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.

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.

My Sansa E260 screen is too white


go to the settings of your MP3 player and check for contrast or Brightness. Lower either or both of these to get a dimmer screen(Brightness) or a less whited out screen(contrast)

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.

Black screen. Nothing happens. It was working fine this morning. Took it out to play it after work. Nothing. The screen is black.


Does the zune software or Windows recognize the device? if so, you may need to update it, or re-set it.

the zune software and website will have information on how to do this. Hopefully the problem can be solved with an update rather than a complete re-setting of the device.

My screens backlight wont stop flickering


Not really, the screen flickering is due to a faulty circuit inside of the Mp3 player. If you have another one, you might be able to swap out the screen circuits, adn fix it, but this is very difficult.

Screen not working on ipod Need Help


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.
