Hi,

If when closing you have intermittent display, then chances are:
1. cold solder or loose connection;
2. part of the PCB is grounding or touching something;
3. misalignment of board causing #1;

It is a physical/mounting problem and not electrical in nature. Sometimes it help putting some sort of adhesive to the back of the board to keep it in place when closing.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

TV intermittently does not display picture. Back-light and audio are OK.


if reseating connectors and ribbons (assuming you've cracked the case open yourself and gotten your hands dirty...or atleast scratched up lol) then I would have to say it sounds like an issue with the logic board or maybe a particular component overheating? it sounds tedious but grab yourself a magnifying glass and look at your individual capacitors and resistors for any physical damage especially what I call, "bursting....." where it looks like they're puffed up and popped from the inside.. sometimes a capacitor will blow and not completely lose it's top so it works intermittently the same with resistors in my experience.... hope this helps.

2006 trailblazer factory installed DVD has sound but no screen. The screen intermittently comes on, it stays on once it works but if we turn the vehicle off, we get the intermittent behavior. Has an


the factory dvd decks are designed to disable the dash display when the car is running, to negate distracted driving. the factory wires the rear seat dvd displays only to work when car is running, and the dash to work only when the car is either acc, or, possibly, in park.

if the dash is intermittent, and, especially, if the dash display has some dvd video while running(or, more dangerously, when in drive) then a previous owner likely tried to bypass this safety feature by crossing wires under the dash, and did a poor job.



otherwise, lcd screens can become intermittent, in regards to powering on or off, if the backlighting regulating circuits start to fail. this would be an issue with the deck itself, and is merely due to old age (nearly 8 years)

. the hallmark of this problem would be if you were to hold a flashlight to the screen, and see a faint display,- simply lacking the florescent back-lighting.

Furnace intermittent on Comfort Control


It depends on what mode the unit is in when your looking at the screen. No call, no display. No errors, no display

White screen or some times white vertical lines at start up


I had similar problem. Sometimes the screen goes white while working under windows and repositioning the display, but most of the time it goes white during power up. I decided to check the display cabling by removing the speaker/power-button panel and display coverings. Although I couldn't find a loose cable, the display was consistently working properly. I put it back together and so far so good.
To expose the wiring:
1. Power off, unplug power cord, and remove battery.
2. Open display all the way flat with the keyboard.
3. The speaker/power-button panel is also the cover for the display hinges. You can pry the panel off by prying up the hinge covers from the sides facing center.
4. The inside display covering is fasten with four screws in the corners covered by the rubber bumpers.
5. The outer display shell is attached by 6 screws. 2 on each hinge and 1 on either side of the LCD unit.
6. The mic and camera cables can be unpluged by gentle prying the plugs out.

Blank screen with lines


The main logic board is bad. Probably an intermittent connection between the MLB and display interface, or the BGA chip needs to be reheated. Try banging it on the table, or twisting/torquing it. Loosening the screws can help sometimes, or just taking it apart and reseating all the connections does the trick.
