Connect an external monitor, to initially see if it's related to your screen or the inbuilt video card. There will be a key combination on the keyboard to activate the external monitor. Pls report the results here. And whats "Hello Great house"??

Blinking power led


Common error of RAM malfunction. Try changing the RAM, or upgrading to a bigger size. Ex; 1gb to 2gb or 1gb to 4gb. If the system you are using only operates on paired memory then make sure you get two of the same RAM cards.

Step by step
1. Shut down the PC and unplug.
2. Give the system about 1 min to completly powerdown.
3. Remove case cover.
4. Locate the RAM slots.
(Make sure you ground yourself by touching the case frame)
5. Remove the old RAM cards and install the new ones.
6. Place case cover back.
7. Plug system and power up.

(System should reboot with no problems)
Hope this helps

CANT GET full screen on my 22 inch tv


Hello tbcb83,

Welcome, and thank you for using FixYa!

Your issue is most like caused by the video source you are veiwing being at a smaller resolution than the TV can actually display. Example: If your TV can output at 1366w x 768h and your video source is only 640w x 480h, then you will see black boarders on the left and right side of the screen.
The video source is smaller than the screen display limit, and unless your TV is set to "Auto Fit" your will have to use the optional settings of "Wide", "Panaoramic", or "Zoom" to get the image to fit the screen, or as close as possible.

Have a great day!

Hello, a few months ago when i started my laptop a135-s4427(psadou-03h00p) the color of the starting logo was a bid redish while on desktop or opening a page it recovers plus a bit flickering. last week...


If you power it on and you see an image but it then goes black, that means your screen and components is/are working fine. There is a loss of "communication" from the motherboard to the video controllers and drivers to the screen. If you do see an image for a split second at bootup but it then disappears, your screen is fine. If your screen was bad you would not see anything. I suggest you not spend a dime with that "expert" because it sounds like they are just trying to make a buck. It will not resolve your issues by replacing the screen.

Here are a few things you can try:

* Pull the battery out of the laptop and remove the power cord. Press the power button and hold it down for 20-30 seconds. This is to drain any and all residual power from the laptop. Then release the power button, put the battery back in, plug back in the power cord and attempt to power up.

* Keep screen at 30 degree angle (just wide enough to reach in and press power button). There could be a malfunction with the sensor that detects the lid being open or closed. Once the power button is pressed, keep the lid at the angle (partially closed) and see if it boots up. Give it a full three minutes or so to see if it works.

* Try the combination of the function keys that are meant to switch the display to external.... It is different for different computers. Normally it will consist of something like FN + f4. Try looking for the little icon to indicate an external display. You can also try using these combinations of function keypresses: Alt+Ctrl+F1 and Alt+Ctrl+F3 and Alt+Ctrl+F11

* Check and see your display hardware/drivers/onboard controllers functionality - if you connect an external display you should see your desktop without a hitch.



If none of the above helps, please let me know and I will continue to assist you in troubleshooting.

I droped it and the screen wont turn on


Hello,

Since you said the phone drop from you, it is possible that the screws that attach the screen of your phone is not tight anymore.

I suggest you get a torx6 screw driver, power off the phone, remove the battery and turn the the phone over.

Carefully remove the front cover of your phone that leads you to your phone screen.

Use the torx6 screw driver to tighten all the screws of your screen very well to the panel of of your phone.

Recouple your phone back, put the battery and power on, the screen should display.

But if the screen did not display, it means the flex on your phone is bad and will need to be replaced.,

So change the flex if tightening of the screen did not work, so change the flex on your phone and your phone will display.

Take care.

VL 1716 monitor. The display blanks out after 20-30 seconds. When I turn the power OFF anf Back ON, the display comes back normal, then blanks out agin after 20-30 seconds. The power light stays green.


This is due to system goes to stand by mode or Hibernate mode. To disable, go to power management and disable or incrase the time for the same.

Revert back for more assistance. Also give your valuable feedback/rating on the same.

Screen does not display


I had the same problem. more than likely your connector cable between the camera and the display has become brittle over time and is beginning to break. as you open the screen the small wires inside the cable are separating. mine went from 30 deg view to 90 deg no display as yours is now, then 30 deg fuzzy display (cant make out the picture like a VHS when it needs heads cleaned) then the cable gave in and snapped. all the way through. Simply not a lasting camera. I got quotes and it was about $200 to fix. for that price these days u will pick up a better camera anyway. Good luck

Jenn-Air Gas Range SEG196 NO CLOCK/DISPLAY


THE ONLY SOLUTION FOR THE BAD DISPLAY IS TO REPLACE THE CLOCK. I HAVE A JENN AIR OVEN TODAY AS A WORK ORDER TO REPLACE THE CLOCK FOR A FAILED DISPLAY.

FOR THE JGW8130DDB WITH NO POWER ANYWHERE, IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAVE A SUPPLY PROBLEM. MAKE SURE THE WIRING IS HOOKED UP WITH THE RED AND WHITE WIRES RECEIVING 240 VOLTS AND THE WHITE WIRE ATTACHED TO NEUTRAL / GROUND.IF THE OVEN HAS A BARE COPPER WIRE AND THE HOUSEHOLD WIRING ONLY HAS THREE WIRES, COMBINE THE WHITE WIRE AND THE COPPER WIRE TOGETHER AND ATTACH TO THE HOUSEHOLD NEUTRAL / GROUND .
UNLESS YOU ARE SURE ABOUT THE HOOKUP IN THE BREAKER/FUSE BOX, DO NOT GO SIMPLY BY THE COLOR OF THE WIRES.
