Labtop Screen Remains Blank

When I hit the power button, all the lights come on but the screen remains blank. It isn't in sleep mode and there is enough power because we have it connected to a power source. What else could it be?

    I have an Everex StepNote NC1500, the screen went Black, but I can see an image faintly by looking at an angle.

    I hooked up an external monitor an everything works fine on the External monitor.

    Any ideas? Can this be a do-it-yourself repair?

Connect to external monitor to rule out bad video card. (remember most laptops have to toggle between internal and external display by using the <FN>+ <F?> key, mine is FN F5.)

If the external works then the problem is

  1. Inverter board or
  2. TAB welds at LCD or
  3. CCFL Cold Cathode Florescent Lamps (backlights)

How to shutoff ipod a1236

Turn off your iPod by holding down the "Play/Pause" button for two or three seconds. The screen should go blank, and your iPod will remain off until you turn it back on again by holding down the "Play/Pause" button.2 Let your iPod go to sleep. When an iPod isn't used for two or three minutes, it automatically goes into "sleep" mode. The screen will go black until you touch any of the controls. Sleep mode uses considerably less battery power.
