That would probably be the back light inverter board failing. It will eventually stop completely.
When it is off or out you should still see a ghost like image. It is possible the problem is the actual backlight but they tend to be out and stay out while the inverter or power board goes out after something on it heats up enough.

As a rule of thumb on these you need to check the repair costs against the price of a replacement tv. This type of repair/problem is common to any lcd display regardless of brand or type of device.What you have to watch for is that the repair cost isn't more than the replacement tv is worth. I'm not familiar with that brand so I can;t give you any hard numbers. If the inverter board is a separate board then it should cost about $50. If it is part of the main board then you can easily be $450. And yes the repair parts can/will cost more than a complete new tv. If you were to build a tv out of repair parts you would pay 3-5 times what the entire tv is worth.

So you want to check out any tv repair shops, check out if you have warranty and check out what the repair depot charges. Then do a bit of window shopping so you know what a new tv is worth. Use those numbers to decide if you want to repair or replace. The prices on new tv is dropping and if you watch for sales you may be able to get a bigger newer one than what you have.

I changed the batterys in my 1F78-151 thermostat and now the backlite does not work.....


• Display Backlight - (Not available on earlier models.) The display backlight improves display contrast in low lighting conditions. Selecting backlight ON will turn the light on for a short period of time after any button is pressed. Selecting backlight OFF (default) will keep the light off. Turn the display backlight feature ON as follows: 1. Press TIME and RUN buttons at the same time. The display will show "d-L" and "OFF" alternately

Screen blacks out while rest is still on, is a dv7-1285dx


This is a backlight issue. Either the HV/backlight board is going bad or the wires that go to it through the hinge is broken/making poor connection.
Rock the screen back and fourth. if it goes on and off, then it is the wires. If not then probabbly the board.
If it is the wires, then you will have to order the screen (off ebay) with the cable (unless you can order just the cable) or you will have to order the backlight board.

Camera turns on fine. I could view picture and all. Just that when I switch to camera mode a video screen is blacked out. Why is that?


Your have a "Display" button that toggles thru different display modes .. one of the modes turns off the LCD backlight .. that useful if you are in bright light and dont need the backlight .. you have a very nice "transflective" display that works great in bright light without the backlight ... you can get more shots with the backlight turned off on each battery charge .(about 25% more) .

so each time you operate the display mode button you will get a different display .. one shows a hystogram .. one turns off the backlight and one puts the camera in a normal mode ..

if everything is working right then even with the backlight turned off you should be able to go outside or any brightly lighted area and see the picture on the screen ..

check the panel to make sure the panels are the same model number there are more then one part number for gateway lcds for your model and if your laptop uses the xga screen and your not replacing with the correct panel then you will get the problem you are seeing now.even thought the inverter and back light are the same the panel are very differant.

The wired keyboard backlight turnes off too quickly


You would need to go into the Setting Menu and find the Backlight or Power setting to lengthen the display and keypad backlight times. Just know that your battery life will decrease the higher the settings especially since it is a VGA screen.

Backlight issue with the Vista HCx


I called Garmin. This is "As Designed", so we are stuck with this. Annoying, but all you have to do after turning the unit on is:

1) Press Lower Right button twice
2) Press Upper Right button once

Unit will now behave as you directed until you turn it off
