Based on your description it could be a loose connection. Externally, this could either be the power cord or the video cable, internally, this could be on any of the different connectors or less likely, a cold solder. Depending whether your monitor is the conventional CRT or an LCD, then it could be on the regulator board or the inverter.

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.

Hey i have a Toshiba Equium M40X-148 and the screen wont turn on. When i power the laptop up the power light lights up but the screen stays blank. Any ideas on what the problem maybe

If you tilt it to the light, do you see a faint image?

Can you connect the laptop to a external monitor and toggle the FN + F5 key to adjust monitor settings to output to the 2nd screen.

Hp flat panel monitor comes on shows logon and then blank screen

Ok, another words, monitor powers up for few seconds and shuts down by itself. If green LED on the front panel turns off as well or stays on?
If stays on, then inverter turns into protection mode because of old backlight lamps.
If it turns off in same time with an image on the screen, then there are some bad electrolytic capacitors in the power supply.

Satellite 1115 blank screen at start up.

Try using an external monitor. If an external monitor works then the issue may be backlight if not then the issue is the LCD screen. the way to test that is after you have used an external monitor to verufy booting and the the system works. then if the machine is out of warranty you remove the bezel anf the screws holding the lcd in place. lean the lcd forward. with a flash light on turn your system on and flash the light through the display if you see your post and or windows with the flashlight then the baclight is bad. if not lcd is bad. If you can not get teh external monitor to work, then your motherboard is bad or graphics card.

Sharp Aquos LC-32D4OU

Comment by Guest, posted on Oct 25, 2008My Aquos has the same problem. I'm not sure how I discovered this, but when I lean the TV forward and hit the power button it will turn on every time. If the screen blacks out and I don't lean it forward when I hit the power button, the screen will just remain blank. It is very weird, but at least repeatable.

- Thank you, Guest. That did it. It definitely seems to be a problem with the TV. Tilting it and hitting the power button helped me get the video back.
