Your LCD display screen has a bad backlight. You need to replace the display.
This can be done if you do it gently.
1. open halves of snap open case with thin, dull knife.
2. remove battery taped to metal shield, leave wires attached.
3. Remove 6 screws
4. note where display attaches to circuit board and flip over latch.
gently remove display and replace.
5. reassemble.

Press any button to see if the screen will light up. If it does not, then hold the power button in for 15 seconds. If that still fails: Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

When I turned it it has a black screen, the entire screen is black and none of the keys do anything. I replaced the batteries.


I think your keys still work, but you need to adjust your contrast. To adjust the contrast by lightening the screen, press and release the "2nd" button and hold the down arrow. Reply back if this doesn't work. Hope this solution helps!

I changed a setting on the polaroid pmp280-4 and it turns on but goes blank then i cant see what too do or change the setting back can u help me ?


Sounds like you adjusted the contrast to 0. I did the same thing I used a flashlight to look at the screen while holding it at a angle. I was able to see the screen and was able to adjust the contrast back to where it should be. Gl and let us know if this worked.

IPod screen does not display and is all white but plays music


hello, Was someone messing around with the Contrast settings? If so, the Contrast may be set so low that you can't see the information on the iPod's screen. The only way to reset your iPod back to the factory defaults (including the Contrast setting) is to let the battery drain all the way out. Do whatever it takes to let the battery die then let the iPod sit overnight to be safe. Then the next morning, charge the battery and turn the iPod on. The first thing you should see is a screen asking you to select your language. If you can see your screen now, congratulations, this did the trick. If not, you probably need a new screen.

My hp 1730 monitor remains black. I can faintly see the display, close-up, but it is close to black. I just tried it on my other computer and it still does not work


The screen finely went out and it cant display any more. is it old? do you leave it on alot?

The screen probably burnt out. Or you just have the contrast or brightness turned all the way down.

Some 235s had a problem with the contrast setting. When the contrast is set to full the screen turns black.

When you turn on the GPS and the screen goes black, try tapping the left arrow on the track pad a few times. You should see the screen start to lighten. If that doesn't work, tap the power key and try tapping the left arrow a few times.

this sounds like you have left the ipod in a hot car or in the sun too long, if so there is not a true fix for this problem. You can always take it in for a fix at an apple store.
