Question about IBM ThinkPad 570E Notebook

1 Answer

Screen comes up blank(white) when I turn it on.

When I turn on the computer, The screen shows up blank.Sometimes after closing and opening the cover, it shows up. Could this be due to a faulty flat cable which connects the main body to the screen(cover)? One the image comes up, I can use the pc with no problem. If my hunch is right, where can I obtain a replacement flat cable and what would be the parts#/description?

It could be a faulty cable; if it is try ebay. However, it may just be that the cable has come loose off the motherboard where it plugs in at. I bought a laptop on ebay for $50 because "the screen wouldn't work" and reattached the cable and it worked beautifully.

My first guess would be a wiring problem or the controller.
If anything goes wrong with the system, it will default to the defrost mode for safety.

Blank White Screen - No Menu Showing


My Sansa has a similar problem. Sometimes when the Sansa turns on (after the Sandisk logo) the screen will either turn black, blue, or black and white stripes. The player still works, but it is hard to navigate without the screen, obviously. What I end up doing is letting the backlight turn off and then pressing any button. Sometimes when the screen comes back, the display is allright again. But sometimes it takes more than a few tries. Turning it off and on again seems to work a little better, but it is more time consuming.
