able to see enough to work on it. Is there a button I may have messed with that turned the color all the way down?

No. You did not mess you computer up. Its a problem with the LCD inverter. You should have the laptop sent to the repair center and fix it.

Hand held scanner to open a box?


If you were to have it open using any barcode, you could build a circuit that uses the beep of the scanner when it reads a barcode.

If you wanted it to only work with specific barcodes it would get far more complicated, you could right a program that displays a white or black box in a corner of your computer screen and just build a simple light detection circuit and tape the CDS Cell of the circuit on your screen where that box gets displayed.

My Samsung s85 suddenly lost the screen. It has a


I had a similar problem in that the screen increasingly blacked out but when pressed it would come on. Over time it ha to be pressed in a certain spot and in a specific direction.
I fiddled with it and found that there was a short in the flat cable from the body to the LCD (screen).
With more fiddling I found the screen would illuminate and function normally while hanging from the back at a specific angle.
I was able to get back full function of the screen (for how long to be determined) by cutting the stick part of a Q-Tip the width of the flat cable and installing against the side of the LCD when reassembling the camera.
Yes it is chewing gum and baling wire but given the camera cost $150 something and just to have Samsung look at their bad design that crushes the flat cable cost $60 ... it works for me.

Phone display is very dim-can barely read


Well, first you will have to check your options, if you can read it enough to get in there.  You may have the backlight turned off.  If the backlight is not turned off, then you probably have a bad backlight and will have to take it to your provider to get it fixed.  Replacing a screen/backlight is not something I would attempt to do unless you are certain you know exactly what you are doing as you can render the phone completely useless.
