Well for starters, your device is still under the manufacturer warranty, so I would consider tapping that resource.

Based on what I know of LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) The telltale sign of a cracked screen is the blotchy display. Usually cost more to replace the display than to get a new unit.

A craked screen is not normally covered under a manufacturer warranty unless it was damaged under normal use. (hard to prove)

You may have been charged for the cost of an extended warranty by best buy (they usually ask) If so, that would cover theft and user induced damage. Take your receipt back to best buy and see what your options are.

good luck and don't forget to vote!!!

Hp pavilion dv4 2045dx keeps freezing and shutting down


It seems that you have a virus and it is running at boot.
first try to boot in safe mode and see if the computer stay up.
"Restart... hold the f8 key down until you see the boot option menu and select: "Safe Mode with Networking"If your pc still shut off and freezes then is not a virus and it is a hardware issue, possibly power issue or heating issue with the CPU.If it is ok in safe mode, then you need to remove the virus in safe mode. Download antivirus program that support safe mode operation.after successful removal of the viruses, reboot in normal mode and edit your msconfig, to remove any running programs that might be viruses.
If you continue to have a problem, I can log gin to your PC and fix it myself, just download teamviewer and contact meTony

I have an epson DX4050. I currently have a full blank ink cartridge but have one empty colour catridge and 2 other colour catridges which are running low. I want to photocopy a peice of document in black...


First, using B & W to copy a photo will cause large black blotches.

B & W are actually made up of shades of Black. To get the best quality for a B & W photo, switch to "Grayscale"

Next, is the black cartridge full? Are you using any type of refilled (absolutely worst possible choice) or a third party cartridge (second worst possible choice).

Burn-ins?


It sounds like your light engine is on it way out. I would have this verified by a service center. Very costly to replace. They will probably try a new lamp first.

My t-mobile dash


Hi april_tula,

A big black mark (often looks like an ink blotch) on a mostly white screen usually means that the screen was somehow damaged/broken. The Dash is a rather good device; however, it's been known to experience cracked (inner) screen issues on a slightly more frequent basis than other comparable mobile devices.

The company that I work for sees this issue a few times a month with the Dash, and unfortunately it's just a matter of replacing it at this point.

I'm sorry this isn't a happier answer.
Please let us know if you have any other questions!
Thanks,
Jonathan

Yes there is. Unless there is a systems mode to turn the reception to PAL, you will not be able to use this set there. Good Luck
