Samsung TV no sound no picture backlight on and off

Check voltage at the power board. After 120 volts enter the TV, there is fuse then a small high voltage transformer, then a 100 uf rated at 450 volts capacitor. There should be 390 volts DC at the capacitor. Without this 390 volts the TV will shut down.

The light on the back of my phone wont go off. it stays on when i plug it in and also any time i push ANY button it lights up

Check in the Display Settings of your handsets. There you can specify for how many Seconds you like to put ON your handset's LCD Backlight. You can customise it for 5 Sec, 10 Sec, 15 Sec, 30 Sec, 1 Minute, etc.

Dell monitor 15 inch the green light stays on but no picture

It's the backlight supply tripping out from backlight failure, but the thing still stays on. I got it to act right by switching to factory presets with some fast menu action once, but the general solution is going to involve tricking the backlight into staying on; you can look at the thing in bright ambient light to see that the display is still working, but of course without a backlight it's pretty much useless.

Since $100 buys a better and more efficient monitor, just replace it; otherwise of course you can either replace the backlight (or go for one of the projector mods) or convince its drive circuit to put up with it a bit longer. I spotted a bad capacitor but swapping that out hasn't gone well yet....

Backlight issue with the Vista HCx

I called Garmin. This is "As Designed", so we are stuck with this. Annoying, but all you have to do after turning the unit on is:

1) Press Lower Right button twice
2) Press Upper Right button once

Unit will now behave as you directed until you turn it off

Motorola RAZR V3 - Backlight

Try removing the battery for a few seconds then restart the phone. Other than that, it could be a defective switch on the phone that detects when it's closed. If it answers / hangsup when the opened or closed... the switch is good.
