Question about Fujitsu LifeBookS6120 Notebook

2 Answers

Bought a new screen til my FS S6120, complete not only the display. The computer boots as usual - but no light - and I moving the computer in the right angel and light I can see the info on the screen. Have tried other displays on the same computer with same result. Could the problem be that I updated to the Intel(R) Extreme Graphics 2 for mobile and the S6120 is too old for the update? When connecting the computer to an additional screen through the VGA, the add screen is excellent. Thx.. Trond

    Thanks. I have also changed the mothercard with the same result (I have three S6120). Only one thing was used in the on both mothercards and that was the card with powersupply, VGA, IR

    I swopped motherboards between two computers - excpet the card with power etc. Another ting, when I closed the screen and the computer goes in standby mode - an then open the screen again, the lights comes on for a minute before it goes off.

    Nothing when repowering. Actually, just after mounting the new screen the everything was working the first week. Then gradually problems occur - lights the first minutes and than black. Sounds as power problems as you mentioned?

    The lcd display with casing includedthe inverter is brand new, and the dispaly works ok if I use it on a simalar S6120. Don't think its the inverter.

Hi

there is a small inverter board on the lcd panel, on the bottom, this part costs something around 40$ and supplies the power to the backlight. this board needs to be replaced together with the appropriate cable to the motherboard. together they cost around 50$.

This will repair the no backlight issue, to get to the inverter board, you need to take apart the lcd display casing it will be at the center, bottom of the screen, easily remove able.

    Hi

    You have replaced motherboard and tried another screen. There is no other possible problem. Must be the motherboard faulty then not giving power to the inverter.

No this is a physical screen or video card issue on the machine. It is definitely not software or driver related, if so the problem would only be in Windows and not immediately when you turn on the machine.

You have tried multiple displays on the machine with the same result? Really, you have purchased and installed multiple new laptop screens for this unit and all do the same thing? If that is the case then it is the internal video card's laptop display buffer / output that has failed. This is a very bad scenario if this is the case as it indicates the video card is bad.... and the video card on that machine is integrated into the motherboard meaning you would need to replace the whole board.

Thanks

    Something must not be compatible then, it was the exact same motherboard you replaced it with, just a new one (not refurb / used, correct) and the exact same new screen as well?!

    I suppose it could be a power problem, but that would be extremely rare, but in this case you have eliminated all other possibilities. It's possible the screen itself is not getting enough power...

    Strange, and please confirm, when you turn the machine completely off, then re-power it on, you get nothing on the screen at the beginning? No splash screen, nothing like that?

    Thanks

A mannuel for a sylvania netbook


  1. Turn on the Netbook Start up the Netbook as usual, but instead of watching it load, immediately press the F2 key until the Setup Utility screen appears.
  2. Disable the Boot Booster Use the arrows to select the Boot tab. Click the Boot Booster option, then press Enter to disable it. Move to the last tab, then select Exit and Save Changes.
  3. Restart the Netbook Restart the Netbook, and press and hold F9 as the computer restarts until you see the loading screen. Click the "?" key to confirm when a message appears asking if you want to perform the operation.
  4. Wait as the process completes Do nothing as the restore process starts and completes. No human interaction is needed to finish the process. The computer reboots on its own and makes new configurations. The computer then automatically restarts again. At this point, the computer is now fully restored to its factory settings.

Lenovo B560 screen goes black after boot


Reinstall your operating system.

No disiplay on the screen of the laptop and on the external monitor


No display on either? Does it sound like the computer completed the boot cycle? Do you hear fans running and the hard drive spinning?

What happens when you hit the power button? Do you hear any beeps or see any blinking lights? Does anything post to the screen during the boot cycle?

If the boot cycle completed and you see no display on either monitor, then your video card is bad.

My ViewSonic computer monitor keeps displaying a Vga Not Support Message upon booting then the message Out Of Range comes up on a completely dark screen. Need Help


It sounds like the computer is trying to use a resolution that the monitor cannot handle. Boot into safe mode by pressing the f8 key during boot up and select safe mode. Once booted, right click on the desktop and select properties. In settings lower the resolution by moving the bar to the left and reboot.

I would move it all the way down, you can then move it up a step at a time once you are in normal mode again.

Hope this helps

No post screen, cant access cmos settings. but windows starts as usual just a blank screen til then?


Hi,
Its possible that your cmos settings were changed prior to this problem so as not to display cmos settings options at boot up. Have you tried resetting your cmos settings to fix the problem? You can do this by a jumper which is usually found on the mother board named "clr cmos" (clear cmos).
Let me know if this is of help or not.

Laptop LCD display problem


The backlight is the light bult that illuminates the screen. Before it finally goes out completely it will turn your screen a pink color on startup (and then usually become brighter and the pink fades). It is also possible that the backlight, also called a Cold Cathode Flourescent Light, CCFL, died an immediate death. But usually they take a while and signal with the "PINKNESS" first. If you found that your computer is working just fine connected to an external monitor (and you moved the base of your laptop around while connected to the monitor to be sure and left the computer on for a long time) then you have verified that the screen is the problem. It is usually two things: (1) the inverter, a circuit board that increases the voltage to supply the LCD which eats around 700 volts (yeah baby); or (2) the backlight itself. The first problem is a relatively easy and inexpensive fix. You can find how to replace an inverter by downloading the Hardware Maintenance Manual for the T40, T41, etc., from IBM/Lenovo's site. Replacing the backlight itself, a bulb that is like a strand of speghetti and even more delicate, is a tougher job. I would suggest purchasing a replacement screen in that event rather than replacing the backlight yourself. (The HMM probably does not show you how to replace the backlight/CCFL as it is a potentially dangerous job.) That suggestion assumes you can find a cost-effective replacement screen and do not mind opening the TP and putting the new screen in. At least look at the HMM to see what is involved. Good luck.

Dell m992 screen problems


If you notice, when you see the windows start screen, its usually "big and dopey". Thats because the video drivers aren't being used yet. If it is blanking out right after you see that screen (with the scrolling bar), my guess is it's a corrupt / bad video driver.

Was any other hardware added recently?
