Hi? My Sony Projection T.V model KP-FX432M91 is taking time to power on and once it has powered on it work fine.what might be the problem?

Power button may need to be replaced. Try turning on via remote.

Some TVs need to warm up before coming on. Hitting the power button several times may in all actuality be Turing it off and on.

I have Vaio E-Series. I closed several programs quickly and now the "Logging Off..." screen has been up for an hour. The laptop will not shut down.

Go ahead and hold the power button down until it shuts off all the way. Unplug your laptop and remove the battery. Now hold the power button down for at least 30 seconds and release. Plug in the power cord but leave the battery out for now and turn it on. If you get a message when it starts up just choose to start normally. It should come right back on unless there is another problem that you haven't listed. Once it comes back on you can put your battery back in and all should be fine.

Some time no display, normaly server work fine,...

I have same problem with my previous DELL and now with my new (1550) onr too.

Sometimes when starting up the laptop with own display (not remote one, which this problem has never occured) the display just keep to be black. Sometimes it helps to close dislpay (to make laptop to go "sleep" mode and then open it up again, but this does not help always).

Maybe this is normal behaviour for DELL laptops ... This is last DELL that I bought.

Either the power supply is going bad (power light will be orange or off when it goes dark) or the screen itself has the problem (inverter?). If the power button stays green but the screen goes dark, that'll be the problem.
