    Same thing...

  • Anonymous Feb 06, 2009

    HI dudes, thanks for the instructions. Yes, same problem = same solution. Found not the coneection to the control panel but a connection above the lamp - could see it had put back out of connection - cable was tight so assume there was always tension on connection from new and finally released. So dudes a big thumbs up on the tips.

    Powers up and normal projection light goes on but nothing displays not even menu. If you press power button twice it shuts down, so made me think the projector was working ie menu etc but the picture was just missing. Its not the first time this has happened to me. Last time it was about 10 days inside its warranty and Epson sent an engineer out. He said out of the last few repairs he had done on this model 4/5 were a loose connector. he cable tied it up. It still happens though less frequency.

    To take appart as others have said there are six screws on the bottom and one behind the remote control hidy hole (its the top left, small dark screw). Carefull when taking off the cover as there are two connetors attached to the top (menu buttons and the speaker) both of which can be disconnected easierly. One point to remember the unit will only power up if everything is back in place ie put back together, it makes it hard to fault find but I guess its a safety feature.

    Other than that its a great projector which I must have had for 5/6years and still on the first bulb!

Exactly as stated. I removed the bottom and discovered that the ribbon cable next to the lamp was partially disconnected. pushed in back on, cerifies the mane ribbon and put it back together. It works great and saved us having to purchase a new one.

Vubm is exactly right. I opened it up, saw that the largest wireset was loose, tightened it up and it worked just fine. Thank you vubm. Sometimes hearing that someone easily opened it up and saw an obvious problem is all it takes to make it happen.
One small addition to his post: one of the small black screws on the back was also holding on the top. It was the top black one in the remote control compartment on the back. I got frustrated and just broke my off, but when I did, I saw that it was just that small black screw coming in from the back.

Open the projector (6 inset screws on bottom) - carefully rermove the top (there are 2 wire sets attached: one for the speaker and one for the control panel) -- make sure all wire sets are properly seated -- i had one loose set -- reseated it, closed the projector and the thing wotks fine now. every repair facility i called didn't want to deal with the projector, and one person told me i ought to buy a new one

Hp vs17 has white screen at boot. I have eliminated the chord from the tower and the tower works fine. I have audio, no video. Only a white blank screen. It does not blink or flicker. It just stays white....


There are three choices here...bad screen, bad connection, or bad video card, if the card is integrated onto the motherboard, then that part of the motherboard could be bad. If you have access to another monitor or a TV with a vga input, try the computer with another monitor. If you get a signal on that other monitor then you know you either had a bad connection with the other monitor or you lost the screen on the old one. Go back and reseat your video connections with the computer off. Don't ever remove or move cables to the monitor and video with the computer running...the screen can suffer permanent damage. If there is no signal on any monitor, then either you have a bad vga cord or your video graphics card had died.

Blank white screen in my Acer Travelmate 5730 Laptop


Hello Karthik,
This must surely be a problem with your monitor, because you say that you see the white screen while boot up. If this is a graphic driver issue, you may have the problem after booting up in windows. Since its been only a month old laptop, the product must be in warranty for sure. Take away any CDs in the drive, any USB drives and see if this white screen appears. Let us know.

Thank you!

Computer boots fine but the monitor is blank


if the monitor works fine on your laptop, the problem definitely is at the computer, possibly with the video card (if it is using one). it could have loose connection, or parts might have damages. it seems the problem is intermittent so electronic component of the video card could have parts partially damages or leaky components.
if your still using the motherboards built in video out put, try installing a new video card.

White blank screen


Hi...there,

If you got a white screen, then you need to replaced a new AD board. AD board is a piece of component that you plugged your VGA or DVI cables to the monitor. Good lucks, Have a nice weekend!

Well the first and second paragraphs make me say the Inverter/power board must be replaced.

A white display typically means either your display cable (in your monitor) is loose or logic board is dead.

Either one of these things typically mean take it in for an estimate to repair, and if it's too much, buy a new one.
With your luck I think I might switch to big cheap CRT.
