Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ2 Digital Camera

Black LCD screen

You asked me if it was under warranty. It's been over two years. I don't think so. Isn't there anything I can try on my own?

    We do not have a multimeter. In desperation my husband opened the back of the camera and looked at everything (maybe jiggled the orange ribbon) Now the shutter lets it some light and takes funny pictures with stripes.

    I think we paid about$250 for the camera. We could take it to a local camera shop and get an estimate.

    Any advice? Thanks a lot!!

Hi guys. If an LZ1/2 camera has a black lcd screen, the problem is most likely that the flex(orange ribbon) from the CCD is loose in its connector. If this flex is a little skew it will give a strange picture. I normally make shure the flex is properly inserted before using a tiny amount of contact adhesive to hold the securing clip in position.

Do you have a multimeter? do you want to open the camera? None of these things I recommend unless you are fully aware of what you are doing and have had experience doing it before. How much was the camera? You could try and get an estimate on how much it would be to repair the camera.
Keep me posted,

My Acer Aspire 4730Z has a problem: the right hanh part of the lcd does display anything ...its black {thumb length horizontally from top to bottom is always black}...what should i do??

This is most likely an issue with the screen itself. If the laptop is under a year old or still covered by some kind of extended warranty, the only option would be to get it repaired. If it isn't, then you have two options: 1. You can take it apart and attempt to replug the video cable back in and ensure it's making a complete connection or 2. You can use an external monitor with the laptop. Sadly, there isn't any easy option.

I have a blue line on my laptop (permanent). casn it be fixed or I have to renew it ? :(

If it's LCD, it's probably a fault in the electronics of the display panel. Take it back under warranty. If it's under a year then it should still be warrantied. If there is no warranty, it's either a case of live with it or replace it... this isn't fixable by you.

I have a Canon A560 camera. It takes pictures and I can download them to my computer OK. But the LCD screen is black, I don't see any display at all. Pushing the display button does no good.It got...

If your LCD doesn't light up then it's either the backlight or the LCD, you can open up the camera and check the cables before buying any parts. Some LCD screens come with the backlight, some don't; not sure if this one does or not.

IF it was water damage, you probably have corrosion on the main PCB and won't be able to fix it without replacing the board... open it up and check for corrosion!

Hope this helps.

I cant do anything with it the screen is just black nothing on it but the backlight is on behind the black screen i cant do anything on it i cant even call i have to voice dial.

Usually problem with the LCD backlight. Try to get it replaced under warranty with your provider. Out of warranty? = You can get the screen replaced at Blackberry repair or try to repair it yourself for free or have a friend do it using Blackberry Repair Guide. The part is available on ebay.

Dell Vostro 1400 LCD Showing Black Screen

If you connected the laptop to an external monitor via VGA and the display, then it is not "an NVIDIA GPU defect" .

The video chipset connected to the LCD screen is the same connected to the external VGA port, and is working fine since picture is OK on monitor.

More likely the problem is either LCD ribbon cable, or LCD display, the fact that the backlight is working means that the inverter is also working.

My laptop is a Toshiba satellite and after i login a black screen

Hi there. If you've had the laptop under a year, then you can take it back to the place where you bought it, and they can take a look. If anything's wrong, then it can be fixed under the manufacturer's warranty, which is normally for 12 months from purchase.

One thing I'd like to ask, can you see anything behind the black screen? I ask this, as I had a friend who had similar problem, but it was a faint black, with the cursor flashing, and he could faintly see the desktop in the background. I was wondering if this was the same for you.

Samsung lCD monitor displays for 1 sec

This sounds like the backlight in your monitor has gone. I have seen this a bit in samsung LCD's. You can usually tell this by getting a torch and shining it on your screen. By doing this you should be able to see the display on the monitor.

The first thing to do is check the monitor is under warranty. Samsung have fairly lenghty ( 3 years i think) warranties with them. If it is under warranty they will replace it no questions asked.

Otherwise, you could try your hand at replacing the backlight yourself. I'm not too sure of what is involved in this, but know of people who have done it and said it was fairly easy.

I hope that helps, please don't forget to rate my answer if it does.

Sony KDL-40w2000, Row of Dead Pixels, PLEASE HELP!!!

I'm sorry to hear that.
You can try to call them and ask them if they could help you. Just make sure when you call try not to demand anything, tell them you are a lifetime Sony user and you have faith in their product and you hope they can help you on this matter.
Ask to speak to different people or the manager and see how it goes.
Good Luck.
