I'm sorry that the screen goes black shortly after turning on the camcorder. I suggest that you perform a manual power reset and check the operation. Follow the steps to perform a manual power reset:

  1. Turn off the camcorder.
  2. Disconnect AC power adapter.
  3. Remove the battery pack.
  4. Remove the lithium button-cell battery.
  5. Move the POWER switch to the CAMERA position for 15 seconds.
  6. Move the POWER switch to the OFF position.
  7. Reinsert the lithium button-cell battery.
  8. Reconnect the AC power adapter or reinsert the battery pack.
  9. Turn on the camcorder.

My 55ld520 screen goes black, turn off for short time comes back on but then goes black again.


Start simple by using different cables, whether they be HDMI, VGA or standard COAX cables. They could be losing the connection. Also, it's possible the power supply is wearing out and it gets too hot. You might want to simply try some spray air duster type thing to clear out any dust that can make it hot.

When tv turned on will get apicture for only a few seconds then screen goes black, but wil continue to have audio. Cannot pull up menu on tv either


Hello.The screen goes black means that the backlights of your LCD is not working.Maybe the problem is the power supply or the driver board of the backlights.They shutdown because there have a shorted parts on the circuit or power supply. Did you try to reset the power and turned on and get a picture or every time that you reset the power it will get a picture and the picture goes black?

VA1703wb... Monitor beeps when I turn on the pc then goes black


Please read below and look at the pictures of failed VIEWSONIC nd othe monitor before try to DIY repair.
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

Is it possible that my wireless network card is causing my laptop to not start. I have an Everex Stepnote VA4300M that goes to a black screen at startup. THe wireless card & monitor seem to have some...


it could be the culprit but it could also be corrupt system files, bad hard drive, bad motherboard. There could be a number of reasons why your laptop goes to a black screen.

The best way to tell if your wireless card is shorting out the motherboard to cause it not to boot is to take out the wireless card completely from the laptop and then turn it on and see if it goes past the black screen, if it does then you know thats the problem, if it doesn't then it could be some of the other reasons i mentioned.

Monitor screen goes out (black) 2 seconds after turning on


Your site is extremely misleading and fraudulent. I was under the impression that I would at least get a hint at what might be a problem instead of you folks making me wait to get a money for something answer that you could have displayed on your main page. Places like yours have no place on the internet and I'm going to find out what I can do to report you.

Thank's for nothing
