I had the same problem, so i took all of the batteries out (including the back-up battery) and then i hit the on button a few times. i then proceeded to reinstall all of the batteries, AAA first, and then the back-up battery after the calculator was already on. it works great now.

Me too! It's been working fine for half a decade. Perhaps it's getting old?

A few days ago noticed my C7 was dark at top of the screen like a shadow. Touch screen works fine. Several days later the shadow has slowly spread down the display leaving the top third of the screen...

Sometimes when we are wearing tight clothes and put mobile phones in the pocket, the screen gets pressed against coins or keys in the pocket. This damages the screen. I think this is the case with you. Now, the only solution remaining is replacing the LCD.

My screen has a horizontal line across the screen

Make the calculator perform a self test: Part of the test is the display of some line patterns. You will be able to see if something is wrong with the screen.

TO PERFORM A SELF TEST (No I am not shouting, but I cannot use Bold fonts nor underlined)
  1. Turn calculator ON
  2. Press and HOLD the ON key
  3. Press the "E" key , the key with an E to its right
  4. Release the ON key
  5. Tests will be performed cyclically until you execute a SYSTEM HALT
  1. Press and HOLD the ON key
  2. Press the and release the "C" key key with a "C" to its right.
  3. Release the ON key
  4. You should see the empty stack.
If you need to repair it, google FixThatCalc.
Good luck.

Samsung 42" Plasma -Black vertical line when turned on.

It sounds like an Intergrated Circuit (IC) has fried. Even on a good day, this is not something you can attack at home. As a tech (and as an owner of that model samsung), I'd need a map & tools to know what's going on. Your best bet in this situation is to contact Samsung and let them recommend an authorized service center in your area. Sorry I can't be of more help, but this is a rather serious problem.

TV: bright line across black screen for several hours.

vertical output ic needs to be resoldered. careful leaving that bright line displayed on the screen as this will cause a permanent phosphor burn into the tube. this can not be corrected once burned unless you replace the tube. mch

Faded screen with lines across screen

hi Jenredd, i think there is something wrong with ccd, if so it is serious... . I experienced some disturbed picture on lcd or whole black lcd due to ccd problem. As u said you pictures are fadded it means may be ccd is damaged. If so you have to replace the ccd at any authorised repairer for fuji. as you mentioned other problem there is nothing common between both. for that i suppose there is some problem in either usb socket or cord , so first check the cord, if it is ok then we can doubt on usb socket. But in both the way you have to go to Fuji . good luck
