LED TV - replaced power board but still no backlight? LED backlights do not seem to work.

yes the led backlight for whatever reason is not functioning and that is the root cause of your problem. Unfortunately to find a replacement led backlight is tough as the backlight is normally fixed with the lcd panel and has to match the voltage and all that stuff with motherboard. and if that doesn't match you might short the tv itself. this case is as good as getting a replacement lcd panel.

Headrest monitor says no video. I have 10 inch power connect headrest monitor/DVD player. One plays DVD and the other is a monitor. The DVD player headrest plays movies but the monitor screen is blue and...

Those cables can go bad easily. If you have a meter and know how to use it, try to test continuity on each pin. If that isnt the answer, then either the input of second monitor is faulty, or output of main screen.

Hooking up 2 additional monitors..

you can try to use a y splitter. the problem with that is the receiver will not give you enough "power" to power up the headrest. You will probably lose picture quality. There are amplifiers that can be purchased that will have extra outputs for video, this would be your best bet. It will give you great picture quality.

HP notebook does not boot

Try plugging the external VGA adapter to an external monitor. If you see your desktop or post boot on the external then most likely the lcd screen is bad or you may get lucky and it just be the "backlight tude" Either way I would replace the lcd screen with a new one if the backlight is already shot. You can buy a new screen for around $99 and they are fairly easy to install. Again confirm you have picture to an external monitor b4 you buy a new screen.

How can I use a relative address in the @find function? It changes to a fixed address when I stop editing.

When you include addresses like A2, C10, F15 they are relative addresses .eg: If you have entries like:
in B4 you have saturday
in C6 you have the formula =FIND("a",B4) .....the answer is 2
B4 is a relative cell address, because if you copy the formula across the row, OR up/down the column, the formula changes and the answer changes
To make it an absolute address you have to type a $ in the cell address. If you type the cell address formula as $B4, it means wherever you move to or copy the formula the B will not change
If you type B$4 the row no 4 is ABSOLUTE or fixed.
$B$4, both column B and row 4 are fixed. If you move the formula anywhere the cell reference will not change.
Summary B4 is a relative cell address
$B4 is absolute address (B is fixed)
B$4 is absolute address (4 is fixed)
$B$4 is abso;lute address (Bis fixed, 4 is also fixed)
Hope this answers your question

Lcd monitor goes black

Try a different monitor (a friend's) on your computer, if it works OK the problem may be with your monitor. If it does the same as on your monitor, the computer video card may be defective.

Try your monitor on a different computer (a friend's) etc. You will figure if anything or what is defective. Then you can decide to repair or replace.
